Release Day: January...

There will be lots of "partying" on my blog today while I share some new products coming out this month at Papertrey Ink! ;) Lots of birthday goodies this month! Everything is available tonight at 10pm EST! First up is Phrase Play #12 stamps and dies.
Using watercolor pencils, I watercolored a background. (Used the same technique that I did on the rainbow hugs card HERE.) When dry, I cut the Phrase Play #12 die out of it. I also cut another one from gold cardstock and layered it over the top. Super easy. Stamped the sentiment when dry.
Thanks For Coming To My Party card:

STAMPS: Phrase Play #12
INK: Pure Poppy
PAPER: watercolor paper, white cardstock, gold cardstock
DIES: Phrase Play #12

Next is Keep It Simple: Belated Birthday. I used the Phrase Play #12 die again with it. I love, love polka dots. Thought I'd try a more masculine color palette this time.
I used Polka Dot Basics III to stamp the yellow, teal and gray dots. Then added a gold die cut over the top. I made my own striped paper with Background Basics: Super Stripes.

So...polka dots are my thing! But I love stripes too. And today I love big bold black ones! This one is stamped with Happy Notes (flowers and sentiment) and Background Basics: Super Stripes.

More stripes, I couldn't resist. I used Background Basics: Super Stripes to create a panel for the middle and the new Hey, Cupcake stamps and dies.
 "Party" is cut from the new Party Trio dies in Pure Poppy cardstock and layered over the top.

Here is Cable Gram. Such a cool, detailed die! I embossed the die in the background and used the stamps from Cable Gram for my sentiment.
So in love with these fonts! 
To emboss with this die, I simply add 2 pieces of cardstock to the die instead of one, and I take my shim out before running it through the Cuttlebug. I always usually keep my shim in, but for embossing, I remove it. That's it! Works great.
I Just Love You card:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Cable Gram, Polka Dot Basics III
INK: Sweet Blush, Pure Poppy, True Black
PAPER: White
DIES: Cable Gram
OTHER: none.
______

On this one, I used the new 2015 Birthday Tags and Stitched Swirls, along with Polka Dot Basics III again.
The butterfly is cut from Beautiful Butterflies, then stamped with the dots and sentiment. I cut the holes with Stitched Swirls dies and used the Stitched Swirls stamps to fill it in. Doesn't it look like stitching? To fit with the country/handmade sort of theme, I used some patterned papers from Simple Stories and Studio Calico to add lots of color in the background.
