PTI July Release in Review...

Are you so excited about this month's PTI release?  Lots of fun stuff, right?  I have a few more cards to share today.  I hope you enjoy them!

This first one was so easy to make.  I stamped the flower image and I colored.  Yes, I actually used my Copic markers!  I heat embossed the sentiment and then added some texture with the Linen Impression plate...


Stamps: Botanical Blocks II, Keep it Simple: Thinking of You
Ink: Tuxedo Memento, Versamark
Paper: True Black, Stampers Select White
Misc: Purple and Green Copics, Filigree White Embossing Powder, Linen Impression Plate


I am in love with all of the Phrase Play dies.  They are so much fun and are great for a quick and easy card.  I cut out the die in kraft and then added in the "YOU" from the Headline Alphabet Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the PP stamp set on the bottom and mounted it all on the patterned paper base....


Stamps: Phrase Play #6
Paper: Kraft, Ocean Tides, Stampers Select White, Misc Studio Calico Patterned Paper
Ink: Amuse Slate
Misc: Phrase Play #6 Die, Headline Alphabet Die


This next set is SO much fun!  We all love the Wet Paints sets and dies, well now its complete with an alphabet set too!  I was able to make my own custom card front and let me tell you...these letters are SO easy to line up.  I added in a heart from the Heart Trio dies to finish it off....


Stamps: Wet Paint Alphabet
Paper: Smokey Shadow, Pure Poppy, Stampers Select White
Ink: Provincial Gray Fresh Ink
Misc: Heart Trio die, White Gel Pen


I kinda love this next card.  I want to use Lemon Tart on everything right now and this striped paper is my favorite!  I used the new August birthday sentiment and then brightened up the whole card with the pops of yellow....


Stamps: Birthday Classics: August
Paper: Stampers Select White, Soft Stone, Lemon Tart Patterned Paper
Ink: Amuse Slate Ink
Misc: Lemon Tart Saddle Stitch Ribbon


Big Ticket Additions... a must have!  I am in love with this simple "hello".  I stamped it on vellum in Versamark and then heat embossed it.  I trimmed around the outline and matted it with the Big Ticket Die.  I layered it on a Circle Scribble die (another favorite).  The base is stamped in a fun little image from Note Niblets.  I finished the card off by adding in some small sequins....


Stamps: Big Ticket Additions, Note Niblets
Paper: Soft Stone, Stampers select White, Lemon Tart, Vellum
Ink: Fresh Snow, Versamark
Misc: Big Ticket Addition Dies, Circle Scribble Dies, Filigree White Embossing Powder, Sequins


This last CAS card was super easy to make.  I cut the 'hello" out of some patterned paper and layered in onto some Lemon Tart.  I stamped the sentiment from the new Banner Sentiments and then folded up the banner for a little 3D look.  Last, I added a wooden heart for some more detail...


Stamps: Banner Sentiments
Paper: Stampers Select White, Lemon Tart, Studio Calico patterned paper (misc)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Misc: Hello die, Banner die, Studio Calico wooden heart


So that is it for Papertrey Ink's July Release.  What do you think?  I really appreciate your stopping by today.  Thank you so much for all your sweet comments!  Stop by the rest of the girls to see their amazing projects....
