On this clean and simple card, I used Keep It Simple: Thanksgiving and Autumn Abundance. To get a variety of fall colors into this image, I inked my stamp using summer sunrise first, then bits of it in terracotta tile. Love this result!

This card uses Birthday Classics: September along with Tick Tock. I love how you can align the sentiments in Birthday Classics as you see fit. I butted them against each other on this card.

My last card combines Along Came a Spider die cuts with Happy Spooky Halloween images.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink

I love the Along Came a Spider web dies! The dotted outlines they create are perfect for background designs. And I just love the fun colors of Halloween. These bats are the cutest and I’d never think I’d say that about bats! It’s such a fun card design.

Today, the design team is posting projects for Halloween and more. There are a lot of new Halloween inspired products being introduced, but a couple of the stamp sets can be used for general occasions. Superstition is a set with cat silhouettes. When paired with other sentiments, including Everyday Cat Sentiments, they can be used for countless other ways. All of these new items will be available for purchase on August 15th at 10 pm EST at Papertrey Ink.

My first card is great for the Halloween lover in your lives. I used the stamps and dies in Superstition for the cat, broom, and witch hat.

I combined lots of patterned papers on this card, including Papertrey Ink’s sweet blush stripes and Crate Paper’s Style Board collection. For the border, I used Haunted Borders chain link die again and trimmed it to create a unique scalloped border.

Today, the Papertrey Ink design team is showcasing Fancy That, a new stamp set that has lots of elegantly designed medallions you can use for so many occasions. I’ve designed two cards – one simple and the other not so simple! All of these new items will be available for purchase on August 15th at 10 pm EST at Papertrey Ink.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink

My first card uses one of the medallions in Fancy That. What I love most is that you can simply stamp the images and let them be or add more coloring techniques.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink

I stamped the medallion in hawaiian shores, white, and hibiscus burst inks. I used soft stone as my base cardstock and embellished each medallion with a sequin and rhinestone. Last, I stamped the sentiment at an angle.

Supplies

Stamps: Fancy That

Ink: Hibiscus Burst, White, Hawaiian Shores

Cardstock: Soft Stone, Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shores

Other: sequins, rhinestones

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink

My simple card design uses another one of the medallions. I stamped half of the medallion on the edge of the soft stone cardstock. I embellished the centers with a rhinestone and stamped the sentiment. I added the stamped cardstock to a 4×6 hibiscus burst card base to have a bit of a border on the left side.

    Two great cards…simple and yet so elegant. I like the diagonal cut on the sentiment on the first and the use of a medallion as a border on the second. Thanks for the inspiration!ReplyCancel

  • TedfamAugust 14, 2014 - 6:39 am

    Love the simple card idea; taking a detailed stamp and using it, as in the Just A Note card- great idea; the stamps are detailed enough to stand alone and do the trick!ReplyCancel
