There is so much to be completely in love with this November with Papertrey Ink. If you haven't noticed, thee is a theme going on. It's all about fabric crafts and all the love and coziness they impart to a home and the heart. I've certainly fallen under the spell of these new sets. Hoping you will as well.
First up, perhaps what is my favorite card that I've created for this release using the new Stitched Sentiments, Buttoned Up, and Hanging By a Thread (all available on November 15h). I was inspired by the whole Purl Soho vibe to create this homey, yet graphic take on a quilt. Finally...FINALLY...we have enough colors of patterned paper in the PTI collection to create this rainbow look using the Hello Sunshine dies for precision cutting. Really was a cinch. And since the dies cut two "sunrays", I already have cuts to make another card. LOVE it.
Here's a close up photo where you can see all the elements layered together. The stitched "You" is from the new Stitched Sentiments and the "are pretty amazing" is from the previously released Simply You set. All of the sentiments in Simply You and All About You can be teamed up with this stitched "You" for even more looks.
The thread card stamp (from the new Hanging By a Thread) was a surprise to me when I stamped it for the first time. I had no idea there was a Downton Abbey reference! Thrilled with this.
But what really made me squeal with delight was the embroidery hoop that is included in "Stitched Sentiments". A world of possibilities with this particular stamp and die. I have admired the wall hangings folks have been doing with hoops and the creative ways they've used them--using everything cross stitch to be inside of them. And so, that's exactly where I went with it--a modern take on the hoop.
For my "fabric" I cut a circle of chevron patterned paper from the Funky Town pack. I cut a heart out of Raspberry Fizz felt and a flower out of Hawaiian Shores (using the Flipping Out die) and added them as my focal point. The sentiment is actually from the new Background Basics: Inspiration set. I stamped a background strip in Ripe Avocado and cut out the words I wanted to use. Instant sentiment.
I've got one final card for you today using Party Poppers. I wanted to use the elements for something other than poppers. I can't believe I didn't see this before, but the ripped popper die makes really good "washi tape". If you happen to pick up the new Sentiment Signs, you could use this card idea for any of the sentiments included in the set. Super easy. And how about versatile?
That's it for me tonight. One more day to go before all these new sets, dies, and patterned papers are released at Papertrey Ink. Take a few minutes today to enjoy more inspiration using the same products at the following blogs:
