It's release day at Papertrey Ink. The January release will be available at 10 pm ET in the Papertrey Ink store.
Today the team is sharing a few remaining projects using the fantastic January product designs. Here are mine:
My first card combines Inspired: God, designed by Betsy Veldman, with Gathered Garden, designed by Nichole Heady. I chose to work with a dark, dramatic color combo, mixing in blues, greens, grays, and browns.
I stamped the images, then used a paintbrush and a little water to move the color around. The word die-cut is triple-stacked for some extra dimension. I framed the composition with a Cover Plate: Delightful die-cut.
Stamps: Inspired: God; Gathered Garden
Dies: Inspired: God; Cover Plate: Delightful; Moments Inked: Planner Banners
Ink: Dark Indigo, Stormy Sea, Soft Stone, Spring Rain, Fine Linen, Honey Nut, Pinefeather
Paper: watercolor paper, Stormy Sea card stock
Other: Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed-Proof White, paintbrush
Next, I'm getting a head start on Mother's Day with Dawn McVey's Family Ties and Nichole Heady's Floribunda Frame die.
Again, I triple-stacked the word die-cut for dimension. The rest of the sentiment is stamped in Stormy Sea. I die-cut one extra tiny flower to use as an accent on the "M."
My flowers were watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. The leaves were painted with New Leaf and Green Parakeet re-inkers.
I used Vintage Cream Linen card stock for the card base, which is a nice change from the usual brighter white.
Stamps: Family Ties
Dies: Family Ties: For the Girls; Floribunda Frame; Noted: Scalloped A2
Ink: Stormy Sea, Green Parakeet, New Leaf
Paper: watercolor paper, Vintage Cream linen card stock, Lilac Grace card stock
Other: Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, paintbrush
Last is another fun rainbow card. This one combines Maile Belles' Splits: Hello There with Nichole's Grand Botanicals die collection.
Each of the flowers is in two layers The base is watercolored, and the detailed layer is the card stock of the same color.
I stamped some of the Splits: Hello There patterns into some of the flowers, and accented others with a white gel pen. Each flower has been topped with a button in the same color. The big January sale starts tonight, and a selection of buttons will be reduced to just $1 a bag! Sale details are posted HERE. In the background I used two of the accent images in Splits: Hello There to add a little interest to the Smokey Shadow background.

Paper: watercolor paper, Smokey Shadow, Hawaiian Shores, Green Parakeet, Harvest Gold, Orange Zest, and Pure Poppy card stock
