Ink to Paper February Release

First of all, happy heart day to all my blog friends! Besides being Valentine's Day, today is also the last day of reveals of the beautiful February spring/Easter release at Ink to Paper! One of my favorites is the two layered cross stamp/die combo called Risen!

STAMPS: Risen, Just Sentiments: Easter (Ink to Paper)
INK: Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Lovely Lady, Hibiscus Burst, True Black (PTI); Twisted Citron distress ink (Ranger)
PAPER: Green Parakeet, White
DIES: Risen, Sweet Celebrations, Pierced Feature Frames

This quick and easy watercolor background was created by covering an acrylic block with Twisted Citron distress ink, spritzing a couple of times with water, then "stamping" onto cardstock. I also combined two ink colors when I stamped the flowers and leaves. I stamped the lighter pink and green first, then "kissed" the edges of the stamps with the second darker color. I was excited to discover that the die from the Sweet Celebration die set (Ink to Paper) fit this sentiment perfectly!

My second card features a new border die - Border Bling: Chain - and a fabulous background die- Background Bouquet!

STAMPS: Just Sentiments: Easter
INK: Black
PAPER: White, Summer Sunrise (PTI); Watercolor card stock (Ranger)
DIES: Border Bling: Chain, Background Bouquet (Ink to Paper)
OTHER: Water color paints by Pelikan

The floral bouquet is such a fun and easy die to water color! I splattered some purple paint over the base to coordinate with the berries. I love the chain border frame which was easy to adhere by spraying it lightly with Elmer's adhesive.

If you missed my Tuesday reveal post HERE, you can check out the details on this next card using Blossoming Branches and Just Sentiments: Easter which are also part of the February release! 

The release will be available for ordering on Saturday, February 15, at 10:00 PM ET so you will want to head on over to the Ink to Paper store and click away on some new crafty goodness!
