Maile Belles returns!

Today I get to showcase some of Maile Belle's new products for Papertrey Ink! She's back at designing stamps and dies again after taking some time off with her new baby, and I'm so thrilled with what I have to show you today. You are going to adore her new designs!!

This month she has a few new things available for purchase on Feb. 15th. One is the new Beautiful Butterflies Layers stamps and dies that you stamp over the top of the older Beautiful Butterflies stamps. These add so much detail to the gorgeous butterflies! The butterflies were already one of my favorite stamp sets, but the Layers make them even more detailed and amazing. I cut out several Beautiful Butterflies to layer together from different cardstock colors.

Here you can see a sample of the new Swoosh stamps also on the "Hello". I actually bent up the tails on the hello stamp on my stamping block even more than they already are to make it look more curly, like the butterflies were creating the word in the air! I can't tell you how much I love Swoosh. I love those long swooshie tails.

Hello Darling card:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Swoosh, Beautiful Butterflies, Beautiful Butterflies Layers
INK: True Black,  Orange Zest, Raspberry Fizz, Sweet Blush, Harvest Gold
PAPER: watercolor paper
DIES: Swoosh, Beautiful Butterflies
OTHER: sequins by Pretty Pink Posh, watercolor paints by Reeves.

Here are two more cards with Swoosh stamps and dies. I used the "With Love" stamp repeatedly with different colors of ink.

Next I cut 2 layers of the Swoosh die and glued them together, so it would stand up off the card a tiny bit.

The "Thanks" card is just like the "With Love" card. You could make a card set of these with the 5 different Swoosh sentiments!

Swoosh card set:

STAMPS: Swoosh
INK: True Black, Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz, Sweet Blush, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, New Leaf, Tropical Teal

Here I used the Swoosh die by cutting it from the white cardstock, stamping it and then piecing it back in and layering it over Smokey Shadow cardstock.

The background is stamped with Background Basics: Medallions and here are more Beautiful Butterflies Layers.
