Congratulations on Your New Baby Girl

Hey there! I'm back today for the final day of the December Papertrey Ink countdown. Everything you've seen peeks of will be available tomorrow! 

And of course I bring you one more sample of Swan'sational, one of my new design for this month.
This set is perfect for baby cards. I used twin facing swans, placed them next to one another, and then nestle a sweet little baby just below the pair. The parents were made using the swan die, and orange marker (for the beak) and the small black accent stamp.
If you need a card to celebrate a new baby girl, use a pink ribbon.  If it's for a newborn boy, use a blue ribbon. 

Well, that finishes up this months release for me. Just remember... all that you've seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning December 15th.

With Love Card Duo

Hi folks! Welcome to day four of the December Papertrey Ink countdown.
Today I've got another look at Splits: With Love for ya. 
I've thought a little out of the box when it came to putting these cards together. 
Here's the frame stamped in a not so frame way. Does that even make sense?! Anyways, I've used only a portion of the stamp along the edge of a white cardstock panel.  For reference, you can see the frame image in its original formation on this sample here
I inked the frame stamp in sweet blush, pure poppy, and raspberry fizz. Then carefully stamped only the blooms along the edge. Stamped the sentiment near the corner and finished the card off with a few clear rhinestones. 
Included in this stamp set are a few extra images. 
This one-layer card was stamped using the tiny triangle trio stamp, a simple image that can be stamped repeatedly to create a very unique pattern. Such as the one here, placed around the sentiment. 

That's it from me today! Just remember... the Splits: With Love stamp set and its coordinating dies will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning December 15th

Swan Birthday Wishes

Hello and welcome to day three of the December Papertrey Ink countdown!   

I'm back today with another sample using the new Swan'sational. Here I've created a swan scene using only two images from this set. 
The grouping of swans were stamped in soft stone and then a row of cattails were stamped along the bottom edge in simply chartreuse. The sentiment was inked and stamped in scarlet jewel to complete this simple one-layer wonder card. 

Well, there's a quick look at Swan'sational. Just remember... Just remember... everything showcased today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning December 15th

Introducing Splits: With Love

Hi there! Welcome to day two of the December Papertrey Ink countdown.

For this months release I bring you a couple new additions to my Stamping Simply lineup.  Today I have a peek at second one... Splits: With Love. Take a look...
These scribbled florals can be colored in and even accented with the included leaves. Tuck the "With Love" sentiment into the frame, mix and match with other Splits sets, or use a sentiment from another set for more options.
For this one-layer wonder I inked up this sweet frame in three colors... summer sunrise, scarlet jewel, and plum pudding. The leaves were added using the color simply chartreuse. A small silky bow is the perfect touch to give this simple card a little something extra, I easily formed the bow and attached it with a touch of adhesive. 

Well, there's a quick look from me at the latest from my Stamping Simply lineup. Just remember... everything showcased today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning December 15th

Introducing Swan'sational

Hi there! Welcome to day one of the December Papertrey Ink countdown.

For this months release I bring you a couple new additions to my Stamping Simply lineup.  Today I have a peek at one of them... Swan'sational. Take a look...
I am just loving how this set turned out. These swans and all the bits and pieces to go along with them are so much fun to play with.  
One of those bits and pieces I spoke of is this water ripple stamp. Use it alone just under your elegant bird, or stamp a pretty pattern like the one here. I used the colors limeade ice, enchanted evening, and hawaiian shores. I also added a touch to black to the base of these dark grey swans, using the rock and roll technique with smokey shadow and true black inks. 

Well, there's a quick look from me at the latest from my Stamping Simply lineup. Just remember... everything showcased today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning December 15th

Merry & Bright

Hi folks! Welcome to day four of the November Papertrey Ink countdown.
Today, I've put a holiday twist on this months Splits: Happy Birthday stamp set. I've combined it with last months Quick Notes: Holiday stamp set and die.
Both sides of the Splits frame were stamped end to end to create a single border using gold ink.  I think it's kind of neat how it turned out. What do you think?!

All You Need I Love

Hi! Welcome to day three of the November Papertrey Ink countdown.
This simple little number features this months Splits: Happy Birthday frame, but I used only one half. Both halves of this frame are differnet designs, giving you a differnet look when using one of either sides. 
I carefully inked the image with four different inks... Lavender Moon, Hibiscus Burst, Aqua Mist, and Limeade Ice. Then finished the card off with a sentiment from the Super Succulents stamp set and black rhinestones. 

Well, there's another quick look at my new Stamping Simply line up for this month. Just remember... this stamp set and its coordinating die will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning November 15th

Splits: Happy Birthday Day 2

Hello and welcome to day two of the November Papertrey Ink countdown!   
Today I'm please to share with you another sample using this months Splits: Happy Birthday stamp set. This time around I'm letting one of the extra images from this stamp set take center stage. 
This little triangular striped stamp is so much fun to work with!  It has so much potential!  Here I've chosen to freehand a hand stamped background pattern using black ink allover and gold ink for a few accent pieces.  This pattern really shines beautifully in real life and unfortunately I can't capture all of that with a camera. 

