Mat Stack 5 Collection...

The Papertrey Ink team is back again today with another group blog hop to show some projects made with the new Mat Stack 5 dies and stamps. These will be available on the 15th! They are so versatile...as you'll see from the team. I'm sure of it!

The Mat Stack 5 dies and stamps are perfect for a little Valentine pocket!

To create the pocket:

1. Die cut two Mega Mat Stack 5 pieces out of Raspberry Fizz felt. Stitch them together on sides and bottom, leaving top open for candy.

2. Die cut one Layerz Mat Stack 5 piece out of white cardstock. With the Mat Stack 5 stamps, stamp a houndstooth frame with Raspberry Fizz ink. Ink the edges of the cardstock with Chamomile ink.

3. Stamp the flowers from Simply Jane stamp set in Spring Moss ink. Stamp "Be My Valentine" and the hearts in Pure Poppy ink from the Tremendous Treats: Valentine stamp set. Stamp "Handmade with care" using the Handmade Hodgepodge stamp set with True Black ink.

4. Adhere to pocket.

5. Punch 2 holes to tie on a ribbon handle.


You can wrap little candies with stamped sayings like I did here. (They say "pucker up" and "i love you".) Or make little flags in Hershey Kisses with a toothpick! How about wrapping the stick of a lollipop with a handmade flag as well and adding a special note to it!
I stamped "forever" with a Mat Stack 5 stamp. To make the flag, I simply folded a strip of paper in half and trimmed the end in a V shape with my scissors.

Be My Valentine pocket and candies:

This card set, also made with the Mat Stack 5 dies and stamps, has a little bit more of a masculine feel with the blue/orange/brown color combo.


I used the Mega Mat Stack 5 die to cute the large shape from Dark Chocolate cardstock on the Feel Better card. Then I used the same large die to cut the background for the second card using some My Mind's Eye paper. The sentiments are from Mat Stack 5 also.

The card below uses both the Mega Mat Stack 5 die with Aqua Mist felt and the smaller Mat Stack die with cardstock.

Here you can see the Canyon Clay ink and a Canyon Clay button - also NEW kraft ribbon!
The text paper is a new paper pack called Dearest Jane.

Masculine card set:
Stamps: Mat Stack 5 by Papertrey Ink
Ink: Canyon Clay, Dark Chocolate, Fresh Snow, Chamomile ink by Papertrey Ink
Paper: Dearest Jane, white cardstock by Papertrey Ink
Dies: Mega Mat Stack 5, Layerz Mat Stack 5 by Papertrey Ink
Other: embossing powder, pearls, MME brad, Canyon Clay button, 
Hawaiian Shores ribbon, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, circle punch.
