Nativity Inspiration...

Papertrey Ink has a new nativity stamp set and some dies coming out this month, so today we are previewing the new products. My first project is a very easily mass produced tag that you could use on a package or napkin wrap like I have done here. This tag is cut with the new Minute To Make: Holiday Tags die and stamped with Petite Places: Nativity.

A bit of garland is wrapped around the napkin, and I made a sugar coated candy cane (with pipe cleaners and fine glitter). I might use real ones for my dinner table, but these are pretty cute too. :)

O Holy Night tag:
STAMPS: Petite Places: Nativity
INK: True Black, Pure Poppy

PAPER: White cardstock, red plaid - Simple Stories' Summer Fresh

DIES: Minute To Make Holiday Tags
OTHER: pipe cleaners, fine glitter, jingle bell, garland - craft supply, tinsel - Melissa Frances.

Here is a card with Petite Places: Nativity. I'm not going to lie...I have a hard time knowing what colors to use with the nativity set. So this one is a little unconventional. Papers are from the Nostalgic Notions kit. I can't wait to see what everyone else did with this set.

The steeple is cut from a new die called Petite Ornament: Square. I just used the front of it, not the whole die, backed it with more Nostalgic Notions paper and then added some pieces from Petite Places: Nativity dies.

O Holy Night card:
STAMPS: Petite Places: Nativity
INK: Enchanted Evening, Summer Sunrise
PAPER: White cardstock, Nostalgic Notions paper
DIES: Petite Ornament: Square, Petite Places: Nativity
OTHER: twine, sequin - Pretty Pink Posh, chipboard star- Pink Paislee.

The next project is a little 3D ornament and a sleeve to tuck it into.
To create the layers on the ornament, I used some new dies called Scene It: Bethlehem, and it's backed with the Scene It: Scalloped Tag Base.
This sleeve is die cut with the Front & Center #1 die and folded in half to create the pocket.

Oh Come Let Us Adore Him ornament and sleeve:
STAMPS: Petite Places: Nativity
INK: Enchanted Evening
PAPER: white, Classic Kraft; Simple Stories - Summer Fresh
DIES: Petite Places: Nativity, Front and Center die
OTHER: Pure Poppy ribbon, chipboard stars - Pink Paislee, gold tape, twine, fine glitter.

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

The "sleeve" for the ornament tag is so pretty too. Wish you would have shown a photograph of the of ornament tucked into the sleeve.

Both projects are gorgeous but I adore that card you made with the Nostalgic Notions paper as a background. It's a gem :) Wow!
