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.
