Day #2 June Reveals at Papertrey Ink

It's day two of reveals for the June release at  Papertrey Ink. Today, we are introducing you to Into the Blooms: Iris dies + Larger Than  Life: Hello stamps and dies. You will not want to miss all of the design team's creativity using these gorgeous new florals and sentiments!

I first die cut all the floral pieces from Bristol Smooth Surface card stock then color blended them. I discovered the colors I picked matched well with the patterned papers from PTI's "Egg Hunt" 8x8" patterned paper. Score! The Amethyst Allure sentiment banner was white embossed and popped up with foam tape.

1. Layer at least 2 sentiment and frame dies to add dimension and make it sturdier to handle.
2. Color blend your florals to add depth and a more realistic look.

STAMPS: Larger Than Life: Hello Sentiments.
INK: Lilac Grace, Amethyst Allure, Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise; Grassy Knoll, Olive.
PAPER: White, Lemon Tart, Text-Style "Egg Hunt" 8x8" patterned paper.
DIES: Into the Blooms: Iris, Skinny Frames: Diagonal Border, On the Border: Sunburst Border, Larger Than Life: Hello.

This background gives you a sneak peek of the new hot foil plate that you'll see more of on the last day of reveals. The vertical scalloped die is from the Birthday Celebration die set and has a wee bit of a striped paper peeking out. The vertical embossed design is hard to see in the photo but is a detail I love.

1. Break up the sentiments into small "blocks" for a different look.
2. Add a variety of textures with hot foiling, twine, dry embossing, etc.

STAMPS: Larger Than Life: Hello Sentiments.
INK: Brassy Knoll, Olive; Lemon Tart, Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise, Honey Nut.
PAPER: White, True Black, Bristol Smooth Surface; Striped patterned paper.
DIES: Into the Blooms: Iris, Larger Than Life: Hello, Birthday Celebration Bling.
OTHER: Pleasing Pineapple hot foil plate, White matte foil, Black twine.


That's a wrap for day two! Come back tomorrow for more good things!  ~Wanda
