PTI February Release Day #1


It's time for reveals of the February release at Papertrey Ink! You will love all the spring goodness! Today we are introducing you to Vase Collection 15 stamps and dies + Love to Layer: Beautiful Brackets dies + Psalm Reflections: February stamps and dies + Ornate Swirls Hot Foil Plate. 

I wanted to create the look of a tin bucket, so went with the new distress color - Lost Shadow - along with Hickory Smoke. The new bracket die is really so pretty with the pierced and open design along the edges!
The base was smooshed with Spun Sugar and Kitsch Flamingo distress inks then stenciled with Lost Shadow using the A Little Sketchy stencil.

STAMPS: Vase Collection 15.
INK: Limeade Ice, Simply Chartreuse; Lost Shadow, Hickory Smoke, Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo distress inks; Versafine Clair Nocturne.
PAPER: White; Patterned paper (Carta Bella).
DIES: Love to Layer: Beautiful Bracket, Vase Collection 15.
OTHER: A Little Sketchy stencil; Banner flag die; Twine.

I created two cards using the new Psalm Reflections: February die. It fits perfectly with the coordinating die! 

There is a gorgeous new hot foil plate and I went with a matte white foil for the background.

1. Pop up the focal point sentiment with foam tape to add dimension. 
2. Cut all the flowers and leaves from Bristol Smooth Surface paper then color blend with distress inks.
3. Add white splatters (I used Gouache paint) for another element of interest and dimension.

INK: Versafine Clair Nocturne; Variety of distress inks.
PAPER: Soft Stone, White.
DIES: Psalm Reflections: February, Into the Blooms: Cherry Blossoms.

Next up is a card with 3 layers as the background: stitched white rectangle, smaller stitched plaid rectangle then a twig frame in white.

Take your flowers up a notch and add Crystal Stickles lightly for some added pizzazz!

Wonderful cards, Wanda!
Love all the new products.
Wish I was able to do the foiling, maybe they could make a stamp with that design??
Everything looks great.
Take care and have yourself a wonderful day.
