Welcome to Day 1 of the August countdown. Here at Papertrey Ink we love to bring you tons of variety. If you like more simple designs or something a little more challenging, we have you covered. Each of our newly released products can be used in so many different ways to fit your particular style, we are excited to show you how they come to life!
Hi, it’s Melissa, and I’m so excited to share our new products with you. We absolutely love bringing you the most amazing images made from the highest quality materials for you to add to your creative toolkit. I’m going to show you what I created with these wonderful products and then we’ll show you what the other designers made. The card below was created using the new Christmas Bouquet stamp set and dies and Elegant Edges: Christmas Bouquet dies.
I love the new Christmas Bouquet stamp set because it’s the perfect floral for the holidays. The lovely poinsettias included in this set are multi-step images, meaning you build layer upon layer, adding character and personality with each new layer you add. The results are stunning! Stamp them in any color scheme you choose, allowing them to coordinate perfectly with your Christmas cards for the season.
I used the gorgeous Elegant Edges: Christmas Bouquet dies underneath my stamped poinsettias. The beautiful edge created with this die set is truly breathtaking. Elegant Edges: Christmas Bouquet take your cards to the next level and aids in creating stunning layers. I stamped my poinsettias in untraditional colors such as Melon Berry, Sweet Blush, Pale Peony, and Autumn Rose. I love pink cards for the holidays!
For my sentiment, I chose to use the Just Sentiments: Santa Mini stamp set. It is stamped on a die cut Love to Layer: Charming Brackets circle which is layered on top of a die cut Delicate Doilies. To finish, I added a sweet die cut bow, cut using the Bows Galore die collection…a must have for the holidays.

Next up today, we have the adorable and irresistible, new Holiday Car dies and With Great Joy Sentiments stamp set. What a treat these delightful new products are. Let’s jump right into my project for today.
I began by die cutting my Holiday Car from Sweet Blush cardstock and then added some pattern by using the Watercolor Plaid stencils. These tiny cars come together so quickly and are easy to assemble. Choose from two different tire styles and enjoy customizing your car to suit your own personal style.
The Holiday Car die set comes with a Christmas tree, a string of lights, and tiny bulbs. I die cut my trees from patterned paper and tucked a couple behind my car and added one on top of the car, ready to take home for Christmas! I colored each tiny bulb using my Copic Markers and added Stickles glitter to light them up.
You’ll love the new With Great Joy Sentiments stamp set. Inside this set, you’ll find sentiments for many occasions throughout the year, all centered around the key word, “Joy”. I used this set at the top of my die cut Psalm Reflections: July. Don’t you love this sweet sentiment? I added in snowflakes from a new die set called Perfect Snowflakes. The tiny holly sprig is from the new Into the Blooms: Christmas Sprigs die set, and you’ll be hearing more about these new products on the next couple of days.
