Introducing Woodblock Prints

Welcome to Papertrey Ink's June release countdown. Today is a real treat! We are introducing a product group called Woodblock Prints, designed by Nichole Heady and inspired by Indian woodblock print fabrics. Woodblock Prints includes stamps, patterned paper, and stencils. 

All of the new products will be available at 10 pm ET on June 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.

These products are so incredibly fun to play with! For this card, I stamped a pattern with one of the Woodblock Prints images, heat embossed in white, and then watercolored with Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal, and Enchanted Evening.

The sentiment was cut with the Big Basics: Thanks die and coated with clear Wink of Stella. Behind the word die-cut is a strip that I stamped with two more images in the Woodblock Prints set.

Ink: Versamark, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal, Enchanted Evening, Green Parakeet

Paper: Stamper's Select white card stock; white watercolor paper

Other: foam adhesive, clear Wink of Stella brush pen, white embossing powder

For this next card, I started with a die-cut card base, then added blocks of the Woodblock Prints Paper Collection. I added my sentiment on top, along with a sprinkling of sequins. So easy to make!

"Thinking of You" was die-cut with the Big Basics: Thinking of You die, and the rest of the sentiment is from The Skinny, a new stamp set by Dawn McVey. You'll find out more about the die-cut card base tomorrow!

Ink: Aqua Mist, Tropical Teal, Enchanted Evening

Other: foam adhesive, white satin sequins

My last card features the Woodblock Prints Stencils. There are are four different stencils in the collection. I've used two of them. There is Aqua Mist solid shape stenciling in the background and then Enchanted Evening detail stenciling on top of that. I stamped the little circle medallion image in Green Parakeet to bring in a little more color.

"Thanks" was cut with the Big Basics: Thanks die and sponged with Aqua Mist, Tropical Teal, and Enchanted Evening inks. 

Before stenciling, I taped the edges of the panel with washi tape. With the second stencil still in place, I spritzed with some clear shimmer spray. Before removing the washi tape, I sponged a little bit of Green Parakeet around the perimeter. The pretty scalloped panel is another new die that you'll learn  more about tomorrow!

Gorgeous! Love the designs of each card, from the simplicity of the one from the paper pack squares to the details on the 2 Thanks cards. Love your new header, too.

Oh Amy - all of your designs today were spectacular, much more artistic than just stmping or stencilling. Your details made such a difference and I oohed and aahed at each card. That hasn't happened to me in a long time and was such a pleasure! Thanks for helping make my mornin.
