Papertrey Ink September Release In Review

The Papertrey Ink September release will be available in the store tonight at 10 pm EST. Who's ready to shop? 

I have loved creating with these new products, and have just a few more things to share today.

First up, Enclosed: Bell, by Dawn McVey:

I used this pretty bell die a little differently. I left off the overlay layer (a bell-shaped frame with the word "joy" running through it, and instead layered on a glittery "holiday" die-cut from Christmas Cheer, (which I simply cannot put down!).

The holly is from Enclosed: Bell. The background is watercolored with Aqua Mist ink.

Stamps: Enclosed: Bell, Christmas Cheer

Dies: Enclosed: Bell, Christmas Cheer

Ink: Aqua Mist, Pinefeather, Pure Poppy, VersaMark

Paper: watercolor paper, white card stock, Soft Stone Stripe patterned paper, Make It Market Mini Kit: Holiday Folk, Luxe Silver card stock

Other: baker's twine, watercolor brush, foam adhesive, silver glass glitter

Deck the Halls is also by Dawn McVey. I love this pretty wreath!

I stamped the greenery in Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado, the pinecones in Dark Chocolate, and the bow in Pinefeather. The sentiment is from the Christmas Cheer stamp set and Christmas Cheer dies.

The background is stamped repeatedly with the Fa La La La La sentiment (from Deck the Halls) in Soft Stone.

Stamps: Deck the Halls, Christmas Cheer

Dies: Christmas Cheer

Ink: Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, Pinefeather, Dark Chocolate, Soft Stone

Paper: white and Soft Stone card stock

Other: sewing machine, foam tape

Here's a CAS card using Treetops Glisten by Maile Belles. I created a snowy hill out of white card stock using one of the Sentiment Splits: Curve Vertical dies. I adhered the white panel to one of the patterns from the Treetops Glisten paper pack, stamped a sentiment and adhered some Treetops Glisten die-cuts that I loosely watercolored with Pinefeather ink.

Stamps: Treetops Glisten

Dies: Treetops Glisten, Sentiment Splits: Curve Vertical

Ink: Smokey Shadow, Pinfeather

Paper: white card stock, Treetops Glisten patterned paper

Other: watercolor brush, foam tape

This card features more of those watercolored trees, another of the patterns from the Treetops Glisten paper pack, AND ... another new die set, String Frames, by Erin Lincoln. I used the largest rectangle, which cuts the stitching holes at the corners, allowing you to create perfect string frames in no time. 

I used the largest rectangle die to add the baker's twine frame around this scene. Super cool, and lots of different choices in this fun die set.

Stamps: Treetops Glisten

Dies: Treetops Glisten, String Frames

Ink: VersaMark, Pinefeather

Paper:Soft Stone card stock, watercolor paper, Treetops Glisten patterned paper

Other: baker's twine, watercolor brush, white embossing powder
