Release in Review

Tonight's the night! Just a few more hours until all the new PTI is available in the store. I popping back here one last time to share the rest of my release projects.

Keep It Simple: Season's Greetings, Bookmark 1, and Embroidered Borders. Very simple card, but the dies help add a lot of detail. I used this particular Embroidered Border twice on the same project yesterday, today I'm just using it once. I backed the middle strip of open cicles with a different color cardstock than the cardbase for added interest.

Phrase Play #8, Shaker Shapes: Stars, and Embroidered Borders.  Lots of layering and overlapping to make a interesting card.

O'Tannenbaum, Wet Paint Holiday, and Stitched Bookmark.  Are those trees not lovely.  It was fun to team them up with an old favorite of mine, In the Meadow. The very popular Wet Paint Holiday dies and stamps were used on a cut of the Stitched Bookmark and the holes end up being a great design element.

Birthday Classics: October. A simple tag with layered pumpkins from Scent-a-mentals. This is a little gift of pumpkin pie candy corn. Great for October as it is a nod to the traditional Halloween candy corn, but with more of a fall spin. Yummy too!

Wet Paint Holiday, Keep It Simple: Merry Christmas, and Sparkle & Shine Holiday Additions. The scatter of sequins is certainly fun against a background created by stamping a sentiment repeatedly.

Santa's Sleigh and Shaker Shapes: Circles. Had to do it. Fun tag. The frame of the Shaker Shape is adhered to a Tag Sale #3 base. And fits quite nicely at that.

And that's a wrap. See you soon. I'll be getting all inky or stitchy soon. Can't help myself.

  1. Love your cards. My favorite is the shaker ornament using the circle die and the book mark die. Amazing release

  2. Love your projects this morning, Erin. Thanks for showing O'Tannenbaum combined with In the Meadow and the Shaker Shapes: Circle on a tag (I was wondering about that!). But my favourite today is that gorgeous pumpkin tag! Sweet perfection.

  3. Gotta have the O Tannenbaum set because the deer and tree card is beautiful. The shaker ornament is to die for.

  4. I love all your design. Great work!

  5. I really like your Christmas Greetings card!
