PTI April Reveal Day #4


Hi crafty friends! It's the fourth and final day of reveals of the April release at Papertrey Ink with release day happening on Tuesday, April 25, at 10pm EST. Today, we are introducing you to Easy Bouquet + Cornered: Baroque + Cover Plate: Exquisite die + Just Sentiments: In Motion stamps. Let's get started...

First, I created a card using the baroque corner dies and the new bouquet stamp set. I hadn't used my Zig brush markers in a long time, so I stamped with black pigment ink and then clear embossed the image. It makes it so much easier to stay inside the lines when you "color". 

I love how the pop of colors in the florals shows up against the black and white base!

STAMPS: Easy Bouquet.
INK: Versafine Clair Nocturne pigment ink.
PAPER: True Black, White, Bristol Smooth Surface.
DIES: Cornered: Baroque, Easy Bouquet, Love to Layer: Ovals.
OTHER: Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers; Sentiment Suite Basics die; Clear embossing powder.

Next up is a card giving a masculine look to the exquisite die. I layered the cover plate die over a kraft corrugated panel that has some distress inks blended onto it. I took a cue from the sentiment and added wood veneer stars for embellishment.

I sponged the edges of the ripped banner die and stamped the sentiment using Dark Chocolate ink. I layered two of the skinny diagonal frames for more stability and dimension.

STAMPS: Just Sentiments: In Motion, Tuck It: Dad.
INK: Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers distress inks; White pigment; Harvest Gold, Aqua Mist, Tropical Teal, Dark Chocolate, Pure Poppy, Fine Linen, Classic Kraft, Honey Nut, Enchanted Evening, Weathervane, Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart, Orange Zest; Rocky Slope, Metropolis.
PAPER: Corrugated kraft; Classic Kraft, Vintage Cream.
DIES: Cover Plate: Exquisite; Skinny Frames: Diagonal Border; Tuck It: Dad; Ripped Banners.
OTHER: Veneer wood stars.

This is probably my fave card I created for this release! The base layer is watercolor paper sprayed with pink/green/orange distress spray stains.

The florals were all cut from Bristol Smooth Surface paper, ink blended with brushes then splattered with water after the ink had dried.

STAMPS: Just Sentiments: In Motion.
INK: Sweet Blush, Lovely Lady, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Lemon Tart, Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise, Limeade Ice, New Leaf, Ocean Tides; Versafine Claire Nocturne; Distress spray stains.
PAPER: Ranger watercolor; Bristol Smooth Surface; White.
DIES: Psalm Reflections April, Cover Plate: Exquisite.

The tiny sentiment stamp set has some incredible sentiments and I fell in love with this little but mighty few words of encouragement! It fits perfectly in layered circle dies on this stenciled background.

STAMPS: Just Sentiments: In Motion.
INK: Gentle Moss, Simply Chartreuse, Summer Sun, Lemon Tart, Pure Poppy, Scarlet Jewel; Versafine Clair Nocturne pigment.
PAPER: Bitty Big: Pure Poppy, White.
DIES: Circle, Stitched rectangle.
OTHER: Wild Blooms stencil.

And...last but not least...another dad card in a mini slimline size.

This focuses on another of the unique sentiments for the baseball lovers in your life! The "DAD" letters were cut twice with red layered over black then glued to the shadow die cut from white.

While the "Exquisite" cover plate die isn't long enough to fit a slimline card, you can cut it to fit and then cover the cut with some ripped banner dies. The baseball is from the Just for Dad set and the bat is from Tuck It: Dad stamp/die set.

STAMPS: Just Sentiments: In Motion, Tuck It: Dad, Just for Dad.
INK: Candy Apple, Misty Coast, Rocky Slope, Licorice.
PAPER: White, True Black, Pure Poppy.
DIES: My Dad, Cover Plate: Exquisite, Ripped Banners, Tuck It: Dad, Just for Dad.


That was a lengthy post but I couldn't stop using these new goodies! Now, it's time to get your shopping list ready for release day tomorrow. There will also be an Instagram hop at 2pm EST on release day where all the designers will feature a card. We have some new guests that you don't want to miss! Thanks so much for stopping by and happy stamping!  ~Wanda
