Release In Review

Good morning and welcome back for this month's Release In Review post for Papertrey Ink's new release countdown. I have a few more projects to share, so let's get to them!

I'd like to start today with a card I made with Holiday Greens, Holiday Greens Borders, and Keep It Simple: Happy Holidays.

Happy Holidays Geenery Card

I started by stamping a Rustic Cream card base with the cypress image in Spring Moss and Simply Chartreuse inks. Then, I added a couple of pine boughs in Ripe Avocado and Olive Twist. From there, I stamped and die cut a variety of Holiday Greens foliage.

Next, I die cut a Sentiment Splits: Horizontal Angle shape from Pure Poppy cardstock and sponged it with Americana ink. I heat embossed the Keep It Simple: Happy Holidays sentiment and adhered that layer to the card front. Then, I arranged the Holiday Greens images and adhered them to the card front with flat and foam adhesives. A Rustic Jute twine bow was the perfect finishing touch on this rustic number.

Next up is Maile's Splits: Merry & Bright set. I wanted to keep this card fairly cool and wintery.

Merry & Bright Splits Card

I started by partially die cutting the Splits: Merry & Bright frame from white cardstock. I stamped the image from the set using Spring Rain ink and then heat embossed the sentiment in the opening. Next, I sponged Winter Wisteria ink onto a white card base.

I mounted the Splits panel into place with foam tape and added a strip of silver foil paper below the bottom edge. Then, I used clear rhinestones to embellish the Splits frame.

And lastly this month, I have a tag made using Dawn's Ombré Sentiments: Christmas.

Jingle Bells Tag

I began by die cutting the Tag Sale #9 shape out of Green Parakeet and white cardstocks. The white layer was stamped with the stripe border from Candy Cane Christmas using Pure Poppy ink. I also included the "to:" and "from:" from Keep It Simple: To & From in Smokey Shadow ink.

Jingle Bells Tag 2

Next, I heat embossed the sentiment from Ombré Sentiments: Christmas onto my Green Parakeet Tag. I then stamped the polka dots in Green Parakeet and sponged around the edges a bit with New Leaf. I tied the two tags together with Pure Poppy Twill and embellished with a single jingle bell and a bit of white crochet thread. I can't wait to use this tag one someone's package this year. The bell really makes it!

Thank you so much for joining me today! The other ladies are sharing the rest of their release projects too, so make sure to pop in on Nichole, Amy, Ashley, Betsy, Danielle, Dawn, Heather, KayLaurie, and Melissa for more beautiful projects. Have a great day and I'll see you again soon!
