PTI Release in Review...

So, today's the day!  Have you been loving everything that you've seen so far?  I have loved the fun stamps and dies in this Papertrey Release.  I have several things to share today with lots of pictures.  Remember, everything will be available tonight at 10pm EST in the Papertrey Ink store.

First up is a little snowman stitching project....


I used the new Snow man stitching dies to make this fun little wall hanging/gift.  I layered it all up and stitched the snowman onto the fabric background.  I added in a couple extra stitches to make some snowflakes.  This project was inspired by a project on flickr you can see HERE.

I added in a bow and a tag, using sentiments from the new Snow Globe Additions.  


Birthday Classics: November is a fun one this month.  I do love the font...


 I stamped the tiny banner in the background to give the allusion it was a long banner.  I added in the sentiment on top, on a white square with just a tad of true black peaking out for some contrast.  


The next stamp set is called Jolly Holiday.  I love all the funs images in the set, along with some fun sentiments.


I stamped the trees along in the bottom, added in a sentiment on top and then gave each tree a Lemon Tart star.  I added in a strip of red foil card stock along the bottom for a pop of color.  



This next card I made with my friend Merry in mind!  I have friends and family who celebrate Hanukkah so I am happy to have this set and make some cards for them.  I love the candles that come separate so you can make your own designs.  I layered this sentiment onto the card base with a strip of black showing through and then added Happy Hanukkah from the new Keep it Simple: Hanukkah.


Lastly, I have a tag using the new Painted Poinsettias.  


I stamped the flower and then the second image in scarlet jewell.  Instead of adding in the 3rd image, I used Copics to do a little shading.  I added in the flowers and some pearls for the flower center.  


Thanks so much for stopping in today!  I hope you have enjoyed my release projects.  Here is a list of more to check out....
