Introducing Candy Cane Christmas, Holiday Lights & Stylish Sentiments: Holiday

Welcome to Day 1 of the September Countdown!  This officially marks the start of our holiday releases for 2011 and we couldn't possibly be more excited for all of the amazing products we have to introduce to you over the next few months!  

To begin today we are focusing on a few traditional Christmas icons!

First up is candy canes!  The traditional Christmas treat!  I think just about everyone eats some form of candy canes during the holiday season each year, which makes it a true Christmas tradition.  Just for fun, I thought I would share this video I stumbled upon from the Discovery Channel showing how candy canes are made… it is really interesting if you haven't seen it before!

Capturing candy canes & peppermint sticks perfectly is Dawn McVey' s latest set, Candy Cane Christmas.  This set includes a candy cane and peppermint stick that can be used in a variety of ways to create your own holiday focal points.  One of my favorite images is the mug which can be used by itself, or easily filled with the candy cane or peppermint stick.  You will adore all of the elements this set contains once you see them in action!

To coordinate with this set, Dawn also created a new pad of patterned paper that features several different color combinations of candy cane stripes!  These bold and classic colors serve as a fabulous jumping point for so many different kinds of projects!  You won't be able to put it down!

The details.

  • The Candy Cane Prints patterned paper pad will be available for sale on September 15th.
  • It will retail for $8.

They are magic in the purest form.

Dawn McVey's second set for this month is a fabulous set of images dedicated to those beautiful, twinkling lights that almost all of us use to adorn our homes every year!  It features a string of lights with interchangeable bulbs of different styles & shapes making it easy to create multi-color strands!

The details.

  • Holiday Lights will be available for sale on September 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Holiday Lights contains a total of 14 stamps (1 light string, 4 interchangeable bulbs, 1 circular tag image and 8 sentiments).

I have another stamp set to introduce you to today.  A special new sentiment set just for the holidays!  I have been having so much fun experimenting with different font combinations lately and stacking them on top of one another. This new set offers my latest efforts to you in the form of extra special holiday greetings.  With unique sayings that will make your projects stand out from the crowd, you won't want to miss out on this amazing set!

The details.

  • Stylish Sentiments: Holiday will be available for sale on September 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • Stylish Sentiments: Holiday contains a total of 12 stamps (8 stacked sentiments, 3 single line sentiments and one star image).

Every once in a while as space allows we like to introduce a die for a previously released set.  This month we are doing just that for Holly Jolly.  Having dies for these holly images will be a dream come true and I personally can hardly wait to use the dies with felt!

The details.

  • The Holly Jolly die collection will be available for sale on September 15th.
  • It will retail for $5.
  • The Holly Jolly die collection includes shapes to coordinate with the single holly leaves, the separate holly berry cluster and both assembled holly sprigs.  Approximate measurements: 1-1/2" x 1" (A), 2" x 1" (B).

Now that we have all of the details out of the way, let's get into some fun projects!

Holiday Candy Cane Card
This is one of my favorite projects from today.  All that red & white together just seems so festive!

Building stripes
For a unique twist on a background, I alternated between the two background strips, stamping one above the other.  It used the candy cane stripes from Candy Cane Christmas and the smallest polka dots from Polka Dot Basics II.

Candy cane closeuop
For the candy cane , I die-cut the shape from white cardstock and stamped the coordinating image with Pure Poppy ink.  I added a small sprig of holly cut from Simply Chartreuse felt and embellished with red rhinestones.

This amazing sentiment comes from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday, and is stamped with True Black onto kraft cardstock that has been cut with the Spiral Notebook Page die.

Glitter Stripes Card
This Royal Velvet card is bright & festive!  It's fun to branch out once in a while and experiment with non-traditional clothing.

First, stamp the candy cane strips in Fresh Snow.  Next, a sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday is added in between the rows.  I added the glitter with Scor-tape.

