Hello there and happy Saturday! So glad it's the weekend here...time for some baseball. :-)
Just popping in to wrap up the June Papertrey Ink release. I have five more projects that I haven't shared on my blog yet, so sit back and take a peek.
First up is a card that combines a few new sets, Bigger Blooms and Live Love Life. The flowers are, of course, from Bigger Blooms. The cute chevron accent in the background is from Live Love Life.
The sentiment is also from Bigger Blooms. I used the Cover Plate: Chevron die with my embossing mats to emboss instead of cut.
Supplies not linked, but available from Papertrey Ink on June 15th at 10pm Eastern: Bigger Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies, Cover Plate: Chevron (vertical) die, Live Love Life stamp set
Up next is a cute little birthday number using Polka Dot Parade #5. I paired it with the previously released set Bitty Bird Additions.
I love all of the little elements in the Polka Dot Parade sets. This one has cute notes, the small flower I used in the background, and all of the sentiment pieces are seperate, making it easy to stamp them in multiple ink colors.

Next is a card using Live Love Life. This is going to be one of those sets that is super fun to play with. I used the chevron line image to create a unique pattern.
I found that if I stamped in various ink colors and overlapped the stamping, some neat color variations happened. Notice how I lined them up so that the lines of the next ink color fell between the lines of the previous image. Pretty fun. The sentiment and arrow are also from Live Love Life.

Next up is a card using Dawn's new Boutique Borders: Thanks set. I had my Seed Packet Frame 2 die out from my vegetable project and noticed that it makes a pretty frame when combined with the Mega Mat Stack 4 die. It also worked perfectly for stamping the pretty frame from Boutique Borders: Thanks. The flourish fits perfectly with the shape of the Mega Mat Stack 4.
I filled the frame with lots of pretty flowers from Cuttting Garden. The sentiment is of course from Boutique Borders: Thanks.

Last but not least, a fun card using the new Teacher Tickets set. I diecut the pinked edge circle using the Limitless Layers: 2 1/2" circle die, then diecut the Just the Ticket border from it. I then cut a strip of tickets from Rustic White cardstock and pieced them together.
The ticket frame stamp as well as the Way 2 Go sentiment and the A+ circle and "super" star are all from Teacher Tickets as well. The arrows are from Sketched Shapes. The patterned paper in the background pulls your eye straight to the fun focal point. It's from Carta Bella's Boardwalk collection.
