Good Monday Morning! I hope your week is off to a great start. Today I bring you a few projects created using Papertrey Ink's new Phrase Play #2 and Polka Dot Basics III. The Phrase Play #2 set adds a stamped sentiment to finish off the phrase, "I'll Always", that is available with the coordinating die, offering many different endings to your phrase. It's a lot of fun to play with.
I pieced together die cut cardstock and paper, just like a puzzle, and then stamped my sentiment in watermark ink and embossed it using Stampendous Aged Rose. I embellished with White Silk Ribbon and flowers cut from felt and paper using the new Bitty Button Stacks dies. The gold die cut leaves use the Heart-2-Heart #7 die and remnants I have on hand from Betsy's Make It Market Kit: Luxe Letterpress...I love having a stash of gold to turn to.
I used the Polka Dot Basics III stamp set to form a block of background color and embossed the polka dots in pinks, plums, and silver. I used a stamped and embossed vellum feather using the Feather Finery stamp set and die, to form a soft accent for this card.
Next up, I used the dies left over from the Phrase Play #2 die and stacked them to form a shadow effect. I finished my sentiment using the Phrase Play #2 stamp set and stamped it onto white cardstock cut using the Limitless Layers: 2 1/4" Hearts die.
The sentiment was finished by stamping the second portion onto die cut vellum stamped and then embossed using Zing! Blush embossing powder. The Double Ended Banners die and Heart-2-Heart #11 dies were used to create a handmade embellishment that goes right along with the sentiment. I then finished the card with Orange Zest Baker's Twine.
My last card uses the Polka Dot Basics III stamp set along with the Phrase Play #2 die. The polka dots were stamped onto a bock of Rustic Cream cardstock and embossed using Zing! Mustard embossing powder. I then die cut the block of cardstock and used it as m focal point, adding in pops of red for my sentiment.
More sweet little Bitty Button Stack flowers were used and the remainder of my sentiment was stamped directly into the opening of the die.
