life is beautiful & monthly moments: may
watercolored die cuts

papertrey ink may release wrap up

It's release day at Papertrey InkAll of the new stamp sets and products that the design team have been sharing during the May release countdown will be available to purchase tonight, May 15th, 10PM ET at Papertrey Ink.

Today I have the rest of my projects for this May release to share with you...


Here is a sweet and simple sympathy card created with the Oopsie Daisy and Keep it Simple: Sympathy sets.


I used Fresh Snow ink for the flower outline and stems, filled in the petals with Aqua Mist and Spring Rain  and added leaves with Spring Moss.


I completely love the Ballerina Beauty set. It was so much fun to color her up and create her glittery tutu. I even added some sequin bling - too fun!


You cannot beat the $5 price on this set and I am hoping there are more of this kind planned for the future (please, Nichole??)


And finally, I had a great time playing around and putting this pair of cards together using the Phrase Play die and a few other things. I love the Soft Stone card base stamped with Fresh Snow ink.


This card has just the letters from the Phrase Play #4 die that I combined with the Phrase Play #4 set Splat set.


I had a little fun spattering some Ocean Tides ink refill with a watercolor brush too! This would be a great card to experiment with some different color combinations.


For this card I used the Phrase Play #4 die cut from kraft cardstock with the "celebrate" & "it's your birthday" sentiment from the Wet Paint III set.


That ampersand is from the Grand Ampersand, stamped in Ocean Tides ink, and I did a little ink spattering again here like on the previous card.
