Release day - August.

It's the 15th again, and that means the Papertrey Ink team is allowed to share what we've been working on for the month of August! First, meet the new Heart-2-Heart #7 stamp set.
I've used the leaves two different ways here - once as rows, and then I stamped them front to front to create little circles down the second card. The cute flower die is the Heart-2-Heart #7 die. Simple to layer and pull up the edges of the flower for a bit of dimension.

Heart-2-Heart #7 Cards:
STAMPS: Heart-2-Heart #7
INK: Spring Moss, Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold
PAPER: white and Harvest Gold cardstock, Pure Poppy Pattern Pack
DIES: Heart-2-Heart #7 (flower), Heart-2-Heart #3 (heart)
OTHER: pearls by Melissa Frances, 2" circle punch by Fiskars.

Next, meet the Framed Out #7 stamps and dies.
I popped up the pretty frame and added a flower from the Heart-2-Heart #7 in felt. I decided to try some different colors of stamping on the Spring Moss cardstock - used Spring Moss, Pure Poppy and True Black.

You're the Best card:
STAMPS: Framed Out #7, Background Basics: Houndstooth, Sunflower Bouquet, Think Big Favorites #19
INK: Spring Moss, Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist, True Black inks
PAPER: Spring Moss cardstock, Pure Poppy Pattern Pack, script paper is by Pink Paislee
DIES: Framed Out #7, Heart-2-Heart #7
OTHER: felt, Ripe Avocado button, Pure Poppy ribbon, pearl by Melissa Frances.

Here I've used the new Think Big Favorites #19 stamps and the Counting My Blessings dies, as well as Background Basics: Herringbone!

On the first card, I cut several "thankfuls" and layered them. The white ones are so pretty on white cardstock! This tone-on-tone look could be done with any color!
On this card, I alternated the look of the smaller herringbone stamp and left room in the center for the large word. This way the word really stands out.
I layered some leaves from the Autumn Acorns dies and hung a little Tiny Tags heart from the word with twine.
So in love with this card!
Thankful card set:
STAMPS: Background Basics: Herringbone, Think Big Favorites #19
INK: Summer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate
PAPER: white, Fine Linen Pattern Pack, Pure Poppy Pattern Pack, Dark Chocolate Pattern Pack
DIES: Tiny Tags, Counting My Blessings, Autumn Acorrns
OTHER: Dark Chocolate button, rustic twine, Pure Poppy ribbon.

Here is a more modern looking one with the Thanks All Ways stamps and the Cover Plate: Quatrefoil die. I cut a quatrefoil shape, placed it on my card and glued down the pieces, then removed the outer piece. I only used half of the pieces for a slanted look.
Thanks for All You Do card:
STAMPS: Thanks All Ways
INK: Fresh Snow
PAPER: Smokey Shadow cardstock, Ripe Avocado cardstock, white, Autumn Abundance patterned paper
DIES: Cover Plate Quatrefoil die
OTHER: white embossing powder, My Mind's Eye brad.

"Just a Note" features Sunflower Bouquet. I used chalks to give the sunflowers and vase a soft look.

The triangles of patterned paper remind me of a little tablecloth.

Just a Note card:
STAMPS: Background Basics: Newsprint, Background Basics: Houndstooth, Sunflower Bouquet
INK: Harvest Gold, Classic Kraft, Soft Stone, True Black
PAPER: White cardstock, Simply Chartreuse Pattern Pack
DIES: Sunflower Bouquet
OTHER: Chalks, Ripe Avocado ribbon, Little Yellow Bicycle pin.

"Thanks for coming to my party" uses the cupcake from Foodie Fun and sentiments from Thanks All Ways, and they are just quickly stamped onto a graph paper by Crate Paper. Easy! I punched some red polkadot paper for the cherries on top.

Thanks for Coming to My Party card:
STAMPS: Foodie Fun, Thanks All Ways
INK: Summer Sunrise, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, Sweet Blush, Ripe Avocado
PAPER: Aqua Mist, Harvest Gold
DIES: corner rounder
OTHER: twine by the Twinery, red paper, graph paper by Crate Paper.

Last, something different - a little folk art looking framed piece with the Autumn Hills stamps (tree and sentiment). I cut some leaves with the older Autumn Acorns dies with felt and wrapped them around a spool with rustic twine. The patchwork feel of the hexagons to me really went with the rustic, cozy feel of the Autumn Hills stamps!

Bountiful Blessings Frame:
STAMPS: Autumn Hills, Happy Hexagons, Background Basics: Houndstooth
INK: Classic Kraft, True Black, Pure Poppy, Spring Moss
PAPER: Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss, Classic Kraft cardstock, Summer Sunrise Pattern Pack
DIES: Autumn Acorns, Happy Hexagons, Teacher's Apple
OTHER: black paper - Crate Paper, ruler paper - Echo Park, Pure Poppy button, rustic twine, Dark Chocolate button, Fine Linen felt, twine spool, Maya Road pin, frame - Target.

That's it for me. All products will be available at 10 pm EST tonight at! Let me know if you have any questions about these projects, I'll be happy to answer them. Have a good day!

All your projects are wow...but I especially like the framed picture. I would have never thought to put the sentiment together with the trees and ruler. I also love the little spool with the hexagons and felt leaves!

Kristii said...

I just love all of your projects!!! You totally have me thinking outside of my little box!! Thank you so much for all your inspiration!! You totally rocked the release!

June K said...

I love all your cards. I don't know which one is my favorite. I like what you did on your first card with the leaves in a circle - great design. Love the thankful, thankful, thankful card. I'll have to try that. And I like how you added a polka dot embellishment on your cupcakes on your last card. It's nice and flat and easy to mail. As I said, love them all. Thanks for the many inspirations.

Hi Danielle,
That quatrefoil card on the dark cardstock is stunning. The flower fusion card is so sweet also. I love what you did with the new release. I also noticed on one of your previous posts that you went to a pumpkin patch in Schuylerville NY. My brother in law and his family live there and they LOVE that area. It's a small crafting world we live in, isn't it.
