Welcome back to day two of the November Papertrey Ink New Release! Five days of posting which will lead up to the new release going live on the 15th! Thanks for stopping by today to see some more projects made with the new products. Everything will be available in the PTI store on Wednesday the 15th at 10pm EST. Yay! Today I have two Winter cards - one is warm and fuzzy, and the other one is bright and icy! I like to make generic Winter/Holiday cards for certain friends or business associates in case I do not know if they celebrate Christmas or not. These two cards fit the bill perfectly. I'll tuck them away for when I need them. Are you excited for the new release yet? What did you think of the products shown yesterday? I'd love to know! Have a great weekend everyone!
This first card is SOOOO fun. OMG I already adore this stamp set called Winter Woolens! It's right up my alley - cute Christmas sweaters, mittens and hats! Gosh, I know I am going to use this set alllll the time. The stamps are two step so you can easily make each item two different colors. I used the sweater stamps with little deer on them!!!!
I had a really hard time choosing a color palette for this stamp set and card. Because...it looked great in every color! I loved it in red and black, green and grey, black and grey...OMG. So I decided to let a new paper pad be my guide. I used the pretty sweater looking paper to guide my color choices. It matched lots of my PTI cardstock and patterned paper. I really like how it came out. Can a card by cozy?? LOL. I stamped the sweater and die cut it with the matching die. Then I die cut a circle for frame it. I used the brand new snowflake die to add an accent.
Isn't that sentiment cute? I added a few pearls and some trim I had in my stash to bring some extra textures. The sweater, the circle, the snowflake and the sentiment banner were all sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
All of these products are new - available next week! The papers are listed below in my supply links. I'll update the supplies once the stamps and dies go live!
So this next card is icy and bright and bold! Lots of red and white! Touches of sparkly silver paper and rhinestones. Oh my! I used the Winter Wishes dies (released last month) to make my focal point and then stamped snowflakes around it. Lastly I die cut one giant silver snowflake. This card was quick to put together.
For the Winter Wishes dies, I ended up stacking two die cuts to make it a bit thicker and to stand off the page. To do this, just use a glue pen and some tweezers! Easy!
Thanks for joining me for day two of release week! See you tomorrow! Happy Saturday! XOXO
