Introducing Life is What You Bake It and Confetti Sentiments...

We've made it to the last day of the Papertrey Ink January countdown and we have just a few more new products to share with you!

Today the team is featuring a couple of my new sets - one has a cute baking theme and it's called Life is What You Bake It.  The other is a set that kind of spun off of the baking set, called Confetti Sentiments and it has some cute sentiments done in a scattering of confetti...or flour to go with the baking theme.  

My first card uses the Confetti Sentiments, which fit nicely inside the solid portion of the new Mix & Mat: Confetti die.  Here I stamped the "Celebrate" sentiment using Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, and Orange Zest inks.

To add some color to the open dots on the Mix & Mat die, I cut one from a scrap of printer paper and laid it over my card base.  I used markers to color in all of the dots.  Doing this with a scrap of lighter weight paper makes it easier to fully color the holes, plus you can be messy and not worry about getting the marker all over your finished diecut panel.  Another fun thing you can do with the Confetti Sentiments is add a fun texture around the edges.  Here I inked up the same "celebrate" sentiment, just the edges without the word, and stamped it all the way around the edges of my card, working from Raspberry Fizz to Summer Sunrise, and finally to Orange Zest to get a gradient effect.

 My next card uses some of the bits and pieces from the Life is What You Bake it set, combined with a few other elements from previously released sets.  Papertrey has released quite a few things with a baking theme, so there is lots of fun mix and match possibilities.  Here I used the rolling pin from Lizzie's Too Hot to Handle set, and the cake from Lexi's new Fiesta Flag Birthday set.

I used the "happy birthday" from the Confetti Sentiments and heat embossed it with white powder to look like flour.  You've probably seen those cool photos where they write messages in the flour...I thought it would be to imitate that with this set.  I stamped confetti around the edges and also on my diecut Big Basics: Wish Big sentiment using the same technique I used on the card above.

 My next card uses the Life is What You Bake it for a thank you card with a chalkboard look -- I still love that effect.  I started by diecutting the new Mix & Mat: Confetti from black cardstock, using just the outer edge and stitched border.   I stamped the sentiment from the Bake It set, along with the steam image from the previously released What the Doodle: Teacup, and heat embossed both with white powder.

Then I took a white pencil and added some free-hand details around the sentiment and the scallops of the diecut.  I added the mixer, bowl, and spoon to the panel, then backed it with some Bitty Big Sweet Blush plaid paper.

 My last card is a colorful Get Well.  I did a fun color-blocking technique using some background stamps.  I arranged elements from the Bake It set along with the mitt from the Too Hot to Handle set, then penciled out some blocks around the items.  I used sticky notes to mask off the areas while I stamped them with the Background Basics: Super Gingham and Bitty Background Blocks (sorry, I think this set is retired, but I still love it!).

Along the bottom, I stamped a stitched border using the Textile Impressions set, then stamped the "get well" from the Bake It set onto the rolling pin from the Too Hot to Handle set and a diecut oval from the Jar Labels 2 die set.
