Papertrey Ink January Release Projects

The Papertrey Ink January 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, Heart-2-Heart.  To start, I attached a strip of American Crafts glitter tape to the bottom of the card base.  Loving this stuff!  Such an easy and fast way to add a touch of glitter without the mess.
I then die cut the adorable stems from limeade ice cardstock, staggered them along the bottom edge and trimmed off the access.  Here's A Tip:  Keep in mind the placement of the flowers on top, it looks super cool when they are sort of randomly placed verses all in a uniform row.  it's a bit unexpected that way.  Stamped the flower tops and finished the card off with a few pretty sequins to match.
Framed Out #12 includes my favorite frame image of the entire series!
Using the frame, I stamped a fun angled edge in a color combo of raspberry fizz, ocean tides and smokey shadow.  Then embellished with a thin strip of glitter tape and a dark pink sequin.
Last but not least... Everyday Photo Finishers.  I pulled out my a Fancy Folk Art for this one and stamped the main outline image in melon berry ink.
I then impressed one of the Photo Finishers Stripes Dies across the card front, it's truly a nice and subtle effect.  Then stamped the sentiment within the impression.  Finished the card off with a few peachy sequins.

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!


P.S. You have probably noticed my new found love with the sequin.  Ever since my sequin order came in I've been hooked!  Check them out here, I just love the color selection!

Keep Smiling! Card

  1. I love these projects Maile. I love the green glitter on the bottom of the first card. It's such a great "grounding" for the flowers. And I love the sequins on the flowers. Simply beautiful! The 2nd card is SO SO SO neat! I LOVE the colors...they are so classy and I love that strip of black glitter. The 3rd card is simply lovely! Such pretty soft colors! Love the black sentiment. And by the way, thanks for posting photos from CHA. I loved seeing the photos you posted! Maybe someday I'll be able to go. :) Have a great day Maile! You are so talented!

  2. I love the idea of embellishing with sequins. i don't think I have seen that before and still a lot of bang but not a lot of bulk!

  3. Whaaaa, so pretty, Maile - absolutely :)

  4. Wow! Such a cool H2H card! Like the creative flowers. The way you used the photo frame to design the second card is cool. Like the folk folkart flower card, as well. :)

  5. Your projects are awesome as always, Maile! Love the embossing you did on the last card! It was so great to meet you at CHA! :)
