summer inspiration

Hello everyone and welcome to another day of the Papertrey Ink May release countdown. Today is a group post day and today we all have some summer inspiration to share using the new Quilted: Summer and Second Helping of Sunshine sets.

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

First of all I have some summertime picnic inspiration to share that I found on Pinterest...

I fell in love with the color and feel of the photo. I pulled the following colors and started creating: Berry Sorbet, Spring Moss, Harvest Gold, and Classic Kraft.


This whole little grouping of cards that I created from the inspiration photo makes me anxious for taking my family on a picnic and picking up some special seasonal treats at the farmers market to take with us.


This cute quilt card created with the new Quilted: Summer set makes me need to go shopping for quilt fabrics. I pieced the quilt on the card using the coordinating die cut and stamped "fabric" pieces.


I stamped a coordinating piece of Berry Sorbet cardstock with the new Plaid Builders set for the bottom edge of my card. Instead of stamping a plaid design, I did a diagonal stripe design.


These sweet mini cards with the cherry bowls are done using the mini card die from the Make it Market: Party Poppers kit. I adore this sweet scalloped design and knew when I first used it that it would be one I pulled out again and again.


I stamped a little quilted border with the Quilted: Summer set to set my cherry bowls onto that I stamped with the Second Helping of Sunshine set. It looks like the bowls are sitting on a quilted table cloth - too cute!


You can see more new products from the Papertey Ink May release and projects created with them over at Nichole's blog. You will be able to link up to other design team members to see the projects that they are sharing with the new Quilted: Summer and Second Helping of Sunshine sets for some summertime inspiration today and also to the stamp designers who have new products to share this month.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I will be back tomorrow with more to share!
