Papertrey Ink October Release In Review

This is my second post for today. To see my Reverse Confetti Fall-idays post click HERE or scroll down.


It is release day for Papertrey ink! Yippee!! All of the amazing new products you have been seeing for the past few days will be available for sale at Papertrey Ink tonight at 10:00 EST! And I have a few more things to share with you today! I also want to thank everyone for the lovely comments you have left for me on my Papertrey Ink posts! They sure made me happy, and made me smile over and over again! 



First up is the gorgeous new Enclosed Wreath by Dawn McVey stamped in the beautiful  new Vintage Jadeite! Oh how lovely! I added a little bit of shading to my wreath with Copic markers, and some red stickles to the little berries. I blended some Aqua Mist ink onto a piece of white Linen card stock for the background. Wow! That Linen paper blends wonderfully! Then I stamped the sentiment in True Black ink, and added the wreath with foam tape.


I layered three of the peace die cuts before adhering them down to the wreath for a little extra dimension.

Next is another adorable stamp set by Dawn McVey called Cup of Cheer. Not only are the images in the set cute, but the sentiments are so sweet! I stamped the coffee/tea kettle with pure poppy and the little cup with Aqua mist. I masked off parts of the sentiment with tape, and stamped it in Pinefeather, Aqua Mist, and Pure Poppy.

Next up is another stunning quilt set by Betsy Veldman called Quilted Winter along with a the new Tag Sale: Quilted Die. Let me tell you, I could play with this die for weeks and still not do all the things I want to with it! I had so many ideas in my head for this set, but alas, time is not on my side these days. I don't have the luxury of piddling with one stamp set for much longer than a day anymore. That's okay, I'm sure this is one I will grab on many occasion! 



So for this card, I cut the quilt out of white card stock, punched all the pieces out, added a large piece of Score tape on the backside, then added the stamped pieces back into the quilt. I used soft stone and  spring rain card stock for the larger spaces. For the scalloped background, I used the Tag sale: Quilted Die and I just turned it upside down and ran it through my Big shot again to cut the hanger off the top leaving a scalloped edge. I cut a strip of Spring Rain card stock and stamped one of the snowflakes from the set randomly, then adhered this down the side of the card base. I then adhered the quilt and scalloped background piece to my card.  I glued down the sentiment and stamped the little swirly just off to the side. 


I had so much fun cutting out all of these little quilted pieces, that I had enough left over to make three matching tags!



Wouldn't they be perfect for a winter baby shower!!

Next up is the adorable new Joyous Christmas set by Dawn McVey and the super cute Fair Isle Borders stamp set from Lizzie Jones! Who doesn't love bottle brush trees! It wouldn't be Christmas without them!  So I stamped the Fair Isle border across the bottom in Vintage Jadeite, using my MISTI of course to get it straight :) Then I stamped the sentiment in Pinefeather and Sweet Blush, masking off parts with tape to get the two different colors. I stamped the trees with Sweet Blush and Vintage Jadeite, cut them out with the matching dies, and adhered them with foam tape. The little star at the top is a flower from the Cup of Cheer set!

And here are those darling Fair Isle borders again!! Oooooh another one that I have big ideas for! I just love stamping them in different colors! So wintery and Christmasy!! Paired with the Keep It Simple: Gift Thanks stamp set, this makes for a very easy thank you card to mass produce for all of those fabulous ( or not so fabulous ) gifts you got for Christmas! Yep! You have to thank them all :) It's the thought that counts! Anyway, I just stamped these beautiful fair isle patterns in Pinefeather, New Leaf, and Pure Poppy, then stamped the thank you across the top in True Black and added a flower from the Cup of Cheer set!

And last, but most definitely not least ( kind of like dessert) is this card, created with Warmest Wishes by Nichole Heady. Ooooooh I can't tell you how much I adore this set! I love little animal stamps, but even more, winter little animals! And polar bears, penguins, and foxes just happen to be my favorites!  And that little sweater on the polor bear, it's separate! Yes he can go without if it's too warm, but since there is so much snow here, I couldn't resist dressing him in his pretty sweater :) 



Everything is colored with Copic Markers and cut out with the matching dies. I blended some Hawaiian Shores ink onto the background before adhering everything with foam tape. The snow drift was created with the lower part of the Sentiments Splits: Curve Horizontal die. 



Oh my goodness!! Look what's inside!! Is that not precious! I used the little fox and his removable scarf and one of the sentiments from the new Tucked in: Holiday stamp set! So perfect for the inside of this wintery card!! :)

  1. Oh boy, oh boy, oh BOY! You sure have been busy, Kay! Look at all the gorgeousness you have shared today. Every card/tag is terrific. They all have the Kay touch and I can see where you could spend oodles of time (if you had it available) to make lots of variations. That quilted piece is amazing and I adore the polar bear and fox card. But really, each piece is its own masterpiece. You are such a fabulous artist Kay. Thanks for sharing and making wallets all over beg for mercy tonight. :) Big huge hugs to you!
