Papertrey Ink November 2011 Release Projects

The Papertrey Ink November Countdown is about to come to an end and I'm here to share my final projects with you tonight. Let me get started!...First up, Willow. I stamped a Rustic White cardstock panel with a willow tree and a sentiment and attached to a kraft card base with dimensional adhesive. Impressed a couple Simply Chartreuse cardstock strips and attached them above and below the willow panel.Finished the card off with a button and Baker's twine.Next up, Birthday By the Numbers. Stamped the cupcake in Enchanted Evening, Sweet Blush and Orange Zest. Then stamped one of the Background Basics: Circles strips on either side of the cupcake in Sweet Blush.Stamped a sentiment, from Tag-its #10, and then finished the card off with a touch of glitter sprinkled onto the cupcake top, flame and randomly onto the background dots.How about some Tine Tags II. The stripy tags are from Tiny Tags II and the polka dot tag is from Tiny Tags I. Stamped them in Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet and Pure Poppy. Stamped the sentiment and then topped each tag with a bit of twine.Here's How: Pierce two hole at the top of each tag. Thread twine through the holes, as above.Thread the twine back through the top hole to create a loop.Then back to the front through the bottom hole. Thread both ends of the twine through the loop. Tighten the loop and repeat these sets through the holes of the remaining tags.Last but not lease, Tag-its #10. I created this card using the same cut out strip technique as used on the Celebrate Today and Every Day card from yesterdayHere's How: I started by stamping the circle tag in Summer Sunrise. Using my straight edge paper cutter, I cut to just outside of the tag image.Then trimmed around the tag by hand using my scissors.Stamped the remaining images, attached the tag panel to a Summer Sunrise card base and finished the card off with a Harvest Gold Button and silk ribbon.

Well, that's all of them!

  1. I love your new way of adding a strip of color to your project, that you also used yesterday! By cutting away the white! Looks gorgeous, great idea!!
    Hugs, Wendy

  2. These are just amazing! I love how clean & classy they look, and your clever touches.

  3. What a great tip to making one layer tags with the cord tied into the card! And don't you just love it that when you make a mistake, you discover a new neat trick while trying to mask the mistake. Just love your cut away solution with cardstock behind!

  4. Maille, I am a daily visitor to your blog and usually do not comment. However, I really need to tell you how much I enjoy your beautiful projects! You are so clever in your ability to think outside the box, and I always leave feeling so inspired. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent!

  7. Hi Maile, love your style. I just bought your bells and boughs stamp set, can't wait to get it!!

  8. Brilliant cards, Maile! LOve the way you attached the floss to the tags and the card with the cut out strip is sure to become a classic!

  9. Super cards! Your Willow card is lovely w/the emb sections. The circles stamp on your cupcake card looks great. I like the contract of pink and blue w/dots. The lovely day card looks great w/the stamped tags. Thanks for sharing the threading technique. Thanks for also showing how to cut the card front of your sweet birthday card. I'm glad to know how you cut around the circle frame to end up with just the one-piece card front. Super product release and another great post, Maile! :)
