papertrey ink july release

birthdays and rainbows

Welcome to the final day of sneak peeks for the Papertrey Ink July release! It's sure been fun and I have to say that this has been one of my favorite releases with all of the great stamp images, dies, and other supplies that are going to be available tomorrow, July 15th, at Papertrey Ink!


For today's projects I mixed the Library Card and Fillable Frames #6 sets with the Up, Up & Away  set to create a bright and cheery birthday card and tag set.


I stamped the library card image in Spring Rain on white cardstock and then stamped the rainbow image and birthday sentiment (from Alli Miles' new Birthday Bash Sentiments set) in True Black. The rainbow is colored with Copic markers and then I added glitter to it using a glue pen. The library card image makes a great base to start with when designing a cardfront. Use it as your image space and build from there.


I used my Library Card Page die for the tag so you can see the size comparison with the Library card stamp. The sizing is based on my mini book concept that I shared here- the same post that I offered the original library card download.

Instead of using the cloud image like on the card, I used the frame image from Fillable Frames #6. I added the "make a wish" sentiment, but you could substitute another sentiment or even personalize the tag with the recipient's name.


There's lots to see on this last day of sneak peeks! Nichole & Dawn are sharing more with Dawn's new It's Official set and Nichole & Maile are featuring Alli's new Birthday Bash Sentiments set. Niki will have one last sneak peek at her new set today too!

Also, don't miss the online release party over in the Papertrey Ink forums tonight 10PM - midnight EST! We would love to see you there!

Thank you again so much for joining me these last couple of days. I appreciate all of the wonderful comments you all have left! Have fun shopping & stamping!
