Papertrey Ink November Release Countdown Day 3

It's day 3 of the Papertrey Ink November release countdown! I have a big post today featuring 3 cards using the new Christmastime stamp/die set and one card using the new Gingerbread House Dies. My first card for today uses the cute new wooden horses from the Christmastime stamp set and a few of the gifts that are included and one of the little trees. 

The images that are included in this set are so absolutely adorable and I had so much fun working on the three cards using this set. My second card uses ALL of the images so you can get a feel for the entire set. 

To begin this card, I die cut everything I needed to make the wreath and bow using the Rustic Wood Star dies. I die cut them from white cardstock and then colored the wreath using Prairie Grass, Olive Twist, and Pinefeather ink. The bow is colored using Fine Linen and Saffron Spice ink. I glued the wreath together using liquid glue and assembled the wreath using both foam squares and liquid glue.

I die cut the two horses, the gifts, tree, and NOEL letters using the Christmastime dies and stamped them using the Christmastime stamp set. I chose a neutral color palette for a warm and cozy Christmas feel. I set the wreath and stamped images aside and got to work on the background. I stamped a Vintage Cream panel using the Weathered Wood Background Stamp using Classic Kraft ink. I die cut it using the new Love to Layer: Rectangles dies and then added some ink blending around the edges. Actually, I layered it over a slightly larger piece of Vintage Cream cardstock adhering it using ScorTape; my plates are super warped and make some of my larger die cut pieces warp as well. I layered them together so it would be flat (hopefully that makes sense).

I cut an A2 panel of Cocoa Bean cardstock and foiled it using silver foil and the Fanciful Snowflake Background Hot Foil Plate. I added the rectangle over the top and then built the scene. I also added a few accents by the NOEL sentiment using images from the Deliver By the 2th stamp set that was showcased yesterday. I added some glitter here and there to finish it off. I added it to a top folding A2 card base using liquid glue.

My second card uses ALL the images and the included sentiment. I used the stamp guide for all of the color choices on this card. I love this set; so whimsical and reminiscent of days gone by!

My first card featured the die cut letters, but you can see that I stamped them directly to the wooden sign for a hand painted look.

I hot foiled (yes, again) a Soft Stone piece of cardstock and silver foil and then die cut it using the new Love to Layer: Rectangles dies. I love that beautiful detail around the edges.

I created a tone-on-tone background by die cutting a panel using the Cover Plate: Ornate Die and glued it to an A2 size panel of Ocean Tides cardstock. I thought this would look like some beautiful mill work that you might find in a vintage home to help enhance the feel!

Because I hot foiled the background rectangle, it made it impossible to stamp the sentiment so I opted to stamp it on a square that was die cut using the Love to Layer: Squares die and added it using foam squares.

I added some glitter for some sparkle and shine. The entire panel is added to a top folding A2 card base using liquid glue.

My third card using the Christmastime stamp/die set is also on the neutral side! I chose to use just the two horses for this card and a label indicating they are a gift sent from Santa!

To begin, I die cut the pine and leaves and colored them using Distress Oxide inks. I also die cut the poinsettia and added a hint of Antique Linen ink (really hard to see in the photos).

I cut an A2 panel of plaid pattern paper and layered it onto a top folding A2 card base. The stitched frame is added over the top using liquid glue for definition. The frame was actually an afterthought; once I'd photographed the card, it looked a little "lost", so I added the frame to ground it!

The white rectangle is the middle size included in the new Love to Layer: Rectangles die set and the Kraft piece is from the new Iconic Christmas die that was showcased yesterday. I layered the greenery in the left corner using both liquid glue and foam squares, tucking things here and there until I was happy with the arrangement.

I added the poinsettia over the top of the greenery and then layered the horses and the "From Santa" image using foam squares.

I gave everything a splattering of white paint and a sprinkling of glitter to finish it off!

Move aside, neutrals, it's time for some COLOR!!! My 4th and final card for today features the new Gingerbread House dies. A few designers are also showcasing the adorable new Gingerbread Camper that I can't wait to use!

I die cut all of the pieces from white cardstock and then colored them with mini blending brushes and ink pads. I added a bow from the Bows Galore die set on the top of the roof for added whimsy!

The background was created by cutting a 4 by 5 1/ 4inch piece of Aqua Mist cardstock and die cutting it using the new Stitched Floral background. I also added the dots using Tropic Teal ink and the new dots stencils that were showcased on day 1. I added some ink around the edges as well to give it some definition. I added the SNOW sentiment that was die cut using the Larger than Life: Snow die. I added liquid applique to the house, the trees, the letters, and the snowman.
The "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" sentiment is from a stamp set being showcased tomorrow. This was such a fun card to make! Thanks for fluttering by!

Hi Kelly, Love all these cards and the Christmastime set is very compelling for me.
Can you tell me what greenery is used on the Black and White Poinsettia with Horse card?
I think I see some Into the Blooms: Dahlia greenery, but don't know the large leaves or the poinsettia.

I love the colors and whimsy of your gingerbread house and the vintage appeal of the rocking horse card. My favorite has to be the black plaid with the white poinsettia. Great color choices and design.
