To kick things off we're throwing things back into the past and picking our favorite projects from 2015 that utilizes one of our favorite color schemes. Here's a card I made way back in March of last year with a cheery color combo of...

  • lavender moon

  • harvest gold
  • aqua mist
  • true black/smokey shadow

There is a challenge!...  Nichole Heady has a selection of color inspiration cards (based on all of our design team project favorites) that will be available on her blog as a download for all of you. Use these as inspiration to create a card using one of the color combos. The Prize!... One lucky winner will win their Papertrey Ink wish list (up to a $300 value).  Hurry on over and play along!
Edit to add:  Here's my new take on this cheery combo...

A Simple Hello

I'm at it one last time to bring you a final Fresh Floral Wrap-Ups sample. Today's card is all about showcasing the interchangeable sentiment. When paired with the tiny tag these phrases can be made: A Simple... Hello, Bonjour, xoxo, and Thanks.
A nice pop of color (kraft, limeade ice, autumn rose) and a touch of twine really bring this simple card to life. 

Well, that concludes my last look at Fresh Floral Wrap-Ups for you. Just remember... this stamp set and it's coordinating dies will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning December 15th

Bouquet of Love

Hi! Welcome to day three of the December Papertrey Ink countdown.
For today's look at Fresh Floral Wrap-Ups I'm focusing on a valentine/love theme.  
For an out of box take on this stamp set I've paired the bouquet top with the Enclosed: Heart die. I aligned the bouquets along the outer edges and then trimmed off the excess.

Ombre Stripes Paper Collection Countdown Day 5

Hey there! I'm back today for the final day of the November Papertrey Ink coundown.  Everything you've seen peeks of will be available tomorrow!
So, today I've got one final sample to share with you using the new Ombre Stripes patter paper pack.  Sounds like lots of you are pretty excited to add these papers to your own crafty collection.  I know you'll enjoy them!
So, today's layout features a heavy block of pattern paper strips.  I've trimmed pieces from raspberry fizz, tropical teal, plum pudding, orange zest, and scarlet jewel sheets.  Then attached them so that the darkest part of the ombre on each strip was staggered. 
The strips were topped with a die cut sentiment, cut using the Birthday Cheer dies, and black rhinestones.

Well, that concludes today's look at the Ombre Stripes paper collectionJust remember... these items will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning November 15th.
