I first created a background panel using the Stitched Quatrefoil Cover Up Die and mounted it on my kraft card base using dimensional adhesive. I stamped a floral tag using multiple ink colors and the Awesome Blossom Stamp Set on top of a square tag made with the Silly Stitched Squares.

The “hello” sentiment is cut from the Everyday Word Tag Dies and it’s paired with the “you” stamped onto the tag created with the Pretty Painted Alphas.

And now you get to hop on to the uber talented Jen Carter’s Blog to see what gorgeousness she has cooked up for you! Thank you so much for stopping by and happy hopping! πŸ™‚

Hey there! Our family is getting back from a really fun Easter weekend with great friends AND a big ole illness for my youngest. It’s been a crazy week but I am so glad to be here and give you a little more inspiration for this month’s Papertrey release.

For this first card I die cut the Mix & Mat: Scallops lace die twice from watercolor paper and then watercolored it with a few coordinating inks. I mounted the lace piece into a Soft Stone cardstock card base and stamped the “hugs” sentiment from the Lowercase Botanical Letters stamps. The flowers are stamped from the GORGEOUS Gran’s Garden stamp and die sets.

For my second card I went with a dramatically simple style.

I really wanted to show off the quote on this Melon Berry Cardstock so I stamped it once in black ink right onto the card base and then again on white cardstock. I cut out the top portion and mounted it directly on top of my card base using extra dimensional adhesive to really pop it up.

Hi there! It’s STILL Papertrey release time (I have such a great time with these extended release periods!!) and today I have THREE projects for you using Initial Sentiments: Birthday, Ways to Say: Birthday, and Kay’s Critters: Cuddly Cat.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Initial Sentiments Birthday

For my first card I decided to attempt a fun cutout around the giant “HB” sentiment for a unique design. I lined the interior with Limeade Ice cardstock for a color pop and used the circular images to add to the sentiment.

My second card is one of my favorites from this release. I used the “birthday” die from the “happy birthday” die set to create a sentiment window but left it open to show the Hibiscus Burst cardstock show from underneath. The floral Gran’s Garden accents are the perfect focal point to counter the sentiment on top.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Kays Critters Cuddly Cats

For Kay’s Critters dies I found myself increasingly obsessed with my kitty, Gypsy. So much so that I decided to create her a little toy to go along with the gift tag I made. Unfortunately the polka dots that are stamped on the tag in Soft Stone are too subtle for most of my images, but they add the perfect amount of faux texture to my simple kitty tag. I have quite a few friends who have kitties and I love buying them little treats and toys so I will definitely be making more of these. πŸ™‚

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Kays Critters Cuddly Cats

I made the toy so it separates from the tag easily and can be played with right away! πŸ™‚ I tested this one out with Gypsy and she’s a big fan. She also loves it when you dangle it from a stick hehe

Hi again friends! I have 2 cards for you today showcasing the new Lovely Lace Mini Kit by Betsy Veldman. πŸ™‚

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace Mini Kit Betsy Veldman

To create this card I trimmed a strip of the pink pattern paper and adhered it to the top of my card base. I placed a strip of grey chevron washi on top and stamped my sentiment directly onto the paper and washi. I overlapped my die cut to create a nice big lacey focal point.

For my second card I used the light blue pattern paper and I die cut it with the new Mix & Mat: Scallops scalloped die.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace Mini Kit Betsy Veldman

Using my Tiny Attacher, I adhered two corner lace pieces to the top of my scalloped die cut and then stamped right in the center of my card. I finished it off with some natural twine.
