Introducing Splits: Get Well Soon

[For my Moments Inked Planner newsletter post, please click HERE.]

Hello, friends, Papertrey's April release countdown is underway! We have a fabulous release planned for April 15 and lots to share between now and then!

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

Today I have the pleasure of introducing Splits: Get Well Soon. This is the third in a fabulous series designed by Maile Belles.

So take a look at that darling image! I love how it shows both the sun and the rain. Splits: Get Well Soon comes with the the basic image, the get well soon sentiment, a filler image for adding color and pattern to the sun, and a pair of raindrops for stamping some extra rain. 

Here, I've created a delightfully CAS card: I just stamped the main image in black on white card stock, added some rain drops, and popped up a second die-cut sentiment on foam tape. The popped up die-cut has been stamped with the extra sun image.

Stamps: Splits: Get Well Soon

Dies: Splits: Get Well Soon

Ink: True Black, Aqua Mist, Bright Buttercup

Paper: Stamper's Select White and Soft Stone card stock

Other: foam adhesive, W00 and W0 Copic markers

The main Splits: Get Well Soon image also works well with so many other Papertrey products -- keep reading for just a few ideas!

Here, I've stamped a sentiment from Rainy Day Sentiments onto a Tag Sale: Quilted banner strip die-cut, and added it to the Splits: Get Well Soon die-cut. I popped this up onto some papers from the Petite Places and So Striking patterned paper collections.

It's like this sentiment and this image were made for each other! I also like the imagery on the papers, even the road suggests you're going from the storm right into the rising sun.

Here's another fun combo with a previously released stamp set. This sentiment is from Blue Skies. I've framed the stamped panel with pieces from a new frame die designed by Erin Lincoln. She has two frame dies this month, the one I used is the Cover Plate: Marquee die. Like her previously released Pretty Frame and Scroll Frame, these new frames have separate elements that make combining colors super easy. It's also like getting multiple frame dies for the price of one!

I stamped the rainbow lines using one of the images in Plaid Builder. The rainbow gives a nice look at some of the new PTI colors, too -- Bright Buttercup, Green Parakeet, and this month's Amethyst Allure.

Paper: Stamper's Select White and Hawaiian Shores card stock; Hawaiian Shores Polka Dot pattern paper

Other: True Black baker's twine

And last is another sweet CAS card:

All I've done here is stamp the bottom half of the image in True Black ink onto a cloud pattern from Maile's So Striking paper collection. 

I added a few sequins, some twine, and a strip of True Black Stripe patterned paper for a border. I don't think you can see this well in the picture (I can hardly see it when I'm holding the card in my hand!) but I added tiny drops of Glossy Accents to the rain drops, too.

Wow--you are so creative! I love every one of these cards! Thanks for the inspiration!

Kathy Mc said...

Amy, you are so creative and come up with the greatest designs! All four cards are awesome, but your Sunny Skies Ahead had me wondering how you got that subtle background...and then I read on. Scrolling down I then spotted your rainbow idea and then your last one (although your supply list is wrong) - all swoonworthy!

Amy Sheffer said...

Oops, thanks for letting me know about the supply list! I cut and pasted from above, but forgot to edit. All fixed now. Thank you for your kind words, too!
