Hello everyone! Today is my second of four posts this week introducing the brand new Papertrey Ink April 2017 stamp release! WAHOOOO! Today I am sharing two cards I made with new stamps and dies from the collection. CLICK HERE to see everything new! I literally have been sitting on these cards for a couple of weeks and it's so fun to share them with you now. One card is made using the latest edition to the Psalms collection and one card was made with a super cool and hip set of circled symbols. Thanks for joining me again today!
First up is a floral, natural card made with the Year of Psalms April stamp as the main focal point. Such a beautiful verse in wonderful fonts! I featured the stamp using the new Mix and Mat Scallops Die and then accented the main piece using flowers and leaves from the Gran's Garden stamp set! Supply links at the bottom of my post.
I started with an A2 card base made from Classic Kraft Cardstock. I die cut the scalloped mat from crisp white paper and then stamped the verse in rich black ink. It fits perfectly! Since the words in the sentiment are not all straight across I used the PSALM word at the very bottom of the stamp to line up everything and get a straight image.
After I stamped the verse, I stamped and die cut several flowers and leaves from the Gran's Garden Stamp Set. You can see the leaves are two toned... I did this by inking the same stamp in two colors before stamping onto the paper. I love this effect and use it quite often. The matching dies make it a dream to cut out and make your project look crisp and finished.
I attached the flowers and the leaves to the card using foam tape. I added glittery enamel dots to the centers of the flowers for another pop of color.
Next up is a bright and cheerful card with a rainbow color palette, stamped with the new Circled Symbols stamp set! LOVE. Gosh, this is so hip and on trend. I looooove it. There are loads of symbols that work together to spell out sayings! You can create your own fun puzzles. Like Deer Friend or Mr and Mrs. I chose to use lots of the symbols and splash them across the page in a random pattern with rainbow colors!
After I stamped the main circles in color, I went back with the outline circles and stamped them in rich black. Lastly I added sprinkles of small stars and hearts.
I always love a good typewriter font! This is perfect and I'll use this sentiment a lot I know! I added some rhinestones to finish off the card and mounted it onto a Pure Poppy card base for another pop of red.
Okay - that's it for today! I have TWO more days of projects from the new Papertrey Ink release! I hope to see you tomorrow friends! Be sure to click over to the Official Papertrey Ink Blog for more inspiration today. XOXO
