Papertrey Ink July Release Wrap up and Make It Market: Garden Gate Sneak Peek...

We've made it to the end of another Papertrey Ink countdown!  There were so many great projects by the team again this month.  All of the new products will go up in the Papertrey Ink store tonight at 10pm Eastern.  

I have a few more to share with you today, but before I do, I have some exciting news.  There's a full Make It Market kit coming your way on August 1st...


There is something so lovely and a bit mysterious about a garden gate - what beauty and lushness lies behind it?  The new Make It Market Garden Gate kit evokes that same wonderful feeling.  With lush, old time garden favorites for you to tuck around the pretty garden gate, intertwine in the lattice border, or tuck inside a gatefold card, this kit is filled with so many creative possibilities.  I thing there are some great basics in this kit that will be perfect for any floral lover and will work wonderfully with other florals you might already have in your collection.  The Make It Market: Garden Gate kit will be available for purchase on August 1st from Papertrey Ink.  I'll be back here on July 31st for the full reveal, lots of projects, and more.  

Now that I got that off my chest, let's wrap up July's projects... :-)

First up is a card using Dawn's new Just a Number set.  I stamped and heat embossed the Background Basics: Galaxy stars on some watercolor paper, then did some watercoloring over them with Tropical Teal, Enchanted Evening, and Orange Zest inks.  I diecut the main label from the new Just a Number set and stamped it with the "birthday" sentiment.  I diecut the "happy", sponged it with Summer Sunrise and Orange Zest inks, then layered it over the top


I embossed some stars on the lower circular portion of the label, then sponged it with Tropical Teal ink.  Then I added the diecut stars and swirls, which were cut using the Paper Clippings: Congratulations die.

 Next is a soft, pretty card that uses the new Splits: Best Wishes and the new Inspired: Prayer set.  I think this is my favorite Splits set yet.  I stamped the leafy label and heat embossed it with white powder.  I watercolored it with Limeade Ice, Aqua Mist, and Berry Sorbet reinkers.  Then I cut it apart so I could widen the space a little more and use a different sentiment than the one included in the Splits set. 


The sentiment is done using the new Inspired: Prayer stamps and die.  I decided it needed a little something in the corners, so I took the larger single berry/leaf image from the Splits set and stamped it in each corner and again heat embossed and watercolored the images.  Just a soft, pretty way to send some encouragement.

 Next I have another project using What the Doodle: Map stamps, dies, and watercolor sheets.  I started off with one of the watercolor sheets and colored the images inside the wavy road lines. Then I sponged Tropical Teal, Aqua Mist, Enchanted Evening, and New Leaf inks onto the rest and spritzed it with water. The doodled map was stamped and heat embossed with white powder onto kraft cardstock and layered over the watercolor paper.  


I stamped the "miss you" sentiment from the set below the map, then trimmed the curvy edge and adhered it to a kraft cardstock base.  I think it's a great masculine card that could be sent to a college guy, or someone in the service.

 Lastly, I have one more card using Erin's Colorful Treats set.  I stamped that awesome ice cream cone onto some watercolor paper, then colored it with my Zig Clean Color pens and layered it over an oval diecut from the Noted: Scalloped A2 set.  The sentiment is also from the Colorful Treats set, stamped onto the banner from Paper Clippings: Birthday Detail dies.


The background was cut using the Double Ups: Rectangle dies.  I stamped and heat embossed the stars from Background Basics: Galaxy, then sponged over them with Aqua Mist, Green Parakeet, Orange Zest, Bright Buttercup, and Raspberry Fizz inks.  I added some small star diecuts attached with brads to the banner, which were cut with the Shaker Shapes: Circle dies.
