Take Three: Summer

Yeah, this is the last day of the Papertrey Ink countdown! Just think, you will be able to see all the new goodies (in full reveal) tomorrow. I am so excited about being given the opportunity to be a apart of this months countdown and showcase Take Three: Summer with you today. This is the next set in the fun Take Three series (created by Alli Miles), which features fun and funky birds and flowers. This set is available for purchase tomorrow May 15th.

Now, how about some cards using this fabulous set... First up is a combination of both the adorable birds and funky yet super fun flowers. Using Fresh Snow ink, I stamped the images onto Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores & Spring Moss cardstock. Embossed them with white embossing powder, cut them out and attached them to the card base. The white embossing really lets the bright and cheery colors pop off of the simple Kraft cardstock base, wouldn't you say?!
Finished it off with the addition of a couple buttons, a ribbon tab and a sentiment.
Next up is a bit of a fancier take. By stamping one of the flower images in Palette Noir and adding color to the otherwise open flower, I was able to create a gorgeous image perfectly made to stand on it's own. I wanted the focus of the card to be the flower. So, I enhanced it with a few black rhinestones, a piece of the new Beautiful Blooms II pattern paper and a bow made from the new Simply Chartreuse ribbon (I am so in love with this new color, I am a sucker for gorgeous greens).
Finished the card off with a few more touches of black by stamping a label (from Vintage Labels) and a sentiment (from Take Three: Summer) in True Black.
Last and definitely not lease is this little pink number. Using a single flower image, stamped in Versamark onto Hibiscus Burst, I was able to repeat the image to create this gorgeous pattern paper. I am so happy with the way it turned out!
For the focal image I simply stamped the image again in Hibisucs Burst ink, a sentiment in True Black and cut it out. The black tabs are from the new Mat Stack #2 Die, just cut the ends off and adhered them behind the flower. Then wrapped the card with a bow made from 1/8" white silk ribbon.

As you can probably tell, I've truly had a whole lot of fun with this new set. I was really trying to create and inspire you with unique and different ways to use this set, I hope that's what I have accomplished today!
Be sure to stop by and see what Nichole Heady, Lisa Johnson, Heather Nichols, Melissa Bickford, Alli Miles and Beth Silaika have in store for you too!
Thanks For Stopping by and hope you enjoyed.
