October Release Projects | Papertrey Ink

Happy Monday! Here are the remaining projects I’ve created for Papertrey Ink’s October release. All products will be available to purchase tonight at 10 pm EST. Thanks so much for visiting over the past few days and if you left a comment, I’ve read them all and they are greatly appreciated. I believe I responded to all questions, if not…ask again!:)

 

This card features Snowflake Flurries. I just love this stamp set! It’s so much fun to stamp with and can be used for countless cards, layouts, mini albums, and other projects. The sentiment is from Think Big Favorites #21; another great holiday sentiment stamp set. These enlarged sentiments can be added to card interiors or exteriors and even for scrapbook related projects too!

On white cardstock, I stamped with aqua mist, sweet blush, limeade ice, soft stone, and ocean tide inks. The sentiment is stamped with smokey shadow ink. I love to use smokey shadow as a dark neutral substitute for true black.

Created this cozy card using Layered Postmarks: Holiday. I die cut Mat Stack 3 from patterned paper and layered a 1.75″ Limitless Layers: Circle with a sentiment from the new stamp set. I also die cut the two holly leafs, stamped the solid holly image in simply chartreuse ink, then layered it with the postmark pattern in dark chocolate ink. I added another patterned paper strip and a button to finish off the focal embellishment.

To finish the card, I embossed the Striped Sweater pattern on kraft cardstock and distressed the edges with vintage cream ink.

Bold Stripes!

This wedding card showcases Heart-2-Heart #9 stamps and dies. I die cut the cake and stamped the coordinating image in sweet blush ink. I added a classic kraft felt heart die cut (from Gingerbread Lane). The two love birds are stamped in true black on Limitless Layers: Squares die cuts.

The 4″ square card is covered with Background Basics: Super Stripes in true black ink. This wedding card is for a young, fun, and bold couple!

Beautiful Blessings: Holiday sentiments are so special. I heat embossed the sentiment using gold embossing powder on enchanted evening cardstock. To finish it off, I embellished the bottom portion with Edgers #2 and added some 1/4″ white silk ribbon.

For the background, I created a patterned paper on kraft cardstock using Peaceful Pinecones and classic kraft ink.

Next up, there’s Winter Hills! I stamped the Background Basics: Striped Sweater in fine linen ink on the right side. On the left side, I stamped the snowflake pattern. I used Winter Hills to stamp those beautiful bare trees and sentiment in dark chocolate ink.

For the focal point, I die cut a couple of snowflakes from Snowflake Medley using ocean tides felt and cream felt. I layered it with some vintage applique trim and a classic kraft felt heart from Gingerbread Lane. Some stitching down the center secures all the layers.

The winter months are full of holidays, including Hanukkah. I stamped some images and sentiments from Menorah Medley to create this simple one-layer card.

On blueberry sky cardstock, I stamped the menorah base in blueberry sky ink. Next, the candles were heat embossed using white powder. To complete the flames, I heat embossed them with a bit of mustard embossing powder. I just love the texture heat embossing provides. So, I kept it going and heat embossed the sentiment as well. I added a little white bow for a bit of elegance (1/4″ white silk ribbon).

For my last card, I stamped Background Basics: Striped Sweater in sweet blush ink on rustic cream cardstock. I also stamped some flourishes from Embellishments using smokey shadow ink.

On a limeade ice Tag Sale 6 die cut, I stamped a sentiment from Over Under Easy in smokey shadow ink. I added some layered buttons to finish it off.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s display of new products. Have fun shopping. But, if you need more inspiration, there is so much more to see. Check out these links and have a great day!
