March 2012 Release Projects | Papertrey Ink

Today’s the day…you get to see the remaining projects the design team has created using the new Papertrey Ink products to be released tonight at 10 pm. I apologize if not all of the supply links work, but I tried checking each of them. I’m sure I missed some. Whoops! Thanks so much for your nice comments during the release!

I love bird stamps and these images illustrated by Heather are amazing. I paired the set with Door to Door to create a bit of a scenic view. I layered the stamps on vintage book print. I painted over top of the book print using Making Memories Manila acrylic paint to mute the black text a bit. I also created a decorative border using pinking shears.

On the background of the card front, I stamped the Background Basics: Wrought Iron set using Fine Linen ink. I love the elegant design in that stamp!

My dad had a passion for golf. I wish he was still here to be able to teach me the same appreciation he had for the greens! However, I do know a couple of lady golfers and thought it would be great to design a feminine golf card for them. I paired this set with A Little Argyle because it would not be a golf card without that diamond pattern. I also stitched on a journal tab to add the sentiment.

On the background of this card, I dry embossed the Wrought Iron design. I really love the results – so elegant and luxurious! I added a pocket die cut and some flowers to create this birthday card.


It seems to me like balloons are making a comeback in party decor. Balloons have a way to bring on excitement and happiness, so I thought they would be perfect to make someone feel better…on a card if you can’t give them in person! These balloons are too cute and they are so easy to stamp on the coordinating die cut. I stamped the sentiment on aqua mist striped patterned paper. Simple, yet cheerful!

Speaking of cheerful, how about some cupcakes?! Who wouldn’t want a cupcake or three to celebrate their birthday? After coloring the cupcakes with Copic markers, I hand cut them and adhered them onto the mat stack die cut. After adding some patterned paper, ribbon, and border stitching, you’re done and have a fun card to share with friends!

I love this Framed Out series! Instead of using the die cuts this time, I wanted to showcase how you can use this beautiful image to create a background. I stamped the image at an angle to create the diamond effect. I used the ever-so-popular pink and orange color combination. This card came together in a matter of minutes and would be perfect for mailing!

The *new* and non-linked supplies shown today will be available for purchase tonight! I hope you have enjoyed this month’s release. Have fun shopping and thanks so much for your visit!
