Introducing Mountain Majesty and Year of Psalms: July...
July 14, 2017
Good morning! Can you smell the fresh mountain air? If you can, I'm jealous...just some hot, dry cornfields here. I've been dreaming of the mountains all week as I've been creating projects with my new stamp set and dies that I get to showcase today for the Papertrey Ink countdown!
The Mountain Majesty stamp set features a multi-step mountain border, some tree clusters, and a couple of soaring eagles. This is a set I've been wanting personally for a while now, so I'm excited to be able to bring it to life. The mountain border is long enough to fit the 5-1/2" side of an A2 card, or can be trimmed to fit a vertical card, of course. There are three steps - the base, mountain detail, and an option snowcap detail layer that can be added (super fun with white embossing powder).
There is also a coordinating cover plate called Cover Plate: Mountain Majesty. It has a pretty mountain scene with trees, and also a solid panel build in for an easy place to add a sentiment.
Also being showcased today, and pairing up perfectly with the Mountain Majesty stuff is this month's Year of Psalms set. This month's verse is another favorite of mine, and is from Psalm 121:1-2. So perfect for sympathy, get well, and encouragement cards.
All of these new products will be available for purchase beginning at 10pm ET on July 15th from Papertrey Ink.
Now for some projects using these new sets. My first card combines all three new products being introduced today - Mountain Majesty stamp set, cover plate, and the Year of Psalms set. Who says mountains always have to be gray or brown? Here I stamped them in shades of purple, and created a vibrant sunset in the background.
I started with a white card base and sponge Royal Velvet, Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, and Summer Sunrise inks. Then I pulled out the hear/rays stencil from the Sunshine & Rainbows kit and sponged those same ink colors again. The heart didn't quite go with my card, but it's hidden behind the solid panel, so it worked great. I diecut the Mountain Majesty cover plate and sponged it with the same ink colors. I did some simple masking on the tree to sponge that with green ink.
The mountain border added at the bottom was stamped with Winter Wisteria and Royal Velvet ink. I tucked the tree clusters between the mountain border and the cover plate. I stamped the Year of Psalms sentiment in black in and added a couple of eagles, also from Mountain Majesty.
It's fun to think about the different sky treatments you can pair with the mountains. I posted my northern lights card the other day, and this one uses the XL Rainbow die. I diecut it from white cardstock and sponged ink onto it using the stencils from the Sunshine & Rainbows kit.
I added a stamped mountain border along the bottom, stamped with Classic Kraft and Cocoa Bean ink.
The sentiment is from the Inspired: Hope set, stamped with True Black and Stormy Sea ink. I added a few eagles as well.
My last card uses the new Mountain Majesty cover plate die to create a Christmas card. I stamped some pine branches onto the card base behind the diecut using the Spruce & Sprigs set, and also sponged some Spring Rain ink.
I stamped some more branches and berries onto the solid panel of the diecut, and the sentiment from the Winter Village set.
The house nestled in the mountains is from the Winter Village set as well.
I hope you enjoyed today's projects - the last of the product reveals for the July countdown! All of the new stuff will go live in the store tomorrow night!
