It's hard to believe that this release is nearly over! Day 13 is here! One more day until the big release party! I can hardly wait!
I've got two new stamp sets to introduce to you today. They each have very unique attributes, so I am dedicating one entire post to each set (so be sure to scroll down to the post below AND down to the third post declaring today's challenge!)
First, I wanted to go into details about Dawn McVey's new set, Studio Style. This is an absolutely ADORABLE set dedicated to something we all know and love, CRAFTING! And specifically featuring ACTUAL Papertrey product inspired images!!! Who would appreciate a handmade card more than the friends you share this paper crafting passion with?
- Studio Style will be available for sale on February 15th.
- It will retail for $15.
- It contains a total of 16 stamps (5 images and 11 sentiments.)
I don't know about you, but it is incredibly exciting to have a set dedicated to just this lil' hobby of ours! It includes the PERFECT sentiments for giving little goodies to your crafting friends, whether you meet with them regularly in person or you've only met online via your favorite stamping forum.
Let me show you a few fun little uses for this cute little set!!!
I colored the jar & buttons with various Copic markers to reflect my desired color scheme. It is cut out and popped up on foam dimensionals on top of a Pure Poppy cardstock strip stamped with Polka Dot Basics II using Versamark ink. And I can't forget the sentiment! This along with many others in the set are one-liners that we can totally associate with!
When you look at this card from the side, you get a little hint of what kinds of surprises lay inside!
A sheet of embellishments attached to Clear Cardstock with glue dots, ready to be applied to a paper crafting project! I've seen both Dawn & Michelle doing this a lot on their blogs and have been wanting to try it for some time. And there couldn't possibly be something more perfect to tuck inside a card for a crafty friend. Notice, I repeated the same Pure Poppy strip at the top of the embellishment sheet. I also added the sentiment… "Wishing you a day to get your craft on!" to the top of the sheet. The embellishments themselves were created with a few flower punches, polka dot paper from Pretty Pastels, lemon tart cardstock and Pure Poppy buttons & rustic jute twine.
I love, LOVE, love this ribbon spool image that Dawn drew. Notice it has five of Papertrey's own ribbons stacked up on top of each other (I would recognize that Bitty Dot & Stitched ribbon anywhere!) I colored it in with Copic markers.
On the bottom portion of the focal point, I stamped some various buttons from the set to fill in space using Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst inks. I punched out the button "holes" using a handheld 1/8" circle punch.
I then was able to go back in and knot a little rustic jute button twine through each stamped button. I love the way this turned out! Notice the pattern in the background? It's from Background Basics: Petal Power. I added it with Raspberry Fizz ink on top of the Hibiscus Burst card base.
Our round clear top tins are great for presenting little crafting doodads to your friends. A simple strip of patterned paper around the tin, tied together with a bit of ribbon creates the perfect presentation.
This last project is quick and simple, super easy to replicate. I stamped the background with squares from Quilter's Sampler using Vintage Cream ink. That set pairs perfectly with the Studio Style set for even more options.
For the focal point, the button jar is stamped with Aqua Mist ink. I then was able to add the 'Thank you, crafty friend" sentiment to the jar with True Black ink, kind of looking like a label on the jar. Pair this card with a stack of pretty fabric for someone special!
So what do you think of this sweet little set? Do you have a friend or two (or three or four!) that you could see yourself putting together a few of these goodies for? Well, today's your chance to do that AND possibly win a prize for your random act of kindness!
