I have more exciting release projects today! One of the sets being introduced for today's Papertrey Ink July countdown is the next installment of my Cloche Quarters collection - this one is filled with summery things to put inside the cloches from the original Cloche Quarters set. There are orchids, seashells, a watering can, and a cute sailboat.
The new Cloche Quarters: Summer Filler set and coordinating dies, along with anything else I mention as "new" in today's post will be available for purchase beginning at 10pm ET on July 15 from the Papertrey Ink website.
My first card today has a rustic beach-y feel. I stamped the shells and ship in shades of blue and red/coral. The actual cloche and base stamps are from the original Cloche Quarters set released a few months ago.
I created a fun collage of elements using the new Mix & Mat: Postal dies, along with a stitched rectangle (cut using the Noted: Scalloped A2), stamped with some postal images from the older Postmarks set.
The background was embossed using the Woodgrain Metal Stencil, sponged with a little Spring Rain ink and splatters with some Classic Kraft ink refill. I also added a few wooden stars from the Holiday Folk mini kit.
My next card uses a few of the other icons from the Summer Filler set - the watering can and one of the potted orchids (there are two different potted orchids).
I stamped everything in bright, summery colors. There is a separate die for just the pot, so you can use that alone, or combine it with the bouquet from the watering can, for which there is also a separate die. Lots of options! I put the watering can under the shorter cloche and perched it on the pedastal from the original set.
The whole works was layered over a Mix & Mat: Postal diecut, stamped with a sentiment from the Inspired: Prayer set. The background was made by stamping the tools from the Garden Variety set onto Green Parakeet cardstock using New Leaf ink. I diecut the panel with the Noted: Scalloped A2 die to get the stitched and scalloped edge, then layered it over a white card base.
My last card is cleaner, simpler take, using the shell cluster from the CQ: Summer Fillers set. I used the larger cloche and created a shaker filled with micro beads the color of sand.
I layered this over a panel that was cut with the stitched border and chevron insert from the new Mix & Mat: Postal die set. I sponged some Sweet Blush ink onto my card base before layering the diecut panel, so the soft pink would show under the chevron cut-outs.
I perched my finished shaker on the pedestal from the original CQ set, stamped in Fine Linen ink. The sentiment stamped along the bottom is from another new set you'll be seeing more of soon called Infinity Frames Sentiments.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're enjoying the countdown so far - lots of great stuff yet to show over the next few days! ;-) If you'd like to see more of the Cloche Quarters: Summer Fillers set, stop by Nichole's blog!
