Introducing Tulip Time, Spring Woods, and Splits


The Papertrey ninth anniversary festivities continue today with lots more incredible product introductions. Today on the docket: Tulip Time by Betsy, Spring Woods by Nichole and a new series from Maile called Splits. The first in that series is Splits: Just A Note. In addition, there are some Friendship Jar goodies that fans of that series have been requesting!

All of the new products will be available at 10 pm EST February 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.


I couldn't wait to give the beautiful Tulip Time multi-step images a go, especially in shades of yellow. The new Bright Buttercup is a perfect middle tone between Lemon Zest and Summer Sunrise, which are the other two colors I used on the tulips. For the leaves and stems, Ripe Avocado over Spring Moss is always a favorite.

In the background I sponged a touch of Aqua Mist over one of the new Modern Backgrounds stencils. I cannot even tell you how excited I am about these stencils! 

I arranged multiple scalloped frames over the background for a fun look. I can't take credit for that idea, and I can't give credit either, because I really don't know where it came from. Maybe a fellow paper crafter did something similar? I wish I could remember!

Anyway I love the soft, sweet look of the frames and the hint of aqua mist in the background. The whole card feels so fresh and spring-like!
