Papertrey Ink April Release - Day Five

simple impressions: celebrations kitthe new gray color name announcement!
 All of the April release items will be available through Papertrey Ink tomorrow, April 15th, at 10 pm ET.

Today Papertrey Ink is introducing a very exciting Make It Market Mini Kit from Betsy Veldman. The Simple Impressions: Celebrations kit includes everything a novice stamper needs to hit the ground running! It has all the basic necessities in one place so you can introduce your friends to this hobby we all love and make a genuine connection through crafting. It makes a wonderful gift for someone who has perhaps expressed an interest, but been afraid to take the plunge.
This kit is also perfect for busy stampers on the go who want to be able to grab a collection of supplies to take along on a trip, to a crafty get-together, or whenever you’d like to stay active away from home. You can easily create lots of cards for the most popular occasions – birthdays, graduations, babies, weddings, anniversaries. The stamp set and coordinating die collection will also be available separately.

My first card is created from the basic kit ingredients: floral stamps, birthday greeting, pre-printed (and perfectly A2 sized!) patterned paper, a few strategically placed sequins and ALL of the kit's ink colors (Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Green Parakeet and Aqua Mist + True Black).

The classic white envelope can be fancied up...... with your card/occasion/recipient in mind! 

My second card incorporates the coordinating Celebrations Kit dies, which are available separately. The cute Pure Poppy/Berry Sorbet candles make the perfect little shaker card, using the kit's sequins, a seam binding bow and a single floral button.  The Tag Sale #10 die is a nice addition and fits perfectly into the pinked rectangle of the Celebrations Kit patterned papers. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and helping to celebrate the April countdown! Be sure to check in on AmyBetsy, Dawn, HeatherKeewayLaurieLizzieMelissaStephanieLexie and Melissa B over at the Papertrey Ink BLOG to see their fabulous creations using these great new April Papertrey products.
