Hi everyone! Wow, happy Friday! It's been a super fast week around here! I hope you've had a wonderful week. I can feel the Christmas and holiday frenzy starting as I'm out running around doing errands, and I've already been blasted with Christmas music! The new Winter Starbucks drinks are here (I love the Spiced Flat White) I'm still adjusting to the time change! I am loving the cozy nights inside bundled up with blankets and fuzzy slippers. Not too much planned for our weekend, how about you?
We are changing things up a little bit with the Papertrey Ink new release and I think you'll like it! All of the November products will be on sale on Wednesday the 15th at 10pm EST. So, every day until then, the design team will be sharing projects with you to get you excited and inspired about the new items. I'm so happy to share with you today. I have two cards made with a bunch of new items! Let's take a look!
The FIVE new products I'm featuring today are: Little Lift Me Ups, Background Basics: Birch, Mix & Mat Plaid, Year of Psalms November and Flower Power! YAY!
First up is a card made with the newest Year of Psalms stamp set. I chose to make this a more masculine card with lots of wood textures and warm earthly colors. Unfortunately we need to make sympathy cards from time to time and I think this would fit the bill nicely for that occasion. I used one of my favorite older sets (Meadow Greens) to stamp the ferns onto the center panel.
The new Mix & Mat dies feature a gorgeous tree/branch outline. I used the new Birch Background stamp to stamp the birch tree pattern onto the trees. I love how that came out! I cut the center panel out of cream cardstock, stamped it, and then edged in Distress Inks.
The font for this set is so beautiful. I love fonts!
Here's a close up of the layers and the pretty dies!
Next up is a card using the cheerful new set called Little Lift Me Ups! It's a set of inspirational sentiments in pretty fonts to use for your cards. I am going to use this one a lot! I used the Birch Background stamp again (love) to make the bottom part of the card design. The flowers were made using the new Flower Power stamps and dies. I used Autumn colors again since it's November and I love that color palette.
The sentiment is one stamp, the sun rays and the heart are different stamps - I love that you can combine and mix and match as you want. I popped some bright blue in there with the bow and added a pretty enamel dot as a finishing touch.
