It's countdown Day #3 for the January Papertrey Ink release! We have a fun new product collection to show you today, designed by Lizzie. It's called Lucky Scratch and if you have a things for interactive cards, this is right up your alley!
The Lucky Scratch collection consists of a die collection along with 5 different mini $5 stamp sets, each filled with sentiments geared towards a different occasion. The main Lucky Scratch set has some basics, and then you can choose from the other four themes, which are Baby, Wedding, Love, and a fun Prize Pack set.
All of these new products will be available for purchase beginning at 10pm ET from the Papertrey Ink website.
Let's get on with the projects! My first one would make an adorable valentine. I used the Lucky Scratch die set, along with some sentiments from the Lucky Scratch: Love set.
There is going to be some diecuttable scratch-off material offered in the Papertrey shop, but I did not get mine in time, so I had to get a little creative. (*edited to add - there was issues with the supplier, so the scratch off paper will not be here in time for the release, but Papertrey intends to carry it in the store as soon as it arrives!) So you know how that goes...sometimes necessity is the mother of invention, right? I discovered a fun way to make my own. I used a sheet of Clear Cardstock and spray painted it with some gold spray paint I had on hand. Once dry, it sticks nicely, but scratches off easily enough with a coin. I used my Xyron machine to add a coating of adhesive to the backside of the clear cardstock so it would adhere nicely over my sentiment, without any ugly glue blobs once the paint was scratched off. It worked great!
Here's a shot of the paint scratched off. Underneath is a sentiment stamped with the Lucky Scratch: Love. I also stamped a sunburst around the sentiment using the Shine stamp set. The hearts were done with the You Have My Heart set which was released last month.

My next project uses the Lucky Scratch: Wedding set to create a Save the Date card. I started by diecutting the large Lucky Scratch ticket from watercolor paper. I also used the dotted border die, then watercolored inside of the border. I diecut the "lucky" from watercolor paper as well and added some color to the bottom portion of the word. I stamped some small flowers and leaves using Brushed Blooms.
The "save our date" banner is included in the Lucky Scratch: Wedding set, and it coordinates with the banner from the Lucky Scratch die set (there's a sentiment banner in each of the $5 mini sets - Lizzie did such a great job designing this collection!) I made the scratch off circle using the same clear cardstock/gold spray paint method I described above. Underneath I stamped a date using the numbers from the Wedding set (my nephew's actually getting married this day...I just got their save the date card, so I have that day on the brain!).
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into the new Lucky Scratch collection...I feel like I've just barely scratched the surface (ahhhh...grooooaaan) of what you can do with this fun new collection. :-)
