Papertrey Ink April Release - Day Four

Corner adorner: April
+Words to live by: work + shape shifters:square 1
+dapper chap + shape up: tuxedo gift card die
+ plaid stencils

Yes...... we are in the home stretch and you've seen almost all of the fabulous new April 2018 products from Papertrey Ink! There's LOTS more inspiration on view today as we present Betsy Veldman's Words To Live By: Work stamps/dies,  as well as the newest Corner Adorner design, Dapper Chap,  the a-mazing Shape Up: Tuxedo Gift Card die and some plaid stencils,  all by Lizzie Jones. Oh, and another fabulous Shape Shifters die, Shape Shifters: Square 1!

Today I have the pleasure of creating with  Corner Adorner: April, Words To Live By: Work and Shape Shifters; Square 1!

All of the new stamp sets and products will be available to purchase on April 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.

Ahhh.... lots of pretty spring colors in a Fresh Snow linen/Pale Peony/Berry Sorbet/Simply Chartreuse combination for this first project. Those pretty blooms are from another new set, Botanical Bounty, along with a few blooms from last month's Stitching Garden.

The lovely Shape Shifters: Square 1 die is backed with a layer of vellum to soften the look of this pretty floral vignette.  Although a bit hard to see, each of the little floral trios has a tiny jewel center, adding an element of sparkle and dimension.

And, just a bit more from the new Noted: Simply Stitched A1 Vertical dies to accentuate the stitched square frame from Shape Shifter: Square 1.

My second project is decidedly more masculine, incorporating another of the new Bitty Big colors, stamps and dies from the new Words to Live By: Work and the new Shape Shifters: Square 1. 

Lots of layering goin' on here in this Smokey Shadow/Scarlet Jewel color combination and just a snippet of twine to bring your focus in on the little sentiment banner.

And, lastly, a few pretty sentiment combinations from Words To Live By: Work on both a card and coordinating tag.

Here you see another of the newest Bitty Big colors, and the new Words To Live By stamps/dies in combination with a few of the new Fence Line: Spring stamps and the new Noted: Simply Stitched A2 Vertical/Shape Shifter: Square 1 dies.

  1. The colour palettes on your cards are so delightful, and you've showcased the new products beautifully.

  2. As usual, a great trio of well-designed cards. I love the first one particularly, probably because I'm so desperate for spring--the colors are perfection!

  3. Incredible designs Michelle, beautiful work!!
