Papertrey Ink July Release Day 2

Hi and welcome to Day 2 of the Papertrey Ink July Sneak Peeks. Today's cards feature pretty wispy trees and eucalyptus branches. Everything will be available for purchase beginning at 10 PM EST, Thursday, July 21st.

My first card is created with the new Wispy Tree Die. I really like the simple, graceful feel of the die. I die cut the Wispy Tree twice and glue the two layers together to add dimension to the tree. 

I arranged a group of fall foliage at the bottom of the tree with the new Sprigs & Spray: Fall Stamps and Dies. I have listed the inks I used below. 

I created the background by blending Distress Inks in Peeled Paint, Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, and Spiced Marmalade.

I stamped a sentiment from the new Just Sentiments: You're On My Mind Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on vellum and then embossed with black embossing powder. I like to wrap the vellum around the edges of the background and adhere so that I don't have to worry about the adhesive showing through the vellum.

Next up is a look at the new Eucalyptus Elegance Stamp Set and Dies.  You can arrange the branches in a circle to create a wreath or use the branches individually. I used Mint Julep and Ocean Tides Ink and used a small blending brush to add a touch of Tropical Teal Ink. 

I used the Cover Plate: Decorative Circles to created the background. The sentiment is included in the set.

Here is look at the new Elegant Edges: Wispy Tree. I cut the die from Stamper's Select White Cardstock and backed the die cuts with Ripe Avocado Cardstock. Then I added a few gold jewels. 

The sentiment is from new Just Sentiments: You're On My Mind and I die cut and matted the sentiment with the new Love to Layer: Oval

I kept the background simple and just lightly stenciled clouds. 

Stamps: Just Sentiments: You're On My Mind
