city scene...

The Papertrey Ink team is counting down to their new October releases! Everything you see here in the next few days will be available on the 15th at Papertrey Ink. Today we are sharing projects made with City Scene, City Scene Sentiments and City Scene Christmas Sentiments, along with the dies to match.

I stamped a few fun buildings, trees, the road, and then added some embossing powder to the tops of everything to make it snowy. (I didn't heat the embossing powder, just used it for the look of snow!) I actually used the nose from Come All Ye Faithful Additions to add the ball ornaments to the one tree!
It's Christmas Time in the City card:
STAMPS: City Scene, Come All Ye Faithful Additions, City Scene Christmas Sentiments
INK: True Black, Classic Kraft, Pure Poppy, New Leaf
PAPER: gray - craft supply, white

DIES: none
OTHER: corner rounder, embossing powder.

This one is more modern than I'm used to, but I just thought it would be so fitting for this sentiment.
The buildings are die cut in gray and added over the top of Smokey Shadow cardstock. The sentiment is embossed with white powder for more contrast, and the stars are stamped with Fresh Snow ink.
The Skyline is the Limit card:
STAMPS: City Scene, City Scene Sentiments
INK: Fresh Snow, Versamark
PAPER: gray - craft supply, Smokey Shadow

DIES: City Scene
OTHER: white embossing powder.

Visit the rest of the team to see more with these cool city scenes stamps!
