Introducing Super Swoosh dies and Black & White All Over papers...

Maile Belles is back this month with some FUN new products coming out at Papertrey Ink! She has super sized the Swoosh dies and called them Super Swoosh! They are new and improved with a larger size and longer tails, which would be perfect for layouts, as they stretch over 8" long! And she's developed this super cool Black &White All Over Paper Pad, which is perfectly sized for A2 sized cards. You can add your own pops of colors to these papers with stamps, paints, markers, pencils or whatever else you can dream up! So versatile!
Here I used two of the background papers from the Black & White All Over paper pad. I tucked a stripe paper behind the big XO paper. To add just a tiny bit of color to the front, I added a flower from Quilted: Spring stamps and dies. I cut the "with love" Super Swoosh die out of Luxe Gold Adhesive Paper.

I really like how the gold plays off the black!

Next I used two more of the papers from Black & White All Over paper pad - the tiny dots and the frames. I watercolored a couple of papers with the Loew Watercolor paints from Papertrey Ink. I love the bright colors in this set! My other watercolor set doesn't have the hot pinks and some of the other colors I really like. These are very vibrant. The watercolor papers were cut to fit inside the frame.

After the watercolor paint was dry, I used the Super Swoosh "hello" die to cut out the teal paper. I removed the teal hello that I cut out and instead added a gold one to tuck into the negative cut. At the top, underneath the watercolor paper, I added the tiny dot paper. "Just thinking of you" was stamped with Mat Stack 2 stamp set with Tropical Teal ink.

Then of course I had to make another one with hot pink and the "thanks" Super Swoosh die. "You've been so thoughtful" is stamped with Mat Stack 5 stamps. I can see using ALL five of the Super Swoosh dies to make a cute matching card set.

Last is a birthday card with the Super Swoosh "birthday" die and the balloon paper from the Black & White All Over Paper Pad. To add color, I simply painted the balloons with watercolors again, trying not to use too much water. The paper did warp a bit, but with a lot of adhesive, you can stick it down pretty good to the card base to get rid of the bumps. Or you can color the paper with Copic markers, colored pencils, etc. instead of watercolors. (I am Copic "challenged" and don't have many colors, so I opted for the paints this time!)

Some enamel dots finish the card and even a little bit more color. The "birthday" is the balloon tail, in case you were wondering. My 9 year old didn't get it. She asked "Why is it sideways, mom?!" :)

These new dies and papers will be available April 15th at 10pm EST at Papertrey Ink! Visit Nichole's blog to see more sneak peeks today!
