Papertrey Ink November Release Countdown Day 1

Hi and welcome to Day 1 of the Papertrey Ink November Release Countdown. This release if full of Winter fun! Everything will be available for purchase beginning at 10 PM EST, Thursday, November 17th.

My first card features cutest snowmen created with  the new Simply Snowmen Stamps and Dies. The stamp set comes with lots of detail stamps to dress up your snowmen along with sentiments to add to your to your snowmen. 

I centered the snowmen on a pretty frame cut with the new Snowflake Fun Die. Behind the frame add a piece of patterned paper from the Bitty Big Collection in Sweet Blush. Then I cut of piece of Stamper's Select White Cardstock to fit the card front, lightly blended Simply Chartreuse Ink on the edges and stamped snowflakes from the stamp set. 

I added clear gems to the snowfalls to finish off the card.

My next two cards feature the Larger Than Life: Snow Die, the Larger Than Life: Snow Sentiments Stamp Set, and the Snowflake Banner Dies. I start by creating the background for this card. I cut a piece of Tropical Teal Card to fit the card front and used the new Casading Dots Hot Foil Plate to add the falling snow. 

Next I cut two simple trees with the new Simple Trees Dies. I centered the trees on the card front and then add the snow sentiment with the Larger Than Life: Snow Die. At the bottom I added the snowflakes with the the Snowflake Banners Die and a sentiment from the Larger Than Life: Snow Sentiments

I used the same products for the second card. I stenciled the background with the new Playful Dots Stencils. I used Versamark Ink and then embossed with white embossing powder to give the feel of snow. 

I added Moon Dust Stickles to edges of the snowflakes.

  1. I love your color choices , no quite traditional, but close enough to get that Christmas feeling. I also like the dotty foil and stenciling that adds to the snowy look. Very pretty.
