Hello and welcome to day #1 of the Papertrey Ink January 2013 countdown! Today I get to help introduce two new stamp sets to you, plus I'm sneaking in a few other new goodies.
The two new sets are Heart-2-Heart #12, the last installment of the Heart-2-Heart series, and a small $5 sentiment set called Happy For You. Both of these sets, along with any other products I mention as new throughout this post will be available from purchase at 10pm EST on January 15, 2013 through the Papertrey Ink website.
So my first project uses Heart-2-Heart #12...there are three different circles included in the set, along with two leaf/stem images. Both have coordinating dies. These little circles are fun and can be used in lots of different ways. I used them here as flowers along with the stems.
I layered them over some tags which were cut with the new Tremendous Tags dies...look familiar? They are jumbo-sized versions of the popular Tiny Tags. Love! I impressed each tag with a different Impression Plate for lots of different textures. The "Keep Smiling" sentiment here is also from the Heart-2-Heart #12 set.
For my next project I used the circles and stems in a slightly different way and arranged them more like a frame around my sentiment.
The sentiment I used here is from the other set I'm introducing to you today -- Happy For You. This "thought of you.." sentiment is one of four great sentiments in this set. I love the font - it's so pretty!
My last card for today uses just the circles from Heart-2-Heart #12. I combined them with the Cover Plate: Circles die to create a colorful design.
I placed a cardstock strip behind each "row" of circles in the Cover Plate die and added a row of stamped circles which I popped up with foam. Just a fun, colorful card. I used the "keep smiling" sentiment again, this time stamped on the banner from the In Stitches die collection.
That's all for my projects today, I hope you enjoyed this little peek into what's new for Papertrey Ink for the month of January. If you'd like more peeks, here is a list of other blogs you can visit today!
