PTI Release in Review...

Hey there crafty friends!  I have lots of cards to share today for PTI's Release in Review, so hang in there with me!  There are so many new fun sets that are very versatile.

This first card uses the new stamps and dies from the Superhero set.


I used all of the fun word dies and made the wide faux embossed background.  I added in a circle with some Raspberry Fizz and Orange zest blended in and then stamped the superheroes right on top.  I added in the black strips of card stock behind the circle to ground the image.


I stamped the sentiment and attached it to the inside and then made a matching superhero mask to go with it....


To make the mask a little more sturdy, I added 2 "arms" to each side....


And then attached them to the back of the mask....


I love this next card using the new dies from Center Style: Feminine to make this card, along with a  little Rosie Posie.  The sentiment comes from the set called Watercooler Talk. 


This next card is from Maile's new set called Southwestern Style.  I sorta geeked out over it.  I love it!  I just stamped this lined image in a pattern with a fun color combo and then added in a sentiment over the top.....


I made a little polaroid card using the new Petite Places: City Station.  I used the Monthly Moments: Instant Photo 1 die for this card....


I made a little scene and then turned it into a card....


Center Style: Masculine is a fun new set with awesome dies.  The set is called Masculine....but I went with a more Feminine card.  I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor set in the center to finish it off...


I adore the new Enclosed: Star set and dies.  I made this super easy card with a bright color combo...


If you look really close...it was hard to photograph....I used Hello Sunshine to stamp the rays in the background.  I used the Misti to line up the colored images inside the star so they are pretty much perfect.  Then I added in the white die over the top....


I made this next card with the new Text Style: Dad die.  I cut the frame from around the outside and then cut the banner out of the new 3 Piece Suit paper pack.


Once I had the words all lined up, I took some Press n' Seal to pick up the whole thing.  I added some liquid glue to the backs of the letters and then pressed the whole thing down to the card front, attaching the entire thing in one press.  So easy!


You can see I also scored the background of the card every 1/2".  This is probably my favorite thing to do to a card....


I hope you made it through this long post!  To see more of the Papertrey Ink Release, stop over to Nichole's blog for more info! So now that you have seen it all, whats on your list?
