more good times
more birthday inspiration

inspiration by the sea


Hello everyone and welcome to day 3 of the Papertrey Ink June release countdown!

Today, the whole design team is sharing projects that are inspiration from the sea with the new Ahoy, Guiding Lights sets and some other coordinating products.

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


Stamping in a nautical theme for this post was so fun and it also made me long to visit Lake Superior here in Minnesota and dream of a trip to the ocean. I know that lighthouse images have been highly requested from Papertrey and Nichole did not disappoint with the new Guiding Lights set. I stamped my lighthouse the kraft cardstock die cut in Fresh Snow, Dark Chocolate, and True Black inks.


I incorporated the background/border stamp from my new Good Times set in my projects today too. I used the border here down the side of the card front in Fresh Snow ink on Enchanted Evening cardstock. The "let your light shine" sentiment is embossed in white next to the lighthouse and I added the verse from the new Light of Life set - that verse is such a favorite of mine and it works just perfectly on this card!


With the Ahoy set, I made up a little mini card duo. The cards measure 3 3/4" square so they fit in the 4" square envelopes that I stamped to coordinate. I can see these as perfect little gift cards for a little boys gift.


I used the Good Times border on these little cards too as a background on the Enchanted Evening squares on the cards. I added the die cut images on top of the squares with the sentiment flags tucked right underneath them and secured with a brad.


You can see more new products from the Papertey Ink June 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 for inspiration from the sea 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!
