Hey Everyone! Today, is Day 1 of Papertrey Ink’s June release. I’m so excited to share the projects featuring two of the stamp sets that will be released on June 15th at 10 pm EST. This release is jam packed with wonderful products. You will not be disappointed! So, onto the projects…I’m sharing three basic ways to use the stamp sets.
First, you can stamp the rainbows as a background…of course! I chose to stamp a gradient rainbow.
The card size is about 3.5″ x 6.5″ – tall and slender! It’s super fun to make! I love the simplicity of the background, yet it sparks a lot of interest.
I also added one of Dawn’s new stamp sets as a focal point sentiment onto an oval die cut. Fit’s perfectly!
Second, you can stamp the rainbows as a border. For this project, I was completely inspired by the sentiment and food…peanut butter & jelly, specifically so I created a food wrap for a PB&J sandwich!
I stamped the rainbow first in Royal Velvet and Classic Kraft inks (for peanut butter and jelly), then cut it out using a pair of decorative scalloped scissors. My old scissors fit the design perfectly. I was shocked when I tested it out! Then I wrapped it around a glassine bag. I added the Dearest Jane script paper, dark chocolate strip, and some vintage trim. I also put some grosgrain ribbon to finish it off.
For the sentiment, I stamped it on Happy Day die cut. Again, it fit perfectly! I love when that happens.
You’ve gotta love a sophisticated peanut butter & jelly food wrap!
Third, I stamped the rainbows as a flower center embellishment. I used the smaller background stamps for this.
I stamped the hexagon background, which was also introduced today on Nichole’s blog. Soooo cute! I stamped the flowers with the rainbow backgrounds, then layered them on a circle die cut and a larger flower die cut. I assembled the flowers all together with some leaves and adhered them to the card front.
For the sentiment, I stamped it on rustic white cardstock, hand cut it out, then stamped only the sub-sentiment portion directly on the card front. I just love how I can separate this sentiment!
