Welcome to day #3 of reveals at Ink to Paper for their June release which will go live on the 15th at 10pm EST. Today, we are introducing you to Vintage Travel Suitcase die + Vintage Suitcase stamp set + Walk With Me stamp set and dies + Just Sentiments: Wish You Were Here stamp set. Before I get to the details of my Featured Project cards, I will post this sweet little suitcase box created with a new die and a new stamp set.
I used some textured heavy weight patterned paper (retired from Stampin' Up) for the box then added the accents in Dark Chocolate card stock.
I curved the handle and attached it with tiny copper brads. The straps and corner pieces were just glued in place. These would make adorable favor boxes for a travel-themed party! The tag could be adhered to the side of the box with foam tape or tied to the handle.
STAMPS: Vintage Suitcase.
INK: Cocoa Bean.
PAPER: Dark Chocolate, Rustic Cream; Patterned 12x12 paper.
DIES: Vintage Travel Suitcase.
OTHER: Ribbon, Twine, Copper brads.
My first card is clean and simple. The water colored panel is a leftover center piece from a previously cut frame die you will see in tomorrow's post. Two of the layers are popped with foam tape. I took cues from the water color panel for my ink choices with the sandals. I'm noticing in the photos that the black twine is mighty hairy - lol!
STAMPS: Walk With Me.
INK: Berry Sorbet, True Black; Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint distress inks.
PAPER: Bristol Smooth Surface; Soft Stone, Weathervane, Pale Peony.
DIES: Walk With Me, Mix & Mat: Postal die; Stitched Circle.
OTHER: Black twine.
This is my fave of the 3 cards using these shoe images. I used lots of texture with adding layers that are pierced, faux stitched or dry embossed with a pattern. These sidewalk chalk flowers will be introduced tomorrow but I sneaked some of them onto this card.
Some helpful tips are to angle your panels for a fun layout. I used a black gel pen to go over the stamped flower centers to make them a brighter black color.

Last but not least is a mini slimline card. I used this beautiful patterned paper from PTI's Share Your Heart Collection. A trio of shoes and and sentiment and this was a quick and easy card to put together!
1. Layering the striped paper over black helps the design tie in with the black sentiment.
2. White ink or white gel pen on the shoe laces helps to define it.
