Introducing Winter Woods





Hello and welcome to the first Papertrey Ink group post! All of the products you are seeing today will be available at the Papertrey Ink online store at 10:00pm EST on Nov. 15th. 

Today we are showcasing a brand new stamp set and dies designed by Nichole Heady called Winter Woods. I have to tell you, I am in love with this set! It speaks to me in so many ways! I love birch trees for one thing, and I really have a thing for winter birds too! I so love it! There is  also a new birch Cover Plate, be still my heart, and matching paper pack! Along with this set we are also featuring some beautiful snowflake stamps and dies from Dawn McVey. You can never have too many snowflake stamps and dies in my opinion :) So on to my projects!



For my first card, I created the background by blending Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Pinefeather, and New Leaf dye inks onto some White Linen card stock. I then splattered it with some of the Hawaiian Mist and New Leaf mixed with a little water and some white paint. Next I cut the Winter Woods Cover plate. I stamped it with the birch pattern along the edges of the trees, then took a warm grey Copic marker and ran along the edges of all the trunks to give it a little dimension. I then glued this down to my blended piece. I stamped the cardinal , cut it out and added it with foam tape and stamped the sentiment at the top with True Black. All of this was then mounted to an A2 size top folded card base. 


Hello Winter Card

STAMPS: Winter Woods
DIES: Winter Woods, Cover Plate: Winter Woods
PAPER: Stampers Select, White Linen
INK: Hawaiian Shores, New Leaf, Pinefeather, True Black, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate



For my next card I used the adorable little Chick-a-dee! I stamped him with the new ink color Stormy Sea! It's the perfect gray! I used a piece of the paper from the Winter Woods paper Collection for my background, then I cut a circle out of a piece of white card stock. I mounted that on top with foam tape. I stamped and cut out the bird and pine branch and adhered both of those  with foam tape as well. The sentiment is stamped with True Black ink, and I added a few PPP sequins.

My last card might be my favorite. I do dearly love to cluster lots of little things and that is exactly what I did on this card. Again, I used one of the papers from the Winter Woods paper collection for my background. I used the wreath from Twig Wreath and some beautiful snowflakes from Dawn's new Fab Flakes, and clustered those all together with some birch trees, and that beautiful cardinal to create my focal point.  I stamped some tiny dots from Confetti Toss and the stars from Birthday Cheer. They make pretty nice little snowflakes don't you think? :) I stamped the sentiment from Fab Flakes just under the cardinal in True Black ink.

  1. Gorgeous work, Kay! All three cards are fabulous! I really like the new gray color. I also like that you used a star from a different set on the one card. You've done three cards that are similar but oh so different. Each is beautiful in its own way. That last one is pure Kay with the clusters. Your forte for sure. Thanks so much for sharing. Your talent is shining brightly on these. Hugs!
