It's the 15th, and you know what that means! The Papertrey Ink team gets to show you the rest of the new things they have made with the new stamp sets for March!

This card is made with the new Framed Out #2 stamps and die.
I stamped two of the frames, and then used felt to cut out the red frame. Love how easy it is to cut felt with these dies and how the felt adds one more texture! I cut up one of the star borders to add a design to one of the frames.
A Big Congrats card:
Stamps: Framed Out #2, Tremendous Treats: Birthday (eat cake)
Ink: Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy
Paper: white cardstock, Aqua Mist Pattern Pack
Dies: Super Stars Borders, Framed Out #2
Other: felt by PTI - Aqua Mist and Pure Poppy, PTI twine.

Next up is Back Pocket Basics. I couldn't help but make a "pocket" card to go with the saying!
I brushed the Vintage Cream ink pad over the white cardstock to soften it a bit.
Pocketful of Tweet Birthday Wishes card:
Stamps: Back Pocket Basics
Ink: Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, Blueberry Sky, Harvest Gold, Pure Poppy, Melon Berry, Classic Kraft
Paper: white and Pure Poppy cardstock, patterns by My Mind's Eye
Dies: Back Pocket Basics
Other: brads, PTI ribbon, shipping tag.

This set is called Little Bitty Bird Additions.

I made a shaped card with the Mega Mat Stack 1 die and cut out the little fence from the bird set. Oh, see the light brown fence on the pink paper? That is the new Background Basics: Wrought Iron set. I thought it would make a cute fence to go with my gate.
Let Your Heart Sing card:
Stamps: Little Bitty Bird Additions, Background Basics: Wrought Iron
Ink: Classic Kraft, True Black, Pure Poppy
Paper: Lilybee Designs
Dies: Mega Mat Stack 1, Mat Stack1
Other: Twinery twine.

This next card is just a silly, fun, kiddo card. This monkey from the Tremendous Treats: Birthday set cracked me up and I HAD to try him out! I stamped him on kraft and cut him out.
Please excuse my messy stitching. My machine messed up and I didn't have time to start all over with this one!
Hey, Party Animal card:
Stamps: Tremendous Treats: Birthday
Ink: Dark Chocolate, True Black
Paper: Lilybee Designs (gray), kraft cardstock, Dark Chocolate Pattern Pack by PTI
Dies: Super Stars Borders
Other: Heidi Swapp tape, ribbon by PTI.

Here the tie from the World's Greatest set makes an awesome fish! :) My father-in-law is a great fisherman and grandpa, so this one's for him...

I made my own little fishing pole with patterned paper and twine. To create the waves, I simply used a circle punch and punched along the edge randomly.

World's Greatest Grandpa card:
Stamps: World's Greatest
Ink: New Leaf, True Black
Paper: cardstock by PTI - Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, and Simply Chartreuse, Dark Chocolate Pattern Pack and Aqua Mist Pattern Pack by PTI, Lilybee Designs (green and big dot)
Dies: Super Stars Borders
Other: Twinery twine, circle punch.

A super simple card stamped with the World's Greatest set again.... I almost threw this one away, but I thought maybe someone out there could get some inspiration from it.
World's Greatest Dad:
Stamps: World's Greatest
Ink: True Black, Hawaiian Shores, New Leaf
Paper: white cardstock
Dies: none
Other: none

And last, but not least On The Links. This one will be for my dad soon! He loves golf!

I made my own little flag from patterned paper and bent it a bit for dimension.

Enjoy Your Retirement card:
Stamps: On the Links
Ink: New Leaf, True Black, Hawaiian Shores
Paper: white cardstock, Lilybee Designs
Dies: none
Other: small circle punch.

I love these cards, woman! Especially the one you were going to throw away. I really LOVE white on white layering. You, Maille, Nichole, and Jessica made me a white on white layer girl. I never would have thought about it without seeing your amazing creations. LOVE IT.
