A New Launch.....'Ink To Paper'!!



Oh happy day..... the very first sneak peeks from the new Ink to Paper are coming your way! Ink to Paper is a new brand of Papertrey Ink, with an official launch on the Ink to Paper website on May 15th at 10 pm EST. Ink to Paper will offer new monthly product collections, in addition to many of you favorite Papertrey Ink staples, such as cardstock and inks. Please take a peek at the latest newsletter with more detailed information here.
So, are you ready to get your first look at the brand new Ink to Paper products?  Today we have three new sets to announce......  Nature's Backgrounds, Essential Sentiments, and Watercolor Backgrounds: Brushstrokes.

This first card has an abundance of white and bright, using the lovely Nature's Background, designed by Kara Yoder! With a plethora of beautiful floral and foliage images, there are loads of possibilities with these pretty images and matching dies! I've utilized the back of each of the stamps to create a colorful background and then stamped the outline image in black...... coordinating with the crisp black and white stripes from Bitty Big: True Black and the clean sentiment from another new set, Essential Sentiments.

The next two cards highlight the second new Kara Yoder design for Ink to Paper,  the Essential Sentiments and dies. And..... this is so appropriately titled because I can envision using these sentiments of so many projects and for so many occasions - yup, got 'em all covered. Although this sentiment stamp set was designed to coordinate with Nature's Background Essentials, the sentiments will work well with any design. 

The Watercolor Textures: Brushstrokes creates a beautiful backdrop for the crisp sentiments, which are framed/layered using the Folded Pocket Tag, Nesting Basics: Rectangles and Nesting Basics: Pierced Rectangles. In cool shades of Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, Hibiscus Burst and Summer Sunrise, the popped up 'Celebrate'.

For the next card, I've also used another of the Watercolor Textures: Brushstrokes stamps as my background, this time a Spring Rain/Blueberry Sky/Aqua Mist/Hawaiian Shores combination.

A sprinkling of sparkle-y jewels gives both cards a bit of added interest, while still being completely clean and simple (and oh so easy to duplicate).

My last two cards use the Watercolor Textures: Brushstrokes, from the fabulous Jennifer Campbell! Once you start playing with this set, it's hard to stop...... creating patterns and textures in an array of hues. This Raspberry Fizz/Hibiscus Burst/Summer Sunrise/Green Parakeet combination is just so cheery!

After creating the pretty striped pattern, I cut a few 1/4" strips, added a petite bouquet of florals and foliage, some of my favorite embossed polka dots and a nice crisp sentiment for this 'thinking of you' card, which coordinates beautifully with version #2. 

And..... the three new Ink to Paper offerings are just so lovely together! With the Watercolor Textures: Brushstrokes as my background, the pretty posies from Nature's Background Essentials and the clean sentiments form Essential Sentiments, these three sets combine just beautifully.

 Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'll be back tomorrow with more peeks!
