PTI Release in Review...

Have you loved this latest PTI Release?  So many fun new things right?  I have had a ball creating with each new die and all the new stamp sets.  Today I have a line up of my final projects.

This first card showcases the new set called O'Tannenbaum.


 I stamped the tree onto the smaller panel and the sentiment from Wet Paint Holiday.  I impressed that front panel with the Linen Impression plate.  Then I layered it with another piece of white card stock, before attaching it to a plain white card base.  


On this next card, I used Santa's Sleigh.  


If you know me, you know I am not a big fan of coloring...only because I am not good at it.  So this adorable little image was right up my alley.  Because it was easy!  I added some BG10 Copic around the wreath and blended it out....which I was slightly proud of because I don't blend well usually.  Then I just colored the rest of the image in with various other Copics.  There is a little dot of Stickles on each of the berries in the wreath for some sparkle!  I stamped the sentiment on one of the banner dies and heat embossed it and then folded it up.  I added in some Pure Poppy Striped paper at the bottom to tie all the reds together. 


Birthday Classics: October was used for this next card...


I die cut several leaves using the Leaf Print dies.  I heat embossed the sentiment onto Vellum with some White Filigree Embossing powder.  Then I attached it to the card with a little strip of hidden foam tape at the bottom and a mini clothespin.  I tied a twine bow on too, for more of a fall real.  Oh! I also added in some brown Copic mist with a Tim Holtz mister!  :)


Do you love the Phrase Play dies?  I do!!  Check out the newest in the line up...


I cut out the die and layered all the outside pieces onto a piece of vellum.  I attached everything with liquid glue and the cut the vellum from around the edges.  I popped it up on foam tape, on top of this fun piece of patterned paper.  I added in a  little enamel dot for a pop of color.  


This last card features Keep it Simple: Seasons Greetings and Wet Paint Holiday.


I stamped "seasons greetings" vertically to cover the card front.  Then I cut an opening near the bottom and added in a "greetings" behind the front panel.  I stamped "season's in Pure Poppy and then hand cut the sentiment before I popped it up on foam tape.  This is definitely a non-tradtional looking Christmas card but I thought it was kinda fun!  :)


So that is it for me today!  I can't believe the week has come to an end.  Do you have your lists ready?  Tell me what your favorite new stamp set is?  Or die?

Check out the rest of the DT!  I am sure they have amazing stuff to see!