Focal closeup
The tag  focal point is from Candy Cane Christmas and it is stamped onto white cardstock and punched out with a scalloped circle punch and adhered in place with foam dimensionals.

This project would look fabulous in other colors as well!

Warmth & Joy Card
This festive striped paper is what I used as the jumping point for my next project!

Mug die
The mug die that is sold as part of the Candy Cane Christmas die collection has a fun little feature that I thought I would show you.  There is an interior cut that creates a slit perfect for tucking things into the mug, especially candy canes and peppermint sticks!

Mug closeup
Here I have added a peppermint stick to the mug!  So easy to do when you have the right tools!

Holly closeup
I embellished the mug with the new Holy Jolly die.  The holly sprig was die-cut from Ripe Avocado cardstock and then stamped with Mehndi Medallion with Ripe Avocado ink.  Red rhinestones were added as well.

This sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday balances out everything perfectly, added to this Kraft strip with Ripe Avocado ink.

The upper portion of the Kraft strip is stamped with Polka Dot Basics using Vintage Cream ink.  I also swiped the ink pad around the edges of the strip for definition.

Bring Happiness Card
This next project using a very untraditional holiday color scheme, but is definitely not lacking in holiday cheer!

Sentiment closeuop
The sentiment (also from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday) is stamped onto Hibiscus Burst cardstock with VersaMark and heat embossed with White Filigree Embossing Powder.

The strands of lights from Holiday Lights are stamped in Smokey Shadow above and below the sentiment.  The bulbs are stamped with Hibiscus Burst, Aqua Mist and Sumer Sunrise.  As a finishing touch I added appropriately colored rhinestones to the center of each bulb.  So easy and so fun to create!

Singing Loud Card
In addition to the candy cane & peppermint stick images found in Candy Cane Christmas, there is also an adorable large peppermint candy.

Folded ends
To make side extensions for the image  to help it looked like wrapped candy, I die-cut this one shape from Raspberry Fizz cardstock and cut & scored it like my Lazy Stamper's Medallion (CLICK HERE to read more about this technique in case you missed it the first time around). Cut the piece in half to create even pieces for each side.

Peppermint closeup
You can see here how they fit perfectly with the peppermint candy to help it look more realistic.

This card features another one of the sentiments from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday.  Here it is stamped in Scarlet Jewel ink, with sheet music being added beside it to help reinforce the theme.

Love the color scheme on this particular project and will definitely be using it again!

Sending Joy & Cheer Card
Do you happen to remember our Christmas Tree die from last year?  It works beautifully with the new Holiday Lights set.

Tree closeup
The tree id die-cut from Simply Chartreuse cardstock.  I heat embossed the light strings only with Silver Filigree Embossing Powder and then added rhinestones of various sizes to the strings.  LOVE this look!

The sentiment (also from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday) was heat embossed as well on Hawaiian Shores cardstock placed under the tree.

I added a little star to the top of the tree and balanced out the bottom of the card with a little pinked edge.  You could definitely recreate this card in a variety of colors!

    Ann says:

    Just have to comment on that fab video – “How its Made” is a late night TV favourite in our house. We take so much stuff for granted these days and just don’t appreciate the brilliant minds that make such engineering and automation possible. I’d love to see a similar video on the production of PTI stamps! What about it Nichole?

    But I digress – so many lovely inspirational cards here! I thought I wouldn’t need any more Christmas sets (I was WRONG!) – but I’m so glad I’ve already purchased Holly Jolly and the Christmas tree die!!!!

    Brooke says:

    Owh I love this time of year – preparing for Christmas and building the excitement. For me cardmaking (of the official kind) started with a holly stamp I purchased on clearance from a local craft store about 9 years ago. Since then Christmas cardmaking has been my staple and I own more Christmas stamps than any other. My soft spot for sure! Love them all.

