Good morning! We're on to Day #2 of the Papertrey Ink April countdown and today I get to share some projects using a new mini kit I have coming your way, called Lovely Lace.
The Lovely Lace kit is filled with stamps, dies, stencils, patterned papers, and even some pretty printed vellum papers. This new kit will be available for purchase beginning at 10pm ET on April 15th from the Papertrey Ink website.
Let's get right to the projects! I will be sharing some today, but even more over the next few days.
My first card uses several elements from the new kit. I started off with a panel of Fresh Snow linen cardstock which I ran through my diecut machine with the lace border stencil from the kit and embossing mats to get this pretty embossed panel. I love that the stencils can be used to emboss as well as typical stenciling techniques! I sponged some Aqua Mist and Tropical Teal inks around the embossed edges.
I diecut the pretty lace medallion from the kit, cut it in half and adhered it to the top and bottom of the panel. I stamped some sentiments from kit stamps in the center, using Soft Stone and Smokey Shadow inks.
My next card uses one of the printed vellum panels from the kit. I started off with a Fresh Snow Linen card base and sponged some Aqua Mist ink in the center. I stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment from the kit right onto this panel, then layered the vellum lace panel over the top.
I framed the sentiment with a diecut lace medallion.
Really quick and easy to put together - it would be pretty as a wedding or anniversary card, too, and there are sentiments in the kit for both of those occasions as well.
My next card has a much brighter look. I played around with another technique using the lace border stencil from the kit. I inked the stencil using a brayer along with Orange Zest, Bright Buttercup, and Raspberry Fizz inks. Then I misted it with a bit of water and ran it through my diecut machine with the embossing mats. What a fun result!
In the center I used another stencil from the kit, the ever-all diamond lace pattern, and sponged a bit of the same inks over the area I wanted to stamp the sentiment. The sentiment is from the new Pen & Ink set, stamped in black ink. I added several diecut pre-printed vellum flowers, which were cut with the dies from the kit.
I backed one of the flowers with Raspberry Fizz cardstock just to give a bit of definition. I also added a few clear sequins for some sparkle. This kit can take on so many different looks!
My last card for today takes on a really bold look by combining the all-over black & white lace patterned paper from the kit and the new Mix & Mat: Scallops die collection. The lacy pattern in the Mix & Mat die matches the papers and stencils from the kit.
I used all three of the dies from the Mix & Mat die collection and cut them from white cardstock. Then I used just the outer scalloped die and cut a solid panel from Aqua Mist cardstock to back it with.
I topped off one of the largest flowers in the lace panel with a diecut flower from the kit. I also added a stitched oval, cut using the Noted: A1 die collection. I stamped the sentiment with black and Aqua Mist inks. A few sequins to the flower centers add a little sparkle.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'll be back with more projects tomorrow!
