papertrey ink march 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 March release countdown will be available to purchase tonight, March 15th, 10PM ET at Papertrey Ink.

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


There's more birthday inspiration with the next few cards that I have to share. I used the Script Swirls: Birthday set to dress up these balloons for a birthday party! The swirls are embossed with clear embossing powder on the Hawaiian Shores and Green Parakeet balloons.


I stamped the background with the stars from the set in Fresh Snow ink. This turned out so fun and festive and it's a great card to customize to any color combination that you want.


This card uses the new Splits: Celebrate set. I embossed the image with white embossing powder onto the kraft cardstock die cut and then stamped the sentiment in True Black.


I pulled out the Confetti Toss patterned paper and found the perfect background for this birthday card. That makes this card pretty quick and easy! The base of the card is Parakeet Green and I used a bit or Orange Zest bitty dot ribbon too.


This next birthday card is also quick and easy. I used the new Shaped Sayings: Birthday die cut from white cardstock and attached it onto a piece of the Hooray patterned paper.


I added just a few details to finish off the card: a kraft strip stamped with Fresh Snow polka dots and a sprinkling of some star sequins.


I stamped up some pretty irises from the Flower Favorites set to go with the "thanks so much" sentiment from the new Fancy Pants Sentiments set.


The flourishes around to go around the sentiments from the set are really unique and fun and reminded me of the Fancy Flourishes set. I used some flourishes around the stamped irises to pull the design all together.


I created a card to encourage someone using the new What the Doodle: Feather and Keep it Simple: Encouragement sets. I embossed three feathers in clear embossing powder on Aqua Mist paper and then inked them with some Fresh Snow ink. I love the soft shaded effect. When you ink an embossed image with Fresh Snow ink, a tip is to wipe the embossed image once you are done inking with a cloth that is slightly damp. It really helps get the last bit of ink off the embossed areas and makes the image pop.


On one feather I layered the feather die cut in kraft over the top. That feather is stamped with the feather image in Fresh Snow ink and I love the patterns on the die cut and how the pattern on the card peeks through the openings.


Finally is the Bloomin' Cute and Inspired: Lord sets. I stamped a flower grouping onto kraft cardstock, misting the inked stamps (except the Fresh Snow) before I stamped them for a bit of a watercolor look. I layered that onto a Fine Linen cardstock base.


I added the "Lord" die cut from white cardstock onto the card front with the coordinating "trust in the" stamped in True Black ink.
