Introducing Background Basics: Circles

Hey there! Welcome to day 1 of the Papertrey Ink November Countdown. Today I'm super excited to be sharing with you a couple samples using my new set for this month, Background Basics: Circles...

Background Basics: Circles

  • features 6 background strips and 6 individual images/fillers
  • will retail for $24
  • can be purchased through Papertrey Ink, beginning November 15th

Now, how about a couple samples?!...Fist up a super simple creation without a stitch of embellishment. I stamped this single background strip across the card in a color combo of Smokey Shadow, Summer Sunrise & Sweet Blush.Stamped a couple sentiments, from All About You & Additions, in True Black. Finished the card off by attaching the stamped panel to a Soft Stone card base.

Next up, another simple number but this time with a bit more dimension and embellishment. Using one of the individual images, I stamped a pattern in a color combo of Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet and Summer Sunrise onto a masked white circle.Masked off the pattern and stamped a butterfly trail and sentiment, both from Happy Trails. Attached the circle, with dimensional adhesive, onto a Soft Stone card base. Attached a die cut and stamped butterfly (also from Happy Trails) and embellished with a Berry Sorbet button. Finished the card off with a single rounded corner.

Well, that concludes my first look at Background Basics: Circles. I truly hope that you've enjoyed! I'd love to know what you think, so please share!

Now, be sure to visit Nichole Heady and Besty Veldman for more Background Basics: Circles as well as Tiny Tags II, Erin Lincoln will bring you Mega Mehndi Medallion. Also, Dawn McVey, Heather Nichols, Beth Silaika & Melissa Bickford have peeks to share with you of their newest sets for the month.

  12. HOw funny, on reading Christina's comment...I entered your blog with trepidation too - lol. I knew I should have waited until after work, I am going to be so distracted at work, thinking about this release. Absolutely fabulous, Maile. On Nicole's blog, she mentioned the strips will be a little too long long for the CD case, may I suggest a DVD case??
