Release day...

Today is the day all of the March goodies go up for sale at Papertrey Ink. Do you want to see what's new this month? This first card features the new Rosie Posie Step 2 stamps. It is an addition to Rosie Posie and adds shading over the flowers, which really looks gorgeous! I used the big leafy swirl from Turning a New Leaf.

A doily folded over the top, some twine and a few punched butterflies adds some dimension! The sentiment is from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday.

STAMPS: Turning a New Leaf, Stylish Sentiments: Birthday
INK: Soft Stone, True Black, Sweet Blush, Pure Poppy

Next, I used the new Wonderful Words: Birthday stamp set and dies. I also added the bubbles from the Birthday Style stamp set. I made the stripe patterned paper myself with the older Super Stripes stamp set! I stamped 2 lines of stripes with Super Stripes stamps to emulate a patterned paper from Crate Paper's On Trend collection that I have in my stash!

The Blooming Spring card uses the floral sprigs and sentiment from the new Spring Hills set with Rosie Posie and Rosie Posie Step 2 (new this month) stamp sets.

The color palette is Soft Stone, Dark Chocolate, Fine Linen and Sweet Blush inks. I will be using this palette again! Loved it.

A quick birthday card was made here with Boutique Style: Birthday stamps and dies, Birthday Style stamps and dies and the Background Basics: Birthday stamps. See the patterned paper at the top? That is the one I was trying to emulate when I made my own stamped stripe paper on the above birthday card.
I popped up the frame and candles.

On the Happy Hello card, I stamped some flowers from the Polka Dot Parade #2 stamp set down the card.

I also added some large leaves in Sweet Blush with the older Turning a New Leaf stamp set.

Next up is Hello Foxy. What a cute set! I stamped the fox on Lavender Moon cardstock with white and embossed her and then I stamped her again on Sweet Blush Pattered Paper and cut out parts to add over the top of the plain one. Added a die cut butterfly and heart and stamping from the Modern Wood Mats stamp set.

Last is Comfort Food Additions. These are sayings that go with the older Comfort Food set. I started with a white card base that I had on hand from AC Moore and stamped the bowls from Comfort Foods in all different colors, the spoons in Soft Stone and punched out the "ice cream scoops" from cardstock and patterned paper. I used the Upper Script Alpha dies to cut out the word "party". Ice Cream sentiment is from Comfort Food Additions.
