It's group post time for the January Papertrey Ink countdown! Today the team is featuring a whole line up of products with a vintage clock theme. There is a stamp set called Hands of Time as well as coordinating dies, some clock hand dies and a set of three different small number stamps and dies called Number Time Trio which coordinate perfectly with the clock faces in Hands of Time. All of these new products will be available for purchase from the Papertrey Ink website as of 10 pm EST on January 15th, 2013.
Nichole challenged us to create both a card and a photo project (scrapbook page, album, etc.) using these new products. I decided to create a scrapbook page for my photo project. This is a photo of my son (who is my oldest child) along with my youngest daughter. They are SUCH a pair. He is so patient with her and loves to spend time with her, so this stamp set was perfect for this photo of the two of them.
I stamped the large clock face from the set as well as one of the smaller ones several times using Fine Linene and Classic Kraft inks. I diecut the large numbers from vellum using the By the Numbers die set. I just love the look of the colored vellum. To acheive that, I just rubbed my ink pad directly on the vellum. The one problem with that is the ink doesn't tend to dry very well, but I found a solution to that! I just sprayed it with a coat of clear sealer. I used Krylon's Crystal Clear. Once it's dry (about 10 minutes) the ink stays put and won't rub off. I love it! Vellum is hot right now, so this is a trick I am definitely going to use again. I also cut the clock hands from vellum which I left white and topped it off with a decorative metal brad.
I also used the clock hands as an embellishment in the bottom corner of my photo, along with a heart tag cut from vellum using the new Tremendous Tags dies (a jumbo version of the previously release Tiny Tags dies - yay!!) To create the number border strips, I used the Number Time Trio dies. These dies are wired and I left them together, diecut a strip of patterned paper and used the negative as a border.
Like I mentioned earlier, Nichole challenged us to make a card as well. I decided to create a masculine anniversary card. Those guys are hard to make cards for, aren't they? ugh! Hands of Time is a great set for masculine cards, though!
I stamped lots of different images from the set onto blocks of cardstock. In the center I placed the diecut clock hands, topped with a vintage-y brad. I think it's a perfect guy card and I would totally give this to hubby on our anniversary.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed looking at my projects as much as I enjoyed creating them. Be sure to hop around to the other DT gals to see what they've created with the new Hands of Time set and coordinating products!
