One of the most popular, ongoing stamp requests we receive from customers is for more sentiments that are appropriate for the insides of cards. We here at Papertrey Ink have been working hard behind the scenes to bring you a new line of stamp sets that are perfectly suited for just that... the Inside & Out Collection. These sets will be filled with lengthier sentiments that will work well on the inside of your projects, as well as shorter sentiments that can go on the outside leading to the interior message. These are sure to be a must-haves for any stamper like me who is sometimes at a loss for words once I get to the inside of my handmade cards!
The first theme we decided to tackle was BABY. With a fun mix of whimsical & beautifully elegant sentiments, you will surely feel like you are putting the perfect sentimental touch to your baby projects.
- Inside & Out: Baby will be available for purchase on January 15th.
- It will retail for $24.
- Inside & Out: Baby contains a total of 18 sentiment stamps.
I have put together one very special card using this heartfelt set that I am extraordinarily excited to share with you. I was sure to capture each step along the way so that you could easily recreate it on your own. Let's jump right in, shall we?
Here it is... the exact project I was imagining when I chose to include this sentiment in Inside & Out: Baby. The colors are a sweet scheme of Aqua Mist & Spring Rain. A bit of glitter and a smudge of ink. A few stitches here and there and you have yourself a beautiful card to introduce a new little baby to the world. The central focal point is actually easier to create than you might think. Let me show you step step...
I thought a few sparkly stars would be the perfect complement to the sentiment. I pulled out a small star from our All-Star Team stamp set and added it a few times using Fresh Snow ink. Immediately after stamping them, I sprinkled them with Prisma Glitter. I also added a few small dots using my 2-way Glue Pen, sprinkling them with glitter as well. The final effect is a subtly, sparkly sky.
I wanted to be sure to show you the background I put together for my card before the focal point was added. Half of it is from the new January paper collection designed by Heather Nichols, Pretty Pastels (see full preview in post below). Can you see the detail in it? Every single pattern in this collection is just STUNNING. The other half is Spring Rain cardstock stamped with Polka Dot Baiscs 2 using Fresh Snow ink. I stitched through the center using a zigzag stitch on my sewing machine. Totally in love with how this turned out!
Here is a close-up of all the sparkle & shimmer in all it's glory. *sigh* So peaceful and tranquil. You almost want to climb right in and lay down to gaze up at the stars...
The inside of a card is often neglected, especially here in my studio! As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, the new Inside & Out series of stamps makes it easy to add a heartfelt message to your interiors.
The one used here goes perfectly with what I selected for the cover. It reminds me of how sweet new babies are and the amazing future they hold within thier little souls. Such a blessing!
I decided to challenge the team to use this new sentiment set both on a card and coordinating tag/wrap for a new little one. And did they ever! You will never be at a loss for a baby gift ensemble again after you peruse thier amazing creations!!!
