december release review

love & marriage

Welcome to the final day of the Papertrey Ink December countdown release! Today is another group post day. The whole design team is sharing projects created with the Love & Marriage set. this set is perfect for cards to celebrate a wedding, anniversary, engagement, Valentine's day, and even just for everyday. I know that you will find inspiration in all of those themes between all of us on the team!

I also have one last card to share using my new Tag-its #11 set and the Love & Marriage set.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase December 15th, 10PM EST, at Papertrey Ink.


For my project, I chose to do a wedding card. Sometimes a wedding card is that perfect time to go all out with layers and embellishments. Other times it is fine to just keep things simple and add just a few touches that bring the card from ordinary to elegant.


For my main image of the card, I stamped various images from the Love & Marriage set onto Rustic White cardstock with the Chai ink from the Tea Dye Duo. Then I distressed the whole piece with the tea dye duo. I embossed the heart image in white over the top and added the sentiment in True Black. To add even more distressing, I crumpled and curled the paper until I achieved the look I was going for.

I kept my extra embellishing simple: a few ribbons, a heart brad, and a bit of shimmer spray. The result? A rustic, simple, and elegant card to celebrate the happy couple's day.


Here's a card fit for many of the occasions that I listed above. This card is on the simple side as well. I played around with stamping, punching, and die cutting several elements and then assembled them together on the card front.


A few heart brads and some more shimmer spray finished this card off.

Make sure to stop by Nichole's blog to link up to all of the design team members projects.  BethLisa, and Melissa will all be sharing projects made with their new sets for this month on their blogs too.

Tomorrow I will be back to share the remainder of the projects that I created for this December release. Nichole will share all of the set reveals on her blog at 7AM EST and then they will be available to purchase on the Papertrey Ink site at 10PM EST.
