081107_beautiful_girl_cardOur floral set contains several images, all made to work well together so you are able to customize your artwork to suit both your needs and style.  This card uses some patternd paper that I created using the various bits and pieces.  Notice the fun polka-dot center for the flowers!

081107_transparent_flowerWe will also be carrying these fun transparent flowers from Maya Road.  They are made out of a material similar to the plastic used in creating stencils. 

081107_sponged_flowerI discovered that if you rub Palette ink onto them in a circular motion, you can "dye" them the color of your choice.  You know I am all about versatility!

081107_stamped_flowerAmoung other things, you can also stamp on them or back them with patterned paper.  Can you say limitless possibilities?!?!

081107_cb_plate_used_as_blockOur Halloween set is packed full of fun images too, 30 to be exact!  The four I used on the main part of this project will probably be your favorite, though!  Check it out!  A larger than life jack-o-lantern face!  And guess what!?!?  They are ALL seperate, allowing you to arrange them tightly for a smaller application, or far apart for a larger project.  You can stamp them individually if you like.  OR you can take Emily Giovanni’s advice, and stamp them all at once by using a Cuttlebug plate as your block.

081107_pumpkin_paint_canSo this is the little trick-or-treat paint can I made.  I loved how I was able to just insert the cardstock inside the clear can and not worry about adhering it.  Oh, and by the way, we’ll be carrying the clear paint cans too, in three sizes to boot!

081107_spooky_sweets_tag Here is a close-up of the tag (which uses the oval Nestabilities dies).  "Spooky" is a seperate image from "sweets" so you can bring together two different colors from your project easily.  There is also a "treats" stamp that coordiantes as well.  Both "sweets" & "treats" fit perfectly between the tails of the p & y in Spooky!  Ahhh, perfection!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow!  This party is just getting started!  I have some more fun projects to share!

    WOW – these projects are already tempting me. Your sentiments are my favorite thing about PaperTrey – they are always so clean and easy to read but also very fun and trendy at the same time. I love the words so much that the images are always just a bonus when I buy the sets!
