Gingerbread Lane...

Welcome to Day 2 of the Papertrey Ink countdown for September! We begin showing previews of new products on the 10th of each month and continue until the 15th when everything is released for the month! If you'd like to see peeks from Day 1, see Nichole's blog for all of the links. There are some great Christmas goodies coming out this month! On the first card, I used the new Gingerbread Lane stamps and dies, and the Loop De Loop border die!
I used the Card Base-ics #1 die to cut the background with Dark Chocolate Patterned Paper, then I just stamped a few of the gingerbread boys and girls with Classic Kraft ink and hearts from the set with Sweet Blush ink.
I added a little 3x3" envelope behind the sentiment for a gift card, which slides in and out.
Friends Holiday card:
STAMPS: Gingerbread Lane by PTI
INK: Classic Kraft, Sweet Blush, True Black by PTI
PAPER: White cardstock, 3x3 Kraft envelope, Dark Chocolate Pattern Pack by PTI
DIES: Loop De Loop, Card Base-ics #1, Gingerbread Lane dies by PTI
OTHER: Scrap Pantry Twine on Etsy, Pure Poppy button by PTI, 3x3 kraft envelope by PTI, floral pin, pearls by Melissa Frances.

Next, I filled a Clearly Creative Card Box with handmade cards, decorated with Gingerbread Lane stamps and dies and the Loop De Loop die once again.
The little house die is sweet as can be, and the Loop De Loop die works great as smoke for the chimney!  The felt snowflake is cut with the new Snowflake Medley dies.
Before adhering the finished piece to the top, I tied some twine around the box. (The other ends of the box are the opening ends, so you can still get the cards in and out.)
And I love this sweet sentiment...

Happy Holidays Gift Box:
STAMPS: Gingerbread Lane
INK: Classic Kraft, Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores, Sweet Blush, True Black
PAPER: Lily Bee Designs (plaid); Pure Poppy, white, Aqua Mist cardstock
DIES: Loop De Loop, Gingerbread Lane, Snowflake Medley
OTHER: Clearly Creative Card Box by PTI, Scrap Pantry Twine, Melissa Frances pearl, white felt.

Last is a treat bag made out of a glassine bag. I used the banner die from Fabulous Frames and stamped a Gingerbread Lane greeting onto Spring Moss cardstock with Ripe Avocado ink. 
To tuck the little banner under the gingerbread girl's arm, I just snipped up into her arm a bit with scissors and slid the banner under her arm.

Sweet Season's Greetings glassine bag:
STAMPS: Gingerbread Lane
INK: Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy, Classic Kraft
PAPER: Pure Poppy Pattern Pack, white and Spring Moss cardstock
