Hey there sweet bloggers!
Are you having such a blast with all the count down projects going on at Papertrey? I love it! Well if you are just joining us... then here's the run down on my brand new stamp set!
- "Embellishments" will be released on Aug. 15 on the Papertrey Ink website.
- Retailing for only $24
- What's it all about? This stamp set is loaded with large and small flourishes, border, and fleur-de-lise all with a distressed technique which adds such rich and countless possibilities. The stamp set also features several thoughtful sentiments which you will find just as fabulous as the images.
- If you want to see the earlier count down projects, check out these links: Day One, and Day Two.
>>>Papertrey cardstock and satin ribbon features the Hawaiin Shores perfect match color
>>>Check out my fuzzy orange ribbon (which by the way, has a wire in it which makes it SUPER easy to work with). This was one of the fun colors I picked up at Michael's for a buck. And speaking of Michael's, have you heard about the awesome new Michael's Crafting Cruise coming up in February? It's only been offered just a few weeks and they have already sold out half the seats available! Check it out!
>>> I hand cut the white mat and stamped up the cardstocks with different flourishes from the Embellishments website. And I love the sentiment which emphasizes the importance of the person you are giving the card to.
>>> This is a simple card, but I thought the teal rhinestones were a fabulous touch to draw in your eye. :)
Below is another fun card with a lot of sparkle. AND it features the coordinating dies for the stamp set! Hooray!!!
- The Embellishments die (pictured below) will be available on Aug. 15.
- Retailing for only $8
- This is a fast and easy way to make these flourishes come to life and really POP off the page!
>>> Once again, I love this PTI Hawaiin Shores cardstock! And I think the flourishes outlined in matching glitter almost looks like the view in a teal aquarium or looking down through the clear waters in the ocean.
>>> I think this might be one of my favorite sentiments in the set. I can think of so many people who truly deserve to hear this from me. My life is enriched by a lot of wonderful people!
>>> The buttons and ribbon do a nice job creating balance for the card even when the focal point of the die cut flourish is slightly off center.
I just love the kraft, white, and teal color combo!
It's TIME FOR A PRIZE!!!
