I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day. But, this weekend keeps getting better because today is Papertrey Ink’s February release day. That means tonight at 10PM EST, you can order all the new stamps, dies, and paper that was revealed over the past few days. I’m sharing the remainder of my cards right now…so here they go!
I paired up Circle Scribbles with Birthday Classics: February for this card design. I also used the new February die cut. I love how you can use emboss-resist and a watercolor technique with Circle Scribbles.
Stamps: Birthday Classics: February, Circle Scribbles
Ink: Orange Zest, Hibiscus Burst, Sweet Blush, True Black, Versamark
Cardstock: White, Hibiscus Burst, Aqua Mist
Other: Gold Embossing Powder, Watercolor Brush, Sequins
Using Phrase Play #1, I let the die cut steal the show. I used the new Tropical Teal cardstock and paired it with Limeade Ice.
Using an embellishment built from Button Stacks die cuts, I added a leaf from Leave It Be!
Stamps: Phrase Play #1, Polka Dot Basics
Ink: Pure Poppy, New Leaf
Cardstock: Tropical Teal, Limeade Ice
Patterned Paper: Sweet Blush, Kraft
Felt: Pure Poppy
Other: Pure Poppy grosgrain ribbon, Adhesive Cork

Next, I designed a card using Sweet Speech and Limitless Layers Labels.
I stamped the floral pattern on patterned paper.
The Limited Layers Labels stamps pair perfectly with Limitless Layers: Squares!

Ink: Melon Berry, Aqua Mist, Hibiscus Burst, Summer Sunrise, Sweet Blush, Hawaiian Shores
Cardstock: Vintage Cream
Dies: Limitless Layers: Squares, Sweet Speech

Be Happy is such a fun new stamp and die set. I enjoyed making this card. I paired it with Keep It Simple: Birthday.
I die cut the Polaroid-inspired frame and layered the Be Happy frame inside. I used a felt butterfly die cut as the central focal point.
Next, I added a couple of Rustic Wreath die cuts and embellished it with sequins.
To coordinate the sentiments, I added it on a tag and the cardstock block.
Stamps: Be Happy, Keep It Simple: Birthday
Ink: True Black, Blueberry Sky
Cardstock: Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Blueberry Sky, Vintage Cream, Sweet Blush, Vellum
Patterned Paper: Crate Paper
Dies: Be Happy, Fabulous Frames, Tremendous Tags, Rustic Wreath
Other: Sequins, Twine
For my Leave It Be card, I used a new-to-me technique. It looks like patterned watercolor effect. I love it! I used reinkers and a baby wipe to achieve this effect. I also used the generation stamping technique to get varying hues of the leaves.
Isn’t it cool? If you’d like to see a video of this technique, let me know in the comments and I’ll try to get it done before the baby arrives!
For the sentiment, I added it to a Mat Stack 5 die cut and embellished it with more leaf die cuts, button, and ribbon. I just love these encouraging sentiments from A Little Inspiration.
The sentiment continues to the card inside. I preferred this sentiment to be separate, but you can easily choose to keep it together as well.
Stamps: Leave It Be, A Little Inspiration
Ink: Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest, True Black
Cardstock: Vintage Cream, Raspberry Fizz, Aqua Mist
Dies: Leave It Be, Mat Stack 5
Other: Raspberry Fizz Twill Tape, Hibiscus Burst Button, Twine
