The Day After…

By June 15, 2011The Day After

As tradition holds, I like to share some of my favorite DT projects from this release the morning after.  I hope some of the art I selected leaves you as inspired as it did me!

Betsy Veldman made me weak in the knees with this project using Mehndi Medallion.  I love all of the layering she did with the images…and the color scheme?  LOVE!  The large Think Big Favorites #5 sentiments across the middle is the perfect finishing touch!

Danielle Flanders used It's a Jungle Out There to make this super girly card.  You goota love the black stripes paired up with that beautiful Raspberry Fizz & Pure Poppy Damask Designs paper!  I adore how she has the zebra coming out of the decorative frame…such a clever use!

Dawn McVey created this simple pocket card with more of the Damask Designs paper and Gracious Vases.  I thought it was so clever the way she cut the top of the pocket with the Edgers #1 die.  Such a classy touch.  

Debbie Olson made her own version of a onesie card with the new Shape Up Series: Onesie die.  I love how she added the adorable little giraffe from Sweet Baby to the front.  The cute little tag she added with the Tiny Tags die is the perfect accent for the little guy!

Erin Lincoln wowed me with this flashcard style project pairing up It's a Jungle Out There and Fruit Fusion: Apple.  As she has shown here, it is totally appropriate for a child's birthday, but it would also work nicely as a teacher's thank you!

Heather Nichols went flashcard style as well for this series of projects which I immediately fell head over heels about!  They look so realistic and effortless!  The simple design would make it easy to mass produce them as a gift or to keep on hand for last minute notes.

Jessica Witty and the clever girl that she is used the Alphablocks die to create a window for Gracious Vases to peek through.  I love how she creates a "window box" to hold the sentiment!  And the watercoloring she did on the flowers is so beautiful, making the flowers just pop from the page!

Lisa Johnson made this fantastic card with Daydreamer.  I love how she split the sentiment to create visual balance.  Not to mention, her color scheme happens to be one of my all time favorites right now!

Maile Belles amazed me with the way she paired Think Big Favorites #5 with Gracious Vases on this project.  Such a simple concept to layer them like this, but so striking!

Melissa Phillips paired the Picket Fence die with the flowers and sentiments from Tag-its #5 on this amazing project.  Her felt flowers cut with the Buttoned-up #2 die are just stunning and I love the way she added the adhesive pearls to the cloud die-cuts as well.

Michelle Wooderson made this ultra-feminine guitar using Rhythm & Soul.  I just LOVE the floral paper used to paper piece the guitar!  So clever!  The "U Rock" sentiment from Say it with Style was just the perfect complement to all of the other elements on the card!

All of these girls manage to *wow* me time and time again with each and everything they create!  I am so incredibly thankful for them and all the hard work that they dedicate each month!  Now, go through the projects above one more time and pick a small attribute, a technique, a color scheme, a layout and go into your stamping space and create something fabulous!  Go on!  You know you want to!  And be sure to link your creation in the comments section so I can see!  Or, be sure to throw the rock-n-roll technique in there somewhere and enter your creation into our Make It Monday contest for this week!

Have a fantastic rest of the week!

    Congrats to the entire Papertrey Team for yet another stellar release. All of your work is so amazing and your abilities to think outside the box is incredible. I am not ordering anything from this release at this point, because Canada Post is taking an unwelcome holiday. I couldn’t bear the thought of my PTI goodies being lost in transit. Hopefully they will be back on the job soon so I can get my ‘greedy’ little hands on all of this month’s fabulous treats.
