Papertrey July Release Part 1...
July 15, 2011
Hey there! I'm here to share a few of my remaining projects from the Papertrey July release. There was so much stuff this month! I have six more cards to share. I'll post three today and the other three sometime this weekend.
First off is one of my favorites using the new Background Basics: Vine. I stamped the simple vine from the set using VersaMark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. I then used the Leafy Vine Border die to diecut a strip. I used the left-overs from the diecut as a mask and masked off the stamped/embossed strip. I then filled in the leaves with different colors and patterns using the Bitty Background Blocks.
It reminded me of a patchwork quilt, so I filled in around it with a few more different background stips that also reminded me of stitching. I stamped the sentiment and needle from Quilter's Sampler and the "thread" for the needle is from Happy Trails.
Next up is a card using Friendship Jar Summer Fillers. It's prettier in real life, I promise. This card just didn't photograph very well. I embossed the hydrangea image with white embossing powder and then water-colored it using some of my Stampin' Up! dye inks.
I created a piece of notebook paper using the notebook lines from It's Official and included the pen and butterfly from Happy Trails. My intention was to make it look like a little writing desk with a pretty jar of flowers setting on it. Not sure I accomplished that...I think this was one of those that definitely looked better in my head. :-)
And the last card for today is a simple little number using Congrats All Ways along with the frame from the new Tag-its #6 and the graduation hat from Tag-its #4.
I used the same sentiment building idea from this post a few weeks back. I'm still having fun playing around with that concept!
