Christmas Faith

Welcome to Day 3 of Papertrey Ink's September holiday release countdown, and our first big group post for this release. So glad you're here! Today we are featuring Christmas Faith by Heather Nichols, Shine by Nichole Heady, Inspired: Jesus by Betsy Veldman, and A Thrill of Hope by Dawn McVey.

All of the new products will be available at 10 pm ET on September 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.

If you prefer your Christmas images and sentiments to be faith-based, you're going to love today's products! First up is Christmas Faith. The pair of doves have a beautiful simplicity, the various greens are so easy to combine, and the simple but elegant sentiments are meaningful and heartwarming.

These images have a folk feel to me. The bright red birds, symmetrical layout, and felt heart all helped to support a more folk art look.

Paper: Fresh Snow Linen card stock, Stamper's Select White card stock, Rustic White card stock

Other: white felt, white embroidery floss, foam adhesive

It doesn't get more faith-based than a Jesus die-cut and stable! Inspired: Jesus is the newest in the Inspired line, and an instant favorite. The stable is from last year's Petite Places: Nativity stamps and dies. 

The greens are from Christmas Faith, and I love the Shine image in the background!

Last for today is A Thrill of Hope. This large sentiment set is filled with meaningful sentiments and beautiful font combinations. This sentiment is a favorite! I white embossed it onto an Ocean Tides Tag Sale #1 die-cut, then layered some richly colored Holiday Greens die-cuts on, around, and behind the tag. The background has some very subtle ink blending and splattering, along with some gold sequins.

All your cards are gorgeous! The red doves and the white felt heart, the greenery with a kraft stable accented by the new color, and my favorite the ocean tides accent with winter greens and a sentiment tag! You have the magic touch!

Amy, every card a masterpiece! Stunning in every way. The white heart red doves is a favorite. But so is the manger scene! And then there's the way you softened the edges of the Ocean Tides tag, brilliant!
