Release day...

It's that time again! The Papertrey Ink team is going to be sharing the rest of the projects they made for this month's countdown with the new stamp releases. Grab a coffee and sit a spell! :) Lots of baby cards and things to share with you today.

The first card is made with the new Tiny Triangles stamp set and the Cover Plate: Triangles. The triangles all patched together reminded me of a baby quilt.

When I first sat down to make something with the triangles, I was stamping directly onto my practice cardstock. I am not very good at stamping them all straight and getting them just right, so I used the new Cover Plate: Triangles to cut a bunch of triangles out first and then stamped these little pieces. This way you can adhere them onto your card or project and get them straighter, and you can play around with the patterns and move them around as you'd like before deciding on a design!

"Baby" is cut out with the new Wonderful Words: Baby die. The "congratulations" sentiment came from the new Wonderful Words: Baby stamp set.

New Baby card supplies:
STAMPS: Wonderful Words: Baby, Tiny Triangles
INK: Berry Sorbet, Harvest Gold, Sweet Blush, Aqua Mist, Soft Stone, Hawaiian Shores
PAPER: Rustic White
DIES: Wonderful Words: Baby die
OTHER: Pebbles clothespin, seam binding, washi tape from a Studio Calico kit.

On the second card, I used Pure Poppy and Sweet Blush ink stamped directly onto Sweet Blush cardstock. It shows up a little better in real life! I love the tone-on-tone of the inks and matching cardstocks by Papertrey Ink.
I used Fresh Snow (white) ink and just rubbed the ink pad onto the cardstock around my sentiments for a soft look. The stamps are new, and they are Side By Side Sentiments and Pedal Pusher stamp set (thank you).
A fun little banner was created with some chipboard I had on hand and a couple of the Tiny Triangles. The frame was die cut with the Mat Stack 4 dies. I cut the larger one first, then laid the smaller one on top of the cardstock that I had just cut, and I cut it again, leaving this outline that I can use as a frame. Fun technique!

The next one was made with Stitched Sentiments (to spell out "sweet"), the new Boutique Borders: Baby stamps and Ruby Rose (flowers and dots on the butterflies). Oh, and the small "sweet" saying on the butterfly is from Polka Dot Parade #4.

I used the new Butterfly Kisses die and just stamped some fun things on each butterfly, layering them on my card.

Can you guess what I made these photo corners with? These are the florals that go in the basket of the bicycle from Pedal Pushers! "Sweet, little and baby" are from the Wonderful Words: Baby stamps and dies.

I wanted to go more boy-ish on this one, which was made with the new Polka Dot Parade #4 stamps and dies. A bunch of cute teddy bears in many colors steal the show. :)
A paw print background was stamped with this set and the sentiment is from the set also onto Classic Kraft cardstock with Dark Chocolate.

Last but not least, a patriotic card. I used Papertrey Ink's new shimmer cardstock (black) and stamped the fireworks in Fresh Snow ink. I stamped the circle stamp in Pure Poppy, cut it out and layered it with some chipboard stars by Pink Paislee from their Artisan line. The stars were rubbed with Hawaiian Shores ink to add some color.

The star border was die cut with Aqua Mist cardstock. I stamped some of the stars in red at the bottom. If you want a brighter look to the background, you could emboss the fireworks with white embossing powder as well.
