Release day...

Today is the 15th, and that means the new products for October go up for sale tonight at Papertrey Ink!

First, I want to apologize for the good camera is broken, so I'm using a camera that is not as good, and it's been raining and raining here, so these were taken in my basement with florescent sorry. I will take new photos soon. Also, I kept some of my cards on the simpler side this month, since I spent so much time on the December Daily! :) I ran out of time to make them more elaborate. I hope you like a simple card now and then.

This card is made with Layered Postmarks: Holiday.

I cut out the tree with the Layered Postmarks: Holiday die and stamped the tree in the center of the opening.

A Merry Christmas to You card:
STAMPS: Layered Postmarks: Holiday
INK: Ripe Avocado, True Black
PAPER: Jillibean Soup - Christmas Eve Chowder (dot) and Pink Paislee's City Sidewalks (stripe), Ripe Avocado Pattern Pack by PTI, Pure Poppy Pattern Pack by PTI
DIES: Holly Jolly die collection
OTHER: twine, brad by MME.


I really like how this one turned out, it's made with the new Peaceful Pinecones stamp set. I used a Mat Stack die to cut the center out and popped the Ripe Avocado cardstock up for dimension. It's all stacked onto a Card Base-ics die.

I also used brown flocking on the tops of the pinecones. Remember flocking? A little bit of glue was dabbed onto the tops of the pinecones and then the flocking was sprinkled over the top. Let it dry before adding it to your card!

Merry Christmas Pinecone card:
STAMPS: Peaceful Pinecones
INK: Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado, True Black
PAPER: Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate Pattern Pack, white cardstock, LilyBee (stripe)

DIES: Mat Stack 4 die, Card Base-ics #2 die
OTHER: button, twine, flocking.


Here's a quick card made with Heart-2-Heart #9 for a wedding or anniversary. I stamped the little pink heart string three times and die cut the birds, stamped them with Soft Stone ink and popped them up for dimension. Added a saying and two little hearts from the set also. Everything is on cream cardstock for a soft look.

Mr. and Mrs. card:
STAMPS: Heart-2-Heart #9
INK: Soft Stone, Sweet Blush, True Black, Pure Poppy
PAPER: Vintage Cream cardstock
DIES: Heart-2-Heart #9
OTHER: none.


This one is made with Snowflake Flurries. I used them as ornaments instead of snowflakes and stitched the strings onto the card with my sewing machine.

Pink and green make a cute retro-looking card. My girls saw a pink Christmas tree at Target the other day and want one for their bedrooms, which was the inspiration for this card!

Have a Joyous Holiday card:
STAMPS: Snowflake Flurries
INK: Raspberry Fizz, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, True Black
PAPER: white cardstock, Limeade Ice Pattern Pack
DIES: none
OTHER: twine, Melissa Frances pearls.


Snowflake Flurries was used once again as pretty accents to a birthday card, along with the Over Under Easy set. This set has many nice sentiments with some pretty swirl accents to add!

The Best is Yet to Come card:
STAMPS: Snowflake Flurries, Over Under Easy
INK: Enchanted Evening, Spring Rain, Pure Poppy, Harvest Gold, Sweet Blush
PAPER: Enchanted Evening, Pure Poppy, white, Aqua Mist
DIES: Layerz Mat Stack 1 die, Pinking Shears Border die,

OTHER: Doodlebug brads.

Last is a Hanukkah card, and I struggled with this one a little bit, because I am not very familiar with this Jewish holiday. I wasn't sure if the Star of David should be a particular color? Forgive me if it is. I thought the Enchanted Evening, Aqua Mist and Autumn Rose colors were pretty together.
Happy Hanukkah card:
STAMPS: Menorah Medley
INK: True Black
PAPER: Aqua Mist, Enchanted Evening, Vintage Cream
DIES: Menorah Medley
OTHER: Autumn Rose button and felt, Vintage Cream ribbon, Lily Bee paper, corner rounder, floss.

LOVE your first card. The more I see Layered Postmarks: Holiday the more I convince myself I must have it. Love all the different patterns you used. Just divine! Thanks for all your hard work this release and I'm a simple girl so simple cards are always welcome in my book! :)

Your cards are so classy~I love the retro one! My girlies want pink trees too (well, the youngest would probably prefer lime green). ;)

Your cards are wonderful. And, you nailed Chanukah! BTW-any color is fine for Chanukah. The more creative the better. People tend to use white and blue for Jewish cards, because that is the color of the Israeli flag. But, just as you wouldn't always want everything in red/white/blue, Jewish occasion cards can be whatever color you choose.
