Welcome! It's Papertrey Ink June Release time, so I have several projects to share with you today. Since most of the sets used in this post are from the June release, they will be available tonight at 10pm, EST, at Papertrey Ink. All of the new products used in this post can be seen HERE. I have listed all supplies under each project.
Oh, my goodness. . . I had FUN with Happy Hexagons! The stamps are slightly larger than the cut shapes, so it is easy to stamp and cover the entire hexagon; you don't have to spend time trying to align it just right--very helpful if you are alignment-challenged. ;-) We Go Together is cheerful and sweet as well.

How about a tiny birthday set? I loved the little banners in Heart-2-Heart #5. I thought I would stick with possible boy colors for this card since I've been on such a pink kick lately.

Lovely Layers is elegant. I paired it with some Guidelines 1 cardstock from my stash to make it simple to stamp a repeating pattern for the background, then used its coordinating dies to create just one focal image from the same background shapes.

I kept my Hello Sunshine card clean and simple, using a ROYGBIV rainbow of colors for the sun's rays. It's not my typical card, but it's cheery for sure! ;-) For the sun I had coated the harvest gold cardstock in glitter. My glitter had a little bit of iridescent color in it, so it didn't look quite right. I simply airbrushed over the glittery surface with a Copic YR35 to solve that little problem

I've been determined to experiment more with color schemes, so I've been taking notes any time I see a color scheme that I don't usually use and jotting it down on a Desktop File: Inspiration card. This was one of them. (LOVE that Desktop File: Inspiration set too!)
