Papertrey Ink July Release Projects

The Papertrey Ink July 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!...
Wishes Come True by Lizzie Jones.  I stamped the candles in a fun color combo of hawaiian shores, limeade ice, summer sunrise and raspberry fizz.  Then attached the panel at a slight angle.
Finished the card off with a sentiment strip and a wrapping of grey twine.
Polka Dot Parade #6 by Melissa Bickford.  The tree top and leaves were stamped onto a punched limeade ice circle.
Then a few lovely embellishments to finish the card off.
Summer Hills by Nichole Heady.  I just love the simplicity of this card!
To give it a good pop of color I paper pieced the image by cutting out and assembling different layers featured in the design.  If you look at the profile you can see just how thick the layers are. 
Balloon Bash by Lizzie Jones and Scrolling Script by Nichole Heady.
With the swirls as my inspiration I drew by hand an extra length of swirly balloon line, enough to hold the balloon in place and to extend off the edge of the card.
First Place by Melissa Bickford.
I stamped and assembled a group of ribbon ends with a sentiment and stapled them into place using my tiny attacher.
Delightful Dahlia Additions by Dawn McVey.  
I just love this set, the detailed images really make these blooms shine and they are easy to work with!  I paired these pretties with the Mat Stack 7 Die Collection.

Well, that's all of them!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Teams fabulous projects as well...
