September Release Projects | Papertrey Ink

So, tonight is the night! At 10 pm EST, you can purchase all of the great new products Papertrey Ink is releasing. Lots of holiday related products, but some can be used all year long. Here are my remaining projects.


This card was designed with lots of patterns. Can you tell what’s patterned paper and what’s stamped? That’s the point! I used Simple Stories’ 25 Days of Christmas collection along with Holiday Button Bits and the soon-to-be released Bits & Buttons stamp sets. I also paired it with a sentiment from Happiest of Holidays, another newbie that will be available tonight.

On rustic cream cardstock, I stamped journaling lines with classic kraft ink. Next, I stamped the holly and ornaments. The holly berries and the ornament shapes are stamped with the new Bits & Buttons stamp set. I layered it onto scarlet jewel cardstock, then added it to the patterned paper covered card front. I die cut the shape from kraft cardstock and stamped the sentiment using dark chocolate ink. The focal element is sealed with vintage trim elements and scarlet jewel buttons.

I’ve designed this sweet card using Gingerbread Lane stamps and dies. You can have so much fun with this stamp set and there are so many images to you to create a variety of projects!

I trimmed my patterned paper to an A2 card size. I die cut the hills and covered it with glitter. I stamped the house and candy canes onto the coordinating dies.

A little something for those who like a country-chic style. I’ve designed this card using the new Heart-2-Heart #8 stamp set and die. I alos paired it with the new Loop de Loop border die (so fun and cute)! On this project, I used Authentique’s Carefree collection.

After adhering the patterned paper to the card front, I die cut the loopy border and added it as a divider between each section. Next, I die cut the tree from Limeade Ice felt. I stamped the tree onto muslin fabric and added a little batting to the back, stitched around the border, and pinked the edges. After adhering the fabric embellishment to the card front, I added a stamped tag to the card front using a classic kraft button and dark chocolate twill tape.

For this card, I used Winter Snow Globe stamps and dies. I stamped the coordinating snow globe images and adhered them to the stripe blueberry sky patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment and added stitching around the borders.

On the snowman, I added a bit of glitter too!

On this card, I added a bit of texture to play off the “cozy” in the sentiment from Happiest of Holidays. Happy Harlequin was used to create the pattern using Limeade Ice, Berry Sorbet, and Classic Kraft inks.

I tucked a folded strip of burlap behind the sentiment.

I’m sure most of you like to make holiday cards, but what about mailing them and even production time? You need lots of cards fast and ones that will not give you shipping troubles, right? So, keep it simple with a one-layer card. I’ve designed one using the new Mistletoe & Holly stamp set.

On Sugar Plum patterned paper, I stamped a mistletoe and the sentiment and simply matted it onto a pure poppy A2 card front. You can leave it at that or add little pearls.

Here’s my last card for today. I stamped a complete background using Snowflake Medley. I used aqua mist, blueberry sky, spring rain, and fine linen inks. Just have fun and stamp away!

I also die cut a snowflake, which coordinates with Snowflake Medley, and layered it on a rounded label die cut. I heat embossed the sentiment (Peace, Love & Joy) using gold embossing powder.

That’s it! I hope you’ve enjoyed this release with all of the festive holiday products. To see more, make sure you visit the rest of the design team. Have a great weekend and take care.

  • Cristina - Amazing, all of them. I love the mistletoe one. Why do I always forget to stamp on patterned paper? I think I might be CASEing that for some of my Christmas cards this year. And the stitching on your snow globe card is awesome. You pulled it out, lady! In spades!ReplyCancel
