More Papertrey Ink Release: Cloche Quarters and Pen & Ink: Christmas

Good morning, all, and welcome back for the last official day of Papertrey Ink October release inspiration! I'm back today with projects featuring Betsy's new Cloche Quarters: Winter Fillers and Cloche Quarters: Sentiments sets as well as Nichole's Pen & Ink: Christmas. Let's get to it!

I was itching to make a few tags, so that's what I decided to get into for today's post. I started by creating this shaker tag with Betsy's Cloche Quarters set.

Snowman Shaker Tag

I began by die cutting two Tag Sale Quilted shapes, one from White and one from Aqua Mist. I heat embossed the Keep It Simple "To:" and "From:" greetings in red powder on the Aqua Mist tag and set it aside. Next, I masked off the edges of the white tag and sponged Aqua Mist ink onto the center of the tag. Leaving the masks in place, I stamped the falling snow from Dash Away All, also in Aqua Mist ink. Then, I stamped the Cloche Quarters Sentiments greeting in Pure Poppy.

Next, I cut a square of Bitty Big: Pure Poppy paper and die cut a window from the center using the circle die from the Noted: Scalloped Square Die Collection. I adhered a piece of clear cardstock to the back of the Pure Poppy paper and added strips of foam tape around the outside edge. Then, I used the Strip Stitch Die to create "snow" to fill my shaker. I just die cut it a few times from white cardstock and piled up the tiny dots. Once I had enough "snow" I adhered the clear/Pure Poppy square into place on the white tag.

Next, I die cut and stamped the snowman and trees from the Cloche Quarters set. I also die cut a snowbank using the Cover Plate: Waves and some xyroned, white cardstock. I adhered the snowbank to the tag with foam tape, glittered it, and then tucked the trees and snowman around it. To finish the tag, I stacked the two Tag Sale shapes and strung them together with Simply Chartreuse ribbon. An Aqua Mist button and a bit of Baker's Twine round out the look.


Next up, I have a set of Santa Claus tags I made by pairing Santa Stationery with the new Pen & Ink: Christmas.

Santa Must Like You Tags

I began by die cutting three Tag Sale #10 shapes from white cardstock. I stamped them with the Santa from Santa Stationery and colored them with Copic markers.

Then, I used red powder to heat emboss the greeting from Pen & Ink: Christmas onto each tag. Once they had cooled, I used a clear Wink Of Stella pen to add glittery wisps through Santa's beard.

I also used flocking to embellish Santa's cap and Nuvo Ruby Slippers glitter drops to accent the holly berries. To finish things off, I tied green baker's twine to each tag for easy hanging.
