Papertrey February Release...

Today I have my Papertrey projects from this month's release to share with you. This release was full of fun & fresh new stamps plus lots of coordinating product.

First up is a card made with Maile's new Beautiful Butterflies set and coordinating dies. Some of the most creative butterflies I've seen on the market. I particularly love the dies and all the layering possibilities they offer. And the fonts and sentiments are a treasure in themselves. I layered my butterflies on a piece of My Mind's Eye patterned paper that has been splattered with spray ink and stitched.
Die cut butterflies are layered and stitched, then sprayed with shimmery mist and finished off with more glitter around the edges. I left the strings from machine stitching long to create butterfly tails.
The sentiment plays into the soft rainbow stripes of my butterflies.
My favorites this month, these tent topper cards made with Melissa's new Heart-2-Heart #1 stamp set and dies. This is a new series of stamps with each month featuring hearts. I can't wait to see what's in store.
For the card topper, I used the spiral notebook die stamped with Heather's ledger stamp and a sentiment from Take Note. Card base is 4.25" x 4.25". Coffee cups were die cut and paper pieced using My Mind's Eye patterned paper. I then colored the images with Copic Sketch markers.
To tie in with the girly sentiment I added some stamped letters to spell out "chit chat". These cards will definitely brighten some one's day.
Next up is a springy card created with Lisa's new Sweet Spring stamp set. The labels in the set coordinate with her Christmas labels. I love the oval fillers in this set.
I stamped the flowers and paper pieced the flowers and leaves with My Mind's Eye patterned papers. Washi tape, Vintage Buttons and ink splatters adorn the front of the card.
On the bottom of the card I stamped the new Background Basics: Medallions. A perfect background set for adding a little pattern.
And last but not least I created some Easter tags for the girls using Heather's new Scrambled Eggs stamp set. The name of the set is so clever and the images are just as cute. This set coordinates with the previously released Egg Hunt set and die. The addition of the cute bunny ears and face stamp is so adorable.
On the tag base, I layered lots of My Mind's Eye patterned papers with colorful Washi tapes. I then stitched over all the layers. Such a fun way to add lots of color to a project. The girls' names were stamped with Hero Arts letters. I shaded the bunny faces and ears with Copic markers.
Adorable little tags just waiting to be tied to the girls' Easter baskets. It always feels good to be ahead of the game.

I am just crazy about these cards and tags. It always makes me so happy to see your card/tag creations, they are always such a huge inspiration to me as a crafter. When I saw them on PTI release night I had to go back and reevaluate what stamp sets I was going to buy, after seeing your cards you persuaded me to add a few more things. And I just love the pattern paper you used, just beautiful. Thank you for sharing your creativity.
