Nativity Inspiration + Treetops Glisten

Hello and welcome to day 5 of the Papertrey Ink September countdown! Today's nativity themed products are truly beautiful!  Perfect for Christmas projects of all kinds. I hope after this design team challenge that you are inspired to create your own heartfelt crafts this holiday season.
To start things off I've pulled together the Petite Places: Nativity stamps plus die and the Scene It: Bethlehem die to create a 3D globe tag.
I built the nativity scene on top of a base that was cut from gold luxe cardstock using the Scene It: Scalloped Tag Base die.
The Petite Places: Nativity stamp set was used once again for this little tag.
I turned this Ribbon Slider die cut into a traditional tag (like I did in yesterday's blog post) and stamped it in a color combo of kraft, scarlet jewel and true black.
For this one layer card I pulled out the Petite Places: Nativity and O Holy Night stamp sets.
On top of this kraft striped pattern paper sheet (from the Treetops Glisten paper pad) I stamped all of the images in true black.  It's super simple but still makes a bold statement. 
Here's a second super simple card. It too was created using a sheet from the Treetops Glisten paper pad. 
This time I touched up the treetops with a touch of glitter and fished the card off with a die cut sentiment. 

Well, that concludes today's look at  the nativity themed products. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning September 15th.  More details on these products can be found at the Papertrey Ink blog.

  1. Wonderful projects! I enjoy the CAS look a lot!

  2. You are the best, Maile! You've captured the feeling of the Nativity scene so beautifully with just a few elements. So pure.

  3. great that stripe one!

  4. The addition of the little wooden star makes that Christmas card perfect. I like how you stamped the nativity elements around the sentiment. Very nicely done, Maile.
