Wishing You A Merry Christmas

Hi folks! Welcome to day four of the September Papertrey Ink countdown.
Today I've got a combined effort and have used both Splits: Merry & Bright and Holiday Swoosh on this single card.
The background was stamped using the Splits: Merry & Bright frame in a color combo of Aqua Mist, Mint Julep and Limeade Ice.  Then in black ink I combined three sentiment phrases together from the Holiday Swoosh stamp set. Everything was mounted onto a kraft card base. 

Well, there's a quick look at my new Stamping Simply line up for this month. Just remember... these stamp sets and their coordinating dies will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning September 15th

Christmas Cheer Duo

Hi! Welcome to day three of the August Papertrey Ink countdown.
Today I bring you another look at the Splits: Merry & Bright and Holiday Swoosh stamp sets
Here I've paired the Splits: Merry & Bright with a sentiment from Treetops Glisten stamp set.
I placed the sentiment on top off a heat embossed Splits: Merry & Bright snowflake frame. It looks stunning done up in gold embossing powder!
Here I've paired Holiday Swoosh with a beautiful bird from the the previously released Winter Woods stamp set. 
I stamped it in Scarlet Jewel and gold ink onto a kraft card base. 

Well, there's a quick look at my new Stamping Simply line up for this month. Just remember... these stamp set and its coordinating dies will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning September 15th

Introducing Splits: Merry & Bright

Hello and welcome to day two of the September Papertrey Ink countdown!   
Today's focus is on the soon to be released Splits: Merry & Bright. This month's take in the Splits series features a simple snowflake border, can you just imagine how beautiful it will be heat embossed! Add the coordinating sentiment included, or play around with mixing and matching other winter/holiday sentiments with them!
Onto the white card base I stamped the snowflake Splits frame, but before stamping I inked it up in Aqua Mist first and then rolled the edges in gold ink. The shine from the edges of the snowflake coordinate beautifully with the flecks of gold in the twine.

Well, there's a quick look at the Splits: Merry & Bright. 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 September 15th

Introducing Holiday Swoosh

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

For this months release I bring you a couple new addition to my Stamping Simply lineup.  Today I have a peek at the new Holiday Swoosh stamp set, here's a quick look...
Originally brought to you in the Swoosh stamp set, these long script sentiments are now available for the holidays! Use these as borders, or offset them on your card cover so you are just utilizing one of the "tails". There are so many options!
Here I've paired it with the previously released Treetops Glisten stamp set. Stamped a little forest, embellished the treetops with gold ornaments, and then topped it all off with the "merry & bright" swoosh.

Well, there's a quick look from me at the latest from my Stamping Simply lineup. Just remember... everything showcased today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning September 15th

Hellos and Wedding Wishes

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

And of course I bring you a couple more sample of my new designs for this month.
Here I've put to used an extra die cut Splits: Giving Thanks frame that I had laying around.
It was stamped in smokey shadow and then I used my color pencils to add a bit of color to the details of the frame. I stamped the "hello" (from the Tropics stamp set) in a contrasting color (Scarlet Jewel) and then mounted it onto the card base at an angle. 
This one-layer number focuses on one of the sentiments from the Fancy Foliage stamp set.  
The sentiment has built in floral embellishments already placed on either side. So this card front was stamped only once (super easy!) and then touched up with color pencils.  

Well, that finishes up this months release for me. Just remember... all that you've seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning August 15th. 

Now, be sure to visit the Papertrey Ink blog for more crafty goodness.

Shaped Sayings: Halloween

Hi folks! Welcome to day four of the August Papertrey Ink countdown.
Today's feature is Shaped Sayings: Halloween. The Shaped Saying series has always been full of style, but this particular one includes some fun accessories that bring it to a whole new level! By pairing up the sentiment with a crescent moon, stars and bats, you can do a lot of fun layering and dimension! Be sure to visit Nichole Heady's blog for a detail look at these dies.
Here's a good look at the crescent moon and bats layered around the sentiment.
The moon was die cut from luxe silver cardstock, the "Trick or Treat" was cut from Simply Chartreuse, and the bats were cut from Plum Pudding. Between the fun layers I squeezed in a few black rhinestones.  Everything was mounted onto a Smokey Shadow cardbase. 
Shaped Sayings: Halloween pairs perfectly with the Spider Web Trio die set too!
Here I've die cut the spider webs from white cardstock and attached them with a glue dot placed directly in the center. I popped the "Trick or Treat" was attached with a bit of dimensional adhesive and then I finished things off with a bit more black rhinestones. 

Well, there's a quick look at the Shaped Sayings: Halloween. Just remember... this die set will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning August 15th

Splits: Giving Thanks

Hi! Welcome to day three of the August Papertrey Ink countdown.
Today I bring you another look at the Splits: Giving Thanks stamp set. The is the 7th set in the Splits collection.
I am loving the movement that the swirls of this frame create. Here I've contrasted that with a few solid stripes behind the frame die cut, in a color combo of Scarlet Jewel, Smokey Shadow, and Simply Chartreuse.
I switched out the coordinating sentiment for a "hello" from the Tropics stamp set.
The focus for these two next cards is on using this set in ways other than its original "splits" frame form.
Here I've used both the bottom and top parts and stamped them along the top edge.  It adds such movement! Color combo here... Smokey Shadow, Autumn Rose, and Simply Chartrues.
Also included in the Splits: Giving Thanks stamp set are lots of little leaves and acorns.  These can be used to accent the swirls, embellish the sentiment or on their own. Lots of mixing and matching can happen here!
Here I've taken just one of the leaves and stamped a sort of border on either side of the sentiment. I have a feeling this little figure would make a wonderful bit of hand stamped pattern paper too!

Well, there's a quick look at the Splits: Giving Thanks. Just remember... this stamp set and its coordinating die will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning August 15th
