a need for speed


Welcome to day 3 of the Papertrey Ink June release countdown. Today is a group post and we are all sharing projects made from new transportation themed products that are making their debut this month.

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.


First up is this super FAST birthday card! I stamped the car with the new Need for Speed set in Blueberry Sky and Enchanted Evening inks. The details are stamped with Smokey Shadow and Pure Poppy inks. I curved the tire tracks in the Need for Speed set on my block before stamping them and then added the car so it looks like it's peeling out of the parking lot!


The sentiment includes a road sign from the new Road Signed set that I stamped the "fast" inside of. I added the first part of the sentiment embossed in white on a strip of Smokey Shadow cardstock. That embossed trim at the bottom is the Silver Luxe adhesive paper that I impressed with the Stitching impression plate.


I created this little set of monogram pictures with the new Stitched Truck and Stitched Car die collections. My nephews are very into cars and trucks and so I made each of them their own stitched truck to hang up on the wall (or they could stand on a shelf too.) I did the car for Porter in blue and the truck for Gunnar in orange. These stitched up so easily and I just love all of the little details.


I attached the stitched car and truck to kraft cardstock and then tucked them into 4"x6" frames that I had taken the glass out of. You could use a shadow box style frame of you wanted to leave the glass in the frame. I bought these little frames at IKEA a while ago, but I know you would be able to find that size of frame at many different places. The stitched letters are created using the Sew Stylish Alphabet 1 dies.


You can see more new products being debuted today for the June release over at Nichole's blog. From there you can link up to other members of the design team who have new things to share with you today too!

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