Papertrey Ink April Release Projects

The Papertrey Ink April countdown is about to come to an end and I'm here to share my final projects with you today. But, before I do, let me remind you that everything you've seen peeks of will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink beginning 10 pm EST tonight.

Now, let me get started!...
Let me begin with Boutique Borders: Father by Dawn McVey.
I grouped a few cool Studio Calico pattern papers together and topped them with a Boutique Borders: Father sentiment and frame. Embellished with a die cut notched strip (from the Sketched Shapes Die Collection) and rhinestones.
Handy Hardware by Lizzie Jones.  I stamped a fun border along the bottom edge of the card using a number of image from this set.
In a fun color combo of summer sunrise, terracotta tile, Hero Arts soft pool and Hero Arts wet cement.
Wonderful Words: Memories by Heather Nichols.  I began by stamping a row of "memories" at a slight angle.
Then finished the card off with a veneer speech bubble, pattern paper strip and sequins.
Polka Dot Parade #3 by Melissa Bickford.  This set features an adorable tiny TV images which I stamped in a colorful row.
Topped each with a set of antennas and completed with a trio of "It's Your Day!" sentiments.
7th Inning Stretch by Lizzie Jones.  This cool baseball set was perfect for making a card for my niece who is currently playing in her first year of softball.
I had a blast stamping the bats in a girly color combo and then topping them off with a personalized cap.
Happiness In Bloom by Nichole Heady.  This last card utilizes a fun technique I've been dying to try. One that requires the use of a miny water mister to create a pretty water color look.
Here How:  Simply ink up your stamps, spray stamp 2-3 times with water and them stamp.  Easy peasy!  Ain't these mini misters adorable?!... 

Well, that's all of them!
