Welcome! Today I have several cards to share with you from Papertrey Ink's February 2013 release, which will be available tonight at 10pm, EST, at Papertrey Ink.
First up is a clean and simple number--not my usual style, but I really liked how this one turned out. I used Maile's Watercolor Wonder "swoosh, pairing Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest, and Simply Chartreuse. I stamped a sentiment from Mini Blooms in True Black, and then die cut and stamped several flowers and leaves from Mini Blooms to embellish the front. The button is a Simply Chartreuse Vintage Button from PTI.
Okay, isn't this bunny the cutest? He's from Melissa's Polka Dot Parade #1. I paired him with some Sweet Blush Gingham and stamped him on a Tag Sale #3 die cut. Ink colors are Soft Stone, Hibiscus Burst, and Simply Chartreuse. The grass stamp is from the Love Lives Here set. It's my go-to grass. :-) I used some Liquid Applique for his tail. This card is 3-1/2" x 5"--a little smaller than usual.
I'm still on a pink and orange kick, as you can see with this Wonderful Words: Hello card! I'm feeling the love for Heather's new series. Patterned papers are from an October Afternoon Woodland Park 8" x 8" pad--love that playful-but-vintage feel that it has. I used PTI's Spiral Notebook Page die, as well as a heart from Heart-2-Heart #11. I used Raspberry Fizz and Orange Zest ink on the card. That little orange flower is from PTI's new Boutique products--it was a perfect fit!
Next is Dawn's Boutique Borders: Mother set. I loved its little frame--elegant and a great size for sentiments too. I paired it with some (I think) Basic Grey paper from a 6" x 6" pad that I just gave the rest of away--unfortunately before writing down the name of the pad. I'm sorry! I used one of the Half and Half dies for the red strip on the front. The inside of this card is shown below.
For the inside I used a sentiment from Boutique Borders: Mother, along with the rose image from Year of Flowers Collection. Inks are Limeade Ice and Berry Sorbet.
Finally, I have a card from Melissa's My Friend, My Mother set--another clean and simple card. I used Royal Velvet, Winter Wisteria, Ripe Avocado, and Simply Chartreuse inks.
I'm working on a few more cards from this release, so I'll be posting more over the next few days. Can't wait to play with Nichole and Erin's Boutique Accessories! I'm headed to South Carolina to visit my parents in a few days, and I'm cutting out felt to take with me and make barrettes while I'm there. Well, that's it for today.
