Papertrey Ink - October 2011 Release Project Part 1

The Papertrey Ink October release has come to an end, and I'm here to share the rest of my release projects with you, a few today and the rest later. So, let me get started!...First up, a little gift card ensemble using one of the new stamp set by Heather Nichols... Winterberry. I die cut a Gift Card Greetings from kraft cardstock. Then die cut a Tag Sale 5 from white cardstock, stamped with the branch to resemble mistletoe and attached to the holder. Embellished with a bow from Bells & Boughs. Stamped the branch and sentiment onto the inside flap. Finished it off with "To" and "From" from Tag-it's #9.Next up, an adorable snowman tag, created using the Shape-Up Series: Snowman Die Collection and Shape Up Snowman Accessories stamp set by Nichole Heady.Die cut a frosty hat from pattern paper and Harvest Gold Felt. To turn this snowman onto a tag, I simply punched a hole at the top, strung with Baker's twine and then attached the hat.Die cut and trimmed a couple In The Meadow snow drifts, attached to the base and then embellished with a bit of Stickles glitter glue. Finished it off with a "To" and "From".Next, Nativity Silhouettes by Tiffany Pastor. I stamped a row of silhouettes, in Vintage Touch Chia and Dark Chocolate ink, along the base of a Rustic Cream card front.Then embossed the rays with clear embossing powder for added emphasis.Now, for some Flower Fusion #9 by Melissa Bickford. Stamped the flower in Berry Sorbet and Spring Moss onto a Rustic White card base. Created a frame for the flower by first die cutting a Mega Mat Stack 3 from pattern paper and then die cut the center out using the Sending You die. Topped it all off with a Photo Finish Strip and buttons.And finally for today, Faith & Hope by Beth Silaika. Stamped the ribbon and sentiment onto the center of a white card base.
Die cut a Tag Sale 5 from the center of a cardstock block, stamped with the branch image in Versamark ink and then brushed over with Perfect Pearls pigment powder for a bit of added shimmer. Just a note, this technique would also look great embossed with clear embossing powder.

That's all from me today. All supplies used are listed in the Papertrey Ink gallery. Thanks for stopping by and have a great one!



  1. These are STUNNING! Thanks for all the inspiration!

  2. Soooo prety, Maile! The nativity silhouettes card is so beautiful! Love the way you created that gorgeous light around the beloved baby Jesus, truly sparkling! But my fave card today is the one that Nichole also picked, the last one, with the Faith & Hope set. Gorgeous, the embossing on the panel!!! Love the soft colors and how the card also feels soft itself. Sooo pretty and will be a true support for someone who needs it!!!
    I'm curious, do you send out all your cards, or do you save them somewhere? Don't know if you're up for it, but I would love to exchange cards one time!!
    Hugs, Wendy

  3. stunning as always. Love what that perfect pearls powder does to that last card. Will have to get me some.

  7. Nice ta. Great snowman; your hat looks great w/paper + felt! Like the nativity card. The embossing makes it look extra awesome. I love the cut out on your Make a Wish card, likewise the same on the Prayers card. The perfect pearls on the latter looks beautifu. Thanks for the inspiration. PTI notified me today that my box has been shipped. I should have it just in time to craft this coming weekend. :)

  8. Awesome awesome stuff! Am a huge fan of your work and take so much inspiration from your work! Tks so much! :)
    Made a card using your Bells and Boughs set, again, inspired by your card during the countdown (day 3). :)
