introducing phrase play #12

Hi everyone, welcome to day 2 of the Papertrey Ink January release countdown! Today I am sharing some projects created with the new Phrase Play #12 set and coordinating die.

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.


It feels like a party this month with the newest in the Phrase Play series and I have some fun and festive cards to share.


I had some fun with a little watercoloring with some ink refills for this card. I cut the die in kraft cardstock for the word/frame piece and then die cut some white cardstock that I had painted.


I set the die cut pieces together for the from of the card and then sprinkled the stars from the watercolor die cut on each side - so fun! I pieced a couple of the sentiments in the set together with some selective inking to complete the "you're invited to a rock star party" sentiment for the card.


Isn't this just a sweet invitation for a birthday party? This is a design that you could easily change up the colors to match whatever party theme you are having. I used pieces of the Phrase Play #12 die cut instead of leaving it all in one piece. The "party" is cut out from some double stick foam and I glittered up the word with a little bit of chunky and a little bit of fine glitter.


I used the Monthly Moments: Journal Card 2 die to add the glittered "party" to the front of the card and then scattered a bunch of stars cut from kraft cardstock around and about the card front.


And finally, I had a little bit of fun using the Phrase Play #12 die to create a shaker card. I used the double sided foam to die cut the frame and then attached clear cardstock and the party frame die cut from white cardstock over the top.


Inside the shaker I added a cluster of die cut balloons and some star sequins. How fun would it be to receive a card like this for your birthday - and this would work for other types of celebrations too!


You can see more new products from the Papertrey Ink January release and projects created with them over at Nichole's blog. You will be able to link up to other design team members sharing projects today and also to the stamp designers who have new products to share this month.
