PTI Release in Review...

Hey there!  Have you been enjoying this month's Papertrey Ink release so far?  Lots of fun stuff, right?  Today I am here with the cards I made for the release in review.  We just got back from Disney last week so I only have a few cards to share but will be back with some more posts coming soon.

Here is my first card using the new set called Splat....


I used my marker spritzer to create the mist in the background and then stamped the splat in Raspberry Fizz.  I added in a little strip of white with the extra sentiment and then tucked some Smokey Shadow in behind.  I layered it all onto of some black and white striped washi to finish it off.

This next card uses another stamp from the awesome Wet Paint series....


I took a piece of Smokey Shadow and stamped the Circle Scribbles in black ink.  Then I dipped the congrats stamp in white acrylic paint and added in the sentiment.  After it dried, I layered it on a piece of black card stock and then mounted that using foam tape, on a black card base.

Do you LOVE the Phrase Play dies?  Well here i another one for you!  This one is SO super cute....


I used some Soft Gray striped paper for the die cut.  I used a piece of washi along the back side of it to keep all the letters in place.  Then I added in the Berry Sorbet star.  I stamped the sentiment after popping up the die cut on foam tape.

This next card showcases a fun little item that will be great for scrapbookers but so fun for card makers too.  It's called Clip Tips.


I made this little Hawaiian Shores clip and stamped a sentiment in black ink. Then I took some Glossy Accents and covered the whole clip to give it some shine.   I layered up some paper I made using the Journal Accessories stamp set along with the Simply Framed dies.  The little heart comes from the new Clip Tips set too.  

For this next card, I actually pulled out the Copics.  What?!  I know, right?  This girl doesn't color.  ever.  Until today...


She comes with her own die so cut out the ballerina shape and stamped the image on top.  I am pretty good at coloring solid images....so that is what i did.  My one creative detail here is the grass...3 different greens. Masked edge.  All by hand...yep, I did that.  :)  I added in the little flower and the sentiment last.

Have you seen this new GORGEOUS die?  It's one of 3 dies in a set called Delicate Details....


I used some American Crafts glitter paper to cut this out.  Then I added in a sentiment from Initial Thoughts from last months release.  I love how intricate this die is and how it looks with all that sparkle.

Ok that is all I have for you today!  Stayed tuned for some more cards coming soon!
