Hello Friends! It’s that time of the month again…Papertrey Ink’s monthly release. Just where does the time go? I’m excited to be working with some new products and concepts, which will be available for each of you to purchase on August 15 at 10 pm EST. Today, I am previewing Sunflower Bouquet, a wonderful autumn stamp set with a coordinating die. It features some enlarged images and sentiments from Autumn Abundance. Here are a few cards I made with it…
Here is a one layer card I created. I masked off the vase/flower image by using the die cut, then stamped the oval shadow in soft stone ink. Next, I stamped the image in a watermark ink and heat embossed it with black embossing power.
To add color to the image, I used a watercolor paints, which you can also do with your reinkers! The rustic white cardstock held of very well using the water onto the paper. To get those white speckles, I used a white gel pen. So much fun!
I stamped the sentiment in true black ink and wrapped twine around the card front. I also added a a couple strips of 1/4″ patterned paper to the top and bottom of the card front. For the last step, I rounded the bottom two corners of the card.
And here’s the card again! I hope you like it! Now, here is a list of the supplies (minus Sunflower Bouquet, which will be available August 15 at 10 pm EST).
For my next card, I have a little bit of a country style. I think this stamp set compliments the country style very well. So, I paired it up with On the Farm stamp set.
I stamped the sentiment vertically on the right side of the card front. In this image, you can also see the shipping tag I used has a beautiful dry embossed herringbone pattern. This is a new impression plate that will be available August 15. Dawn McVey will have lots to share on her blog about that product collection!
Here, you can see the checkerboard pattern I stamped on the bottom. I also added a strip of raspberry fizz polka dot patterned paper.
I die cut the image, stamped it, and colored it with Copic markers. I also paper pieced the pitcher.
Last, I added paint around the edges. I hope you like it! I can’t believe I colored! Here are the supplies I used.
For my last card, I used more traditional sunflower colors…perfect for the fall.
I paired it with a calendar patterned paper. I die cut the image, stamped and colored it. I added patterned paper stripes, stitching around the border and ribbon treatment.
The last thing I did was stamp the sentiment.
Here’s the last image and the supply list!
