This year is flying by! The great news is that every month, you can create with new paper crafting products that fill your creative heart with joy. Papertrey Ink’s November Release will be here before you know it. Today, I have a few projects to share with you to showcase the upcoming release of Erin Lincoln’s Fill in the Blank stamps and dies.

Fill in the Blank is a clever text background design that allows you to fill in the blank with a color of your choice. You can do so much with this set, such as create backgrounds behind the text with watercoloring, ink blending, stenciling and more! I’ve used a few of those techniques in my card designs. I hope they inspire you to create with this fun new product collection.

My first card features Fill in the Blank stamps and dies. I used one of the larger dies in the collection to cut out the stamped text background. In the background, I watercolored using hues of pinks and yellows and oranges.

I used the previously released Peonies on Parade stamps as a background for my card base. I stamped the peonies and used post-it note masks to cluster the flowers and leaves together. To bring the peonies to life, I embellished the stamens with a pop of white using a gel pen.

The unique feature with Fill in the Blank is the option to highlight the sentiment in various ways. On this card, it shows how you can use a coordinating die cut to stamp the sentiment.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - November 2016 - #AshleyCannonNewell #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk - Birthday Style + Keep It Simple: Birthday III + Fill in the Blank

Lauren has a birthday party to attend this weekend, so I decided to make a card for her to gift to her friend. I wanted to showcase how Fill in the Blank looks using a negative die cut technique and what better way to do that than with balloons for a birthday card, right?!

I paired Birthday Style stamps and dies with Keep It Simple: Birthday III stamp with Fill in the Blank to create this card design. I couldn’t resist the balloons and streamers for this festive occasion.

After die cutting the largest balloon (which you’ll see more about soon), I stamped the balloon strings to align with the other balloon die cuts.

I stamped the text background and ink blended some yellow hues onto the white cardstock. This card showcases another way to feature a sentiment using Fill in the Blank. I told you all there were lots of ways to use this stamp set!

Last, I stamped the sentiment from Keep It Simple: Birthday III (a part of the November 2016 Release) onto a banner die cut.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - November 2016 - #AshleyCannonNewell #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk - Garden Garland + Fill in the Blank

This card highlights the last text background included in the set. When you need a card quickly to jot down a note for whatever reason, just because is the perfect sentiment.

To showcase the stamps, I used Garden Garland dies.

Remember my first card in this post with the peonies? I used the other part of the watercolor and made this card. Don’t waste a thing!

I stamped the text background and highlighted the just because text. The garland softens the harsh rectangular die cut lines.
