Papertrey July Release In Review

Papertrey's July release day has arrived! 

All of the new products the team has been showing the last few weeks will be available at 10 pm ET in the Papertrey Ink store.

Here are a few more projects using the new products ...

It's the Thought, designed by Dawn McVey, has the best sentiments! I especially like word die-cuts that go with "I think you're ..." -- wonderful, amazing, brilliant. I layered the sentiment over a pink pineapple (from Some Like It Hot) and placed it on a Stitched Tag.

The Stitched Tag pocket holds a gift card perfectly. Another idea is one of those little drink packets that you dump in the water bottles. Something tropical would be really cute with the pineapple. That would make a cute teacher treat!

Stamps: It’s The Thought, Some Like It Hot

Dies: It’s the Thought, Some Like It Hot, Stitched Tag

Ink: Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Aqua Mist

Paper: white card stock

Other: white linen thread, True Black baker’s twine

Here's my take on Betsy Veldman's adorable Dress Up Dolls: Rainy Day.

The images are heat embossed in white and watercolored.

The polka dot background paper is from the Sunshine & Rainbows Make It Market Mini Kit.

Stamps: Dress Up Dolls: Rainy Day

Dies: Dress UP Dolls: Rainy Day

Ink: Versamark

Paper: watercolor paper, Sunshine & Rainbows Make It Market Mini Kit paper, linen vellum

Other: Raspberry Fizz baker’s twine, white embossing powder, Gansai Tambi watercolors, Rainstones, foam adhesive

So many possibilities for the Background Basics: Galaxy set that Lizzie Jones designed. For today's card, I watercolored over white embossed starbursts in pastel rainbow colors.

Number the Stars, by Lizzie Jones, is a fantastic sentiment set! This quote is especially meaningful.

Stamps: Number the Stars, Background Basics: Galaxy

Dies: Number the Stars, Noted: Scalloped A2

Ink: Versamark; True Black, Pale Peony, Melon Berry, Harvest Gold, Green Parakeet, Hawaiian Shores, and Winter Wisteria

Paper: watercolor paper, white card stock

Other: white embossing powder, silver star sequins, white thread, clear Wink of Stella shimmer pen, watercolor brush

Lizzie also designed the Star Gift Box die. I immediately thought of using a star box as a magic wand. Wouldn't these make adorable party favors for a little girl's birthday party?

The sentiment is another one in the Number the Stars set.

Stamps: Number the Stars

Dies: Star Gift Box,  Number the Stars Label

Ink: Pale Peony

Paper: Harvest Gold Bitty Dot paper; White card stock

Other: silver cord, white linen thread, curling ribbon, white pompom, lollipop stick 

Done In Love is the newest in Betsy Veldman's Paper Clippings series. Love the offset heart!

To make this, I first die-cut the paper clippings out of a blue and green striped pattern from the Sunshine & Rainbows Make It Market Mini Kit. I used the actual blue-green die-cut on another project and the negative here. 

I stacked a few white die-cuts and inlaid them inside the heart opening. The gray panel behind the heart is one of the patterns in Dawn McVey's Floral Sketches paper collection.

Stamps: Paper Clippings: Done In Love

Dies: Paper Clippings: Done In Love; Paper Clippings: Done In Love Details

Ink: Pure Poppy, Green Parakeet, New Leaf

Other: black enamel dots, corner rounder, True Black baker’s twine, foam tape

I've used Splits: Best Wishes for the stamp borders and Inspired: Prayers for the sentiment.

For the word die-cut, I first stamped the striped banner image rom Background Basics: Galaxy, then die-cut the word out of it. 

Stamps: Splits: Best Wishes; Inspired: Prayer; Background Basics: Galaxy 

Dies: Splits: Best Wishes; Inspired: Prayer

Ink: Versamark; Green Parakeet, Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides

Paper: White and Aqua Mist card stock; Black and White All Over Paper Collection

Other: clear embossing powder, sewing machine, foam tape
