Summer Stamping Inspiration...
Introducing Cloche Quarters: Summer Fillers...

Introducing In the Shadows...


Good Monday morning!  Did you see the sneak peek video posted on Nichole's blog yesterday for all of the exciting new Papertrey Ink products coming your way for July?!  So much fun stuff.  I'm excited to get to start sharing some projects today.  

I have a small set being introduced today called In the Shadows.  It's a simple $5 set that consists of various sized ovals to use as grounding shadows for other images.  Of course they can be used in other ways too - backgrounds, flowers, highlighting certain words from a sentiment, etc.!  

The new In the Shadows set, along with anything else I mention as "new" in today's post will be available for purchase beginning at 10pm ET on July 15th from the Papertrey Ink website.

So I have a couple of projects for you today using In the Shadows.  This first one combines some of the shadow ovals from that set along with the potted orchids from another new set I have coming out this month -- Cloche Quarters: Summer Fillers, which you'll see more of in a few days.


I stamped three potted orchids.  One was put under a cloche, using the basic Cloche Quarter set.  I used ovals from the In the Shadows set under each of the pots.  These were stamped on some new dies coming your way  - this month's Mix & Mat set called Mix & Mat: Postal, which has a potage-stamp border, a diagonal stitched border, and a chevron insert (which I opted not to use on this project).  I matted it with some Sweet Blush cardstock using the largest stitched rectangle from the Noted: A2 set.  The sentiment was from another new set you'll be seeing more of in the coming days.


I also created a matching simple notecard using the Noted: Scalloped Square die.  I once again stamped two of the potted orchids and grounded them with shadows from the In the Shadows set.  This time I opted not to use the actual cloche.  The sentiment is from the previously released Pen & Ink set.


New make it band

I mentioned above, that the ovals from the In the Shadows set could be used in lots of other creative ways.  Here I chose to create a fun and colorful background by stamped the various ovals in lots of bright colors.


The side panel was cut using the Edgers: To the Point dies.  A few weeks ago Lizzie posted some notecards on which used the striped stencil from the Market Street kit to stencil a plaid design, which I just loved, so I tried my hand at it here.  Fun, quick, and easy!  I sponged the Aqua Mist cardstock with Hawaiian Shores ink.  


The sentiment I used here is again from the Pen & Ink set, definitely one of my favorite sentiment sets lately!!


New make it band
