Introducing Paper Clippings: Joy To The World

Good morning! Welcome back to Papertrey Ink's September countdown. Today I have the pleasure of  helping introducing Betsy Veldman's newest Paper Clippings set. I know many of you have been waiting to see what Betsy has up her sleeve for her Christmas edition and I promise that Paper Clippings: Joy To The World is sure to make you folks very happy. Let's get on to some projects, shall we?

My first card today is a whimsical take, using the earth image as an ornament in place of the "O" in "JOY."

Joy To The World Ornament Card

I sponged a bit of Aqua Mist ink onto a white panel and then splattered speckles of Aqua Mist reinker to give it a little interest. Then, I stamped the Holiday Greens Borders in Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado inks. Next came the "J" and "Y" in Pure Poppy shaded with a bit of Scarlet Jewel. I added the sentiment from Jingle All The Way (more on this set soon) and the ornament string from Vintage Ornaments II before die cutting the bottom edge of the panel with the Edgers #1 die.

Next, I heat embossed the earth image onto white cardstock using clear embossing powder. I sponged the finished area with Enchanted Evening and Dark Indigo inks before die cutting. I also heat embossed the ornament hanger with silver powder and trimmed that out by hand. I used foam tape to mount the white panel to a card front that I'd already covered with striped Pure Poppy paper. Then I added the earth and ornament hanger in place, also with foam tape. Cute!

Second today I have a fairly traditional card to share.

Framed Joy To The World Card

I began by sponging a bit of Mint Julep ink onto a white card base. Next, I stamped the "Joy" and the earth in Pinefeather inks. Once those were fully dry, I heat embossed the star and the sentiment using gold powder.

Next, I stamped the banner onto an extra piece of white cardstock using Pure Poppy ink. That was followed by the sentiment in gold embossing and trimmed out by hand. I layered a Cover Plate: Delightful frame onto the stamped card base and then added the banner with foam tape. I added a rhinestone (colored to match) to the center of the star for a little extra sparkle.

Finally today, I have a more contemporary, watercolored card.

Watercolor Joy To The World Card

I began by heat embossing the sentiment onto watercolor paper using white powder. I color washed over the embossing with Aqua Mist reinker and sprayed the surface with shimmer spray before setting the panel aside to dry. In the meantime I stamped a Pure Poppy card base with polka dots using Americana ink.

Once the watercolor panel was dry I stamped the star using Tropical Teal ink and trimmed the edges at an angle. I attached that panel to the card front with foam tape and embellished with a baker's twine bow and rhinestone. I like the more casual, modern style and the subtle shimmer from the spray.

Thank you so much for joining me today! Make sure to check out Nichole, Betsy, Danielle, and Melissa for more projects featuring this month's release. Enjoy and I'll see you again tomorrow!
