text & texture: roses + words to live by: courage

 All of the new May release items will be available through Papertrey Ink tomorrow, May 15th, at 10 pm ET.

Hello and welcome to the last day of Papertrey Ink’s release week countdown! We hope you have enjoyed all of the sneaks and projects that have been shown. Today we have a gorgeous last few sets to share with you..... Lizzie Jones' beautiful Corner Adorner: May and Glorious Globes: May AND the lovely Text & Texture: Roses and Words to Live By: Courage, both designed by the always fabulous Betsy Veldman!

My first project highlights the lovely Text & Texure: Roses, a gorgeous two-step all-over rose pattern.
This Soft Stone/Sweet Blush palette is quite subtle and creates an almost marble-like appearance. I tried many different combinations, varying the colors, and the order of the colors in the two-step stamping, etc. ..... all with beautiful results.

The pretty little blooms and scalloped frame from Forest Floor: Summer and the texture from Cover Plate: Hexagons adds a little interest behind the Words to Live By: Courage sentiment. And.... some pretty pearls add a bit of dimension.

STAMPS: Text and Texture: Roses, Forest Floor: Summer, Words to Live By: Courage, Cover Up: Hexagons
PAPER: Stamper's Select White, Sweet Blush
INK: Sweet Blush, Soft Stone, Spring Moss
DIES: Forest Floor: Summer, Noted: Simply Stitched A2 Vertical, Words to Live By: Courage
OTHER: tiny pearls

Next up..... some bolder colors and textures, with a Weathervane/Hawaiian Shores color combinations and lots of glitter-y black courtesy of the Nuvo glitter embossing powder in Glitter Noir. The pretty butterflies from A Bit More: Butterfly Blooms are also embossed and glittered, with a bit of Hawaiian Shores coloring on the wings.

Only one layer from Text & Texture: Roses was stamped, leaving room for the sentiment and petite butterflies on this 4.5" square card.

PAPER: Weathervane, Hawaiian Shores, Stamper's Select White, Fresh Snow Linen, True Black

Card #3 highlights just one of the lovely sentiment combinations from Words to Live By: Courage. The saturated colors (Pure Poppy/Cocoa Bean) work well on the Classic Kraft base, allowing you to focus on the sentiment and soft leaf-y die.

Lots of pretty color combinations can be created on Classic Kraft using the bolder colors, as a single stamp or as a two-step process.  Each varying combination is a chance to create a new look..... and there are more than a few lovelies on my craft desk to prove it!
