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!...
Let me begin with Red, White & Blue by Heather Nichols.
I stamped a sky full of firecrackers and blinged them up with a few blue sequins.  Finished the card off with a fitting sentiment.
This next card was created using a fun combo of new items. Wonderful Words: Baby (plus matching "baby" die) by Heather Nichols.
With the teddy bear image from Polka Dot Parade #4 by Melissa Bickford.
Yet another use for the adorable Polka Dot Parade #4 by Melissa Bickford.
I carefully stamped "BABY" horizontally and vertically (using the masking technique).  Then filled a few spaces with pink bows.
And last, but not least, is Boutique Borders: Baby by Dawn McVey.
I stamped the frame three times in light colored ink, balanced it out with a sentiment (from Side By Side Sentiments) and finished it off with a Studio Calico wood veneer heart.

Well, that's all of them!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Teams fabulous projects as well...

Ruby Rose

Welcome to the final day of the Papertrey Ink May countdown and the second design team group post day. Today's group post is all about the fun new floral set Ruby Rose. These gorgeous and large florals are such fun to stamp and layer!  I love the tiny details featured in each piece.  Details like these take a simple card and give it a little something extra.  Check it out for yourself...
First things first... the inspiration piece, found here.
This first card uses the flowers as a focal point, I arranged and trimmed some of the edges to create a floral corner.  For balance, I stamped one of the sentiments into the opposite corner.
The colors used were inspired by the cake photo above... limeade ice, lavender moon, plum pudding, winter wisteria and melon berry.
My next card uses elements from this set as background builders.  Using the same colors from the card above, I stamped an ombre colored pattern to mimic the look of the inspiration cake.
Then finished the card off with a Side By Side Sentiment and a ribbon bow (stapled into place using my Tiny Attacher).

Well, that's all I've got for you today. Just remember... Ruby Rose, the coordinating die collection and Side By Side Sentiment will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning May 15th

Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...
Thanks so much for stopping by!
