PTI Countdown Day 1...

Welcome to Day 1 of the Papertrey Ink, October Release Countdown.  This release is full of some gorgeous new Christmas goodies, paper and.....a new color!  Today I am showcasing the new set called Enclosed: Wreath.

For this first card, I used Sentiment Splits: Curve Vertical Die and the new Pure Poppy + White Basics Paper to create the card front.  I cut a wreath die and stamped the leaves and berries in Simply Chartreuse, Pure Poppy and Scarlet Jewel.

I cut the 'peace' out in Gold Adhesive Paper to frame the wreath.  And to finish it off, I added dots of Glossy Accents to the wreath to make the berries pop.

To show another way to use Enclosed: Wreath, I made a tag.  A fun find today...Monthly Moments: Journal Card 6 die, which is the large tag I used here....

....fits perfectly with the Text Block dies.  I used the Text Block: Christmas die for this tag.  I added it in white with a layer of vellum behind it, after stamping the Enclosed: Wreath on the journal card base.  I added in some Ripe Avocado Saddle Stitch Ribbon and bells tied with red twine to finish of the card.

For my last card, I made one with a little different size. This card is 5 1/2" x 3 3/4".  I used Basic Bookmark 3 in the background but cut out only the bottom of the bookmark to use on the top and bottom of the background piece.  Next, I stamped the Rustic White panel with the new Fair Isle Borders in Pure Poppy.

I cut out the sentiment only in the Enclosed: Wreath frame in Gold Adhesive paper and then stamped the rest of the sentiment in black ink.

I hope you have enjoyed today's projects.  There is lots more to see over at Nichole's blog.  I'll be back in a few days with the first group post for October.  Hope to see you then!
