PTI Release Time Day #1

It's that time again to reveal the October release items at Papertrey Ink. Today, we are introducing you to Skate Into the Holidays stamps and dies + Border Bling Candy Canes 1 & 2 + Fancy Snowflake Frame dies + Christmas Your Way stamps and dies.

The skate set is so versatile with some winter foliage included. I've seen work boots that serve as a "vase" and decided to go that route with the skate.
I embossed the blade with silver embossing powder and added some Crystal Stickles to the bow for a little extra shine. The candy cane border dies are a really fun touch for holiday cards!

STAMPS: Skate Into the Holidays.
INK: True Black, Pure Poppy, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Simply Chartreuse, Vintage Jadeite, Ocean Tides, Pinefeather, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores; Versamark.
PAPER: White, True Black, Pure Poppy.
DIES: Border Bling: Candy Cane Frame 1, Skate Into the Holidays, Love to Layer: Rectangles, Love to Layer: Beautiful Bracket.
OTHER: Silver embossing powder; Crystal Stickles.

Next, I have two cards using the gorgeous new fancy snowflake die. I kept them pretty simple so you could see the intricate snowflake better.

The base is patterned paper which could be easy to replicate with inks or water colors. 

All of the florals were die cut from white CS then stamped with several inks to color blend for a variegated look.
STAMPS: Christmas Bouquet, Christmas Your Way.
INK: vintage Jadeite, Pinefeather, Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse, Summer Sunrise, Melon Berry, Orange Zest, Lovely Lady, Hibiscus Burst, True Black.
PAPER: Patterned paper, White.
DIES: Fancy Snowflake Frame, Christmas Your Way.
OTHER: Martha Stewart super fine glitter.

This next card uses a Yupo base with alcohol inks that was in my leftover pile. 

Since there was a wee bit of gold mixative in the background, I opted for gold gems, metallic gold circle and gold embossed sentiment.

STAMPS: Christmas Your Way.
INK: Versarmark, Alcohol inks.
PAPER: Yupo, White, Metallic Gold.
DIES: Christmas Your Way, Fancy Snowflake Frame, Circle, Stitched rectangle.
OTHER: Gold embossing powder.


So that's all for day one of reveals! Stay tuned for more Christmas and winter items tomorrow.  ~Wanda
