June Release Projects

It's time for the Papertrey Ink June Release Wrap-Up. Here's the rest of my projects not included in the two group posts this month.

Boutique Borders: Thanks. Sweet little frame imagined award-ribbon style. The background pattern was created using two of the small stamps from the new "Round Repeats" as available this month.

When I created this card, I was reminded by a thread on the forum about our "most indispensable dies". I made a mental note to say something about how much I use the little pinked circle from Ad Sense. I must have been thinking too hard on the topic, because I promptly lost it as soon as I was done using it. Cross your fingers that I find this little workhorse soon.

Teacher Tickets and Antique Alphabet. More fun with the Cover Plate: Horizontal Chevron. It was fun to see what I could use to fit in the open spaces.

Wonderful Words: Teacher. The large die/stamp combo is also a fun substitute (pun intended!) for the smaller sized "teacher" in "Teacher's Apple". I thought this particular sentiment worked in nicely with this month's release of the Garden Variety II dies. Also, I really like the subtle contrast between Terracotta Tile cardstock and the Canyon Clay patterned paper pack. 

Polka Dot Parade: #5. The sentiment "don't worry, be happy" is included in the new stamp set. Selectively add an "e" to the word "be", and you got a pun worthy sentiment worthy of the new Honey Bee dies.

Thinking of You. A fun ombre treatment with that one particular strip stamp. And what is better than one ombre? Three ombres!

Bigger Blooms. A bold statement of Royal Velvet flowers from both "Mini Blooms" and "Bigger Blooms" against Raspberry Fizz cardstock. A few leaves/flowers are die cut and popped up on dimensional adhesive. I love the look of "BB: Retro" heat embossed over the Wonderful Words: Hello die.

And that's it from this camp! Check out what the other ladies have been up too. If any of us tickle your fancy on any of the new product, remember it is available on June 15th at www.papertreyink for purchase. Until next month....
