wonderful words: friends & figure of speech frame die

introducing wonderful words: friends & four square

Welcome to day 1 of the Papertrey Ink January release countdown! I am excited to share 2 new sets of mine that are debuting this month during the next few days.

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


This is the 12th, and final, in the Wonderful Words series. This month's word is "friends". Wonderful Words: Friends is a set that includes a large word (friends) with companion words and sentiments. This month's word is in a script font, with a rustic grid pattern overlay. 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: Friends retails for $5.


Four Square is a a wonderful addition to your list of basics that you will turn to again and again in your collection. The set features 4 frames with a circular opening in a variety of patterns. Coordinating sentiments and words are included in the set, or use the frames with other images or sentiments for more options! Four Square retails for $24.


The card that I sharing today uses both of my new sets on an almost one layer card. I stamped the background in Fine Linen ink and then added the Four Square frame in Spring Moss right over it.


The "friends" is stamped in Smokey Shadow and then I added the "'til the end" companion sentiment on a vellum strip. I suppose I could have stamped it directly onto the stamped frame, but I wanted it to stand out just a bit and the vellum banner adds just a little touch of texture to the card.


There is more to see on this first day of the countdown: Nichole will have lots of new things to share over at her blog, Betsy will be sharing more project created with my Four Square set, and Danielle will be sharing projects with Polka Dot Parade #12 and the new Polka Dot Parade Alphabet. Stop by the stamp designers blog today who have new sets to share this month: DawnMelissaErinLizzie, and Tiffany.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I look forward to sharing more with you again tomorrow!
