Introducing Simple Stars

Hello there! Today is the first group post with Papertrey Ink. For the first group post we are featuring the new Simple Stars stamp set and coordinating Cover Plate die.PTI~Simple StarsThe nice things about the new Simple Stars stamp set is that it can work easily for both masculine and feminine cards. This first card is a bit more masculine. My brother is very patriotic and would love something like this. I die cut three panels of blue cardstock with the Stars Cover Plate and layered them for thickness. I also adhere a some red, gold and lighter blue stars in a few of the openings and embossed the sentiment in white.
PTI~Simple StarsThis next card is a litte more feminine .
PTI~Simple StarsFirst I ran a piece of white cardstock through the Star Cover Plate die and then stamped them in various colors and patterns from the Simple Stars stamp set. I stitched the stars to the card front to create a fun banner look.
PTI~Simple StarsI just know that the rest of the design team probably came up with some amazing ideas using this new stamp set and die. Check them out and drool away:)

  1. Both cards are really fabulous, Laura! I love the patriotic color combo on the first one, and your stitched banners are so fun on the 2nd one! You always showcase new products beautifully…I can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us!!!

  2. I really like them both. The masculine one has a crispness that is energizing. The female version is just plain fun…

  3. Fantastic cards! Love the cover plate with some color behind…great patriotic card! Love the star banners stitched!

  4. Great cards, Laura! Love how you’ve used Simple Stars and made two completely different kinds of cards. Nice sewing as well! They’d make a great baby card too, or an Oscar Party invitation; very versatile set.
