Door To Door

Hey Everyone! Today, the design team is sharing projects featuring Papertrey Ink’s Door to Door stamp set and dies. This set will be available to purchase on November 15th. I created a couple of moving cards.

Although moving can be a stressful time, the Door to Door stamp set can help make notifying family and friends about your new address super easy (and a lot of fun too)! Inspired by the double door die, I designed an interactive card that allows the recipient to view the new address behind those beautiful doors.

To announce the special occasion, the banner die and coordinating sentiments really make the Door to Door stamp set so much fun. The set is really versatile and you can use that fun banner die/stamps alone as well as on other non-door projects to embellish or make it your focal point.

The Door to Door stamp set also includes a variety of stamps to design your own floral arrangements. The coordinating dies makes adding these elements to projects a breeze. Here, I created floral arrangement to accent the door image.

For an interactive element, the doors open to reveal the new address. I think it’s such an inviting way to announce your address and maybe even a visit! Below, I’ve provided step-by-steps and supplies for this card.

Trim ocean tides cardstock and emboss with wood grain embossing plate. Adhere to true black cardstock, then adhere onto soft stone A2 card front.

 

Die cut doors on soft stone cardstock, then stamp doors, handles, and hinges.

 

Stamp door awning and cut entire stamped image by hand.

 

Print address on soft stone cardstock, trim to fit stamped image, then adhere behind door image. Adhere to card front with foam adhesive.

 

Die cut banner from harvest gold cardstock, then stamp banner and sentiment. Adhere to door awning using foam adhesive.

 

Die cut flower pots from true black cardstock, then stamp images using vintage cream ink.

 

Die cut flowers and stamp images, then color using Copic markers. Adhere to flower pot die cuts, then adhere to card front with foam adhesive.

To showcase the versatility of this stamp set in creating a moving announcement, I designed another card using patterns and the flower arrangement dies as the focal points. To make the design a bit quicker to create, you could simply leave off the patterned paper and have a more clean and graphic card.

The flower arrangement dies and stamps can be used on so many other projects. I just love this concept! Check out the instructions and supplies for this card below.

Trim patterned papers and layer, then adhere to an A2 card front. Add zig zag stitching to the borders.

 

Die cut label from patterned paper.

 

Die cut flower pots and flowers, then stamp and assemble. Adhere to label die cut with foam adhesive.

 

Die cut banner from ripe avocado cardstock, then stamp images. Adhere to label die cut with foam adhesive.

 

Trim ripe avocado cardstock strip, then cut ends to create pennant look. Adhere label to strip using foam adhesive.

 

Add label focal point to card front, then add buttons with twine to both sides of label.

I love the way you used the wood embossing plate. I missed that Papertrey carried this. I see too that Papertrey released a new Papertrey Radio episode with you on it. I can’t wait to listen to it. I love that podcast — I was so disappointed when they decided not to produce it as frequently.

Great looks Ashley! Really love the second one, such versatile elements in this new PTI set!

Karen RoseNovember 13, 2011 - 9:15 am

Hi Ashley, Congratulations on becoming a design team member. For a long time now, I thought you would be a perfect addition and here you are. I listened to the podcast and heard your excitement and I was grinning from ear to ear with that. Way to go!! And today I really love your ideas with this set. You always include such tiny little details on your projects, which really set them off. Look forward to seeing more!!

Both of your cards are so creative! The first one is genuius for a just moved card! Love it! And … I was so glad to see your second card, using this set w/o the door. The lovely patterned paper background, and large, single flowers in the urns is fantastic! I knew you’d do a GREAT job as a PTI DT member! :)
