Today is the last day of new product introductions for Papertrey Ink's June release, and we are featuring the following:
1. a beautiful set of forget-me-not flowers with some different sentiments built around the words forget/forgot/forgotten
2. three huge die sets, each with a scalloped card base (A1, A2 and a square enclosure size), and each with several nested rectangles and circles or ovals. Some of the dies in each set have a scalloped edge embossing detail, and all have a built-in stitching detail
3. A companion die set of three nested scalloped edge rectangles, each with the stitching detail (on both sides of the cut line) and a scalloped edge embossing detail
All of the new products will be available at 10 pm ET tomorrow, June 15, in the Papertrey Ink store.
So for this first card, I started with an A1 scalloped card base that I cut with a die from the Noted: Scalloped A1 set. I sponged and splattered the background before adding an assortment of blue flowers stamped and diecut with the Forget Me Not stamps and dies. The word die-cut is from the Forget Me Not Sentiments die set.
On these flowers, you can see the color variation. I stamped in Spring Rain, then used a sponge dauber to ad Blueberry Sky to the stamp, then stamped again. I repeated the Blueberry Sky sponging until the flowers were as dark as I wanted.

Here I've used the Noted: Scalloped Square die set to cut a gift enclosure card base. I topped that with a stitched edge square and circle, also from the Noted: Scalloped Square set. Last are some pink forget-me-nots, and a to/from sentiment from Keep It Simple: To & From.
Forget Me Not has several flower clusters, as well as single flower images in different sizes. Lots of layering possibilities!
