Abide In Him

Hey there! I'm back today for the final day of the May Papertrey Ink countdown. Everything you've seen peeks of will be available tomorrow! 

And of course I bring you one more sample of my new design for this month. Splits: Thank You...
The base for this card is a sheet of Ombre Stripes pattern paper adhered to a white card base, in the Winter Wisteria color. 
The Splits: Thank You frame was inked in an ombre effect to match the pattern paper. I used Royal Velvet in the center, Winter Wisteria on the top, and Enchanted Evening on the bottom.

Well, there's a quick look at the Splits: Thank You set. Just remember... all that you've seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning May 15th.

Under His Wings...

Hi folks! Welcome to day four of the May Papertrey Ink countdown.
I hope I've done a good job so far (during this months release) in showing just how versatile this Splits: Thank You stamp set really is. Today is no different, I've got another take on this image and its coordinating die.
For a pop of color I die cut and stamped one half of this frame onto a piece of Ombre Stripes pattern paper. Turned in onto its side, attached it with dimensional adhesive onto a square card base (4.25" x 4.25"), and stamped a sentiment from the soon to be release Walk By Faith stamp set. 

Well, there's a quick look at the Splits: Thank You set. Just remember... all that you've seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning May 15th

Black, White, and Gold Thank You Duo

Hi! Welcome to day three of the May Papertrey Ink countdown.
I am totally on a neutral kick these days.  I've got a simple, yet pretty, card duo for you today using the new Splits: Thank You stamp set. 
I simply stamped the focal frame in True Black ink onto a white card base.
With and extra wide sentiment strip I was able to hide the split part of the frame and make it appear a bit more seamless. Then finished the image off with a few stamped gold dots.
This next super simple card uses the small additional image included in the Splits: Thank You stamp set.
This small floral was stamped as an accent image to help draw your eye into the sentiment.

Well, there's a quick look at the Splits: Thank You set. Just remember... all that you've seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning May 15th

Splits: Thank You Card Duo

Today I bring you another quick look at the Splits: Thank You stamp set... 
This time I've got a duo for you, using the frame in a different way. I stamped the top portion on one card and the bottom onto another card.  One stamp, two cards, and each with their own look.  
The white panels were die cut using the Sentiment Splits: Angle Vertical Die. The frame image was stamped in Smokey Shadow onto a kraft card base. 
The coordinating sentiment was stamped above the frame image with accent images on either side. For a pop of color a tiny strip of Lovely Lady cardstock was layered underneath. 
Here I've stamped the other end of the frame at the top of the card. 
The "Celebrate" is from a previously released Splits set... Splits: Celebrate, and it's stamped below a pop of gold cardstock. 

Well, there's another quick look at Splits: Thank You stamp set for you. I'll be back tomorrow with more! Just remember... this stamp set and it's coordinating die will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning March 15th

Introducing Splits: Thank You

Hi there! Welcome to day one of the May Papertrey Ink countdown.

For this months release I bring you another addition to my Stamping Simply lineup.  Today I bring you the fourth in the Splits monthly series... Splits: Thank You
So, Mother's Day was last weekend and for that special day my boy picked out my flower bouquet combo all on his own. I used them as my color inspiration for today's card... Lovely Lady and Canyon Clay.
The flower and leaf frame was stamped in Smokey Shadow onto a white card base. 
A few dot formation are included in this set, giving you options for adding a pop of color to the flowers. I finished the card off with a kraft banner stamped with the coordinating sentiment. 

Well, there's a quick look at Splits: Thank You stamp set. Just remember... this stamp set and it's coordinating die will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning May 15th

All You Need Is Love

Hey there! I'm back today for the final day of the April Papertrey Ink countdown. Everything you've seen peeks of will be available tomorrow! 

And of course I bring you more of my new designs for this month. It's sort of a mix and match sort of bunch, but each one definitely holds their own...
I love how perfectly Splits: Get Well Soon pairs with the previously released So Striking collection!
Here I've paired the bottom of the Splits: Get Well Soon frame (with the lightning bolt) with a sentiment and rain drops from the So Striking stamp set. Just a note... The sentiment here was trimmed using a paper cutter as well as by hand with scissors, this allowed me to let the letter "g" do its thing.  Then that sentiment panel was attached using dimensional adhesive. 
My next one features more of the Super Succulents pattern papers, stacked under a die cut black Shaped Sayings: Mother's Day.
Just a note... The baker's twine was tied before I attached the die cut sentiment, I just sort of wiggled it in around the bow.  
I'll finish off with a look at the rest of the Super Succulents collection. The plant hanger I showcase earlier (here) also comes in die form.  And both are such fun to work with!
I wiggled a few die cut succulents behind and in front of the plant hanger, creating a bit of a realistic look. This color combo includes Terracotta Tile, Simply Chartreuse, Ocean Tides, Mint Julip, and True Black.

Well, there's a quick look at the Super Succulents collection and the Splits: Get Well Soon set. Just remember... all that you've seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning April 15th.

Orangey Card Trio

Hi folks! Welcome to day four of the April Papertrey Ink countdown.
I've got a fun little orangey trio to share with you all!  Each one using an assortment of the new goodies I've designed for this months release...
Up first, Super Succulents stamp set and coordinating die.  I stamped a row of mix and matched potted plant on top of a kraft cardstock strip. Using a color combo of Fine Linen, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Simply Chartreuse, and Ripe Avocado. Just a note... I used the masking technique to add the shorter bits of string of pearl succulents to the smaller pots. 
The sentiment was stamped in true black.  For a bit of pop and dimension I attached an additional black "happy" die cut directly on top of the stamped one. The word dies perfectly match words included in a few of the Super Succulent sentiments from the stamp set.  It's a super convenient way to add a little something special to your projects. 
Here's another look at Splits: Get Well Soon
I stamped the frame on either side of this colorful opening in True Black.  A strip of pattern paper from the Super Succulents paper pad adds the perfect pop.
Last but not least... Shaped Sayings: Father's Day die.  I borrowed this layout from a card I made last month, here
It's a super easy layout that lets you get good use from your pattern papers (I used the Super Succulents collection here) and any of the dies from Shaped Sayings collection.

Well, there's a quick look at the Super Succulents collection and the Splits: Get Well Soon set. Just remember... all that you've seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning April 15th
