Introducing Noted...

The Papertrey Ink countdown for March is underway, and this is when we get to show you little sneak peeks of the new products coming out this month on March 15th at 10pm EST! Today I'm previewing the new Noted stamps and dies. You can see more about this set at Nichole's blog today.

The first card I made incorporates the new Noted stamps and dies with the new Brushed Blooms stamps and dies!
To create the watercolored chevrons, I used the big chevron stamp in Noted and brushed black watercolor paint (mixed with a lot of water to make gray) onto the stamp with my paintbrush, then stamped it onto watercolor paper. I love the soft look it gives the chevrons!

After stamping, you'll have a few extra blobs of water on your paper like you see below. Blot the extra paint off with a paper towel to get a softer look and remove those big drips.

After blotting the excess, the paint will dry a little bit lighter. The more water you mix with the black, the lighter gray color you'll get.

The Brushed Blooms flower is die cut from Linen Cardstock. I dipped the large flower stamp into Sweet Blush ink and then Melon Berry ink. The leaves were dipped in Spring Moss ink and then Ripe Avocado ink on the edges. Then I added a tiny bit of water to blend the ink on the leaves. Gives it a watercolor look that goes well with the background. I was inspired by this photo.

Next, I've stamped the arrows from Noted with Enchanted Evening, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry and Sweet Blush inks, inspired by this photo.

The hello was die cut 3 times and stacked together for a raised look on the word.
Last, I stamped a little heart at the bottom, added some sequins, seam binding and a little strip of Melon Berry patterned paper from Papertrey Ink at the top.

The last card was very quick and easy.

I used Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise and Harvest Gold ink colors and matching cardstocks.

Kathy Mc said...

Your first card with the subtle chevrons behind your watercolored blooms looks like a piece of art that should be framed. Clever idea stamping arrows in many colors for the backdrop of your sweet "stacked" hello. I "Noted" for future CASEing your brightly-colored die-cut hellos down the front of your last card. Great previews, Danielle!

Kathy Krug said...

Beautiful cards. Love how you stacked the hello and used the little heart. fun card.

Virginia L. said...
