May products at Papertrey Ink.

Today is release day, in which the Papertrey Ink team posts all of their creations with the new products that are up for sale today (the 15th of each month)! Let's get started!

The first card is made with the new Flipping Out stamp set and little Flipping Out die! Are these not "flippin" adorable! You can die cut the flip flops and add little flowers and hearts to embellish them. Oh, so cute.
On the close-up, you can see I added some dimension to the tops of the flip flops by popping them up with dimensional adhesive. I used a border die as the "sand" and stuck the flip flops in the sand!
This one is a quickly stamped card. These would both be great for a teacher to wish them a happy summer vacation! I stamped the flip flops as if they were walking.
The "happy summer" is stamped with Classic Kraft ink, and I thought Hawaiian Shores, Raspberry Fizz and Harvest Gold were summery colors to go with the theme!
Flip Flop cards:
STAMPS: Flipping Out
INK: Harvest Gold, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, True Black, Classic Kraft
PAPER: Raspberry Fizz cardstock, Aqua Mist cardstock, white, Hawaiian Shores cardstock, Aqua Mist patterned paper, Summer Sunrise patterned paper
DIES: Flipping Out, Edgers #4 (scallop)
OTHER: Embroidery Floss, pearls.

Next, I used the Chevron Die and Think Big Favorites # 16 stamps. There are two different ways I came up with to use the chevrons!

1. You can cut the large one from cardstock and layer it with the smaller chevron cut from patterned paper for a neat look like this:

2. You can also off-set the top chevron layer just slightly (the smaller one) like I did here to create an argyle look! Many fun things to be made with the chevron dies! I can't wait to play more with these. Really addicted to chevron these days.
Chevron cards:
STAMPS: Think Big Favorites #16
INK: Dark Chocolate
PAPER: white, Canyon Clay, Aqua Mist and Kraft cardstock, Summer Sunrise patterned paper, Classic Kraft patterned paper, Aqua Mist patterned paper
DIES: Chevron Stripe Borders

This card uses the new Fillable Frames Sentiments. I went crazy with stars here and stitched them down with my machine.
The patterned papers I used here are Aqua Mist, new Fine Linen and new Summer Sunrise patterned paper.
Celebrate Good Times card:
STAMPS: Fillable Frames Sentiments
INK: Dark Chocolate
PAPER: Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Fine Linen patterned papers, Classic Kraft cardstock, Aqua Mist cardstock

This card is made with the Framed Out #4 stamp set. I cut two of the frames with the Framed Out #4 die from the Autumn Abundance patterned paper and stamped some of the frames with Simply Chartreuse ink.

With Gratitude card:
STAMPS: Framed Out #4
INK: True Black, Melon Berry, Simply Chartreuse
PAPER: Autumn Abundance Patterned Paper, Fine Linen Patterned Paper (tan heart and stripe background), white cardstock
DIES: Framed Out #4
OTHER: Snow Day die cuts (orange heart) by Pink Paislee, pearls, seam binding.

This card is made with the new Happy Hydrangeas stamp set and dies. I cut out the hydrangea and saved the negative cut out (white cardstock piece), then stamped the die cut piece with new Winter Wisteria ink and Simply Chartreuse for the stem. I layered the die cut over the negative and popped it up with dimensional adhesive! Love this look!

For a soft background, I chose the Background Basics: Medallion circles and stamped them with new Soft Stone ink. The gray and purples are really pretty together.

Happy Mother's Day card:
STAMPS: Happy Hydrangeas
INK: Winter Wisteria, Soft Stone, True Black, Simply Chartreuse
PAPER: Winter Wisteria, white cardstock
DIES: Happy Hydrangeas die, Simple Circles die (top border)
OTHER: pearl.

Last a fun card with the Heart-2-Heart #4 stamp set. I die cut the phone with the Heart-2-Heart #4 die and used the sentiments and heart from the set also. I wanted to try a tone-on-tone look. (No pun intended!)
I made a little cord from twine and added the hearts to kind of gave the look of the phone ringing!
Hello Sweet Friend card:
STAMPS: Heart-2-Heart #4
INK: Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, Harvest Gold, True Black
PAPER: Aqua Mist Patterned paper, Aqua Mist cardstock, Harvest Gold cardstock
