more wonderful words: thank you & nuts for you

Welcome to day 3 of the Papertrey Ink August release countdown. Today I have some more projects to share using my new Wonderful Words: Thank You and Nuts For You sets.

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


First up is a card that I created with Wonderful Words: Thank You, Wonderful Words: Teacher, and the new Apple Prints set. The three of these together are perfect for a teacher thank you card and a look at using the focal words of the Wonderful Words sets together for the sentiment on your projects.


I stamped the "thank you" from the set on a strip of Pure Poppy cardstock using Scarlet Jewel Ink and then added the "teacher" word that is stamped on the coordinating die cut with Smokey Shadow ink.


I had to do a little more coloring with the squirrel from Nuts For you. This time I used Copic markers and added a polka dot texture with the colorless blender. After I added the polka dots, I went over the image again with the main shade of brown to keep the polka dots a little more subtle.


I added the background on the white cardstock with the new Autumn Pattern Pieces set and instead of stamping it first, I actually stamped it right over my colored image. If you are using a lighter shade, like Fine Linen or Soft Stone, it really isn't going to affect the image.

Today you can go to Nichole's blog to see more new stamp sets and products for this August release. Ashley is sharing the new Basket of Blessings and Background Basics: Morocco sets and Dawn is sharing her new sets: Mum's the Word and Boutique Borders: Sympathy. Maile and Melissa have new sets to share this month so be sure to stop by their blogs too.

Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow is a group post and I will have more to share with my new sets too!
