Have you been following along with all of the sneak peeks over on the Papertrey Ink Blog? I am in love with so many of the new stamps they are releasing this month!!!
And, I finally get to share my projects with you! So exciting!
I love love love their new Damask Designs set! It is awesome! I used the large stamp to create the black/white embellishments that are on the edges of the page. First I stamped the image on black paper with the Papertrey Fresh Snow Ink (and can I just say that this is the best white ink I have ever used!) and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I punch it out with a large scalloped circle punch and cut it in half! I also used the Beyond Basic Borders set, the Journaling Lines set and the Mixed Messages sets on this page. Seriously so many of the stamp sets they are releasing this month are right up my alley!! Love it!
Making Memories: Letter stickers, epoxy buttons, metal photo corners
Studio Calico: Rip Strip
EK Success: Scalloped circle punch
Again I loved the Tags for Spring stamp set the moment I saw it. They are all just too cute! I kind of went outside the box on the color scheme for this one but I love how it turned out. Sometimes it is fun to pair colors that you wouldn't normally put together and as long as you have a good balance of each color it always seems to work! To create the circles I simply stamped the images onto white cardstock and then punched them out and stitched them onto my page! Simple and easy!!

And last but not least I loved this tree stamp and the tiny little messages from the Mixed Messages set so I made a quick little card. I wanted my message to show through from the inside so I punched a large scalloped circle out of the front of the card. Then I wanted my tree and butterflies to look like they were floating above the opening so I placed them on a transparency and then stitched that to the front of the card. The butterflies are from the Tags for Spring set. I simply stamped them on white cardstock and cut them out. Also, the swirly design on the inside is from the Everyday Classics set. It is a larger stamp than what I needed so I only inked the part of the stamp that I wanted to use! Its a great way to stretch your supplies and get more versatility out of your stamps!
