Papertrey Ink Release In Review ( Part 2)

Hello! I'm back to share a few more of my projects for the January  Papertrey Ink  Release that I didn't have ready for the countdown! All of the products I'm showing today are available in the store at Papertrey Ink.


My first card uses the beautiful new Gathered Garden stamps. I decided to try a monotone color scheme for this one. I put a piece of painter's tape across my card about 2/3 of the way up, then blended some Aqua Mist ink above it. With the painter's tape still in place, I stamped the greenery and flowers in Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, and Tropical Teal. The sentiment was stamped in True Black.



  • STAMPS: Gathered Garden
  • INK: Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal, True Black
  • PAPER: Stamper's Select White


***



For this card I used the new Cornered Dies, along with Forget Me Not stamps and Grand Botanical Dies. The background is Soft Stone. For the Cornered Die, I cut it out with Stamper's Select White card stock, but left all of the pieces in. I then colored those with a light pink Copic marker to match the flowers. I glued this down, but left the top loose so I could stick the flowers and leaves in along the top edge. I added a few tiny white dots with acrylic paint.



  • STAMPS: Forget Me Not
  • DIES: Cornered, Forget Me Not, Grand Botanicals
  • INK: Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet, Soft Stone, Spring Moss
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Soft Stone
  • OTHER: Copic markers
***


This card uses the new Latin Motifs stamp set along with Outlined. I just randomly stamped the flowers and burst, stamped the outlined shape for the sentiment and then the sentient. I added a small line of Smokey Shadow card stock to the botton edge. I also added the small pink flowers from the Grand Botanical Dies.




  • STAMPS: Latin Motifs, Outlined
  • DIES: Grand Botanicals
  • INK: Pale Peony, Fine Linen, Stormy Sea, True Black
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Smokey Shadow
***





For this one, I used dies from the new Grand Botanical Dies and some of the greenery from Palm Prints. I first stamped the greenery from Palm Prints in the top right corner, then cut the dies out and adhered them. I stamped the sentiment from Keep It Simple: Retirement in Olive Twist.



  • STAMPS: Keep It Simple: Retirement, Palm Prints
  • DIES: Grand Botanicals
  • INK: Olive Twist
  • PAPER: Sweet Blush, Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet, Prairie Grass, Antique Linen, White
I hope that if you purchased any of these fun new products that this has give you a bit more inspiration to get them out and start playing!

  13. Kay, I couldn't agree more with Tracey's comment about how you do bring out unique ways to use the Papertrey products. Each and every on is gorgeous but since I ordered the Gathered Garden st, that one is my favorite!
    The way you colored in the letters on the second card is genius. I haven't liked this set until your softly colored card changed my mind. :-)

  20. Oh, my, Kay. These cards are fabulous. There is something about each one that is intriguing, whether it's color choice or simplicity or use of product. I'm surprised that I especially like the Latin Motifs card. It is so different from what I'm usually drawn to, but I just love the way you used the black to ground the design. I have to give that a try. Thank you for the inspiration.

  21. Every single one of these is gorgeous. I love the first one and am going to try that monochromatic look. And the third card, with Latin Motifs, made my jaw drop. Everything about it is drawing me in. Thank you for the inspiration!

  22. Each of these cards is a masterpiece. I don't have the stamp sets you used but I have the paper and inks and so many other PTI stamps that will work. You are a great inspiration. Wish I wasn't at work right now - I want to stamp! I think the Thrilled card is my favorite because it's a little funky.

  24. Beautiful cards, Kay. I am in awe of your forget me not card. I usually don't go for the dies with the hard angles but you made it soft and feminine. LOVE it!

  25. Hi Kay! Gosh, your beautiful takes on the new releases are gorgeous. I could use lots of adjectives to describe your talent, but gorgeous came to mind first. I guess I am slightly freaking out as I didn't see your name amongst the 2017 designers for Papertrey Ink. I'm just going to keep checking in with your blog and would love it if you could fill us in on your latest adventures in crafting. I hope you don't stop blogging because you're my fav! Happy day to you sweet lady! Hugs, Stephanie

    1. Stephanie thank you so much for your sweet comments! No I am not on the design team for Papertrey Ink anymore, but I am still working with them in another capacity. I would tell, but I think it will be announced tomorrow or very soon :) I'm not going anywhere. I have lots of new exciting things coming up! Thanks again! :)
