Papertrey Ink Release In Review

Hello and welcome the final post of  previews of all the new Papertrey Ink products!  All of the products you have been seeing over the past five day will be available at the Papertrey Ink online store at 10:00pm EST tonight!  So exciting!!

So here's a look at the rest of my projects created for the November release! I saved some of my favorite for last ;)

I absolutely love how this card turned out! This sentiment is from Betsy's Phrases & Praises stamp set which I adore! I love the verses, as well as the fact that you can stamp them in different colors! I used a piece of patterned paper from the Petite Places Patterned Paper Collection for my background and then stamped the sentiment in Hawaiian Shores and Pinefeather. I then stamped and cut out some of the snowflakes from Fab  Flakes and adhered them around the top of the card. I cut the edges of some of them flush with the card. I added a few clear PPP sequins to finish off this sparkly winter card!

Every Good & Perfect Gift Card

STAMPS: Phrases & Praises, Fab Flakes
DIES: Fab Flakes
PAPER: Stampers Select, Petite Places Patterned Paper Collection

INK: Hawaiian Mist, Aqua Mist, Tropical Teal, Pinefeather

This card features the new Enclosed: Present by Dawn McVey. This stamp set and dies just screamed shaker card to me. I am not so great at shaker cards. I usually forget a step, or make it too shallow or something goes wrong and the thing doesn't shake. But this one worked perfectly the first time! Yay! I used some of the Ombre Stripes paper pack from Maile Belles for the inside. The sequins were a mix of a little bit of everything I had laying around :) I did cut out three of the present overlays for a little extra dimension and the top one I lightly sponged Aqua Mist along the bottom. I cut the bow at the top out of Aqua Mist card stock, and sponged a little Hawaiian Shores ink along the bottom. I tied the little tag on with some silver thread.

I had a lot of fun with this next card! I got a little out of the box and enjoyed playing around with the layout of these cute Mini Slide frames from Heather Nichols.  I cut them out with some patterned paper from the Ombre Patterned Paper Collection. I exchanged the pieces of the pink and green with each other, placing the respective pieces back into each of the frames. I popped the center pieces up with foam tape on two of them, then the one with the sentiment in it, I popped the frame itself up with foam tape. I added two snowflakes from the Fab Snowflakes set to the center with foam tape as well. The Always sentiment is from the Mat Stack 3 Collection, and the tiny sentiment in the frame is included in the Mini Slide Frame set. I added a few PPP sequins to finish it up!

Love love the way this one turned out! I was dying to use the Warm Wishes set again, so I paired it up with the Type Strips III to create this fun winter card. I started by sponging some Aqua Mist ink through a circle stencil to create my backdrop.  Everything is colored with Copic markers, and the star strip along the bottom was embossed with gold embossing powder. The type strip letters were cut out of Aqua Mist and Spring Moss card stock, and adhered with a small square of foam tape. The wishes sentiment is from the Birthday Cheer set.

And for the finale I have this card created with the amazing Sunflower Cover Up die! I watercolored my background with Peerless watercolors, paying attention to the die as I went along, so as to get my greens in the right place. I cut the sunflower die out of Stampers Select card stock and glued this over my watercolored piece. I stamped the hello from the Swoosh stamp set and layered it three times before adhering it to my card. I added some rain stones on the leaves of the flower. 

Here you can see some of the dimension of the hello die. 

And for the inside of the card I stamped one of the sentiments from the Tucked In: Sympathy stamp set by Dawn McVey. I stamped some greenery and little flowers from several different stamp sets. They are all listed below.
