Papertrey Ink December Release In Review




Hello and welcome to the final post for the December release of all the new Papertrey Ink products!  All of the products you have been seeing over the past five days will be available at the Papertrey Ink online store at 10:00pm EST tonight!  So exciting!!




Okay so I am very much in the Christmas spirit here and used Dawn's Enclosed: Heart set and dies to create a Christmas card :) Ever since I got the Quilted Winter set, I wanted to pair it up with Betsy's Holiday Plaid paper pack, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity! I created the quilt then cut it out with the heart shaped die. I then cut out three of the Love overlays, glued them together and glued this over the quilted heart shape.





I used the Spruce & Sprigs set to add a little Christmas cluster to the side there.

Christmas Love

STAMPS: Enclosed: Heart, Spruce & Sprigs, Fab Flakes, Snowflake Flurries
DIES: Enclosed: Heart, Spruce & Sprigs, Fab Flakes, Quilted Winter

My next card features an adorable new stamp set and dies from Maile Belles called Fresh Floral Wrap Ups. 


I used the Charmed Frame Die and inlaid some of the pieces with Berry Sorbet card stock. For the inside piece, I used paper from the Ombre Stripes paper pack. 


And for the inside, I stamped one of the sentiments from Tucked In: Anniversary. The little flourish at the top is from Holiday Photo Finishers stamp set.

This card features the new Two Toned stamp set and dies by Nichole Heady which, by the way, I LOVE! This set is going to come in real handy, and I can see myself reaching for this time and time again! I used another piece of paper from the Ombre Stripes paper pack to go across the card. The bottom half of the hexagon I stamped with Sweet Blush and Pure Poppy. I did this using the MISTI to get the ombre effect. The flowers on top are from Maile's  Fresh Floral Wrap Ups set. The hexagon back piece is from Mat Stack #1

This fun Valentines card features a new stamp set and dies from Heather Nichols called XXOO. I cut all of the die shapes out of some paper that I had watercolored and ink blended on.  The leafy branch and the little flower are both from the Song Bird dies. The sentiment was stamped with the new Keep It Simple: Love set.

And last but not least is this sweet little card made with the new One Big Happy stamp set and dies. This adorable stamp set is free with a $100 order this month! I love that big flower and the happy die is a new favorite of mine!  

I blended the background with some Lovely Lady ink on white Linen card stock. I layered three of the happy die cuts for dimension and added the flowers with foam tape. The centers of the flowers are from the Button Stacks II and Bitty Button Stacks dies.
