Welcome to day 2 of the Papertrey Ink December release countdown! Today I am sharing the new Fresh Floral Wrap-Ups set with you as well and my new set XOXO.

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


Fresh Floral Wrap-Ups is a set that works great for Valentine's Day, but is great for so many other occasions as well including a sweet thank you for someone like this card here is for. I combined Sweet Blush with the new Lovely Lady pink for this project and the combination is lovely.


I stamped the bouquet and cut it out by hand for this card and attached it to the notched banner frame from the Keep it Simple Frames die collection that I stamped with the sentiment that is included in the Fresh Floral Wrap-Ups set. The background of the card is created with the Cover Plate: Hearts die and I inset a few of the hearts in the Lovely Lady cardstock.


I combined the Fresh Floral Wrap-Ups set with a sentiment from my new XOXO set. I stamped the bouquet onto the watercolor paper that I smooshed some Sweet Blush Ink onto. The little tag on the bouquet is cut out and attached to  the stamped string.


I stamped the "love" word in Pure Poppy ink and then added the "I" and "you" in True Black to complete sentiment. A bit of True Black polka dot ribbon and a few rhinestones were the perfect finishing touch for this card.


For this next card, I used just floral pieces from the Fresh Floral Wrap-Ups set adorn this wedding card. I embossed the wedding sentiment with gold embossing powder and then added the floral pieces to watch end, also embossed in gold.


I used a frame border from the Keep It Simple Frames die collection to frame the sentiment and I love the effect that it created on this card. Simple & elegant.

And now I have another card to share with you that I created with my new XOXO set...


I used the new Lovely Lady cardstock for the card base and stamped a heart background with Fresh Snow ink. I added the sentiment with the die cut "love" word and added the stamped "always" underneath it in True Black ink.


Next to the sentiment, I added a heart embellishment that I put together with an XOXO heart die in Sweet Blush, a glittered heart from the Cover Plates: Hearts die, and an arrow from the Cupid's Arrow die collection.
