Introducing Love You to Pieces

Welcome to the final day of the Papertrey Ink December countdown. 

Today's post is all about the amazing Love You to Pieces Collection, created by BetsyThis feature is absolutely one your going to fall for.  I have, and so has my son!  He insists that we create these coaster card valentines for his friends and family.  I'm happy to oblige.  But first, I have an upcoming birthday to attend to. My youngest will be turning one very soon and we plan to have a party for him after the busyness of the Christmas season is over.  Can you guess what the theme will be?  Yep.  You guessed it... Airplanes! How perfectly timed is the release of this set?!

So, let me get started...
Here's what I have in mind.  The invite, thank you card and favor.
A quick and simple invite that can easily be mass produced.  I kind of like it a lot.  
To save even more time I attached both the airplane and the heart trail onto the same acrylic block and then carefully inked up each before stamping. 
Here's a little card to say thanks for coming.  Here's a note... This design and sentiment also works perfectly for birthday cards too.  I plan to include the airplane coaster card inside the thank you card as a sort of favor.  It fits nicely inside.
I played around with the prop for this simple layout.  A little generation stamping to play a trick on ones eye, and make the prop appear to spin. Kinda fun!  Here's how...  Ink your stamp.  Stamp once, rotate, stamp twice, rotate, and stamp a third time.  All without reinking.

Well, that's all I've got for you today. Just remember... everything you've seen peek of today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning December 15th

Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...
