Hey friends! It's the fifth and final day of the Papertrey Ink April countdown posts! So, what have been your favorite products from this release? Honestly, I don't think I could choose a favorite! :-)
Oh, did you all see the Papertrey Ink blog this morning? They have announced the name of the new Gray cardstock (aka the prettiest medium gray color ever!)! Make sure to check it out!
All of the new products will be available tomorrow, April 15th at 10 pm Eastern.
Today I am featuring the new Simple Impressions: Celebrations Kit! Betsy has designed a kit that is SO perfect for beginner stampers! Everything (and I do mean everything) that is needed is included in the kit, from the adhesive and ink to the clear block needed to stamp! This would make such an amazing gift for friends and family who may not have all of the supplies "yet"! Ha!
Good news for those of you that are more seasoned crafters! The stamp set from the kit is available separately, along with a coordinating die set!
I created my first card using the Simple Impressions: Celebrations stamp set and coordinating die set. This is such a great set! It really covers a lot of occasions, from birthdays and anniversaries to new babies and graduation!
I started by dry brushing some white acrylic paint onto Kraft cardstock. I really like how it softens the kraft as well as gives it a linen like texture.
I then took the star die from the Simple Impressions: Celebrations and die cut the kraft cardstock several times. I thought the negative die cut outs would make a great background.
I embellished the card with stamped and die cut balloons, flowers, and a banner. I stamped the sentiment on the banner from the Tag Sale: Quilted die set.
Not yet linked but available April 15th at 10 pm ET: Simple Imp
For my next card I used only the supplies included in the Simple Impressions: Celebrations Kit! I created a rainbow of balloons using these following ink colors from the kit: Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Green Parakeet, and Aqua Mist.
I stamped the sentiment on a curve to mimic the banner. I embellished with the included sequins.
Make sure to check out the Papertrey Ink blog for even more inspiration!
Thanks so much for joining me here today!
