Papertrey Ink October Release - Winter Window


It's Day Four of Papertrey Ink's October Release countdown. Welcome! I'm excited to help introduce WINTER WINDOW stamps and dies today.

You can find all the details about these new products HERE.

The October Release products will be available at 10 pm October 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.



WINTER WINDOW stamps and dies by Lizzie Jones contain all sorts of different dies and images to create winter and Christmas window scenes: falling snow, a tree, deer, holiday swag, candle, etc.

I wanted to create a nighttime scene outside the window, so I ink blended a night sky, stamped some falling snow, and flecked with shimmer spritz. I added the tree to the left and then thought it would be fun to add Santa's sleigh using an image from Betsy Veldman's FAIRY TALE CHRISTMAS collection. (The Santa sleigh in PETITE PLACES: HOLIDAY LANE that should fit, too, if you have that.)



The sentiment diecut is from last month's BOLD BORDERS: YULETIDE, and my snowflake backdrop was done with this month's BOLD BORDERS: FLURRIES. I really wanted to make a shiplap background around the window, but it wasn't turning out quite like I envisioned, so that may come another day.



I thought the card needed a little sparkle, so I added some silver glass glitter to the window perimeter.  It's quite sparkly in real life, and breaks up all the white in the background.

Papertrey Ink October Release - Pleasing Envelopes + Fawn & Flora


Hello and welcome to Day One of Papertrey Ink's October Release countdown! 

Today I will be helping to introduce two new sets: PLEASING ENVELOPES and FAWN  & FLORA.

You can find all the details about these new products HERE.

The October Release products will be available at 10 pm October 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.


First up is PLEASING ENVELOPES by Jennifer Campbell, which is a set filled with beautiful winter florals, including two poinsettias, and sentiments appropriate for envelope art and tags. I loved  stamping and layering these images to make a card and coordinating envelope.



For my background, I stamped the poinsettias in Pale Peony, added some shading with Berry Sorbet and the veins in Pure Poppy. The evergreen sprigs are stamped in Spring Moss, the leaves are in Spring Moss and Olive Twist, and the pinecones are Cocoa Bean. For more filler images, I added some different sprigs in Ocean Tides, Soft Stone, Classic Kraft and Dark Indigo.



The Merry Christmas sentiment is from FAWN & FLORA. For added interest, I ink blended around the stamping in Aqua Mist, then splattered with Aqua Mist and opaque white. One final touch was to spritz the whole panel with some shimmer spray.


I stamped the coordinating envelope in the same way. Who wouldn't love to receive a colorful envelope stamped with these beautiful florals?!





Next up is a really sweet set designed by Betsy Veldman: FAWN & FLORA. The various multi-step images are quick to stamp and easy to line up. In addition to the holiday greens, there are some other florals too, making this set much more than a holiday set.



I stamped my deer in Classic Kraft, Cocoa Bean, and True Black, then added some Christmas greens stamped in Mint Julep, Tropical Teal, Pinefeather, Cocoa Bean, Pure Poppy, and Ocean Tides. 

I stamped a sentiment onto a BASIC CUT TAG diecut, ink blended in Aqua Mist and spritzed with opaque white.


In the background is a Smokey Shadow MIX & MAT: PLAID diecut with some opaque white spritzing and some slight Fresh Snow blending around the perimeter.
