PTI November Release Day 2


Welcome back to day two of reveals for Papertrey Ink's November release! Today, we are introducing you to Into the Blooms: Cactus dies + Cover Plate: Stitched Florals die + Inside Greetings: Winter Wonderland stamps + Iconic Christmas stamps and dies + Deliver by Dec. 25th stamps and dies + Ho, Ho, Ho Stencils.

Don't let all the gazillion small pieces scare you with these flowers! I cut ALL the leaves and flowers from Bristol Smooth Surface then used blending brushes to color everything. The diagram that comes with the photo on the website has everything organized into groups which is helpful.

I smooshed Pumice Stone and Black Soot distress inks onto the flower pot then splattered with Black Soot (wanting to go with a distressed look to the finish).

: Inside Greetings: Winter Wonderland
INK: Pumice Stone, Black Soot distress inks; Pale Peony, Raspberry Fizz, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise; Ocean Breeze, Grassy Knoll, Olive
PAPER: Soft Stone, White, True Black; Bristol Smooth Surface
DIES: Into the Blooms: Cactus, Border Bling: Joy Frame, Love to Layer: Ovals
OTHER: Playful Dots stencil; Liquitex modeling paste; Stitched rectangle die

<-- Inside of card

1. Add texture to your card with pastes and stencils.
2. Layer your sentiment dies with at least 3 layers to give it dimension and  sturdiness.
3. Use blending brushes to add the color to the leaves and flowers.

This time I smooshed distress inks in a couple of coral shades and three different green shades on Bristol paper. I then die cut the pieces with emphasis on darker shades for the outline portions of the petals.

PAPER: Bristol Smooth Surface, Harvest Gold, Bitty Big: Harvest Gold, White
DIES: Into the Blooms: Cactus, Cover Plate: Stitched Florals, Delicate Doilies, Love to Layer: Rectangles

<<--- Inside 

1. Use stencils in tone on tone ink and paper for a subtle pattern.
2. Cut a doily die in half to add a delicate detail to the design.
3. Smoosh a variety of distress inks onto a sheet of water color paper then cut out the flowers, leaves and vase. It will give you a variety of color shades with little effort. 

This stitched cover plate will be one I grab to use over and over! 

The next two stamp sets I combined to create 5 tags. I never seem to have enough gift tags and generally am scrambling at the last minute to create some!

This second Christmas cactus card is gorgeous surprise! I never would have come up with that color combo, but it is so pretty. The tags are great! I have a thing for tags. You can always use more!
