Welcome to day two of this months Papertrey Ink countdown. I loved reading all your comments yesterday about Sweet Baby and Flower Fusion #5. I showed you just a little peek of those two sets but there is still lots to see. Plus, I have another set to introduce you to today....
Bundle of Love
- featuring 12 images - a stork, a baby in a cloth, 5 sentiments, 2 hearts and 3 patterned cloth pieces
- will retail for $15
- will be available starting June 15th on the Papertrey Ink website
Up first is a sweet baby girl card featuring the baby bundle in the set. I love how this little image can be used with the stork or all by itself. The colors I used for this...Hibiscus & Summer Sunrise along with Distressed Dots patterned paper. I stamped the baby bundle onto a circle of Vintage Cream cardstock. There are 3 different patterned images for the front of the bundle. For this card I used the flower print. I stamped that in Summer Sunrise onto a piece of cream cardstock and then cut it out. This bundle is so super simple to trim...just a few quick snips and that's it. I attached it to the front of my baby using foam adhesive. I used Copics to color in the other parts of the baby and cloth. I die cut a scalloped square Nestability to adhere my circle to.
The sentiment 'Bundle of LOVE' was stamped in Dark Chocolate ink. There are two hearts in the set. I used the larger of the two to stamp the heart in LOVE. I added a little glitter to that as well as the baby's cloth.
Next up is another sweet animal for you that is part of the Sweet Baby stamp set. An elephant...love this little guy! :) I started by die cutting 3....1 each of Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist and Melon Berry.
I then stamped the polka dot elephant image onto each die in it's coordinating colors. One thing I've found that may help you if this set ends up in your cart on release night....when stamping the dotted image into the die I line up the curved part between the legs. If I focus on that part the rest tends to fall exactly where it needs to be. This goes for all the animals in the set.
Kraft cardstock was my base for this card. I used my pinking shears to trim the sides of my white cardstock and then adhered the elephants using foam adhesive. 'Congratulations on your special delivery!' is from the Bundle of Love set.
And lastly for today another peek of Flower Fusion #5. I ran the coordinating flower die through my Cuttlebug with Berry Sorbet, Scarlet Jewel and Hibiscus cardstock.
I then stamped one of the flower images in the set onto each one. Before we go any further I wanted to mention a couple of things about these Flower Fusion stamp sets or any flower stamp set for that matter. Because each one is very unique and sometimes not so simple to line up the very first thing I do before stamping with them is THIS. Check out Nichole's video about lining them up. It will save you a ton of time and frustration when it comes time to stamp with them! You will be so glad you did it! :)
I created these three cards using a few of the flowers.
I used more of the Distressed Dots patterned paper for each of them. On this first one I added a Berry Sorbet flower and a scallop border - created with Papertrey's medium scalloped border die. 'Thank you' is from Flower Fusion #4. For the centers of each of the flowers I stamped Background Basics: Gingham onto Kraft cardstock and then punched them out with a 1/2" circle punch.
Hibiscus for this one. 'You're the best' is from Flower Fusion #5.
Scarlet Jewel for this one. 'It's the little things you do that mean so much! is from Flower Fusion #5!!
I hope you have enjoyed todays post! Still lots to see from....
Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you all tomorrow!
