Papertrey Ink December Release Projects

The Papertrey Ink December 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!...
Ribbons & Bows and Think Big Favorites #23...  To allow for it to stand out, I stamped the "LOVE" circles in black ink onto rustic white cardstock.
Using a light ink, such as sweet blush, I stamped the ribbon image to make it appear as if it was behind the sentiment.  Then for a pop of color, I stamped the tiny heart in pure poppy, cut it out and popped it up with a bit of dimensional adhesive.  Finished the card off with a strip of American Crafts pattern paper.
Quilled Elegance and Sending My Love... Starting from the bottom right corner and moving up the card (creating a look of movement) I stamped the large Quilled Elegance image in a color combo of limeade ice, Hero Arts wet cement and Archival viridian.
Then finished the card off with a sentiment that pops, with the help of some dimensional adhesive of course.
Love Potion... For a bold focal point, I grouped a few of the beakers together.  Carefully overlapping each one as I stamped. 
The overlapping allows the love potion filled beakers to sort of blend together, once stamped in Arichival viridian, limeade ice and summer sunrise.  Finished the card off with a little sentiment strip for the three to sit on.
Framed Out #11 and Sending My Love... And I leave you with my last touch of gold (for the countdown that is).  My plan was to mount the sentiment banner directly into the center of the card.  So with this in mind, I was careful to stamp the heart grouping slightly off center.  To give the focal point a bit of an unexpected look. Get what I mean?
I die cut a banner from white cardstock, trimmed off the ends and stamped the center portion with the sentiment.  Then I took the end pieces, pressed them into the gold ink pad and assembled the banner.

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!
