The Papertrey Ink group post #1 for January is underway and I think you're going to love this new stamp set, I know I certainly do. The Design Team members were assigned to create a card and a memory keeping type of project for you, and it's my day to showcase this set, so I have a few extras for you as well.
I have a wedding card to share with you first which uses the Seed Packet die to create a vellum envelope. I stamped it with watermark ink using the large clock face image from this set and embossed it in white embossing powder. The sentiment, also from this set, was embossed with gold embossing powder as were the numbers. They are from another fun new set called Number Time Trio. I used Rustic Cream cardstock and The Hands of Time dies, ohhhh, they are so beautiful (you'll be seeing them everywhere) to finish off my clock face.
I filled the vellum envelope with a few pink sequins and clipped a Sweet Blush tag inside, cut using the new Tremendous Tags die collection....love, love! Soft Stone grosgrain finishes off the front of this card.
I decided to finish the inside of this card and used the same elements. The clock image is stamped in Soft Stone and the numbers in Sweet Blush. The sentiment stamped on the Tremendous Tag is stamped in Smokey Shadow.
I love it when assigned a layout or mini-book as I often forget how much joy I get out of creating them. My little girl is a huge goof and I have the hardest time getting her to cooperate and give me a single smile, so when it happens, glory be! We have to celebrate :) It's time to bribe her again, but for this layout I used a couple of photos from her first day back to school this year. Time is going by so fast! Here she is a 4th grader and I am enjoying every moment. Dramatic? Yep...holy cow. But, I love her to bits, drama, goofball photos, and all.
I first began by using Aqua Mist cardstock as my base and stamped clock face images here and there using Aqua Mist ink, numbers in Sweet Blush. I used the Clock Face die and patterned paper and matted it to Rustic Cream cardstock cut using the Delightful Doilies die. I used hearts from the Framed Out #11 Mini stamp set in place of some of the numbers using Harvest Gold, Sweet Blush, and Aqua Mist ink. I then die cut the clock face again using Sweet Blush cardstock and used the circles cut from it for the numbers on my clock face and stamped them in Smokey Shadow. The center of the clock is a heart cut from the Framed Out #11 die collection, Hands of Time die collection next cut from patterned paper and embellished in the center with a Sweet Blush button. I used the Tremendous Tags die again and stamped my sentiment on it and stitched it to the bottom corner. These little tags are perfect for so many things.
My title, which ends with the sentiment shown above, is cut from Ocean Tides felt using the Block Alphabet Upper Die Collection.
This card uses left over bits from the layout above. I started with the clock face stamped in Aqua Mist and the numbers in Sweet Blush. I then layered on the left over hearts from the Framed Out #11 die collection. I used pattern paper to die cut the clock hands and then stamped my sentiment on a Tremendous Tag die cut from Sweet Blush ink. I then used the Number Time Trio dies to cut my numbers and perched them inside one of the hearts.
I tried a new-to-me technique for my border and stamped images from the Hands of Time set using watermark ink across a strip of Rustic Cream cardstock. I then used some pastel, shimmer chalk and rubbed chalk in varying colors over the ink to reveal the image beneath...very fun. I love the soft, watercolor effect. I then created a scallop border using the Medium Scallop Border die.
This fun card uses bright colors paired with the Hands of Time stamp set. I used the Limitless Layers: 2 1/2" Circles die collection and a scallop punch to create my flower. Images were stamped in Hibiscus Burst and Orange Zest.
The clock hands were die cut using Terra Cotta Tile cardstock and an Aqua Mist button was used in the center.
I used the Rosie Posie die and New Leaf cardstock for my flower stem. I created a playful sentiment using stamps from this set and a die cut number using the Number Time Trio die.
Lastly, this card combines the Hands of Time stamp set and coordinating dies with images from the Stitched Sentiments stamp set. I also used the Background Basics: Inspiration across the top of this card. I used Sweet Blush, Spring Moss, Autumn Rose, Soft Stone, and Dark Chocolate ink.
Patterned paper was used for my clock hands and a decorative center for the middle of my clock.
That does it for me today. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. The other designers have projects waiting to be shared with you as well.
