Ahhh... it's the final day for the April 2010 Papertrey Ink release countdown! WOW! It's been quite the ride hasn't it! What are you the most excited about this month??? I would be in so much trouble if I weren't on the team!
Make sure to head over to the Papertrey Ink release party to say "Hi!" and to chat about all the fun this month! (The party starts at 10pm EST /7pm PST on the 14th.)
I thought I would just re-post the details of the POPPYprints products that are being released this month through Papertrey Ink...
- Chair-ished- $15
- A Little Argyle- $24
- On My Couch Die Collection-$8
- Argyle Impression Plate- $16
Here are a few last things I've made using these products!
Yes, another Christmas project. (I'm seasonally confused because of publication calls! LOL!) I made the pattern using A Little Argyle though... so had to share.
I used the smallest Dashed line and Solid Argyle group images together then filled in using the smallest diamond image using Raspberry Fizz ink.
I love using colors that are unique for Christmas projects! This totally retro color combo is very hot right now. There is a total era vibe going on here... can you feel it? 80's! hee hee! I could have gone neon but I got sick of neon back in the 80's and cant make myself go there again. LOL!
I also used A Little Argyle on the Kraft background. (the black strip on the side uses the woodgrain impression plate then is inked with white.) Total Boy card? Well guess what? This is for my Daughter who played BBALL this year! She's not girly and will love this too!
Did you notice how the Basket Ball fit's perfectly in the scallop portions of the Large Scallop Die? (Freakin' Beans huh!!!) Just think of all the possibilities for that! (yes, soccer ball fits too!)
Just think about how easy this would be to customize or mass produce for team cards or Coaches!
Here is the last card for today... a masculine retirement card.
My grandpa used to have a favorite chair. When he retired he worked hard every day still in his garden and on his property. I remember watching TV and Movies with him in the evening... and he was always in his chair! He deserved a good rest! As far as what I used on this card. The woodgrain impression plate is Kraft cardstock that has been rubbed with Vintage Cream ink. LOVE this result! The lower Dark Chocolate strip is impressed using the Argyle Impression plate. I used the Wingback chair image from Chair-ished for the focal image.
A Little Argyle is used to create the Argyle Pattern.
I stamped the large Dashed Argyle image first, then filled in the desired spaces with the Medium Diamond image.
Notice the dots? I haven't shared that yet. Something fun to add even more versatility to the set. (There is also a single dot image.)
I hope you have enjoyed this month's countdown. It's been a wonderful week... and there are SO many amazing projects in the gallery that the Design Team has created. It's blowing my mind! Make sure to put your seat belts on before you check them out! It's amazing to me how both my sets have been used for everything from Shabby Chic to Modern, Clean and fresh! WOW!
Don't forget to make one last stop to Nichole, Heather, Becky and Dawn's blog for their final sneak peeks! AND... don't forget to visit our Distinguished Guest Designer...Ashley Newell's blog! Kim Hughes has some awesome sneak peeks of her Click Simple templates too!
