Hey hey hey! It's day three of the awesome Papertrey Ink January new Release previews! Welcome back! We're getting closer to release day! Everything new will be available for purchase on Monday the 15th at 10pm EST! Do you have a favorite thing so far? There's sooooo much good stuff! Thanks for hanging out with me this week while we reveal all the new products for you. I love being able to finally share these stamps and dies with all of you. It's hard to keep a secret! Be sure to visit the PTI Blog to see what the rest of the design team is sharing this week.
Today my featured post is all about the brand new collection of stamps and dies called Lucky Scratch! Fun mix and match stamps and dies that make announcements, coupons, tickets and all kinds of fun stuff. Really creative and clever. I especially love the new "Lucky" word die and I know I'll be using that one a lot. I have three cards to share with you today, all made with the same collection. You'll see how versatile it is!
First up is a St. Patrick's Day card! I looooove green! It was really fun to create this greeting. Only green and white, and one little pop of yellow! I made my own shamrock accent by combining three heart dies together and putting an enamel dot in the center. Easy peasy! I used green ink and a small sponge dauber to create ombre die cuts for the background. The Lucky Scratch stamps and dies are used for the sentiment.
Here's a close up of the shamrock! So pretty in polka dots! Also, you can see up close the ombre die cuts. I really like this look. I forget to do it more often. Simply use a small sponge and your ink pad to gently place the ink where you want it.
Next up is a baby announcement! It's a Girl! I used the new Lucky Scratch stamps and dies along with another new stamp set (Warm Regards) to create a pretty pink ticket card. I used the large ticket shaped die to create my card! I love doing this with large dies - just place the edge of the die over the top of a folded piece of paper and run it through your die cutting machine. Makes it unique and special.
Those little blossoms are perfect to announce a baby girl!
Finally, a Save-the-Date card! The new Lucky Scratch Wedding set has numbers included that allow you to fully customize your cards with your special date. I used gold glitter paper and a pretty floral (Especially You) stamp to make an elegant wedding appropriate card.
Soft watercoloring with a water brush and ink pads make this soft and dreamy!
Okay we're half way done now! Only two more days of release fun and then it will be time for Release Day! Thank you again for coming by and for your support! Have a great day! XOXO See you soon! All of the new items will be live for shopping on Monday the 15th at 10pm EST!
