Welcome to the final day of the Papertrey Ink countdown. I have just a few more cards to share with you today using my new sets....Flower Fusion #4 and one of the sets in the Fruit Fusion collection...Cherries. Before I jump in I want to thank each and every one of you for visiting my blog, leaving such sweet comments and sending the nicest e-mails. I love to hear from you and appreciate you taking the time to contact me and show me your support and excitement for each of my new designs. It means so much!!
**All of my latest sets in the Fruit Fusion collection as well as Flower Fusion #4 will be available on the Papertrey Ink website starting May 15th!**
Up first is this bright and cheery little number. Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest and Simply Chartreuse is the color combo. The cardstock strips were stamped in their matching colors using the flower images in Flower Fusion #4. I machine stitched them and adhered them to my card front.
I used Beautiful Blooms ll #2 die to create my large orange flower. I created a Simply Chartreuse felt flower using the coordinating Flower Fusion #4 die and then adhered it over the first. The leaves are from Sending You and the sentiment is one of the two included in the Flower Fusion #4 set.
FYI...I added thread around my flower by poking a hole through the center of it and then pulled my needle up from the bottom and continually wrapped it around the middle of each petal.
I stamped each square with the solid flower image in Flower Fusion #4 and then created my pattern on the front of my card. Then I machine stitched them all together.
'You are so thoughtful!' is from Flower Fusion #2. The felt butterly was made using the Love Lives Here butterfly die and Raspberry Fizz felt. The smaller one was punched out of vellum using a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.
In the first card above I die cut leaves from Sending You and this card was created using the negative piece of cardstock that was left over. I just couldn't let that piece go to waste. :) Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet and Simply Chartreuse...what's not to love about these colors together!!!!
The Pure Poppy flower was created using the Beautiful Blooms ll #1 die and Pure Poppy felt. I created another flower to top that one using Berry Sorbet cardstock and the coodinating Flower Fusion #4 die. The inside of the negative space was stamped with the leaves from Sending You and 'Love You a bunch!' is from the Fruit Fusion: Grapes set.
Next up...Fruit Fusion: Cherries! I started by creating a tag using the Tag Sale #4 die and Dotti Biscotti patterned paper. I stamped my cherry stem onto a piece of white cardstock that I punched out using one of my EK Success circle punches.
I used the cherry die for my cherries and embossed a strip of Spring Moss cardstock using Polka Dot Basics ll impression plate . 'Sweet on you' is part of the cherries set.
And lastly for today I have another cherry card using some of the new Fruitti Tutti patterned paper. My base for my cherries was created with the Fillable Frames #1 die and under that is a scalloped Pure Poppy square created with Nestabilites.
'Sweet as can be' is from Baby Button Bits. A strip of glitter and two sweet felt cherries complete this one!
Well, my friends, that wraps up this months countdown! I hope you have enjoyed this last day of projects and can't wait to see what amazing things you will create with these sets!!
Tonight is the release party...10pm EST in the Papertrey forum. I hope to chat with you there! :)
