Hi there creative friends! Happy Weekend! And happy PTI Release Week! Today is the 10th, which means we're kicking off five days of fun, new stamps, and inspiration leading up to the December release on the 15th! In crafty land, we are definitely already transitioning out of Christmas and on into Valentine's Day crafting! This new release is chock full of cute, sweet, funny and beautiful products sure to cheer up anyone you love. Something for everyone - kids, grownups, and the young at heart! I love this release and I am really looking forward to sharing with you from now until Thursday!
Be sure to visit the Official Papertrey Ink Blog all week for inspiration from other design team members, news, and contests! PTI really knows how to do a release up right! All of the new products will be available in the Papertrey Ink Store on Friday, December 15th at 10pm EST. Until then, we'll have fun every day looking at all the new stamps and dies (and paper!)
Today I made a cute Valentine to show you! I am featuring two new products: The Mix and Mat Hearts Dies, and the Everyday Affection Stamp set. I have a crush on YOU!
I started with an A2 card base from Classic Kraft paper. Then I layered some pretty gingham (love). I used my Big Shot to die cut out the Mix and Mat Hearts Dies from crisp white cardstock. I layered Melon Berry cardstock under the white die cut so that the hearts would be pink! I love that color pink!
Next I stamped and die cut the ice cream cone from the new Fun Lovin' Stamp Set! I layered the ice cream cone onto a kraft circle to kind of break up all the white on the card. I stamped the adorable sentiment in black onto a banner.
For the finishing touch I added a little resin heart and some sequins to the card. I thought it needed some sparkles and sprinkles!
This Mix and Mat die cut is so beautiful! I love the embossed arrows going around the inner edge. So sweet! I am thinking I want to make a shaker card using it as the top layer so the sequins would show through the heart cut outs!
Is anyone else humming this song by The Jets??? LOL. Is anyone else besides me even old enough to remember that song??!!
That's it for day one of Papertrey Ink December Release Week! Be sure to come back tomorrow for more cards - and the rest of the days too! It's good to see you. Last week I tagged along on my husband's business trip to San Francisco so I didn't do any blog posts. But I'm back! Thanks for stopping by today! XOXO
SUPPLIES FOR TODAY!
(I'll update the new products in the links when they go live on the 15th!)
