Summertime Inspiration

Hello there! I’m back with Papertrey Ink showcasing a few more of the new sets in the May release. My first card features the new Plaid Builder stamp set as well as the Second Helping of Sunshine stamp set with coordinating dies.PTI-Second Helping of SunshineI used the Plaid Builder to create the pattern along the bottom half of the card. Using the coordinating dies, I stamped the bowl full of cherries and stamped the sentiment on the card & the bowl to tie it all together.PTI-Second Helping of SunshineThis next card features the Quilted: Sumer stamp set.PTI-Quilted: SummerI used the coordinating die with the quilt pattern as a guide to stamp my triangle pattern. The sentiment is from the new Watercooler Talk stamp set.PTI-Quilted: SummerMy last card uses the same die from Quilted: Summer. I die cut several colors of cardstock and popped them up with foam tape. PTI-Quilted: SummerI love how a quilt themed collection can take on such a graphic, modern look. The sentiment is also from the Quilted: Summer stamp set.PTI-Quilted: SummerMake sure and check out what the rest of the team has created using these new products.
