September Papertrey Ink Countdown - Day 2

Hello again, crafty friends, and welcome back to my September Papertrey Ink countdown posts! I have a couple of additional cards for you today featuring the Global Greetings: Christmas mini stamp set. Let's get to it, shall we?

Today's first card features a trio of ornaments as well as one of the Italian sentiments from the set.

I stated by stamping the harlequin background block three times in Limeade Ice ink onto a white cardstock panel. I die cut one an ornament from the center block and mounted the panel to a white card base. Next, I stamped the sentiment in the negative space left from die cutting my ornament. Then, I die cut and stamped two more ornaments from the Vintage Ornaments set.

I used the drippy icicle image with a glue pad and added glitter overtop my Aqua Mist images. I fashioned hooks from some earring wire I had lying around and adhered those to the back of my ornaments before mounting them to the card front with foam tape. I finished the card with a few small bows made from 1/4" silk ribbon that had been colored with a Copic.

My second card today uses one of the German sentiments from Global Greetings: Christmas.

I started by stamping the large mistletoe image in both Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado inks (though it's difficult to see the Spring Moss in the photos). I then stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate and the berries in Fresh Snow.

I matted that panel with a piece of white cardstock that I had cut with the Edgers #1 die and mounted it to a Pure Poppy card front that had been textured with the Rustic Burlap Impression Plate. I used Crystal Stickles on each of the berries to give it a little sparkle and embellished the mistletoe sprig with a ribbon bow once they had dried.

That's all for me today folks. Thank you for visiting with me today! I have a few more projects up my sleeve for tomorrow, so I hope you'll join me then. In the meantime, make sure to check in with NicholeAshleyBetsyCristinaDanielleDawnErinHeatherLauraMaile, and Melissa to see even more of this month's new releases. See you soon!
