It's that time of the month again!!! Countdown time for the monthly Papertrey Ink new product release! I feel blessed to have another set to offer through them this month and the previews start today! Everything is available to purchase on May 15th. :) Here we go...
Let freedom Ring is a set of 18 images that are geared to a patriotic theme. I am excited to have been able to include some sentiments that make it possible to use the set for a few other celebrations too! I know that as a consumer I like flexibility in what I buy... I like options. This is something that I think about a lot when designing a set.This set is also a great price at only $15!
I thought I would start out with a really patriotic ensemble to share with you. You saw one of the firecrackers in the sneak peek... but there is two! I'm really pleased with the ease in which they can be stamped... and masking is a cinch because of the straight edges.
I've included some nostalgic patriotic sentiments in the set... God bless America is such a great song by Irving Berlin... I just knew I had to include the sentiment. I did separate it into two different stamps for more versatility and color use.
Aren't these little gift tins adorable! a perfect tabletop gift for guests at a 4th of July BBQ or even something you can drop off to a friend. We live in a semi-military town so a gift like this would be common all year long.
I wanted to create a folk-artsy card to finish the ensemble and Kraft cardstock lends itself so well to that style! Once again, I masked the sections of the cardstock to create the flag like pattern. You can see I have a nice star, a unique stripe image and a star cluster image that I used to make the pattern. I love masking!
One little trick that I've been doing lately is sponging my white sewing tread after it's been sewn on a project. It looks natural and saves me time from switching out my thread!
Here is the finished ensemble!
So what are your first thoughts on Let freedom Ring? How do you celebrate patriotic holidays? If you aren't American... share a little about your country's patriotic holidays... I'd love to hear all about it!
Remember... for the next 5 days I will have something fun to share with you using Let freedom Ring! See you tomorrow and thanks for poppy-ing by!
