Round Repeats...

We're back with another Papertrey Ink group blog post to share peeks of a new stamp set called Round Repeats. You'll have so much fun with this one, I promise you! There are several stamps in this set, just waiting for your creativity to be unleashed. :)

On the first card, I kept it simple and used the stamps to create a fun border around the sentiment. Very simple and quick card, one layer. Well, technically it's a two layer with the card front added to the base. :)

I started with the Raspberry Fizz ink in the corners, then added the Summer Sunrise ones. Last, Sweet Blush ink fills in the centers. I used a Boutique Borders: Thanks sentiment and frame.

Sending Sincere Thanks card:
STAMPS: Round Repeats, Boutique Borders: Thanks
INK: Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, Sweet Blush, True Black
PAPER: White, Harvest Gold
DIES: none
OTHER: none.


After making a border, I wanted to try stamping these Round Repeats in a pattern to create a focal point. I made a flower with them by stamping them 4 times in a circle with Summer Sunrise ink. I popped the finished flower up over two Bountiful Banner die cuts. (I made two die banner cuts, one for each side of the flower in Raspberry Fizz ink, something different than the typical green leaves!) 
I used Background Basics: Text Style in Fresh Snow ink on Classic Kraft cardstock. A sentiment finishes it off from the new Bigger Blooms stamp set!

I was out of brown cardstock, so I found a chocolate colored tag in my stash from Creative Cafe (remember them?) and trimmed it down to fit with my card.

You're Sweet card:
STAMPS: Round Repeats, Background Basics: Text, Bountiful Banners, Bigger Bloosm (sentiment)
INK: Fresh Snow, Dark Chocolate, Summer Sunrise, Raspberry Fizz, Pure Poppy
PAPER: Classic Kraft, Harvest Gold
DIES: Bountiful Banners
OTHER: tag from my stash from Creative Cafe, twine.


Last, I stamped white on white and heat embossed the Round Repeats flowers that I made. After cool, I inked over them with a Vintage Cream ink to set them off slightly from the white cardstock. They would work as snowflakes as well on a holiday card, but I decided to go with a birthday card instead this time. I made another large flower with another one of the Round Repeats with Hawaiian Shores ink, cut it out and added a Bountiful Banner over the top. Sentiment is from the new Bigger Blooms.

If you used a more elegant flower and color scheme, instead of a playful look like I have here, this would make a nice wedding card also with the embossed background.
Best Day Ever card:
STAMPS: Round Repeats, Bountiful Banners, Bigger Blooms
INK: Hawaiian Shores, Raspberry Fizz, Vintage Cream
PAPER: white, Harvest Gold, Aqua Mist
DIES: Bountiful Banners
OTHER: butterfly punch, seam binding, white embossing powder, corner rounder.
