introducing red, white & blue and the star spangled impression plate

introducing wonderful words: baby

Welcome to day 1 of the Papertrey Ink May release countdown! I am so excited about this month's release because it just feels like summer and has been a breath of fresh air to work with. I have 2 new stamp sets debuting this month to share with you.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing with you will be available to purchase on May 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.


The peek of the set above from my new Red, White & Blue set. It's a definite patriotic theme sets to celebrate the 4th of July, Flag Day, Memorial Day, and perfect for creating cards to send to our service men & women. I will share more about this new set tomorrow! Red, White & Blue retails for $15.


And here is the next set in the Wonderful Words series, this month with the feature word "baby".

Wonderful Words: Baby is a set that includes a large word (baby) with companion words and sentiments. The set has a coordinating die for the large word as well. You can use the die alone, stamp the word alone, or use the 2 together. Wonderful Words: Baby retails for $5.

I have a card today that uses new new Wonderful Words: Baby set...


The "baby" word this month is done with a loopy cursive script for a sweet whimsical look. The overlay pattern is a simple polka dot that will coordinate with any theme. And what's going on in the background of this card? It's a new impression plate that I will share more about tomorrow :)


The "baby" word is stamped with Aqua Mist ink onto the die cut word. I stamped "hello" on Rustic White cardstock and then punched it out with a 3/4" circle punch. A little sprinkle of sequins and stars is the perfect finishing touch to this baby card that is perfect for either gender.

There is more to see on this first day of the countdown! Make sure to stop by Nichole's blog to see all sorts of new stamp sets and products - she is sharing more about Wonderful Words: Baby today too. Betsy will be sharing projects with the new Polka Dot Parade #4 and Wonderful Words: Baby. Ashley will be sharing the new Boutique Borders: Baby and the new Baby Button Bits dies. Stamp designers with new sets this month will be sharing peeks on their blogs too: Dawn, Melissa, and Maile.

See you tomorrow with more to share! Bring your sparklers :)
