July 2012 Release Projects | Papertrey Ink

Welcome to the final day of Papertrey Ink’s July Release Countdown. The new products will be available to purchase tonight at 10 pm EST. Myself and the rest of the team are sharing remaining projects we have created with the new stamps, dies, and such! So, here are mine…

Hey there card showcases Floral Foliage and Signature Greetings II. I had this idea to create a sunshine and hills card, but in non-realistic colors, so I ended up with this neutral card with a realistic tree!

The buttons are covered with stickles and are the “apples” in the tree! I also stitched around each of the sunshine die cuts.

For the center of the card, I stamped the polka dot background and added the rolling hills.

While I was using this The Sweet Life, I thought about the Geico commercial’s slogan, “It’s so easy, a caveman can do it.” It really is! The three-step stamp building process to create beautiful roses is super simple with great results as if you’ve colored or painted the details yourself.

This card makes me think of Country Living magazine. I guess it’s the combination of the color combination, chicken wire background, and floral pattern.

For this month’s Heart-2-Heart design, I created simple and fun card.

I stamped the sun peeking from behind the cloud die cuts. I combined a patterned cloud with solid cardstock clouds. I bordered the patterned paper with striped patterned paper.

I stamped Think Big Favorites #18 sentiment in a subtle soft stone ink and added some fun stitching underneath.

For my last card of this release, I created a card for little boys! I hardly ever have to make one of these, so I tried really hard to pull it all together! It all started with some patterned paper to get me started on a color combination and I just went from there!

I added a library pocket and a library card insert. Since the library card was a bit plain, I added Super Stars and some star pops!

On the library pocket, I added the little plane and the sentiment trailing behind the plane. I really like the way this turned out. It’s a 4.5″ square card, the perfect size for a little one! There are so many other sentiments that would work great with this design too.

Alright, that’s all I have to share today. Make sure you check out the rest of the team’s projects as well. I can’t wait to see what they created too!

    Ashley, I love your cards. I like the neutral use of the Fine Linen in the first card. Your second Sweet Life card is absolutely gorgeous. I would never have thought to use the chicken wire with the roses. What a combo. So pretty. I like the stars shooting out of the pocket and the use of the library card stamp. Thumbs up. :)ReplyCancel

    Wonderful projects, Ashley. Love that all neutral card with the rolling hills and the sunrays and the little pop of color with the tree.ReplyCancel

  • GabbyJuly 15, 2012 - 3:14 pm

    Every single card is wonderful! The new, fresh and clever perspective you bring to the PTI release products each month, is so inspiring. I am so glad you are on the DT. LOVE the sunshine card. Love the way you changed up the traditional “sun” colors to neutrals, combining it with Mel’s new tree. Those sweet, stickled, button apples are terrific. The three-ste roses on your “life” card are so very pretty. The thank you card sports such a nice sketch and the way you layered the front panel, showing the faux stitched, solid color on just two sides, is so cool. The striped bkgrd is perfect, as well. Your flying by card is adorable. The wide stripes of color nicely anchor and support all of the awesome layers of printed papers, stamped images, and die cuts. Another FAB post, Ashley! :)ReplyCancel