Well, there's a quick look at the Splits: Happy Birthday. I'll be back tomorrow with more! Check out yesterdays card here. Just remember... this stamp set and it's coordinating die will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning November 15th

Wishing You A Merry Christmas

Hi folks! Welcome to day four of the September Papertrey Ink countdown.
Today I've got a combined effort and have used both Splits: Merry & Bright and Holiday Swoosh on this single card.

Introducing Splits: Merry & Bright

Hello and welcome to day two of the September Papertrey Ink countdown!   
Today's focus is on the soon to be released Splits: Merry & Bright. This month's take in the Splits series features a simple snowflake border, can you just imagine how beautiful it will be heat embossed! Add the coordinating sentiment included, or play around with mixing and matching other winter/holiday sentiments with them!
Onto the white card base I stamped the snowflake Splits frame, but before stamping I inked it up in Aqua Mist first and then rolled the edges in gold ink. The shine from the edges of the snowflake coordinate beautifully with the flecks of gold in the twine.

Well, there's a quick look at the Splits: Merry & Bright. I'll be back tomorrow with more! Just remember... this stamp set and it's coordinating die will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning September 15th

For this months release I bring you a couple new addition to my Stamping Simply lineup.  Today I have a peek at the new Holiday Swoosh stamp set, here's a quick look...
Originally brought to you in the Swoosh stamp set, these long script sentiments are now available for the holidays! Use these as borders, or offset them on your card cover so you are just utilizing one of the "tails". There are so many options!
Here I've paired it with the previously released Treetops Glisten stamp set. Stamped a little forest, embellished the treetops with gold ornaments, and then topped it all off with the "merry & bright" swoosh.

Hellos and Wedding Wishes

Hey there! I'm back today for the final day of the August Papertrey Ink countdown. Everything you've seen peeks of will be available tomorrow! 

And of course I bring you a couple more sample of my new designs for this month.
Here I've put to used an extra die cut Splits: Giving Thanks frame that I had laying around.
It was stamped in smokey shadow and then I used my color pencils to add a bit of color to the details of the frame. I stamped the "hello" (from the Tropics stamp set) in a contrasting color (Scarlet Jewel) and then mounted it onto the card base at an angle. 
This one-layer number focuses on one of the sentiments from the Fancy Foliage stamp set.  
The sentiment has built in floral embellishments already placed on either side. So this card front was stamped only once (super easy!) and then touched up with color pencils.  

Well, that finishes up this months release for me. Just remember... all that you've seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning August 15th.

Shaped Sayings: Halloween

Hi folks! Welcome to day four of the August Papertrey Ink countdown.
Today's feature is Shaped Sayings: Halloween. The Shaped Saying series has always been full of style, but this particular one includes some fun accessories that bring it to a whole new level! By pairing up the sentiment with a crescent moon, stars and bats, you can do a lot of fun layering and dimension! Be sure to visit Nichole Heady's blog for a detail look at these dies.
Here's a good look at the crescent moon and bats layered around the sentiment.
The moon was die cut from luxe silver cardstock, the "Trick or Treat" was cut from Simply Chartreuse, and the bats were cut from Plum Pudding. Between the fun layers I squeezed in a few black rhinestones.  Everything was mounted onto a Smokey Shadow cardbase. 
Shaped Sayings: Halloween pairs perfectly with the Spider Web Trio die set too!
Here I've die cut the spider webs from white cardstock and attached them with a glue dot placed directly in the center. I popped the "Trick or Treat" was attached with a bit of dimensional adhesive and then I finished things off with a bit more black rhinestones. 

Well, there's a quick look at the Shaped Sayings: Halloween. Just remember... this die set will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning August 15th

Splits: Giving Thanks

Hi! Welcome to day three of the August Papertrey Ink countdown.
Today I bring you another look at the Splits: Giving Thanks stamp set. The is the 7th set in the Splits collection.
I am loving the movement that the swirls of this frame create. Here I've contrasted that with a few solid stripes behind the frame die cut, in a color combo of Scarlet Jewel, Smokey Shadow, and Simply Chartreuse.
I switched out the coordinating sentiment for a "hello" from the Tropics stamp set.
The focus for these two next cards is on using this set in ways other than its original "splits" frame form.
Here I've used both the bottom and top parts and stamped them along the top edge.  It adds such movement! Color combo here... Smokey Shadow, Autumn Rose, and Simply Chartrues.
Also included in the Splits: Giving Thanks stamp set are lots of little leaves and acorns.  These can be used to accent the swirls, embellish the sentiment or on their own. Lots of mixing and matching can happen here!
Here I've taken just one of the leaves and stamped a sort of border on either side of the sentiment. I have a feeling this little figure would make a wonderful bit of hand stamped pattern paper too!

Well, there's a quick look at the Splits: Giving Thanks. Just remember... this stamp set and its coordinating die will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning August 15th
