Hi there! Welcome to day two of the September Papertrey Ink countdown.  I'm here today to share a few samples using one of this months new stamp sets... O'Tannenbaum. This collection of multi-step holiday trees gives you tons of options for Christmas and winter projects! This set allows you to add color and detail quickly and efficiently, especially when mass producing. Pair them up with this great handwritten font and everything will come together perfectly!

Keep in mind that these items will be available for purchase beginning September 15th at Papertrey Ink.  Plus, more info and a detail look at these items can be found on Nichole Heady blog today.

So, let me get right to today's projects...
This first card sets the color theme of my cards today... a combo of ocean tides, pinefeather, gold and rustic white.  A rustic yet traditional color scheme, which I've paired with a few modern touches and layouts.
To give this simple card a bit of interest I stamped the tree base image using the Rock-n-Roll stamping technique.  The gold touches spiff it up a bit. This sentiment is from the soon to be released Keep It Simple: Christmas.
This next card lets the gorgeous handwritten font take center stage.
I randomly stamped the "Season's" portion of the sentiment in the colors of pinefeather, ocean tides and limeade ice.  Honestly, any pretty looking sentiment could be used in the same fashion. A few stamped stars and a gold strip finish this card off perfectly. 
A fun angled edgy look helps to modernize the look of this color combo and card.
I inked up this tree using the same technique as on the top card, giving this tree a two toned look.  Finished it off nicely with a touch of gold inked stars.  The sentiment is from the soon to be released Season's Greetings.

Well, that concludes today's look at O'Tannenbaum. Just remember... this set will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning September 15th
