December Release Projects – Papertrey Ink

It’s Release Day over at Papertrey Ink! I’m showing the rest of my projects using new stamps and dies that will be released tonight at 10 pm EST. Enough chit chat, let me show you what I created!

This card is almost a one-layer design. I embellished it a bit with extra cardstock stamped with the quilling-inspired images. I used a bit of a paper piecing technique and added some stitching for texture.

Quilled Elegance is definitely an eclectic, yet luxe design. I just love how you can use it in so many ways! The sentiment is from the new Sending My Love stamp set.

To get this look, stamp the image on contrasting cardstock and hand cut, then adhere to your project. I did not adhere it completely to the card front so that I  could raise some portions up a bit.

I just love this sentiment. It really portrays how you enjoy spending time with another. So sweet!

I really love how the Framed Out stamp and die series you can choose to stamp, die cut, or both. I always have a hard time deciding what techniques I want to use on a project, but that’s a good “problem” to have with your supplies, right?!

I stamped the hearts into a background pattern, then added the interior hearts. I popped a bit of pure poppy hearts in to pull the color combination together. I also incorporated Think Big Favorites #23 by stamping the LOVE element and hand cutting it as an embellishment. I die cut the heart from the Heart-2-Heart #11 collection. The little pennants on each side are from the Countdown Details die collection.

This is such a simple design that uses multiple stamps and die collections. Love when that happens!

So, I was a bit of a nerd in school. I had one of those laminated periodic tables hanging on my wall in my bedroom. I thought it looked so cool! When I saw Love Potion included those images, it totally made me smile…BIG! 🙂 I just had to use it on my card. I was not sure what I was going to design with these stamps and dies, but I am thrilled with the results. I think because it just reminds me of a school project…told ya…I’m a nerd!

I stamped the DNA inspired chain pattern onto the graph patterned paper. Next, I stamped the sentiment onto a black cardstock strip.

I added the stamped beaker die cuts and layered them on the patterned paper with foam adhesive.

After adding the last sentiment, I stapled the paper and spiral punched the left side.

This card features Sending My Love (again). I wanted the sentiment to be the focal point, so I stamped it on a square die cut and layered it on the new Mat Stack 6.

After stamping the card front with polka dots, I added a few cardstock strips and finished it off with the sentiment embellishment.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s display of new products. Have fun shopping. But, if you need more inspiration, there is so much more to see. Check out these links and have a great day!

  • Suzanne Russell - Great projects again, Ashley! The color combos and layers you use always inspire me. My fav is the Poppy/Hawaiian Shores Sending My Love square. (I’m into squares right now) The addition of the new Mat Stack frame is my favorite detail. Merry Christmas!
