Introducing Take Three: Summer & Background Basics: Geometrics

Here we are!  The final day of the countdown!  So hard to believe!  I have some super exciting stamps and projects to introduce to you today.  Thanks for your patience with me as I took a little extra time to prepare everything for you!

There are TWO posts with TWO ways to win today, so be sure to scroll down all the way!

Alli's headshot
First up is a new set from Alli Miles.  The second addition to her Take Three stamp collection.  Each quarter we will be releasing a new addition based upon the current season.  When the year is up, you will have a small collection of stamps that can carry you through nearly any occasion or holiday, and all very reasonably priced.

The Take Three stamp sets always include six images and a handful of complementary sentiments. Between the six image stamps there are actually TWO images, each positioned three ways within three reverse block stamps.  By having images available facing left, right and centered, you have options to use them all together or individually.

The details.

  • Take Three: Summer will be available for purchase on May 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Take Three: Summer contains a total of 14 stamps (6 block images, 1 small accent flower and 7 sentiments).
  • The sentiments in the Take Three: Spring stamp set are interchangeable with this month's addition and all other Take Three sets in the future.

Melissa's headshot
The other set I have to introduce to you today is a fabulous background set from Melissa Bickford. Background Basics: Geometrics is an eclectic mix of different takes on basic geometric shapes.  They will prove to be a wonderful finishing touch to so many projects!

The details.

  • Background Basics: Geometrics will be available for purchase on May 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Background Basics: Geometrics contains a total of 3 background building strips.

Now that I have all the introductions out of the way, let's get to the fun stuff!

Color Spectrum Thank You Card
This is my favorite card of the bunch, so I just simply HAD to share it with you first since I am so excited about it!

I stamped the three different orientations of the blossom block image, each in a different color on white cardstock.  I used Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist and Spring Rain.  I then trimmed the SIDES of each block even with the edge of the stamp images and adhered them to another piece of white cardstock, butting right up against one another.  I then used a ruler and craft knife to trim along the bottom of the strip to eliminate the curved corners and allow this to look like one cohesive block.

Adding glitter
While trimming, I left about a half-inch of white cardstock on either end to use for glitter application later.  I applied Scor-tape to the ends and between the blocks and then sprinkled on glitter.

Focal front
The finished result is just SO pretty!  Reminds me a tad of a paint swatch, but in an artistic, sparkley kind of way!

Thank you closeup
The thank you sentiment on the front cover is from Inside & Out: Thank You and it's stamped with Hawaiian Shores ink. 

Focal side
Notice the use of the Woodgrain Impression Plate on the front cover?  I love the way this plate accents the design so well.  Plus, I'm always a fan of white on white like this, with just a little color pop!

This type of card could be done in a variety of colors so you could create your own little collection.  So fun to have on hand whenever you need to jot anyone a little note!

I accented the interior of the card a bit as well.  I stamped one of the floral blocks with Aqua Mist ink, then stamped the same thank you from the cover directly over the flower using Hawaiian Shores ink.  Underneath that I stamped one of my favorite sentiments from Inside & Out: Thank You using True Black ink.  Simple, but really jazzes the inside up!

Birdie Congrats card
My next card is a bit more vintage.  I was inspired by some colors I had seen together in a catalog.  Summer Sunrise, Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate & Vintage Cream!

I started with Vintage Cream cardstock and stamped it with various flowers from Beautiful Blooms II using Summer Sunrise and Spring Moss ink.  I then used the small daisy from Take Three: Summer, that coordinates with those found in the bird images, to add Dark chocolate accents.  I then swiped the edges with the Tea Dye Duo pads.  Last but not least, I ran the whole thing through my Big shot with the linen side of the Linen & Canvas Impressions Plate.

Vellum strip
You might have noticed the fun vellum sentiment strip on this card.  People are always asking me about how to adhere vellum.  For this particular application, I cut the strip twice as long as the card is wide and wrapped the ends of the strip around to the back.  I then applied adhesive just to the portions on the back.  This hides the adhesive and the portion on the front remains crisp and unaltered!

Overall focal point
This hides the adhesive and the portion on the front remains crisp and

Bird closeup 

The bird block image was stamped with Dark Chocolate ink and adhered with foam dimensionals.

Congrats closeup

In this photo I wanted to point out how the small dark chocolate flowers in the bird image are brought out by the matching dark chocolate flowers I stamped on the background paper.  This is a design tip implement pretty regularly and you might have success with it if you don't already do it in your own process.

A fun, retro card that nearly anyone would love to receive!

Sympathy card
Next, I have a sympathy card I created with a bit of white ink & Copic markers!

Stamped flowers
I started by stamping all three of the floral blocks onto kraft cardstock with Fresh Snow ink.

I used a YG95 Copic to color in the stems and leaves, and followed with R35 & R05 for the flower interiors.  One of my favorite things to do is color in the negative spaces of reverse images like this.  It adds such an unexpected touch and gives you more versatility with your images.

This sentiment that Alli included in Take Three: Summer is one of my favorites from the collection.  So much more heartfelt than just "with sympathy".

I used my handy black pen to utline the kraft focal point and accent the sentiment at the bottom of the card.  I love how bold and fresh this project turned out!  Don't you?

Birdie Card
This little piece is sentiment-free, but makes up for that with it's cuteness factor!

Cut out aqua bird
I stamped one of the bird blocks with both Sweet Blush & Aqua Mist ink onto Rustic White cardstock.  I carefully cut out the Aqua Mist bird with scissors.

Focal point closeup

I layered the Aqua Mist bird right on top of the appropriate area on the Sweet Blush image.  Using a glue pen, I also added a few glitter highlights!

Stamping grid
Did you notice the accent strip I used across the middle of the card?  That is actually STAMPED with the new grid image from Background Basics: Geometrics using Sweet Blush ink.  I love that I can now make this in any color combination I desire!

Bow closeup
For the ribbon, I used the same technique from my Lily of the Valley post and colored along each side of the 3/8"silk ribbon with Copic markers.  It looks so soft and delicate and really helps to tie in the color scheme.

Last but certainly not least, I used the new Sunshine Impression Plate on the Aqua Mist background.  I think this added detail totally made the project!

Thinking of You card straight
I have one last card for you today.  This one is using a bird block image once again (but I can't help it!  I love, LOVE these little birdies!)

Stamped mat stack
I started with the Mat Stack 2 die, cut from Rustic Cream cardstock.  I stamped across the center of it with another of the background building strips from Background Basics: Geometrics using Berry Sorbet ink.

Focal point closeup
The bird block was heat embossed with Filigree Clear embossing powder on Berry Sorbet cardstock.  I punched it out with the Super Jumbo Scalloped Square punch from Marvy.

On the Mat Stack, I ended up piercing a hole in the center of each of the circles that made up this pattern.  This little detail really added a lot to the project.

Thinking of You card
The background of the project is stamped with flowers from Beautiful Blooms II using Vintage Cream Ink.  The sentiment is from Up, Up & Away, stamped in True Black.

Aren't you just crazy about the possibilities that both of these sets have?  I know I will be getting a lot of use out of both of them!  We would love to hear your thoughts about both of these new sets.  As promised, I have a HUGE, over the top prize package for you to have a chance of winning!

    Your dies and embellish plates are such fantastic additions to the PT line! While cutting with scissors has its place, it is definitely neater and better looking when cutting with a die.

    I recently got a PTI order with my first die purchase. I am thrilled with them! Can’t wait to try an impression plate and add a few more dies to my supply closet.
