Papertrey Ink November Release Countdown Day 4

Hi and welcome to Day 4 of the Papertrey Ink November Release Countdown. Today I have a set of tags and a new card to share with you. Everything will be available for purchase beginning at 10 PM EST, tomorrow, November 17th.

First up is a look at the new Winter Bench Stamp Set and coordinating Dies. I love the homey, cozy feel of this set. I decided I wanted the look of a bench sitting in the entry way of a warm home. I cut a piece of Bitty Big Collection, Spring Rain to fit the card front. Then I added a panel of Stamper's Select White Cardstock to the bottom half of the card. I scored lines with a Score-Pal to add to the look.

I stamped the bench in Antique Linen Ink and added the details with Classic Kraft Ink. Then I created all the details for scene and chose a sentiment for the sign. 

I love the details of the plaid blanket and a sentiment you can add to the pillow. Makes for a cozy scene!

Next up is a look at the Christmas Shaker Dies. You certainly could add these cute shakers to a card but I decided to go with tags. I really like adding one of my handmade tags to my Christmas packages and bag. I kept the tags pretty simple so they would be easy to mass produce. 

When you create a shaker you need to make a little room for your filling to be able to shake around. For these tags I cut the front die four times and then the solid tree, once from acetate and once from cardstock to cover the back of shakers. 

I glued to the acetate to the front die cut and glued the next three die cuts behind the acetate. 

Then I dropped in the sequins and covered the back with the solid die cut and added twine to the top of the tag. 

I hope you have enjoyed my look at the November Release. There will also be an Instagram Hop on Thursday. You can follow me on Instagram here
