Welcome Back to day two of the fun festivities for Papertrey Ink December 2017 Release Week! Yahooooo! I hope you saw my post from yesterday, and hope you stick around for the next few days as we review all the new products coming out on the 15th! Be sure to visit the Official Papertrey Ink Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has going on this week. It is a strange thing, sometimes, to be the first person to make something from a new set. Sometimes I wonder....did I do this right? or How exactly does this die work? But most often i think.... WHAT did everyone else make!? So I love release week too! We have fun planned every day between now and the 15th. All the brand new stamps and dies (and paper) will be available to purchase in the Papertrey Ink store on December 15th at 10pm EST!
Today is my featured post, so I have three projects made from the same supplies: The Perfect Fit stamp set and dies, and the Ways to Say I Love You stamps! The Perfect Fit stamp set is an adorable heart with a puzzle piece cut out of it! The sayings are so fun and perfect. There are a jillion ideas to use with this set. More than just Valentine's Day for sure - anniversaries, missing you, and I love you....
Here are all three cards together! I'll talk a bit about each one later in my post!
This first card is clean and simple! I used the brand new Soft Stone Patterned Paper along with pretty red and bright white to create a simple greeting. The big red heart is the star of the card. I used silver glitter paper to make the puzzle piece. For the sentiment I heat embossed in white onto rich black cardstock. I had that little clip in my stash and thought it looked nice here. A few stamped hearts around the main heart, and it was done!
On my clean and simple cards I really like to tie off the top with a bit of cord. I think it looks fresh and pretty!
For this next card I used lots of colors! I created my own background paper by using the puzzle piece stamp in different colors. Then I made the main heart out of Raspberry Fizz cardstock. A little vellum for the small sentiment looks nice across the bottom, and lets the colors show through. The die cut words are new too this month!
It's been a while since I made a folding card! This one is a Z fold and makes the card fun and interactive. I used traditional Valentine colors of red, white and black to make a really graphic note. The card opens up and there is another sentiment inside. Cute!
I attached the puzzle piece with a foam square piece. The big heart stamp/die cut is mounted over the Z fold...
Thank you for stopping by! That's it for day two of Papertrey Ink December 2017 Release Week!!! See you tomorrow! Everything new will be available on the 15th at 10pm EST. Visit the Official Papertrey Ink Blog for more card ideas all week! XOXO
