Release day: October...

Today is the day we get to show you all of the rest of the new stuff coming out at Papertrey Ink this month! I saw some gorgeous sugary candy canes on Pinterest and knew I had to make some, so I went looking for red and white pipe cleaners. I actually found these that were already twisted with the red and white together at Michaels! I was going to twist them myself with red and white pipe cleaners, but I didn't have to. The hard part was already done for me. So I trimmed them at different lengths, bent the tops, then added glossy accents and sprinkled some fine glitter onto them.
Love how they turned out, so I had to use them on some projects! You might have noticed them yesterday on my cocoa and peppermint jars.

Using the new Stitched Tag die, I made some tags to hold gift cards/money with a candy cane added for fun. I punched a hole in the front of the tag to slide the candy cane through, then stitched the front of the tag to the back. You could use real candy canes if you wanted to. I didn't find any right now, since it's October, so these worked perfectly! I added a die cut and stamped Freshly Fallen snowflake to the front which is tied on with tinsel!

The sentiments were stamped with Painted Poinsettias and a jingle bell tied onto the center of the snowflake. These would make great gift card/money holders.

Holiday Joy tags:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Freshly Fallen, Painted Poinsettias
INK: True Black, Hawaiian Shores
PAPER: Vintage Cream, Aqua Mist
DIES: Stitched Tag die, Freshly Fallen dies
OTHER: Tinsel - Melissa Frances, jingle bells/pipe cleaners/cream floss - craft supply, fine glitter - Doodlebug.

This card is cut and stamped with the new Painted Poinsettias stamps and dies.
The gold frame was cut out with Phrase Play #8 die, and I just trimmed the joy sentiment out of the frame and left it out. The poinsettias were stamped with Lavender Moon ink, then Pure Poppy ink over the top. The veins were stamped and embossed with gold. The three-step stamps are so neat!

Christmas Cheer card:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Painted Poinsettias
INK: True Black, Lavender Moon, Pure Poppy, Versamark
PAPER: gold paper - Luxe Letterpress kit, Vintage Cream, vellum
DIES: Painted Poinsettias dies
OTHER: gold embossing powder, gold sequins.

These are the new Phrase Play #9 stamps and dies. I just pulled parts of the die out and used them on this card instead of using the frame as it comes.
The background was created by stamping a dot from the Polka Dot Basics III stamp set and then they were embossed with silver embossing powder.

Winter Joy & Peace card:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Phrase Play #9, Polka Dot Basics III
INK: True Black
PAPER: White Aqua Mist, Scarlet Jewel Pattern Pack
DIES: Phrase Play #9
OTHER: Sequins- Pretty Pink Posh, fine glitter, silver embossing powder.

You may have seen sneaks of this tree in my previous photos from the past couple of days. I made a peppermint candy tree and a tag using the new Jolly Holiday stamps and dies and the Snow Globe Sentiments stamps! I've given these out before to bus drivers and such, and everyone loves them!

You'll need a 9" high white styrofoam tree from the craft store. White is important. If you get a green one, it will show through the candies and won't look as good as the white. You'll also need a pack of straight pins with white heads on them like these. (You can find them at Walmart or a craft store in the sewing section.) The peppermints were $1 per bag at Target, and I used 3 small bags! Starting at the bottom, insert a pin into one end of the peppermint candy wrapper, and poke it into the tree. Go all the way around the bottom, making sure each candy touches or slightly overlaps the next one. Then do the next row up alternating the candies in between the ones below (as shown). This way it really fills in the tree.

The tag was cut with the Tag Sale #4 die, then I cut and stamped the Jolly Holiday pieces and the sentiment is from Snow Globe Sentiments. Again I just used a pin to poke through the tree and hold the tag on.

Peppermint Candy Tree and Be Jolly! Tag:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Jolly Holiday, Snow Globe Sentiments
INK: True Black, New Leaf, Pure Poppy
PAPER: White
DIES: Jolly Holiday, Tag Sale #4
OTHER: chalkboard paint, twine, straight pins, peppermint candies, 9" styrofoam tree.

This one was simple, and I really like how it turned out using the new Merry Kiss-mas stamps and dies. 
The leaves were die cut and embossed in gold. The font is awesome, love it. I added fine glitter around the edges of the card.

Christmas Kiss card:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Merry Kiss-mass
INK: Pure Poppy, True Black, Versamark
PAPER: white, Classic Kraft, Pure Poppy Pattern Pack
DIES: Merry Kiss-mass
OTHER: pearl by Melissa Frances.

Here I used Festival of Lights and Keep It Simple: Hanukkah. 
The pretty stars were stamped with Simply Chartreuse ink, the "Love & Light" in Tropical Teal ink, then I used a Copic marker, BG 10 to color around the stars to add some shading. A little bit of fine glitter was added to the stars. (If I had to do it again, I wouldn't use watercolor paper, because the inks bleed a little bit on the watercolor paper! It would work better on regular cardstock. Would you believe I ran out of white and cream cardstock? Eeek!)

Wishing You Love & Light card:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Festival of Lights, Keep It Simple: Hanukkah
INK: Simply Chartreuse, True Black, Tropical Teal

This card was stamped with Birthday Classics: November. I used Leaf Prints dies and the dipped die cut technique again on these die cuts.
