mat stack 6 collection & more wonderful words: together

Welcome to day 2 of the Papertrey Ink July release countdown! Today I more to share with my new Wonderful Words: Together set and also with the new Mat Stack 6 Collection.

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


The cards I am sharing today have 3 completely different looks - don't you love how stamping allows you to create in so many different styles?


This first card is bright and playful. I embossed the "together" onto white cardstock in clear and then used refills to watercolor over it. The result is a fun batik look with the pattern in the "together" word.


On the base of the card is a border that I created with an image from the Mat Stack 6 Collection. I stamped it in Versamark ink and then embossed it in white.


I think this card has a very classic modern feel to it. I stamped the chevron frame from Mat Stack 6 repeatedly in Fine Linen ink to create a background. I stamped the "meant to be" in the center frame image in Smokey Shadow ink. This background piece was perfect to support the focal image/sentiment of the card.


The "together" is die cut from kraft cardstock and attached right under the "meant to be" to finish off this card.



And finally, a traditional and rustic look. Kraft, Ripe Avocado, and Scarlet Jewel is a color combination that I love - it might seem a little bit holiday, but it can be used year round too.


If you didn't know, the Mat Stack 6 dies are open in the center. This allows you to stamp your image first and then use the die cut to cut it out (it also makes it cheaper to get the complete Mat Stack 6 set!)


I trimmed a bit off the right side of my card front and then had the Mat Stack 6 element overhang for a fun look.


Today Nichole has lots to share over on her blog and Dawn will be sharing more with Delightful Dahlia Additions and Boutique Borders: Love. Lizzie and Melissa have new sets to share this month so be sure to stop by their blogs too.