    GinaE. says:

    There are so many things that make me happy about these stamps and dies – but the thing that pushes me over the edge with glee is the sentiment that quotes the movie Elf! I didn’t think I could be any happier about the Candy Cane Christmas set and then…bam!…there’s Buddy the elf! I also love the fresh colors you’ve used, how you used rhinestones to accent or as the holiday lights. So many fabulous ideas!!

The cards look so festive and fun. I love the new peppermint stick/mug set, I could use that for so many applications. Dawn showcased a great clean and simple card with the light set, amazing. . . If this is day one of the countdown, the rest of the week is going to knock my socks off, I am sure!

Just when you think you have enough holiday stuff…I LOVE the Stylish Sentiments – Holiday – can’t wait to see more of this. Bells and Boughs looks really great as do the Christmas Labels and Christmas Blessings. And, it’s really neat how the Holiday Lights coordinate with last year’s Christmas Tree Die!

    I really wasn’t into Christmas yet but you always make me want to start getting ready. Last year my Christmas card was the die cut tree with a set from Hero Arts that has the string of lights. I used a Calipso pad and it really came out great. You can see it on my NEW blog.

  • 437

  • 454

    Wow!! These are amazing sets. I didn’t think I needed more Christmas stamps, but I absolutely adore the candy cane and mug set with matching dies. So sweet. The new sentiment set is perfect for making quick Christmas cards, so that’s going in my collection too!! The Holly dies are great and even though I don’t have the stamp set, the dies will be mine!! Hehe!! Can’t wait!!

  • 455
    Caren B says:

  • 457
    Marcie Rhys says:

    First off, what a color palette! This alone inspires all kinds of new Christmas ideas.
    Whoopee for the holly die. (I’ve been wanting one for a long time.) The mug die and stamp are a wonderful shape, and again you thought of everything, and included the cut at the lip for tucking in items. I can hardly wait to see the new stamp sets.
    Any year with Papertrey in the holiday season is a very good year! One more time…Love those colors.

  • 458

    We’re just coming out of a heat wave where we live, but that mug with peppermint sticks makes it feel like the chill of Christmas is in the air.

    Love the star-shaped lights with bling!

    And the Christmas tree die decked with lights! I bought that die last year but did not have time to make cards. I think you just designed my cards for this year!

  • 460
    Kathy McEntyre says:

    Every time I would look at a new project, I would think that it might be my favorite, then another great one would come up, and I would think maybe it might be my favorite! I loved all of today’s stamps and dies!!!

  • 461

    I cannot tell you how happy my Birthday is on the 28 this month. I will not have a ounce of guilt in buying everyting pictured! I LOVE it all. But that Christmas tree with the rhinestone lights has my name written all over it!

    Christmas here I come! I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything I see, Nichole! I need the die cut tree now. Amazingly, I didn’t last year, but all it takes is the right vision/card sample and it’s a need! Loved the video on making candy canes – super interesting. Also love the inspiration at the beginning of your posts now – it comes from everything around us, if we look and bounce from it! Can’t wait to see what you have for us next.

  • 484
    Tracy Y says:

    My two favorite cards for today are your Christmas Joy and Cheer card (love the tree’s embossed light strand and rhinestones and color combo of silver and Hawaiian Shores)and the Happiness and Joy card (love the star bulbs!) Thanks for the candy cane video! My 8yr old ds loved it too! It made me remember watching Mr. Rogers and how he went to different factories to learn how things were made!

  • 485
    Carol W says:

    Love the many ways the Christmas Lights were used today! That die-cut tree with lights trimming it is especially eye-popping. Great interplay between PTI products!

    And I think it’s brilliant to put the little cut line in the cup die to insert things, because you just HAVE to know that stampers would be cutting there ourselves if it weren’t included! I’m sure many of us are already thinking, “what can I add to that cup?” It would be fun to cut a couple of brown rod shapes, impress them with woodgrain pattern, and have cinnamon sticks in apple cider!

  • 486

    Wow, Wow, Wow! I am blown away already! Your cards and fun color combos using these festive new sets have me ready to start on my holiday cards! I can’t wait!
