Introducing Irresistably Ikat, Watercolor Wonder and Mini Blooms

I'm back this month with my newest additions to my Stamping Simply line up for the February Papertrey Ink release.  I couldn't be more thrilled to introduce to you my three new sets... Irresistibly Ikat, Watercolor Wonder and Mini Blooms.  Today I'll be sharing a brief look at all three sets and in the following days I'll go into a bit more detail about each.  In the meantime, keep in mind that each of these sets will be available for purchase beginning February 15th at Papertrey Ink.
So let me get started...
First up, Irresistibly IkatIkat patterns can be found in all the latest fashion and decor trends.  I'm happy to bring this popular pattern into stamp form!  This card features the largest focal image from this pretty patterned set. 
I stamped this ikat medallion in a color combo of melon berry and sweet blush onto a white card base.  Then finished the card off with a sentiment (also included in Irresistably Ikat).  I must admit... I am a huge fan of this font combo, it pairs perfectly with the ikat.
Second, Watercolor Wonder.  Here's a fun set that allows you to recreate the look of artistic paint strokes, without out the mess of getting out a brush and paints.
I built a hand stamped pattern onto the white card base using a few images from Watercolor Wonder in a color combo of raspberry fizz, sweet blush and melon berry.  Fished the card of with a simple sentiment panel.  Stamped the panel with a sentiment from Mini Blooms (also shown below), scored a few lines and embellished with Studio Calico gems.
Last but not least, Mini Blooms.  A new floral set that is trendy, yet illustrated in such a way that it will stand the test of time.  For this card I've paired it with my free printabla image, found here.
The card base is covered with a sheet of soft stone pattern paper.  Over that is layered a cardstock panel, stamped with a pre-assembled floral cluster (inked in sweet blush and melon berry) and then punched using a 2" circle punch.  Over the hole is layered some American Crafts glitter tape (trimmed it into a trio of notched pieces, such a fun look!) and the printable ombre circle.

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

Each set will be available for purchase beginning February 15th at Papertrey InkNow, be sure to visit Nichole Heady, Besty Veldman and Erin Lincoln for new peeks. Also, Heather Nichols, Dawn McVey, Melissa Bickford & Lizzie Joneshave peeks to share with you of their newest sets for the month.
