Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m back for Day 5 of the Papertrey Ink February Release! Are you excited for the release tomorrow? I’m pretty excited to see all the amazing things ya’ll create with all these beautiful new products. If you happen to notice my absense yesterday or that I have fewer release cards than usual, then you caught me! For this month and the next couple of months, I will be taking a more of “part-time” status to help me get through my day job. As some of you may already know, I’m an accountant, and this time of year is pretty hectic for me, so for the betterment of my health, my team has pitched in a little extra to give me some extra time to rest. I love my team! But nevertheless, I love to create and share, so I will still be around as much as I can. Without further ado, let me share my final release card with you featuring the absolutely gorgeous Season Borders: Spring by Betsy!
This stamp and die set combo features a cluster of flowers that can be easily be created into a full border (three repeated clusters). You know what? I just had a sudden idea of using those borders as decorative ring around a cupcake cup. Okay, sorry, side tracked! The dies also offer just one cluster as well if you wish to use it on its own, or there’s also larger images of the same florals. In my usual ways, I die cut everything and stamp everything. It’s how I begin my crafting brainstorming. I’m still rockin’ the pastel theme, so I went with pinks, purples, and blues.
I reached for one of my all-time favorite dies, the Noted: Scalloped A2 Die Collection, and die cut my dainty scallop base. I used some post it tape to mask off the edges and then blended Blueberry Sky on opposite corners over the Quatrefoil Stencil. Then I sprinkled a little splatter with the same ink.I’m so
Next, I picked up a snetiment from the You Deserves Flowers Collection and heat embossed it in silver right in the center. I created a floral arrangement around the sentiment stemming from the corners that I blended in. I varied the depths of the arrangement with foam tape and liquid adhesive.
I’m so ready for Spring! Can you tell? We just finished the hardscape of the backyard, and I can’t wait to dedicate some good weekends just to get the garden growing! And hopfully they’ll bloom as beautifully as these flowers here. Thank you for sticking around all release long. I hope my cards offered some inspiration and help provide some ideas for the February Release goodies. I look forward to seeing all the amazing projects ya’ll create with them!
