Papertrey Ink May Release Projects

The Papertrey Ink May 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!...
First up, Flipping Out by Melissa Bickford.  I began with a Soft Stone card base and panel then covered it with white die cut chevron stripes (using the Chevron Stripe Borders Die Collection) 
Then stamped a fun focal point using the flip flops and a sentiment.  Finished the card off with a bow.
Next, Heart-2-Heart #4 also by Melissa Bickford.  I stamped a happy telephone pattern in a color combo of Sweet Blush, Aqua Mist and Orange Zest.
Embellished the side of the card with a stripy impression (using the Simple Strips Impression Plate) and an Orange Zest button. 
Last but not least, Framed Out #4 by Heather Nichols.  I combined it with Happy Hydrangea.
Then die cut and stamped the sentiment frame, colored the outer edge, punched tiny holes on either side and then tied it to the card using 1/8" silk ribbon.

Well, that's all of them!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Teams fabulous projects as well...
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Hydrangea Day Five

Hello you guys! I'm back today with a final peek at my new set... Happy Hydrangea before it's available for purchase tomorrow through Papertrey Ink. I've got a couple projects to share with you, so let me get right to it...
First up, the Happy Hydrangea stem. I began this card by assembling Rustic White die cut chevrons (from the Chevron Stripe Borders Die Collection) onto a Rustic White cardstock block.
I then die cut and stamped the hydrangea blossom, in a color combo of Spring Moss, Winter Wisteria and Plum Pudding.  Attached it over the chevrons, stamped the Happy Hydrangea sentiment and embellish it with a Plum Pudding button.
Next up, a hand stamped hydrangea pattern paper in a color combo of Winter Wisteria, Spring Rain, Sweet Blush and Hibiscus Burst.  Such a pretty color combo.  The pattern was stamped using both the small and large blossoms and a few of the itty bitty single flower images stamped in between.
Die cut and stamped an additional Winter Wisteria blossom and attached it the card base with dimensional adhesive.  Then hand cut a few leaves and single flowers and attached them to the blossom as well.  Finished the card off with a sentiment.

Well, that concludes day five of the countdown. I truly hope that you have enjoyed and were inspired by all that I have shared the past few days. Just remember... this set is available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning May 15th, for $24. In the mean time, if you do happen to add this set to your collection... I'd love to see what you come up with, so please feel free to share!

Now, be sure to visit Nichole Heady for more peeks. Also, Heather Nichols & Melissa Bickford have peeks to share with you of their newest sets for the month.
