Welcome to Day 3 of the Papertrey Ink September Countdown. Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to the cutest concept ever…the Tiers Of Cheer stamps and dies, which center around the cute tiered trays that are all the rage currently. This stamp set is loaded with all sorts of accessories to dress up your chosen tiered tray. Let’s begin with this first card of mine.
I like to liken the Tiers Of Cheer stamps and dies to a candy store. You get to pick out delightful treats in all different shapes and sizes and then add your own flavor to them through adding colors and assembling them on your tray. I went with the Santa Claus sign, ladder, star, speckled, enamel cup, candy cane, tiny farm truck, Christmas trees, beads, wooden word, and pink house for my first card. These accessories scream holiday cheer to me!
You can create two tiers or three depending on your own personal taste and preference. The three-tiered tray fits perfectly front and center on an A2 card front. The set comes with a variety of different quotes or phrases to add to you wooden frame, which comes in not only a rectangular shape, but also a circle. All you’ve got to do is come up with a color scheme and start stamping! The magic begins soon thereafter.
Isn’t the tiny ladder that connects the two tiers darling? Such a fun, special touch. You’ll find a variety of different size houses, including a church that creates such a fun festive, winter scheme, as you’ll notice in my next card. It would be so hard to pick a favorite element of this set. I feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface….but if I had to choose it might be the tiny sugar cookie and sprinkles that you’ll see in many of the projects created by the designers.

My next card uses a two-tiered tray from the Tiers Of Cheer stamp and dies sets. I went with a cool, blue, wintertime feel and theme to this card and had so much fun creating it.
I wanted the houses and church or schoolhouse to be the focus of this card. They are so charming and enchanting, all stacked and layered to form a sweet village. I went with more of a metal, galvanized look on my tray inside and of wood like on my first card. I stamped my tray in Soft Stone ink, adding a bit of shading with Fine Linen. My little reindeer stamped in Fine Linen, coordinates perfectly with my O Holy Night circular sign, also stamped in Fine Linen.
Creating these darling tiered trays with paper and stamps is just as fun as creating them in person. Getting just the right depth, dimension, height, layers, color coordination, and arrangement is so much fun! I added my “Joy” sentiment by using the stamp and die from the Merry Berry Wreath sets. Lastly, I added in glitter foam die cut snowflakes from the Layered Snowflakes: Crystal set, which you’ll be hearing all about tomorrow.
Enjoy these delightful projects created by our designers!

I’m so excited to share with you these next products. They remind me of Christmas as a child, wrapped up in the cozy, warmth of my family. Introducing the new Vase Collection 12 stamp set and dies, Cornered: Holly Berries, and Just Sentiments: Peace.
Yes, you saw it right, a darling, weathered metal milk jug filled with holiday greens. I think it’s the cutest thing on the planet and adore it. I stamped mine in Soft Stone as the base layer, Honey Nut as the second, detailed layer, and Olive Twist for my “Farm Fresh”. I love the layers of twine and twine bow wrapped around the jug. Such a perfect touch to finish it off for the holidays.
I filled my milk jug with greens found in the set, but this is one container that will look right at home filled with other florals. Think Sprigs & Sprays: Fall…wouldn’t that be beautiful, too? I layered my milk jug and florals over the new Love to Layer: Squares. These are so much fun and a nice, new option to have in your crafting stash.
I created my background from Kraft cardstock and used the new Cornered: Holly Berries in the upper left and lower right corners. I then used snowflakes from the Let it Snow stamp set, and Fresh Snow ink to scatter stamped snowflakes across my background.
Inside my card I added a sentiment from the new Just Sentiments: Peace stamp set. I love this phrase and the lovely font used. You’ll notice I once again used the Love to Layer: Squares dies and carried over greens and bow from the outside using the Vase Collection 12 stamp set and die.
