Hello everyone and welcome back to the fourth and last day of reveals for the May release at Papertrey Ink! Today we are introducing you to United States of America die + Wood Plank Background stamps + Feathered Friends Mini 23 stamps and dies.
Very traditional red, white and blue using patterned paper for the background then layered with a sunburst die, the skinny star frame and the beautiful new USA die!
1. Layer skinny border dies with at least two layers. It makes it easier to adhere to card plus gives dimension.
2. The USA die is so easy to inlay different colors.
STAMPS: Celebrate Freedom
INK: Sapphire (Pinkfresh Studio)
PAPER: We R Memory Keepers "Yankee Doodles"; White, Pure Poppy, Brilliant Blue
DIES: United States of America, Border Bling Skinny Star
OTHER: Moonshine sequins, Oval punches, Ray of Sunshine die
My next card has a more rustic flavor with the twine, wood veneer stars, darker red and blue shades and the torn and sponged edge of the wood plank strip.
1. Use multiple sentiments and arrange in collage form to create a fun background.
2. Tearing and then sponging one side of the wood plank background strip adds a rustic element.
3. I cut out three of the USA dies in different colors and offset them just slightly to add interest and dimension.
STAMPS: Celebrate Freedom, Wood Plank Background
INK: Americana, Enchanted Evening
PAPER: Classic Kraft, Americana, Enchanted Evening, White
DIES: United States of America, Border Bling: Skinny Star
OTHER: Night Sky Background stencil, Blue twine, Wood veneer stars
I love pairing the new Feathered Friend Mini 23 with the USA die and the Wood Plank BG stamp.
1. Add a sentiment as a small tag when your card front seems full.
2. Jute twine, sponging the edges for an aged look and using darker shades of red and blue give a rustic feel to your card.

Last but not least is another card with the eagle but, this time he is at the lake! Lots of color blending on the tropical frame and then stamping of the lake scene from the recently released Scene Everywhere: At the Lake.
Once again, I added jute twine and splattered water drops over the frame area for some texture.
