Welcome to Papertrey Ink's first group post for December. We are focusing on the new Embroidered Blooms and Ribbons & Bows stamp sets.
My first card uses the Embroidered Blooms stamp set to create a background created with the Double Wedding Ring quilt pattern in mind. I used multiple images from this set along with Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, Harvest Gold, Hibiscus Burst, and Berry Sorbet ink. I cut flowers using the Beautiful Blooms II #1 die from felt in Melon Berry and Vintage Cream with leaves cut from Aqua Mist felt using the Sending You die. I added a simple strip of Sweet Blush Topnotch Twill along with a sentiment stamped on vellum and embossed in White Pearls.
This card uses the beautiful Ribbons & Bows set very simply across the bottom of the card...I really love accenting with these images. The script for the sentiments is beautiful as well.
I used the Beautiful Blooms II #1 die again on this card along with Ocean Tides felt, centered with an Aqua Mist felt flower cut using the Beautiful Blooms II #2 die and a Limeade Ice button. I used the Rick Rack Border die as an accent just above the sentiment.
I used the Cover Plate: Circles Die and stamped images from the Embroidered Blooms set inside each open circle using Limeade Ice, Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides, Simply Chartreuse, Hawaiian Shores, and Spring Moss ink. The leaves were stamped in Limeade Ice and Simple Chartreuse and die cut using the Turning a New Leaf die.
I used the Ribbons & Bows set as my background on this card and stamped the images in Pure Poppy, Sweet Blush, and Hibiscus Burst. I used Aqua Mist Polka Dot and Stripe paper to accent my card and stamped the sentiment in Hawaiian Shores.
My favorite new dies of this whole release are the Limitless Layers Hearts 2 1/4" die collection....oh, how I love them. The center heart was cut from Sweet Blush cardstock and coated in glitter. I used the Beautiful Blooms II #2 and Turning a New Leaf dies to form my accents here and stamped the flower with Pure Poppy and Hibiscus Burst and the leaves in Hawaiian Shores and Aqua Mist. Just a Sweet Blush button and trinket pin were left to add as finishing touches.
I couldn't resist making a few treat bags using the Embroidered Blooms set and used Scarlet Jewel, Pure Poppy, Classic Kraft, and Dark Chocolate as my ink colors...love the warmth of this combination. Once again you can see the Limitless Layers Hearts 2 1/4" die collection in action here....addicting, yes! I die cut them using Classic Kraft and Rustic Cream cardstock.
For the hearts and sentiments on these tags I turned to the new Framed Out #11 stamp set. I added a border across one of the bags using the Heart Border die and then a bit of tea stained Pure Poppy Baker's twine to finish them off.
Lastly, I combined both sets once again to create this card using the color palette of Melon Berry, Pure Poppy, Sweet Blush, and Berry Sorbet. The flowers were cut using the Beautiful Blooms II #2 die and the leaves cut using the Turning a New Leaf die. I used Spring Moss and Simply Chartreuse here. The Simply Chartreuse felt leaves were cut using the Sending You die once again.
I piled my stamping and embellishments on shapes cut using the new Mat Stack 6 die collection...it's a beauty too!
