It seems like you are a pumped up about this month’s Papertrey Ink release. There is so much more to see. Just you wait! Today, the design team is showcasing a plethora of birthday inspired stamps and dies; hence, my blog post title the “Ultimate Birthday Inspiration!” Without further ado, here are a couple of cards I made using some of the new stamps and dies which will be available to purchase at Papertrey Ink on July 15 at 10 PM EST.
First up is a child’s 5th birthday card. As a focal point, I used By the Numbers die to create a negative die cut on a 2.5″ Limitless Layers circle die cut. I layered it on a star patterned circle die cut that I stamped using Bitty Background Blocks II. The great new feature on this focal point is the “th” suffix style die I used. It’s a great addition to By the Numbers die set.
Next, I stamped some stars and fireworks from Red, White & Blue and finished it of with a pair of candles using Wishes Come True stamp set and dies. To create the sentiment, I used Inside & Out: Birthday II “Happy” stamp in upper left section and paired it with a Birthday Trio die.
Cardstock: white, spring rain, pure poppy, summer sunrise, blueberry sky
Ink: pure poppy, blueberry sky, summer sunrise, spring rain
Stamps: Inside & Out: Birthday II, Bitty Background Blocks II, Wishes Come True, Red White & Blue
Dies: Wishes Come True, Suffix Style, Birthday Trio, By the Numbers, Limitless Layers: 2.5″ Circles
Don’t forget to finish off those card interiors! Here is a shot of how I stamped more fireworks and stars with a sentiment from Inside & Out: Birthday II. These products are a must for all those birthday cards that we all make year ’round!
Next, I have another colorful and fun birthday card. Using Rainbow Stripes dies, I created this rainbow focal point of this card. I paired it up with Mat Stack 7 and the border in Scrolling Script. Letting the rainbows take the show, I used kraft cardstock and ink to showcase the birthday greeting from Inside & Out: Birthday II. This card came together very quickly and the possibilities of the stripe dies are endless. You are not limited to rainbow colors but also think about monotone designs and two-tone stripe designs!
Cardstock: white, kraft, pure poppy, harvest gold, summer sunrise, simply chartreuse, blueberry sky
Ink: kraft, true black
Stamps: Inside & Out: Birthday II, Scrolling Script
Dies: Rainbow Stripes, Mat Stack 7

Hey there everyone! I’ve been enjoying my summer and went on a quick vacation, but I’m back to start sharing some projects for Papertrey Ink’s July release. Today, I’m introducing Polka Dot Parade #6, designed by Melissa Bickford and full of fun polka dot inspired tree elements. All new products featured in today’s post will be available to purchase at Papertrey Ink on July 15 at 10 PM EST!
For my first card, I created a simple design by stamping a repeated thanks graphic in different ink shades. Using this technique, you can have a thank you card whipped together just in the knick of time!
Cardstock: rustic white
Ink: berry sorbet, aqua mist, simply chartreuse, fine linen, summer sunrise, lavender moon, true black
Stamps: Polka Dot Parade #6
Using the new Polka Dot Parade #6, I stamped a cluster of trees, then added die cut leaves from vintage book print. Next, I stamped the sentiment on a cardstock strip and adhered it to the card front with foam adhesive.
Cardstock: aqua mist, summer sunrise
Ink: true black
Stamps: Polka Dot Parade #6
Dies: Polka Dot Parade #6
Other: vintage book print
Full of life and color, I designed this card with summer in mind. I wanted the tree to bloom so many flowers, so I just stamped away! I added the sentiment and a bit of patterned paper at the bottom half of the card.
Cardstock: rustic white, spring moss
Ink: dark chocolate, hibiscus burst, sweet blush, summer sunrise, winter wisteria, lavender moon, harvest gold
Stamps: Polka Dot Parade #6
Tools: scalloped scissors
Continuing with the seasonal concept, I designed this winter thank you card. To create the wreath, I used the branch wreath from Wreath For All Seasons stamp set as a guide. I stamped leaves in various sizes and colors until it was full. Last, I added a few red flowers. I hand cut the wreath and added the sentiment.
Cardstock: kraft, vintage cream
Ink: ripe avocado, pinefeather, limeade ice, simply chartreuse, pure poppy, spring moss, fine linen
Stamps: Polka Dot Parade #6, Winter Hills, Wreath For All Seasons
Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I created using Polka Dot Parade #6! I hope you’ve drummed up a few ideas for this great new stamp set and dies. Not only can you do so much with the leaves, but the “thanks” sentiment is so perfect. I hope you add it to your wish list for Monday night! I’ll be back tomorrow with more projects to share. Take care!
Hey there! Sorry I’ve been a bit silent here on the blog. Today, I’m posting some cards I created using Studio Calico’s July kits (Valley High)!
*Main Card Kit Only*
This fun and cheery friendship card is super simple to throw together. I added the hand cut stamped image over the patterned paper.
This fun card features a flower embellishment made from ribbon and secured with a fabric brad. I added some wood veneer embellishments and the summer sentiment from the main card kit.
