introducing winter penguin, tag-its #10, & birthdays by the numbers

Welcome to day 1 of the Papertrey Ink November release countdown! I have lots of things to share with you this month starting off with my three new stamp sets: Winter Penguin, Tag-its #10, and Birthdays by the Numbers.

Winter Penguin is a sweet little wintery set. The penguin is so whimsical and cute and there are several wintery sentiments and snowflakes to go with him. Winter Penguin retails for $5.

Birthdays by the Numbers is a great basic set to celebrate birthdays for anyone in your life. There's a cupcake, candle, and numbers to customize your project perfectly. This set retails for $15.

Tag-its #10 has a birthday theme as well and coordinates with the Birthdays by the Numbers set. This set retails for $5.

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


Today the penguin came in from the cold to celebrate birthdays! The little elements in the Tag-its #10 set are perfect accessories for the penguin. On one card the penguins are holding up the little "happy" banner and on the other the penguin has a birthday balloon.


The Banner Builders pennant die was perfect for creating a birthday banner border on the bottom of each card with my sewing machine. I added a bit of glitter to the "happy" banner and the balloon with a glue pen.


I balanced the penguin on the top of the cupcake image from Birthdays by the Numbers for this card for something fun. the cupcake pieces are divided, so you can stamp the cupcake in multiple colors easily.


There are more sneak peeks to see today: Nichole and Betsy will be featuring the new sets Background Basics: Circles and Tiny Tags II. Nichole and Erin will feature the new Mega Mehndi Medallion set. Dawn, Beth, Melissa, and Maile all things to share on their blogs too.

It's just the beginnning of the countdown and so there will be lots more to share in the next few days! See you tomorrow!
