Maile Belles Returns!


Yep! Your eyes do not deceive you. Today marks the start of my comeback! After taking last year off to enjoy my new baby boy, I am thrilled to be back for 2015 as a Papertrey Ink product designer!  And I'm starting the year off with a bang!  This year my product lineup consists of stamps, dies and pattern papers.

This February I bring you...
  • Watercolor Wonder paper pad
  • Beautiful Butterflies Layers stamp set & dies
  • Swoosh stamp set & dies
All the details on these products can be found on the Papertrey Ink blog.  But since you're here already, I have a few samples of my own...


Here's a simple card featuring a sheet from the Watercolor Wonder paper pad and a sentiment from the Swoosh stamp set.  This paper pad features a color combo of melon berry, sweet blush, harvest gold, aqua mist and ocean tides.  Do any of you recognize this pattern?  Well, this pad of paper was created using images from my previously release set Watercolor Wonder!  This sheet in particular was inspired by a hand stamped pattern I created on this card.



Swoosh is a stamp set full of wonderful script sentiments that stretch across your card front, complete with smaller companion sentiments that you can add in.  I've used the "thanks" image (along with a few rhinestones) to finish off this simple card.



Again, here is another sample of the Watercolor Wonder paper pad and the Swoosh stamp set.  This sheet features a cascading effect of painted dots.



I chose to trim by hand along the edge of "hello" to 1. create a unique border and 2. as a fun way to incorporate the companion phrase "darling".




I'll end today's samples with a look at the Beautiful Butterflies Layers stamp set.  Now, I know some of you have been waiting for a stamp set like this for a long time...  This new set is designed to be used in conjunction with my original Beautiful Butterflies set.  It includes layering images that let you add detail to the butterfly silhouettes included in the original set. 



The butterfly showcased here uses two of the layering images, these are the watercolor strokes.  Each butterfly features a different design and I'll be sharing those with you as the anniversary festivities continue. Being able to add these details will add so much to your projects! There is also a new die that will cut the bodies separately to give you more design options.

Well, that concluded my first look at the Watercolor Wonder paper padSwoosh and Beautiful Butterflies Layers stamp sets. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning February 15th.   I'd love to know what you think so far, so please feel free to share!

Now, be sure to visit the Papertrey Ink blog for all the details on these products.  Also, Danielle Flanders has even more samples to share with you today.  You won't want to miss any of it!

Thank you all endlessly for your continued support, shared excitement and kind comments.  I appreciate it all, more than you will ever know.  So glad you could stop by!  

Maile

  3. Welcome back! I'm super excited about the Beautiful Butterflies Layers. I love bringing new life to an older and much loved set. Your Swoosh sentiments are awesome as well. Are they fairly easy to line up on the dies? My eyesight isn't what it used to be and I struggle with lining thin lined images up with their dies. So glad to see you back but so happy that you were able to take that special time to spend with your sweet little boy.
