Ink to Paper June Release - Day 3


Welcome back to day three of the June Ink to Paper release posts!  There are some fabulous new products being released this month and for the next several days we will be sharing projects created with them. 

All of the new products will be available June 15th at 10 pm ET!

Today we are sharing projects created with the following new items:  It's a Sign: Beautiful, Geometrix dies, and Simply Sweet: Thanks.

Oh,  there's SO much to show you today, starting with the amazing 'It's a Sign: Beautiful, designed by Melissa Bickford. There are 23 stamped images/sentiments to mix and match and the coordinating dies. However, the real showstopper is the lovely wood-grained frame, which looks fantastic in so many ways....  masculine/feminine, in any hue, vertical or horizontal. 

This first project incorporates a Classic Kraft inked frame and florals/greenery in shades of Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Orange Fizz and Pinefeather. The Classic Kraft card base and matching envelope help to give this card a bit of a 'rustic' feel.

This next project is a study in Vintage Cream, allowing the pretty detail of the Geometrix: Rectangle die/frame to highlight and define the sentiment and florals sprays. I've embossed the center piece of the Geometrix: Rectangle frame (with my favorite polka dots!) for a bit of added interest/dimension.

There are lots more pretty blooms from It's a Sign: Beautiful in shades of Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet and Enchanted Evening, all with Nuvo Gloss dotted centers, surrounding this simple, two tone sentiment. I love, LOVE that this stamp set allows you to mix and match all of the lovely sentiments with such ease!

Be sure to fancy up the coordinating Vintage Cream envelopes with all of those bright, pretty blooms. It's such a nice way to add more color (and happiness)!

This next duo is all about masculine/unisex designs..... and I never, ever had enough of these! This coordinating pair is incorporates another of Jennier Campbell's Geometrix dies, this time using the hexagon shape. 

I've used darker hues (Enchanted Evening, Simply Chartreuse, Ocean Tides, Stormy Sea) and lots of hexagon die cuts to create the card fronts. 

A bit of texture was added using embossing folders (diagonal stripes), stitched frames, rainstones and glitter-y embossing powder. 

Ink to Paper's 'Celebrating You' stamp set (May 2019 release) provided all of the sentiments, with the balloon/balloon string images from the new Jennifer Campbell designed 'More Of: Celebrating You'.

My last design, from Melissa Bickford's 'Simply Sweet', creates a 5" square card in layered shades of Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise and New Leaf.

There's a lovely circular floral frame included in the coordinating Sweet Thanks die set, and I've reinforced that circular theme using Papertrey Ink's Nesting Basics: Pierced Circles dies.
I know...... that floral frame does kind of gets lost in this sea of  popped up blooms, but it's there!!

In addition to  the pretty little florals, Sweet Thanks also has a plethora of thanks themed sentiments. However, in this case, I've chosen to use just the colorful block letters as my greeting. 

We hope that you've enjoyed today's new June Ink to Paper introductions and will take a peek at each of the DT's creations. And.... please stay tuned for more to come tomorrow!
Many thanks for stopping by!

I really like that frame and the pretty flowers. I tell myself I have plenty of pretty flowers, but these are calling out to me! I also like the Geometric dies. Shirley is right, your use of color is exceptional!
