Welcome to Day 2 of the September 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 Forever Snowflake Frame dies and Merry Christmas Hot Foil Plate and die.
Where do I begin in regards to our beautiful, new Forever Snowflake Frame dies? This die set is stunning and loaded with the most gorgeous and intricate variety of snowflakes for the season. Use the snowflakes on their own to embellish your winter cards, or add them around your Forever Snowflake Frame…the possibilities are endless and are waiting for you to discover and enjoy!
Do you love to foil? I can’t quite get enough of adding shimmer and shine through foiling to my projects. I especially love our new Merry Christmas Hot Foil Plate with coordinating die. Such a fun way to add glimmer to your Christmas cards this year. I love that you can die cut the sentiment as well, adding it to the center of your Forever Snowflake Frame or any number of other possibilities!
These two sets of products look so beautiful together and allow you to create cards as simply or as detailed as you wish. I went the more intricate route by adding layers of Forever Snowflakes, die cutting them from glitter cardstock, patterned paper, and cardstock. That’s what makes this set of dies so exciting and inspiring. I used our new Ornament Cloche stamp set and dies too, tucking sprigs of greenery and poinsettias in and around my layered snowflakes. What a fun card to create!

Next up today, we have the playful and festive Ornament Cloche stamp set and dies to share with you as well as more snowflakes…the delightful Perfect Snowflake dies.
I chose a bright and cheerful color combination for my card today as this set embodies “Merry and Bright”! The tiny ornament in this set is meant to be transformed into a cloche, filled with a variety of trees, a darling Christmas car, a candy cane, and lots of fixings.
What a playful set this is to create with! You’ll love selecting your fillings, your color combination, and sentiment for each card you create. I die cut my ornament from white glitter cardstock, allowing the sparkle of the cardstock to mimic snow inside a snow globe. I added whimsical trees in reds and pinks, a bright aqua card, and poinsettias and berries that coordinate.
There are three separate sentiments included in this set, all just the right size to fit across the base of the cloche or across the bottom of the snowdrift…bitty sentiments are my favorite because they can be used in nooks and crannies! Behind my Ornament Cloche, I added die cut snowflakes from the new Perfect Snowflake die collection. I adore these chunky, soft, and rounded snowflakes. There are such a wide variety of snowflakes included that it’s hard to choose which to use.
