Papertrey Ink - March 2011 Release Projects

Hello guys! Well, it's about time I finally shared the last of my March Papertrey Ink release projects with you all. So let me get started... First up, Ribbon Tails. I stamped a polka dot Ribbon Tails strip, in Raspberry Fizz, across a white card front. Stamped and die cut a label, using Basic Labels stamp set and a coordinating die. Then stamped the label with a sentiment from Star Prints and attached it over the stamped strip.
Embellished the label corner with a Modern Basics flower and a True Black button. To give the card the effect of the polka dot Ribbon Tails strip wrapping around the card, I stamped and attached another strip with dimensional adhesive. Then finished the card off with another button.
Here's A Tip: For a little added detail, I rounded the end of the top strip by inserting the end into a small circle punch (like in the photo above).
Next up, Sending You and its coordinating die. I went for a modern approach and chose to stamp these unique flower/flower centers in Raspberry Fizz and Plum Pudding onto a Rustic Cream card base.
Stamped a sentiment focal point, using Modern Basics, and framed it using the Sending You Die Collection frame. To create, I started by die cutting the frame from Plum Pudding cardstock and then I die cut a circle from the center using the Limitless Layers: 1 3/4" Circle Die.
How about some Tag-its #2 goodness?! This polka dot circle frame is just too cute! I stamped it onto Rustic Cream cardstock and cut it out by hand, stamped the adorable bird and attached to another Sending You die cut frame. Then attached the frame over a couple Spring Moss Ribbon Tails strips.
Finished the card off with a few Harvest Gold buttons and a die cut Tiny Tags, stamped with a bird house and sentiment (also from Tag-its #2).
And finally, Flower Fusion #2. I started this card by stamping a number of frames, from Label Basics, in Fresh Snow onto a Fine Linen card base.
Stamped the flower stem twice in Ripe Avocado and topped it with a Flower Fusion #2 die cut. The die cut flower was stamped with Background Basics: Gingham (in Berry Sorbet), the outline Flower Fusion #2 flower (in True Black) and then topped with a button. Finished the card of with a sentiment, also from Flower Fusion #2.

So there you have it! All the supplies used are listed in the Papertrey Ink Gallery.
