It’s first group post day at Papertrey Ink for their 7th anniversary. There are so many great new products to see today, so let’s get started.
Today’s contest is a bunny hunt. Customers must come up with a final accurate count of bunny icons hidden in each of the design team’s main photos to be eligible to win a $70 gift certificate. There will be seven winners. All details are on Nichole’s blog.
First, I’m showcasing a new stamp set and dies called Garden Grace. WOW! This stamp set was so much fun to use that I created a set of four cards. I love all the different color combinations I came up with and how the floral sprays popped in the designs.
For the birthday card, I used berry sorbet, aqua mist, sprint moss, new leaf, and summer sunrise as my color palette.
On this card, I used plum pudding, smokey shadow, and soft stone. I also added the new Cover Plate: Diagonals to the card front. Technically, you can use any of the new “stripe” cover plates and place them on the diagonal.
On this Mother’s Day card, I used new leaf, hibiscus burst, pure poppy, pinefeather, summer sunrise, and aqua mist for my color combination. This is definitely a favorite color combo of mine now!
On the thank you card, I used summer sunrise, aqua mist, raspberry fizz, ripe avocado, simply chartreuse, and berry sorbet for my color palette.
Here are a few close-ups of one of the cards.
Next, I’m showcasing Hippity Hoppity, a new stamp set and dies for spring and Easter. I also used a new treat bag die called Bunny Bag, which is the cutest and most fun to assemble.
To create this card, I used the new Library Card to die cut the pink polka dot patterned paper. I also used Be Happy stamp (diagonal stripes) and coordinating dies for the borders. The gold stripe is some washi tape.
I used a negative die cut to showcase to the bunny and embellished it with a button and square-cut sentiment tag.
I layered it on some patterned paper showed through some vellum. The card measures 4 x 6.
My bunny treat bags came together so easily. I used a pastel color combination to coordinate with the Easter card. You can fill the bags with just about anything from candy to gift cards.
My little bunnies are holding Easter eggs stamped with Polka Dot Basics.
I used curling ribbon for the bunny whiskers. The nose is die cut from felt. and the eyes are sequins (gold layered on black).
I used the same patterned paper from the Easter card for the bunny ears so they would coordinate. Aren’t they the cutest little Easter treat bags?!
But wait, don’t forget about the bunny’s tails! I used cotton balls!
Thanks so much for checking out what I created today. I hope you are enjoying all the anniversary festivities and all the wonderful projects the entire team is creating and sharing. I definitely am!
