Introducing Phrase Play #7 and Blanket Stitch Buttons...

The Papertrey Ink countdown for August has begun! We are previewing some of the new products coming out this month. Today I made a few things with the new Phrase Play #7 stamps and coordinating die! These will be available for purchase on August 15th at 10pm EST.

First up, I made some little place card holders for the Thanksgiving table. Instead of names tucked into the clothespins, I die cut leaves out of cork with Leaf Prints dies and added a "thankful" cut with the Phrase Play #7 die. I also used the Phrase Play #7 stamps to stamp the bottom "you".
Here is a tip when using the cork sheets: when you die cut something from the cork sheet, it tends to want to roll up from being rolled up on the sheet. So I die cut another matching leaf from Classic Kraft cardstock to put behind the cork leaf to keep it nice and straight. The cork is sticky, so you just peel and stick it to the cardstock leaf.

Gold twine was wrapped around the front of the clothespins and a faux acorn found at the craft store tucked in.

The "for" was actually stamped with one of the Stamp-a-Faire sets...the 1940's set. But you could use the "for" from the Phrase Play die...and I am positive there is the word "for" in many, many other sets also!



Thankful Clothespins:

STAMPS: Phrase Play #7, Stamp-a-Faire 1940's
INK: Classic Kraft
PAPER: cork
DIES: Phrase Play #7, Leaf Prints

Next up is a new Gable Box die coming out this month decorated with the Phrase Play #7 stamps and dies! The box was easily put together, I just cut two of the Gable Box dies (a front and a back), folded and glued the flaps together. Then I used the new Blanket Stitch Button die and cut 2 buttons from Classic Kraft felt. I put them back-to-back and blanket stitched them together around the edges with a coral floss. This created a puffy look to the felt buttons. I love peach and gold with dark brown right now! It's more of a soft, fresh look to typical Thanksgiving colors. 
These little boxes are about 3 1/2" x 2" when assembled, and they'd be so cute on the Thanksgiving table as little treat boxes for your guests. I can see the table decorated with white pumpkins as well. (I must go get some white pumpkins!) Wish I would have had some for my photos!



Thankful for You Decorated Gable Box:

Here is a card made with the Phrase Play #7 stamps and dies and the Blanket Stitch Button die.

I trimmed out 3 of these Phrase Play #7 dies, two cream and one in Classic Kraft, then I replaced the "thankful" word with the kraft word and overlapped the leaves from the die. A Blanket Stitch Button looks cute over the top. Love these! I can see them made from chipboard and painted also...to make them rustic looking, oh...that would be so cute.
Then a tiny strip of polkadot washi tape added underneath the stamped sentiment at the bottom adds a touch of color. Guess where I found this washi tape? I was hanging out with a friend last weekend in Denver, and she wanted to pop into Crate and Barrel at the Flat Irons mall. I saw a little bowl of washi tape there! I had no idea Crate and Barrel would have washi! Fun surprise! It's the little things in life. :)

And one last card. This time I really wanted to focus on those gorgeous Blanket Stitch Buttons, so I used the Edgers #4 die to cut a little scallop border to highlight the felt buttons.
The background is stamped with Phrase Play #7 stamps and the "thankful" and leaves were cut with the Phrase Play #7 dies.

Yesterday, when I walked by some little clothespins at Michael's, I thought how I cannot wait for that trend to be over. You pushed that thought completely out of my head with your place card holders, Danielle. They are a wonderful combination of rustic and elegant that end up being just charming.

All of your other projects are equally creative. I always appreciate seeing your take on products and reading the extra tips you pass along in your post.

Kim S said...

I am IN LOVE with everything you have made. My Phrase Play #7 should be here today and I am so excited to play. Your "thankful" clothespins will definitely be copied and on my Thanksgiving table. For some reason, I didn't order the blanket stitch button die, but am clearly going to have remedy that soon! Thank you for the inspiration!
