PTI Release in Review...

I have lots of fun stuff to share today!  November's release over at Papertrey Ink has definitley been a fun one so please hang in there with me through all these photos!  :)

First let me show you how I used the Mat Stack 7 Basics stamp set and die.  I made a set of place cards for Thanksgiving!


I took the largest Mat Stack 7 die and scored it right down the middle.  I added in a little image from the stamp set, popped up on foam tape, then I stamped out the names using the Fresh Alphabet...best alphabet ever!!


These dies work AMAZING for place cards and have that great finished look.  AND they are SUPER easy!


Stamps: Mat Stack 7 Basics, Fresh Alphabet
Paper: Rustic Cream
Ink: Ripe Avocado, Canyon Clay, Dark Chocolate
Misc: Mat Stack 7 Die



When I saw the newest Monthly Moments die, I saw a tag.  I ran it through again with gold card stock so I could have some gold triangles.  I put a piece of washi behind the die and added in the gold triangles in place.  I misted the front of the tag with black Copic and then added in a strip of Gold Striped Washi.  I punched a hole in the top corner and used some black twine for the tag.  I think this will look adorable on a bottle of wine.


Stamps: Keep it Simple: Happy New Year
Paper: Stampers Select White, Gold Cardstock
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx
Misc: Gold Striped Washi, Banner Journal Card, Black Twine, Black Copic Mist



For this next card, I cut out the Journal Card 6 and stamped an image from Fair Isle Motifs until I had the tag covered except for just a small section of the bottom.  I added in a strip of gold yardstick at the bottom and then a snowflake from Fancy Flakes on top. The little gold star I added in with foam tape.  I popped up the whole tag on the card base and then cut the top off of the tag.  Last, I stamped the sentiment in black under the tag.


Stamps: Fair Isle Motifs and Holiday Thanks
Paper: Stampers Select White, Kraft, Gold Cardstock
Ink: Fresh Snow, Versafine Black Onyx
Misc: Journal Card 6, Fancy Flakes



I used several sentiments in the Happy New Year set and stamped out a colorful background.  I layered a pice of Hawaiian Shore cardstock and black washi.  The cutest most fun little number stamps are available this month and I love this so much!  I stamped and die cut 2015 on a sheet of labels and added them in.  Last, I heat embossed the clock image on the star die (from the Star Shaker dies) and sewed a few stitches on top to hold it in place.  


Here is a close up of Type Strip Numbers....

I made a tag with Pom Pom Pals.  I stamped the image and colored it in and then added it onto the Tag Sale #4 die.  I stamped the To: and From: on the back, after adding in some black and white twine.

Paper: Pure Poppy, Stampers Select White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo

I used the new Cover Plate: Peony for this card.  I cut out the plate onto a white adhesive sheet and the attached the cut out to the card base.  It made a great mask.  Then I used a Copic Airbrush to lightly mist over the mast.  I stamped the verse from A Cheerful Heart and then added in a few sequin.

Paper: Stampers Select White
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx
