PTI-July Release in Review

Hi there! I’m back for the final group post with Papertrey Ink showcasing the remainder of our release projects for July.PTI-Rainy Day SentimentsI used the pattern teardrops from the new Rainy Day Sentiments set to create the colorful background and then embossed a sentiment in white from the new Perfect Pairing set. To finish it off I added some loose silver thread and glossy accent dots.
PTI-Rainy Day SentimentsThis next card features the new L’Shanah Tovah stamp set with coordinating dies. First I embossed the sentiment in clear. Then I masked off a strip along the bottom of the card and blended in Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky & Enchanted Evening.
PTI-L'Shanah TovahNext up is the Petite Places: Main Street.
PTI-Petite Places: Main StreetI combined this fun new cafe themed set with images and dies from City Scene & Sweet Shoppe. I also added a soft sky color in the background using.Hawaiian Shores.
PTI-Petite Places: Main StreetMy final card showcases the gorgeous new Morning by Morning stamp set with coordinating dies.
PTI-Morning By MorningI added a strip of Soft Stone striped pattern paper along the side along with a sentiment from the new Keep It Simple: Just Because.

Vintage LinensThis next card was inspired by the gorgeous color combination in the photo below. I saw it on Pinterest, but it is originally from HERE.3dff80cf8034faf0ad9606478bb021aeI used a piece of paper from the Black & White All Over Patterned Paper Pad for the stripes and stamped several floral images to create a sort of bouquet.

PTI-Make It Monday

Hello! Just popping in to share a Make It Monday video that I have over on the Papertrey Ink blog. I’m sharing a couple of ways to add color to your cover plates.PTI-Peony Cover PlateFor my first project I added color to the Peony Cover Plate using Copic Markers with some subtle ink blending on the card base.
PTI-Peony Cover PlateOn my next card I used one of the Zig Clean Color Markers in Carmine Red to add color to the In the Woods Cover Plate.
PTI-In the Woods Cover PlateI also added some subtle aqua ink blending to the card base. I was going with a “under the sea” approach?? Is that a stretch? Maybe so. If not that then maybe a Japanese Cherry Blossom.
PTI-In the Woods Cover PlateHere’s a video to show you how I made these two projects.
If you feel inspired to color one of your cover plates, feel free to join & link up your project over on the Papertrey Ink blog for your chance to win $25 to spend at PTI. I’ll be checking the entries, so I’d love to see what you come up with! Thanks so much for stopping by!

My brother is like, “Papertrey again, Laura?” and I’m like, “You got it, red rider.”

PTI-Make It Market Mini Kit- Still Life: SummerI did lots of rock n’ roll inking on these beautiful fruits. That pattern paper that comes in the kit is so lovely. I added a little strip of polka dotted washi along the side along with an embossed sentiment from Wet Paint.
