Papertrey Ink July Release Day 5

Hello and welcome to Day 5 of the Papertrey Ink July Release! I'm so excited to be here sharing some of the AMAZING new stamps and dies for this month's release! I'm giddy, if you must actually know, because these are ALL products that I know I will be using AGAIN and AGAIN and I know you will fall in love with them, too! Today I am showcasing one new stamp set and a new set of scallop dies. I have also worked in a few other new goodies that I will talk about in my post as well.

Let's dive right in so that I can tell you all about the amazing new  "Scallop Stackers"! Now, the name should have tipped me off that these dies could be cut apart, but if you'll notice in the new release teaser video, I hadn't cut them apart! Thank heavens Dawn clued me in {LOL!} so that I could properly showcase them for you today! These dies come in a set of two, but when cut apart, they make a set of 4....a larger set and a smaller, more intricate set. I love the look of both and I will show you the smaller set further down.

To begin, I die cut the two pieces of the larger scallop set using Fresh Snow Linen Cardstock. If you haven't used this cardstock yet, I beg of you to run and purchase some now! It is beautiful and amazing! It gives just a whisper of detail that really steps up a design like this! Of course it is hard to tell in these photos, but in real life it gives it that sophisticated elegance that we all hope to add to our designs! I also used the new Pierced Feature Frames in ALL of my samples today because they work SO WELL paired with the Scallop Stackers.

I stamped the flowers from the Orchid Expressions stamp set that was featured yesterday. I love that you can use the flowers alone, or with that amazing pot. For this card, I just chose to use the flowers.  This particular image is a 3 step image and I stamped it in Winter Wisteria InkPlum Pudding Ink, and Royal Velvet Ink. The stem is stamped in brown.

I also used the new Shape Shifters: Square 2 as the mat for the flowers and the sentiment, which is from one of today's featured stamps "Botanical Bounty Sentiments". I was thrilled when I saw that there would be a sentiment set to highlight the style of the flowers in the Botanical Bounty sets. I also LOVE that they have coordinating dies. I like adding sentiments OVER my focal images and I get sick of sentiment strips, so the die cuts are a big game changer for me and make the set WAY more desirable! I thought the font accented the orchids nicely as well. 

For this pair of cards, I used the Botanical Bounty II stamp set so that you could see just how nicely the sentiments complement the flowers! Of course, I'm also showing you BOTH sets of the new Scallop Stackers in this set of cards. I just love them!

Once again, I used the Fresh Snow Linen Cardstock, but you can see how nicely it looks with the yellow ink blended around the scallops. This really lets that subtle pattern shine! You can also see why I love having the coordinating die cuts for the sentiments. I couldn't achieve this type of a look without the die cuts. Each one is embossed in gold and then added using foam squares.

In this photo, you can see how well the  Pierced Feature Frames work with the Scallop Stackers. I also added a few sequins here and there!

Okay friends, I saved my favorite for the very end. Last month, MY favorite didn't seem to be everyone else's favorite, but that's just how things go, right? Well...this particular card was inspired by all of the MANY Navy and Burgundy wedding photos that keep popping up in my Pinterest feed. They are PURE EYE CANDY and I was so happy to incorporate that inspiration into this design. That BEAUTIFUL Mr & Mrs stamp, which is from the "Botanical Bounty Sentiments" set really made my heart go pitter patter. Who needs an entire wedding set when you have something as bold and gorgeous as this?....and heat embossed in Rose Gold embossing powder? forget about it! LOL! I just adore how it looks against the Dark Indigo Cardstock

My heart just about skipped a beat when I saw how AMAZING the new Corner Adorner for July looks embossed as well! I love, love, LOVE how it looks paired with the "Mr & Mrs". As I mentioned before, I used the Pierced Feature Frames....again! LOL!  You can really see how nicely the "Scallop Stackers" look tone on tone. I used Scarlet Jewel cardstock for the base as well as the scallops. 

I loved the colors that were in the bouquets for the Navy and Burgundy weddings, so I tried my best to recreate the look. The flowers are from the Stitching Garden stamp set and I stamped them and then used the coordinating Stitching Garden Dies.

I had so much fun arranging the flowers. I just love how nicely they look with the lacy Corner Adorner! I had so much fun on all of these projects! Everything will be available for purchase on the 15th!  Thanks for fluttering by!

Every single one of your designs are"eye candy", as you say and your wedding card should be in every planner' s notebook. Simply gorgeous! I'm so happy you're a bigger part of the team these days! Thank you Kelly & I hope you have a great weekend!! :)
