Papertrey Ink August Release - Day Three!

Words to Live by: Gratitude
+ Text & texture: leaves
+ seasonal borders: Autumn
+ shape shifters: circle 3 die

Yay!! It's Day 3 of Papertrey Ink's August 2018 release and there is much more to share with you! It's a Betsy Veldman kinda day.... with introductions of THREE of Betsy's newest stamp sets  - Words To Live By: Gratitude, Text & Texture: Leaves, Seasonal Borders: Autumn PLUS another fabulous Shape Shifters die to add to your collection - the NEW Circle 3 design!!

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on August 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.

Today, I have the pleasure of introducing the newest in the Words To Live By series, which is all about expressions of gratitude, as well as the amazing two-step Text & Texture: Leaves set - just perfect for those fall and/or nature-themed creations.

This Ocean Tides/Weathervane/Pinefeather combination is subtle, yet has nice depth when using both stamp layers, the new Words to Live By: Gratitude stamps/die and a few embellished tags. 

My second project highlights some beautiful greens (Green Parakeet/Simply Chartreuse), accented with a bit of gold embossing and twine. 

A bit of layering, using the Bold Borders: Diagonal die, a little texture from Noted: Simply Stitched A2 Vertical die and a snippet of vellum help to create this gratitude filled card.

The Text & Texture: Leaves stamps are beautiful.... whether you stamp them separately, or together (in which case you'll have a whole pile of lovely leaves once you start trying to find the 'best' color combinations!).

My last project is a contrast in Pure Poppy and Classic Kraft, using just one of the Text & Texture: Leaves stamps.... such a quick and easy way to create card fronts in a rainbow of colors!

I've added just a little texture.... using the Pierced Feature Frames die, some great twine (another Tuesday Morning buy!) and my favorite polka dot embossing.

The lovely font of the delicate 'gratitude' die is so pretty, and adds just the right bit of additional dimension. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and helping to celebrate the August countdown! Be sure to hop on over to the Papertrey Ink Blog to check in on Betsy, Dawn, Heather, Laurie, Lizzie, Melissa PMelissa B and Steph to see their fabulous creations using some of the latest and greatest new August Papertrey products. You will surely be inspired!!
Have a wonderful day and I'll see you tomorrow!

Michelle, today’s post is one of my favorites. Not only do I love the richness of Fall, but these cards are such a gorgeous variety using similar stamps. AMAZING work! ❤️

I haven't purchased any of the text & texture stamp sets yet but you're post today is luring me in. So so pretty.

It is hard to choose the favorite of your cards. All are beautiful. But I think the red on kraft really stands out to me.

Your colour palettes are so lovely. Red is my least favourite colour, but your last card with Pure Poppy and Kraft is outstanding. Thanks for the inspiration.
