Movers & Shakers

Hi there! Thanks for joining me for the final day of the Papertrey Ink February Countdown. It's also group post day two and today we bring you samples of the Movers & Shakers product line. I'm thrilled to be working with this line up because its possibilites are endless and it's a ton of fun making and seeing a card come to life in more than one way.

For today's projects I've chosen to work with one of the Movers & Shakers: Poppers Dies, which allowed me to tuck a sweet surprise inside.I'll start things off with a combination of two soon to be released sets... Simply You and Beautiful Butterflies.
I began by stamping the front of a Rustic White card base with butterflies in a color combo of Sweet Blush, Raspberry Fizz & Orange Zest. Then stamped "You" from the Simply You stamp set, in Smokey Shadow ink.
Incorporated the same color combo from the outside of the card onto the inside. Die cut the Movers & Shakers: Popper spiral die and attached it to the top and bottom of the inside of the card.
Randomly attached die cut and hand cut butterflies along the spiral. Die cut and stamped an additional large butterfly in Sweet Blush and then stamped again with Background Basics: Medallion (available February 15th) in Raspberry Fizz. Attached it at the end of the spiral, embellished with a button and then finished the card off with a Simply You sentiment.
My next pairing is Mover & Shaker Sentiments with Up, Up & Away.
Die cut, stamped and colored two Up, Up & Away hot air balloons and attached them to a Soft Stone card base along with a few die cut clouds. Then stamped with a Mover & Shakers sentiment.
Die cut a spiral from white cardstock and attached (looking back at my card now, I think I should have gone with a Soft Stone spiral instead). Randomly attached a bunch of clouds and a few hot air balloons.
Then finished the card off with a Movers & Shakers sentiment to coordinate with the sentiment on the front of the card.

So there you have it! Be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in-store for you today...

  1. So, so beautiful and delightfully clean & simple in true Maile style! Thank you for sharing :)
    p.s.: you can't really tell that the spiral is white versus soft stone in the picture - it looks lovely :)

  4. Maile, I kept wondering how you, the queen of clean cards, would use a die that adds business to a card. You amaze me even here. Great job! Love the way the pop-ups have such a clean finish to them. Thank you.
