Welcome to our Day 1 of the December 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 thrilled 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. I’ve used the sweet, new With All My Heart stamps and dies, the Ornamental Swirl Hot Foil Plate, our Love to Layer: Rounded Hearts 1 & 2 dies, the lovely Forever and Always Sentiments stamps and dies, and delightful Open Your Heart Stencils on my cards today.
I hope the elements used on my first card will win your heart, as they certainly have mine. This card uses the new With All My Heart stamps and dies, which are comprised of the sweetest heart shapes, in two sizes, built from flowers! You’ll find the loveliest swirls in this set too, that pair perfectly with our new Ornamental Swirl Hot Foil Plate that I used as my background.
After layering my two floral hearts, one over the other, I adhered them to a vellum tag cut using the September Surprise Box. I tucked in other elements from With All My Heart such as swirls, leaves, and a loopy bow. Truly everything has been thought of and included in this set!
To finish, I used the smallest heart from the Love to Layer: Heart die set and stamped a sentiment from the Forever and Always Sentiments stamp set to the center of it. I added in more swirls and one more loopy bow, because, why not? A girl could never have too many bows, right?

I’m so excited to share my next card with you, as it uses the most, endearing, new stencil set to create my background. Introducing the new Open Your Heart Stencils! They are truly enchanting. You’ll find two different stencils in this set, both centered around hearts. I’ve used just one of these cute stencils on my card, using Opaque Paste over Aqua Mist cardstock, and love the dimension it adds. Give it a try if you haven’t…you’ll be hooked!
I then framed my stenciled background in using the Border Bling: Scalloped Frame, cut using Stamper’s Select White cardstock. This particular Border Bling die, just screams to be used on a romantic Valentine card, don’t you think? Next, I used the new Love to Layer: Rounded Hearts 1 & 2 dies to create a heart-shaped window, which allows for that beautiful stenciled background to shine through! The Love to Layer: Rounded Hearts dies come in two different sets with three different sizes of hearts included in each set. One is plain and more rounded while the other is a bit less rounded and has some pierced detailing. You’ll love them both!
I added in a floral heart stamped using the With All My Heart stamp set, adding in leaves and florals, also from this set. My sentiment comes from the new, Forever and Always Sentiments stamps and dies, and adhered it in the bottom corner of my card. Such a fun, new collection of thoughtful sentiments that are perfect for Valentine’s Day, weddings, and anniversaries.
