Papertrey Ink Release In Review



Hello and welcome back to our final Release In Review post for the January Papertrey Ink release.  All of the products you have been seeing over the past few days will be available at the Papertrey Ink online store tonight at 10:00pm EST! So much goodness!!

This is going to be a long one! I have so much to show! Since I didn't get my butterflies dies in time for the first group post, they also have been added to my post today. I am in love with this new release... seriously!!



I'm going to start with my butterfly cards! This one is using the new Bitty Butterflies stamp set and Bitty Butterflies Cover Plate. I cut one cover plate out with the chocolate brown card stock , then I stamped each of the butterflies in different colors. I added a small piece of Scor tape to the back of each one then inserted them back into the cutout spaces and bent them slightly so they would stand out. I stamped the sentiment and added it with foam tape.

And this one was created with Dawn's new Enclosed: Butterfly stamp set and dies. I used some of the Stars & Scribbles paper for my background. I cut the back of the butterfly out of some watercolored paper and glued three layers of the overlay on top. I glued a tiny strip of the Ombre Striped paper along the bottom edge, then added the embossed sentiments with foam tape.

For this one I used the new Cover Plate: Butterflies. Such a beautiful die! I watercolored some paper for the background. I cut the butterfly cover plate out of Stamper's Select white card stock and glued that down over the watercolor paper. I took the background pieces of white and went around the edges with my Copic makers, making tiny dots to make the butterflies stand out. The sentiment was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.

This card uses the new Keep It Simple: Baby and Tucked In: Baby stamp sets along with a previously released stamp set called Baby Button Bits. I also used the Tag Sale: Quilted die with some Lovely Lady Patterned paper to layer everything on.



And on the inside I stamped one of the sweet sentiments from Tucked In: Baby. I stamped some little leaves from Turning A New Leaf stamp set and added a little flower from Bitty Button Stacks.

This card features the beautiful new Bold Blossoms stamp set from Dawn Mcvey. Dawn does the most beautiful flower sets! I just love this one! I added lots of little details to the flowers and leaves with my Copic markers.



You can see all of my details here in this close up. I even added a few green dots on the card itself in the background. That was kind of scary since I had finished the whole card before I did those! I so hoped that I wouldn't mess it up!

And for my last project I used three new products coming out tonight: Thanks Coach, Go For The Goal, and Pennant Flag Dies. Both of my kids played soccer when they were young. Neither one of them were any good at all, but boy did we have fun going to the games and watching them play! My little boy, who is not so little anymore, had a purple uniform, so I made my card in the colors of his team. Such fun memories :)



I stacked the sentiments for dimension and I added the stars from Betsy's Scene It: Celebration to the background. I also stamped the Go For The Goal sentiment on the banner for a little visual interest ;)

DIES: Go For The Goal, Scene It: Celebration, Joyful Christmas, Thanks Coach, Pennant Flag Dies

  7. The bitty butterfly cover plate card is a box of chocolate with colorful jellies inside waiting for me to taste. I adore this card and can almost smell the chocolate! I also think the butterfly cover plate card is just beautiful with its tiny polka dot watercolor effect background. These are GREAT cards!
