december stamp set sneak peeks!
more little bitty bird and fillable frames #11

introducing little bitty bird and fillable frames #11

Hi everyone! Welcome to day 1 of the Papertrey Ink December release countdown. I have 2 stamp sets to share with you (both of which have coordinating dies) for this release and I was also a contributor to this month's tag set which you will see more of in the next few days.

My first set to share is called Little Bitty Bird. This set retails for $15 and includes sweet little bird images and coordinating images in my favorite whimsical/rustic style. This set has single words to build your own sentiments as well as some complete sentiments to use on your projects. With the cold of winter upon us, this set will prove to bring you a little sunshine and keep you dreaming of spring.

My second set is the 11th in the Fillable Frames series. This month's frame has a bookplate-like shape. The frame image center is open and there are perfectly sized sentiments that fit into the opening so you can stamp your frame and sentiment at the same time. All of the frames and sentiments in the Fillable Frames are designed to work together and so your frame and sentiment combinations are endless - and you can use them on their own too. The frame has a coordinating die cut that you can purchase as well. The Fillable Frames #11 set and die will retail for $5 each.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available for purchase on December 15th at Papertrey Ink.

*please see details on this post about the delay of the sale of the Little Bitty Bird set

Now on to my projects that I am sharing today...


For this card I perched 2 of the birds on the frame image from Fillable Frames #11. I used a card layout that I shared on this post about using inspiration from your past projects and sketches. The patterned paper that you can see on the right edge of the card is from my Happy Spots collection that was released last month and I added the scallop edge using the Eyelet Lace border die and paper from the Bitty Box Basics collection.


I secured the card closed with some white buttons and Rustic Jute button twine. I love little details like this.

And one more card for today...


For this card I stamped the branch image from the Little Bitty Bird set and perched one of the birds on it He looked like the perfect image to have on a card to say "hello". The Background Basics: Woodgrain set was perfect for adding that woodsy tree feeling.


And how about that fantastic felt flower? I know that Nichole and Betsy will be sharing more about the dies and how to make the flowers (you are going to LOVE how easy it is!)

There are more sneak peeks on this first day of the countdown: Nichole and Betsy will be sharing about Melissa's new Make a Wish & Make a Wish Additions sets. Dawn also has lots of fun things to share over an her blog too!

See you back here tomorrow for more! Thanks so much for stopping by today :)
