Papertrey Ink January Release - Day Three!

Glorious globes: january
+ Sentiment staples: just a note
+ bold borders: arabesque

Yay!! It's Day 3 of Papertrey Ink's January 2019 release and there is much more to share with you! It's a Lizzie Jones kinda day, as she is introducing the newest addition to the Glorious Globes line of stamps/dies, a new Sentiment Staples, 'Just A Note' (with oodles of perfect little accessorizing sentiments) AND another great design in the fantastic Bold Borders series - Bold Borders: Arabesque!

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

A snippet of watercolored paper was the jumping off point for this little love card, using the new Glorious Globes: January, with lots of pretty blues and aquas! The Bitty Big: Classic Kraft stripes act as the perfect 'neutral' background.


To pick up on the 'makes the world go round' sentiment, which is stamped in Cocoa Bean, I've layered my card front in the same hue. A few petite, watercolored hearts and a bit of rustic twine are the finishing touches.

My second card incorporates the most beautiful Bold Borders: Arabesque frame and die cut 'you', florals from the new Let's Fiesta, and just one of the sentiments included in the Sentiment Staples: Just A Note stamp set.

There are lots of brightly colored flowers.... contrasting with all of that lovely white space, the bold red border and crisp sentiment.

I wanted to try something a little different with the rectangular Bold Borders: Arabesque frame....... cutting it down a bit  and re-framing it to create this 4.75" square card. 

Well, that's is for me today! Many thanks for stopping by and helping to celebrate more of the January countdown! Be sure to check in on Amy, Betsy, Dawn, Kelly, Laurie, Lizzie, Melissa B and Stephanie over at the Papertrey Ink BLOG to see their fabulous creations using these great new January Papertrey products. 
Have a wonderful day!
