two feet deep and more wonderful words: joy

Welcome to day 4 of the Papertrey Ink September release countdown! Today is a group post day and we are all sharing cards and tags created with the new Two Feet Deep set. I snuck a bit of Wonderful Words: Joy into my projects today too!

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


I am so excited this set for winter and the holidays - especially the snowshoe! Our family loves to snowshoe and now how is it that I can create cards and tags that include this favorite winter activity. And the coordinating snowshoe die that lets you lace up your stamped snowshoes? I am in love for sure.


I die cut the snow shoes from a cork sheet and then stamped the snowshoe frame onto it in Dark Chocolate ink. FYI - next time I decide to stamp onto cork I will choose a permanent ink. The dye based ink did not dry very well on the cork.

The background of my card is the largest of the Fancy Flakes dies in white on a Soft Stone card base and then I stamped additional snowflakes in Fresh Snow ink.


The holes to lace up the snowshoes punched just fine through the cork and I laced them all up with 2 strands of white embroidery floss. The snowshoe bindings are attached with a glue dot to the top of the snowshoe.


For the tag, I used the Mega mat Stack 1 die cut from Soft Stone cardstock and then stamped it with snowflakes in Fresh Snow ink.


I added the snowshoes and then a sentiment with the "joy" die cut stamped with the image in Classic Kraft ink on kraft cardstock and then added the "winter" sentiment from the Two Feet Deep set. I love the look of the "joy" layered over the smallest fancy Flakes die cut.


Make sure to stop by Nichole's blog to link up to the rest of the design team to see their cards and tags created with the Two Feet Deep stamp set. The stamp designers have been busy this month so stop by their blogs too: ErinLizzieDawnLexiMelissa, and Maile.

Thank you "snow" much for stopping by today! I will be back tomorrow for another group post and more from my new Wonderful Words: Joy set.
