2011 holiday tags, wonderful words: holiday, and more of my new sets too

in the meadow... & more tag-its #9

Welcome to day 4 of the Papertrey Ink countdown. Today is a group post day and the whole design team is sharing projects made with the new In the Meadow set. I also have another card to share with my new Tag-its #9 set to share today...

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


I had a peek of the snowdrift die on the first day of the countdown and here it is again. I used Rustic Cream cardstock, stamped the snowflakes in Chai ink, and then distressed the whole piece with the Tea Dye Duo inks. The bird, snowman, and bunny are stamped on the kraft card base. I figured out about where the dip in the snowdrift would fall, stamped the images and then attached the snowdrift right below them.


I think one of my very favorite parts of this set is the sentiments. Wait until you see them all!

Go to Nichole's blog to link up to the whole design team to see their projects made with the In the Meadow set.

Now onto the card with Tag-its #9...


For this card I used the circle frame from the Tag-its #9 set and stamped one of the included ornament images so that it looks like it is hanging right from the frame. I stamped the sentiment next to the ornament and then distressed the piece with the Tea Dye Duo inks.


The circle frame is attached to a 1 3/4" Limitless Layers die and then attached to a Damask Snowflake. A little bit rustic, a little bit retro, and a little bit vintage all wrapped up in one.

Again, make sure that you stop by Nichole's blog to link up to the whole design team to see their projects. DawnTiffany, and Melissa will be sharing projects with their new sets on their blogs as well!

See you tomorrow for the final day of the countdown!
