PTI November Release Day #3

Welcome to day # 3 of reveals for the November release at Papertrey Ink! Today, we are introducing you to Hear the Bells stamps and dies + Winter Greetings stamps and dies. A Cheery Tree Stencils is part of the release but there's been a delay in the manufacturing company so it will not be available until later.

While browsing through patterned papers, I came across this background by BoBunny and thought it would be a perfect fit.

The bells were cut from a matte metallic gold paper then the details were embossed with silver powder.

STAMPS: Hear the Bells.
INK: Pure Poppy, Scarlet Jewel, Ocean Tides, Pinefeather; Rocky Slope, Metropolis; Versafine Clair Nocturne; Versamark.
PAPER: Father Christmas Collection 6x6" pad (BoBunny); Matte metallic gold; Vintage Cream, White.
DIES: Hear the Bells, Love to Layer: Deckled Edge; Border Bling: Postage Frames.
OTHER: Silver embossing powder.

Next, I have two cards using the Winter Greetings stamp/die set. I love when there are coordinating dies to cut out the larger sentiments!

1. Carry out the snow theme with a variety of sizes and paper textures in the snowflakes. 
2. Pop up the snowman and sentiment with foam tape to add dimension.
3. Stencil a dotted background to mimic snowfall.

STAMPS: Winter Greetings, Simply Snowmen.
INK: Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron distress; Versafine Clair Nocturne; Dark Chocolate, Orange Zest, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Sweet Blush; Misty Coast, Rocky Slope.
PAPER: White, Metallic Gold, Glitter Gold.
DIES: Layered Snowflakes (Drift, Crystal, Flurries), Winter Greetings, Simply Snowmen.
OTHER: Bubble Layering stencil; Slimline die.

I went with non-traditional colors on this winter card. Raspberry Fizz and Melon Berry are not my usual "go to" snow-themed colors.

1.  Create a sunburst pattern in the background using coordinating colors.
2. Add texture with twine and moonshine sequins.
3. Think outside the box with non-traditional colors such as Raspberry Fizz and Melon Berry.

STAMPS: Winter Greetings.
INK: Raspberry Fizz, Melon Berry.
PAPER: White, Sweet Blush, Beautiful Beads (pink and orange mix).
DIES: Snowflake Banners, Love to Layer: Scalloped Circles, Layered Snowflakes (Drift, Crystal, Flurries).
OTHER: Stitched rectangle dies.


That's it for today! Be sure to come back tomorrow for the final day of reveals in this month's release! ~Wanda
