PTI May Release Countdown Day 3


Hi everyone! It's day three of the release countdown at Papertrey Ink. Today, we are introducing you to Larger Than Life: Baby Sentiments + Larger Than Life: Baby die + Baby Background stamps + Vase Collection 18 stamps and dies. Here are three projects I created.

I went with a monochromatic color scheme and didn't add much to the busy background which was white embossed on sage card stock.

I adhered two of the large baby dies to add more stability. The silver charm was added to a bow made with seam binding, narrow satin ribbon, silver cord and tulle ribbon.
A tiny sage strip was added for more visual interest.

STAMPS: Larger Than Life: Baby Sentiments, Baby Background.
INK: Versamark.
PAPER: White, Sage Shadow.
DIES: Larger Than Life: Baby.
OTHER: Simple Strips die; Flag Banner dies; White embossing powder, Silver charm; Ribbons; Silver cord.

Next up is my featured post for May. It involves two cards using the beautiful new vase and florals!

1. Stamp some color variation by stamping the lightest of two shades first. Then take a small blending brush or sponge dauber and pounce on a darker color around some of the edges. Repeat until you get desired effect.
2. Rounding the card corners helps to soften the look.
3. Don't forget your buttons! They can add a fun element.

STAMPS: Vase Collection 18, Tuck It Sentiments.
INK: Sweet Blush, Pale Peony, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse; Metropolis; Versafine Clair Nocturne.
PAPER: Patterned, White.
DIES: Vase Collection 18, Love to Layer: Ovals; Stitched Flags.
OTHER: Button.

Instead of stamping the colors, I used Copics to color in the image on the next card.

1. Copic markers were used to color the florals. I find Memento ink works best to stamp the image to avoid "bleeding" of colors.
2. Twine is a great option instead of ribbon as it is less bulky and is easier to mail. 
3. I love the smaller "one line" sentiments from the Tuck It Sentiments set when I don't want to cover up much of the design.

STAMPS: Vase Collection 18, Tuck It Sentiments.
INK: Enchanted Evening, Dark Indigo; Memento Tuxedo Black.
PAPER: Patterned; White; X-Press It Blending Card.
DIES: Vase Collection 18, Love to Layer: Delightful Brackets.
OTHER: Red & white thread; Copics ( Y08, YG13, YG17, G20, G43, R35, R46, R59, R22, R43, RV21, RV29).



That's it for today. Tomorrow will be the last day of reveals so we'll see you then!  ~Wanda
