Welcome to Day Three of Papertrey Ink's November release countdown.
The November release will be available for purchase at 10 pm EST November 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.
Today, you're in for a treat -- Betsy has designed a scenery stamp set for the Petite Places series: Walk in the Park. Cobblestone paths, a darling bridge, trees and shrubs, even street lamps. She has also designed a Petite Places paper collection that includes both scenic background designs as well as sheets of pre-printed trees and shrubs ready for die-cutting.
Today the team is revisiting the entire Petite Places collection and combining previously released favorites with these new scene-building elements. For a fun twist, Nichole has also asked us to create four seasonal variations of our project design.
I decided to make a set of bookmarks featuring the Petite Places: Church, Walk in the Park, and Scripture sentiments from Betsy's Phrases & Praises, also releasing this month.
The bookmark style is such that the length of ribbon slips between the pages and the bookmark part sits on the front cover.
Here's a look at them one by one:
All four bookmarks begin with the Basic Bookmark 3, which I die-cut from the Petite Places Paper Collection. The bridge and street lamps are die-cut and stamped with images and dies from Petite Places: Walk in the Park. The church is die-cut and stamped with dies and images from Petite Places: Church. And the Scripture sentiment is from Phrases & Praises, also coming November 15. To make this specific to Fall, I used fall-colored trees from the Petite Places Paper Collection, and sprinkled on a few tiny leaf die-cuts, which were done with a die in the Shaker Shapes: Pumpkin die set.
The winter bookmark begins with the winter scene paper from the Petite Places Paper Collection. I changed to a winter tree and added snowflake accents (using Quilted: Winter stamps/dies).
Spring and Summer are very similar. Both have the same layout and the sun rays background. The main difference is the trees: The Spring bookmark shows two trees just beginning to get their leaves and one tree that is flowering. I used one of the shrubbery stamps to create both of those looks. For an embellishment, I added a die-cut butterfly from the Wee Folk Make-It Market Mini Kit.
And last, Summer. Here, the trees are in full leaf and the background is the warmer yellow sky. The sparrow embellishment came from the Wee Folk Make-It Market Mini Kit.
I finished off the ends of the bookmarks with a dangling bead.
