The design team has a special post for you today featuring more projects that will hopefully give you a creative jump start through the upcoming holidays.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - October 2016 - #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk #AshleyCannonNewell - Tiny Town: Gingerbread + Tiny Town: Holiday Yard + Christmas Cuts

Tiny Town dies are amazing, but sometimes, I want them on a card, so I tried it out. To get more versatility out of your dies, trim the house shape by cutting along the scored lines. Fill the house with all of the die details and embellish!

I also used Tiny Town: Holiday Yard to add the trees and fence for a full scene. For the sentiment, I used the new Christmas Cuts stamps. The white stripe is a piece of cardstock I cut and adhered to the card front.

This card features the new What the Doodle: Snowflakes. I heat embossed the snowflakes using white embossing powder and watercolored the entire piece with aqua mist ink.

Shaped Sayings: Christmas dies is the focal point of this card. I chose Pure Poppy to make it pop from the subtle Aqua Mist background.  I embellished the die cut by adding a few shading marks with a white gel pen.

On this card, I paired the Stitched Gingerbread Mister die with the Sweet Holiday Wishes stamps and dies. Instead of using felt with the stitching dies, I wanted to use cardstock and show how to incorporate them onto a card.

Doesn’t this card make you want a hot cup of hot chocolate? Okay, maybe coffee…tea?! Whatever your favorite warm drink may be, the new Cozy Christmas stamp and die collection will have you thinking about it.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - October 2016 - #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk #AshleyCannonNewell - Splits:

This card features Splits: ‘Tis the Season. Instead of using the stamps as intended, I decided to break it up a bit. I aligned the holly stamps by repeating the image on the top and bottom of the kraft cardstock.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - October 2016 - #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk #AshleyCannonNewell - Splits:

I dry embossed the scalloped oval die to outline the sentiment.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - October 2016 - #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk #AshleyCannonNewell - Botanical Blocks IV

Botanical Blocks IV is a great addition to the collection. I worked with the holly leaves. After watercoloring the images, I brought out some of the leaves and berries using a white gel pen.

I framed the Botanical Blocks Basics dies with a hand drawn white gel pen.

To showcase Keep It Simple: Just a Note, I used Holiday Hugs and the gift card envelope.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - October 2016 - #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk #AshleyCannonNewell - Keep It Simple: Just a Note + Holiday Hugs

This is such a quick and easy way to gift a gift card.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - October 2016 - #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk #AshleyCannonNewell - Sprig Wreath

This traditional card features Sprig Wreath. After die cutting and stamping the wreath, I centered it around a gold heat embossed sentiment. I embellished the wreath with a satin ribbon that I altered using a red Copic marker.

Christmas Cuts offers a great new twist on holiday tags. I decided to make a few to get a head start on the holidays. After die cutting them, they’re super easy to add a sentiment and keep it moving.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - October 2016 - #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk #AshleyCannonNewell - Christmas Cuts

I used a white gel pen and Copic markers to alter the die cuts. And I didn’t forget to the to/from on the back side to identify the gift recipients!

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - October 2016 - #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk #AshleyCannonNewell - Inspired: Hope

For the latest Inspired collection, I chose to stray away from a holiday themed card. So, I paired a soft pink with a dark black.

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - October 2016 - #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk #AshleyCannonNewell - Inspired: Hope

I glittered the Hope die cut for added softness.

This has to be the quickest card I’ve ever made, yet so striking! Paper Clippings: Joy to the World is amazing!

Project by Ashley Cannon Newell for Papertrey Ink - October 2016 - #PaperSuite #PapertreyInk #AshleyCannonNewell - Paper Clippings: Joy to the World

Using it with luxe adhesive gold sheet is so easy to worth with using this die. When applying it to the card front, I suggest working from the bottom to the top.
