Winter Florals...

We are back with another Papertrey Ink countdown post! We are previewing more new stamps and dies being released on Oct. 15th at 10pm EST at Papertrey Ink. First, I've used the new Spruce & Sprigs stamp set and dies. I must have been in a red and green mood, as you'll see in all of my projects today!
On white cardstock, I stamped the pine boughs in a circle to resemble a wreath and added some die cut berries over the top from Spruce & Sprigs.
Strips of the different Holiday Plaid papers were adhered to the top, along with a strip of gold tape, which was from the Luxe Letterpress kit awhile back.
Really love how these turned out. They have a lot of interest, yet they're still flat for mailing.

Thank You card set:
STAMPS: Spruce & Sprigs
INK: Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy
PAPER: Holiday Plaid paper pad, white cardstock
DIES: Spruce & Sprigs
OTHER: gold tape -Luxe Letterpress kit.
Next up are the Botanical Blocks III stamp set and the Botanical Blocks Basics dies used on this tag.
 The Botanical Blocks III floral design was stamped with Versamark ink, then heat embossed with white embossing powder onto watercolor paper. I used watercolor pencils to color in the design. Then with a bit of clean water, smoothed out the pencil lines, which creates a pretty watercolor look, and the raised embossing keeps the watercolor inside the lines!

Happy Holidays Tag:
STAMPS: Botanical Blocks III
INK: True Black, Versamark
PAPER: Holiday Plaid paper pad, white cardstock, watercolor paper
DIES: Botanical Blocks Basics, Tag Sale: Quilted
OTHER: white embossing powder, watercolor pencils, seam binding - Zipperstop.com.

Last is a new cover plate called Cover Plate: Winter Floral. I put another piece of cardstock under it when running it through my Cuttlebug, which caused it to dry emboss the paper instead of cutting out the design.
The Spruce & Sprigs stamp set and dies were used again on this card. The sentiment is stamped with Tucked In: Holiday. And the "peace" word was cut with the previously released Wet Paint: Holiday dies.

Peace card:
STAMPS: Spruce & Sprigs, Tucked In: Holiday
INK: Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy, True Black
PAPER: white, gray
DIES: Cover Plate: Winter Floral, Spruce & Sprigs, Wet Paint Holiday
OTHER: none.

That's it for me for today! The new products you see here today will be available October 15th at 10pm EST at Papertrey Ink. Here are the other design team members' wonderful blogs...stop by and visit them to see more!
