Ink To Paper

New Release: Countdown Day 2

March 17, 2021

Good morning friends and welcome back to day 2 of the new release countdown for Ink To Paper. Today products are perfect for teachers, school and graduation. I have a lot to share with today, so let's get started.

For my first card I am using the new Storybook Teacher Set. This set coordinates with the previous released Storybook Christmas Set. I love how this little add on set can really change the look and design of the original set. You might not know this, but I am a retired kindergarten teacher. So books and school related items always bring a smile to my face. 

Next, I used the Growth Set for my shelf, light and sentiment. I felt like these images and sentiment worked well with Storybook Teacher Set. What do you think?

I created my card panel with a brick stencil I had in my stash. Once my panel was finished I stamped my sentiment, cord for the light and brackets for the shelf directly onto the panel. I then added my stamped images with foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a frame that had been die cut with the Skinny Frames Diagonal Border Die Set. 

For my next card I created a mini slimline card. It measures 3.5 x 6 is my first time creating a card this size and I am hooked! I love it. Sometimes a slimline card is a little "too long" this size seems to be the perfect combination.

I once again used the Storybook Christmas Set along with the Storybook Teacher Set to stamp my images. For my sentiment I am using the new To Die For Sentiment: Grow Die. I die cut the sentiment from Pure Poppy cardstock. 

I ink blended Blueberry Sky ink onto my card mat. I then mounted it onto a Blueberry Sky cardstock mat before attaching it to my card base. Lastly, I attached my sentiment and images to finish my card.

Are you still with me?

My next card involves no stamping and was fairly quick to put together. I created my background by cutting strips of cardstock and attaching them to my card panel in rainbow order. 

I then used the To Die For Sentiment: Grow Die to create my sentiment. I ran the die through my die cutting machine three times and stacked the dies together for a little extra dimension and stability. I then attached the sentiment to my card panel with a little liquid glue. 

 Next, I have a really fun project to share.

This is a large die that create a cap and gown graduation gift card holder. The die is called Go To Gift Card Holder: Congratulations Graduate. There is also a mini coordinating stamp set. It is all so fun and easy to use. 

I die cut the gown two times and placed a little adhesive along the sides, arms and bottom to create a pocket.  The hat attaches to the gift card holder on two sides so the gift card can slide up under the hat to help hold it all in place. *Make sure you look at the Papertrey Ink Blog for all of the details or please feel free to ask any questions and I will get back to you. 

I kept my design pretty basic, but there are lots of fun ways you can personalize this set. I think it will be really fun to add numbers for the year or letters for school's name. 

Hopefully you made it all the the way to the end. Lots of fun products today. I will be back tomorrow with day 3 of the countdown.

Enjoy your day,
