Hi everybody, welcome to our new feature What do I do with this? For this challenge our designers will get to try out some of these new tools and share the projects they created using them. We’ve got some fun, new things coming to the Papertrey Ink store and our designers will show you how to use them so you’ll be comfortable incorporating them into your card-making and gift-giving. Stay tuned for exciting and creative things coming your way! We want to share what our designers love with you, and this gives you a first-hand look into their crafty-faves!
Let’s get started!
The Cover Plate: Birthday Die is such a fabulous die to use as a cover for an ink blended background!! The possibilities of colors for a background for a BIRTHDAY are endless! A bonus? Your background doesn’t have to be perfect……the cover die covers the imperfections! This combination uses Distress Oxide inks on Bristol Smooth Cardstock. The ink just glides and blends so well on this paper! A separate panel was also ink blended with the same colors and the cover plate was die cut from this. The sentiment from inside of the die was hand trimmed from the frame and stars and added over the white Cover Plate: Birthday Die. As finishing touches, rainstones were added across the card. What is fun about clear rainstones is that they take on the colors of the cardstock behind them but also add dimension and shine!
INK: Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks
OTHER: Rainstones, Shimmer Spray
