introducing sentiment signs & more framed out #10
November 11, 2012
Welcome to day 2 of the Papertrey Ink November release countdown. Today I am introducing my new Sentiment Signs set and have another project to share using my new Framed Out #10 set.
Sentiment Signs is a sentiment collection that is inspired by vintage subway signs. Many commonly used sentiments are included in each block with coordinating sentiments and words. Perfect as a focal point of your card projects or even for the inside, this will become a basic sentiment set that you will reach for again and again. Sentiment Signs retails for $24.
All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on November 15, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.
Let's get going with projects!
One of the things that I discovered while creating projects, is that the sentiments in Sentiment Signs fit right onto the rectangle die in the new Tag Sale #7 die collection!
For this card, I stamped the "congrats" sign onto a Rustic White die cut rectangle and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I added ink with an ink blending tool to color the paper Smokey Shadow/True Black. Doing the "sign" this way gave the letters a bit of a distressed look and the background has a softer look and color compared to embossing white onto a black cardstock.
The card also has a bit of the "chalkboard" look that is popular right now too - love that.
For this get well card, I spotlighted just one word in the sentiment block. You can do this with a marker quite easily, but if you don't have a water based marker, here's a way to do it...
I inked the center of the stamp with Smokey Shadow ink and then used a damp q-tip (a wet wipe would work as well) to remove ink from the areas where I didn't want that color. It was easy to ink up the top and bottom parts of the stamp with the Soft Stone ink pad after that.
The bowl and spoon are from the new Comfort Food stamp set and die collection. The bowl of soup os perfect for this get well card.
Finally, I used a portion of one of the sentiment signs block for the "smile" sentiment that is inside the frame from the new Framed Out #10 set.
If there was ever a set to experiment with cutting apart, this is the set. The sentiments are spaced out well enough that you don't need to worry too much about cutting into parts of the stamp that you don't want to. Your sentiment collection instantly grows!
I put all of the parts of the stamp back together so you can see how you can reassemble the sentiment block back together and use it whole again. Are you brave enough to try it?
The background for this card is done using the new Background Basics: Inspiration set stamped in Fresh Snow on the kraft cardstock.
Today, Nichole will be sharing more about my 2 new sets, the Comfort Food set and more. Jessica will be sharing projects with the Comfort Food set on her blog and Erin, Lexi, and Melissa will also have projects to share with their new sets on their blogs too.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, see you again tomorrow for more!
