Papertrey November Release Projects..

Hey there! The Papertrey team will now be featuring any remaining projects that haven't been seen yet by release time before all the products go up in the shop on release night. Hopefully this will help you get even more creative ideas before you shop.

I've got a handful of projects to show you that feature some great new stamps and products being released this month. First up is a set of winter themed cards using Pine's Winter Penguin stamp set + dies, along with her Peace Be Still Impression Plate.
I love to send cards out after the holidays. Whether it be for thank you cards or just a pick-me-up type card during those long winter months, winter themed cards are just the ticket. I paired my goodies up with October Afternoon patterned papers, Fresh Snow PTI ribbon and a small tag from my shop for the sentiment.
Next up is a birthday card created with Pine's Tag-its #10 stamp set and the Block Alphabet dies by Nichole. The circular tag uses the Tag-its #10...and the larger *happy birthday* sentiment is from Pine's Birthday By the Numbers stamp set.
For the base of my card I used a fun new collection of goodies from My Mind's Eye called Kraft Funday Everyday. I stitched along the printed banners and then added a snippet of the cutest little circle garland from the collection. The die cut *happy* letters nestle right in between some stitching.
I went bright and cheery with this card that showcases Nichole's new Stitches & Swirls stamp set. I stamped and colored the floral images on the top of a button card from Button Boutique and along the bottom of my card. There are lots of mix and match flower combinations in this set. Some large, some small....a very homespun looking set that I just love. The patterned papers are from Basic Grey's Picadilly 6 x 6 paper pad. Ribbon is Fine Linen.
On the button card, I topped the pinked square with lots of tied Vintage Buttons + I added the word *hi* to the button card using the Block Alphabet dies. The die comes in one solid sheet with the letters held together with wire thin metal. You can opt to leave the die as one large piece or cut the letters apart with wire snips. Right now I'm leaving all the letters in tact. I cut small scraps of paper that fit over the letters and then run the entire die through my Cuttlebug.
Last but not least is a sympathy card created with Beth's Willow stamp set and coordinating dies. I used the new Cover Plate: Quatrefoil die to create a mask for some light misting. Simply use the die to cut a cardstock mask, lay that over your card front, then mist lightly. I love the soft look without adding a lot of layers. I finished the card off with a simple button tied with brown baker's twine and a strip of lace from my vintage collection.
I hope you enjoy my projects! Be sure to check the rest of the Design Team's creations + Nichole's post tonight too.
