Introducing Seeds of Knowledge

Hello and welcome to day 4 of the Papertrey Ink April countdown! 

Today's group post is focused on Seeds of KnowledgePencil Blooms dies, as well as the Pint Size Wrap dies and containers!  A pretty bouquet is perfect for many occasions.  I love the fact that the flower pencil bouquets featured today can continue blooming well past any fresh cut flowers expiration date.  These little beauties could put a smile on someone's face for months.

Check out what I've got for you today and be sure to hang in there until the end, I've got a couple new sneak peeks of my new Black & White All Over pattern paper collection and Super Swoosh dies collection too...
This blooming ensemble features a color combo of harvest gold, berry sorbet, pure poppy, new leaf and true black.  Inspired by this gorgeous project here.
These blooms were die cut from the window pane pattern featured in the Black & White All Over pattern paper collection.  I added a bit of color to each flower by pressing the ink pad directly onto the die cuts, repeatedly until fully covered in color. 
Using the Moments Inked: Edged die I was able to cut by hand a number of long leaves to insert into the cup alongside the pencils. 
The cup design mimics the card design. 
Both the card and cup feature striped pattern paper from the Black & White All Over pattern paper collection.  
The leaves, flowers and sentiment are from the Seeds of Knowledge stamp set.
Lastly, a look at another pattern paper sheet also from the Black & White All Over pattern paper collection. Balloons, in outline for ready for a pop of color or to use as is.
For today's project I've colored each with Copic markers.  This is the pink and purple version.
And this one's the blue and green version.  Each one is topped off with a "congratulations" Super Swoosh die cut.

Well, that concludes today's look at Seeds of Knowledge, Pencil Blooms dies, as well as the Pint Size Wrap dies and containers. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning April 15th.  More details on these products can be found at the Papertrey Ink blog.
