………………………………………………………………………………………
So there it all is for you to finally see!  The July patterned paper
collection entitled "Chocolate Remix".  The name suits everything
perfectly!  "Chocolate" because it contains monochromatic Dark
Chocolate patterns.  "Remix" because three of the papers use images
from some of our older more popular sets, Butterfly Kisses, Text Boxed & Green Thumb!

One of the fun things about the papers utilizing older images is that I purposely designed the papers in a reverse format so you could add color to them using the coordinating stamps and ink. (click the image to have a better look.)  For my project today, I decided to use the 6×6 Butterfly Kisses paper along with Spring Moss palette ink.  I simply stamped the small butterfly from Butterfly Kisses on top of each of the cream butterflies (these papers are printed on vintage cream paper, just like last month!  Yummy!)  I just LOVE the way this worked out!!!  It is so inspiring to have the opportunity to make the patterned papers you want, no matter what your color coordination need be!  It’s like having a little secret for creating the perfect one sheet wonder!

..,.I hope you are excited to be able to pair these patterned papers along with some of the stamp sets you may already have in your stamping collections.  It is a great collection of papers that you will be able to pair with all kinds of amazing colors and enjoy it’s versatility.

EDITED TO ADD:  I have received a lot of questions about WHERE the butterfly came from that is used in my project… is it a die cut?  Perhaps a punch?  I have to say neither!  I stamped the outline image from Butterfly Kisses onto Spring Moss cardstock and cut it out.  It is a fairly simple shape, so it is easy to do.

………………………………………………………………………………………

Then I flipped the butterfly over and added the dotted butterfly overlay image to it using white ink.  I love how this technique expands my options even further since there is no outline included on the finished side of the accent.  Three rhinestones added a bit of glam to the center.  One other trick I have is that after cutting a shape out like this that has a lot of curves, I like to go over the edges with a file or sanding block.  Any minuscule discrepancies easily disappear and I am able to blend the edges seamlessly together.

…………………………………………………………………………………..
One other side note… to confirm, these papers are printed on cream colored paper, rather than white.  I loved the end result so much last month, I decided to do it again this month!  Also, this paper collection will be available in both 6×6 & 12×12, with the 12×12 being twice the scale of the paper I used in today’s project, offering even more options for your design work!

    Wow! I’m the one who asked about Old Time Favorite pattern packs of paper!

    I love how you have incorporated several older sets into one pack. The butterflies is going to be my FAVE!!! I’ll ask now if you will ever consider making a set of paper in multi colors of one or two designs … ooohhh .. butterfly kisses paper in a multi-color pack!

    I sure hope you are NOT going to run out of these yummy selections this month!

    Thanks for all that you do!

    Angela says:

    What a beautiful card – I love the combination of shapes and patterns. I have a couple of questions: how did you make the scallop at the bottom of the card (it seems larger than a scissors). Also, would it be possible to include the card dimensions in the Supplies and Tools section?

    Thank you so much for sharing your ideas, thoughts and ultimately, your designs. I’ve only recently discovered PTI and it’s quickly become a favorite because of the combination of product and demonstration.

    What Angela said! It would be great if card sizes could be mentioned in samples (from the DT too, pretty please) These samples are lovely, and the tips are so helpful–especially to those of us who are fairly new to all this. I’m striving for the level of precision you exhibit, Nicole, and so the little expert tips are incredibly helpful (in addition to LOTS of practice)! Thanks so much for all you do.
