Papertrey Ink January Release - Day One!


Good morning and welcome to Papertrey Ink's January 2019 release - Day 1! Oh.... SO  MUCH more goodness to share with you, AND just wait until you see what the rest of the amazing Papertrey Ink team has created!
Today we have the pleasure of introducing two new designs from Lizzie Jones..... the latest Corner Adorner: January and another great design in the Nesting Basics collection - Nesting Basics: Pierced Ovals. Next up is Betsy Veldman's pretty Let's Fiesta - which also coordinates so beautifully with her new Shape Shifters: Square 4 dies! 

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

I have the pleasure of introducing the new Corner Adorner: January stamps and dies..... a beautiful set, full of lovely sprinkles, to highlight your cards/tags/envelopes, and the perfect little
'celebrate' sentiment. There are two larger 'sprinkle' images, which create your corners, and two smaller images to fill in, or to use as a more subtle look.

I've complimented the Corner Adorner: January with shades of Soft Stone, Aqua Mist and Weathervane, and the balloons from Birthday Balloons stamp set/dies - all arranged on the Tag Sale : Quilted die. There's lots of silver embossing, with a snippet of silver twine and a few clear sequins to pump up the sparkle!

My second project highlights the beautiful Shape Shifters: Square 4 dies. Oh so pretty in any combination...... on these two cards I've utilized the two center dies, the center cut out and the delicate embossed frame, to show off the beautiful images/dies from the new Let's Fiesta! 

I've kept things very clean and simple, stamping the florals in shades of Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz and Green Parakeet.... all arranged in the adorable little two-step basket.

And..... because I could not keep playing with the new Let's Fiesta, one card became two! It's SO easy, and fun, to mix and match all of the beautiful elements!

My last project is, once again, a CAS example in two shades of pink. I've lined up the Shape Shifters: Square 4 die diagonally on my Hibiscus Burst card front, and made three passes with my die cutting machine. I then lined my card front in Raspberry Fizz for additional color (and support) and added two thin strips of Raspberry Fizz to frame my die cut images.

A simple tag (from Bite Size Tags) is stamped with just one of the pretty medallion images from Let's Fiesta, along with the appropriate sentiment (embossed in white)!

A few enamel dots, a little hot pink eyelet and a bit of pink/white twine finish of this CAS example.

Thank you so much for joining me today! Be sure to check out today's introductory post over on the Papertrey Ink blog and then check in on Ashley, Betsy, Dawn, Kelly, Laurie, Lizzie, Melissa Phillips, Melissa Bickford and Stephanie to see how they've used these great new January  products. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you tomorrow!

This time of year is always dreary outside, so your use of color is so welcome. I adore your card with the basket of flowers. It is fresh and charming and has me wanting to go buy some flowers.
