Hello there friends! It’s Monday and the 15th, which means it’s Papertrey Ink’s release day. Tonight at 10 pm EST, you can shop ’til you drop in the store to purchase all the new stamps, dies, and paper that are available. To tie you over, I have created a few more cards to share.
My first card uses Birthday Classics: October. I really wanted to create a mail-friendly one-layer card. I read a lot about how many people on the Papertrey Ink forum are always looking for more one-layer designs.
The leaves add a pop of color to the design.
Stamps: Leave It Be, Birthday Classics: October
Cardstock: Vintage Cream
Ink: Simply Chartreuse, Fine Linen, Ripe Avocado, Canyon Clay, Terracotta Tile, Classic Kraft
My next card uses Wet Paint: Holiday (sentiments). I paired it up with Peaceful Pinecones.
Here’s a tip: I made my own custom ink color by inking my pinecone stamp into classic kraft ink, then a little in dark chocolate ink, then again in classic kraft. You get a unique color and something more natural like you would fine on pinecones.
Stamps: Peaceful Pinecones, Wet Paint: Holiday
Ink: Ripe Avocado, Classic Kraft, Dark Chocolate, gold
Cardstock: Rustic White
Other: corner chomper
Christmas will be here before you know it, so I wanted to make lots of one-layer card designs. I paired up Season’s Greetings with City Scenes Sentiments and Note Niblets. This design can be something you use on the exterior or interior of your holiday card designs.
Stamps: Note Niblets, Season’s Greetings, City Scene Christmas Sentiments
Ink: True Black, Pure Poppy
Sticking with the one-layer theme, I designed this fun card. I chose to use a unique color for a Christmas card. Although it’s a simple design, the extra heat embossing step makes it so divine. I coupled O’Tannenbaum with Keep It Simple: Merry Christmas.
Stamps: O’Tannenbaum, Keep It Simple: Christmas
Ink: Versamark, True Black
Cardstock: Hawaiian Shores
Other: gold embossing powder
I wanted to add some layers for this card, so I used patterned papers and some square die cuts. I paired Santa’s Sleigh with Keep It Simple: Season’s Greetings. I heat embossed the reindeer image on vellum.
Stamps: Keep It Simple: Season’s Greetings, Santa’s Sleigh
Ink: Pure Poppy, Versamark
Cardstock: Pinefeather, Fine Linen, Rustic White, vellum
Patterned Paper: Crate Paper (Bundled Up)
Dies: Limitless Layers: Squares
Other: white embossing powder
My last card uses a unique color combination for a holiday card. I used Phrase Play #8 with Sparkle & Shine patterned paper. I die cut the Phrase Play #8 die twice and swapped the colors between hawaiian shores and raspberry fizz.
Stamps: Phrase Play #8
Ink: Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse
Cardstock: Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores,
Dies: Phrase Play #8
Patterned Paper: Sparkle & Shine
