Introducing Square Print

If your counting down like I am... CHA is only a couple short days away!  If your unable to attend I hope you'll join me via Instagram (mkbelles) as I try my best to document the event with photos.  Tomorrow is the day I hit the road and make my way there!

Currently, there's another countdown going down these next few days...  I'm back this month with my newest stamp set for the January Papertrey Ink release, I'm happy to introduce to you... Square Prints.  This geometric set of patterned squares can be used in so many ways, the possibilities are truly limitless! You can stamp a series of squares, each facing in different directions, to create unique overall patterns. You can mix several patterns together or just use one or two alone.  This set features 15 unique squares.  The coordinating die makes it easy to cut out six square as once.  Square Prints will be sold for $15, beginning January 15th at Papertrey Ink.  

I've got a sample to share with you today, so let me get started...
I love a simple yet random layout!  Here's A Tip:  For me, the key to making such a design work is incorporating each color in odd numbers using a triangle formation.  I'm sure you've hear this before, but I tell ya... it really works!
I used two different squares (the solid for the background and the patterned ones for the dimension) and stamped all in a color combo of orange zest, new leaf and aqua mist.  Finished the card off with a few Studio Calico bright gems and a Framed Out #12 sentiment.


That's it from me today, but I've still got a lot more to share! So, I hope you'll join me for the remainder of the countdown!

Now, be sure to visit Nichole Heady, Besty Veldman and Danielle Flanders for new peeks. Also, Heather Nichols, Dawn McVey and Melissa Bickford have peeks to share with you of their newest sets for the month.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
