Welcome to day 5 of the Papertrey Ink October release countdown. It's another group post today and the whole design team is sharing projects with holiday style using the new Wet Paint Holiday Tags set, Star Scribbles set, and Folded Tags dies. One of my projects that I am sharing today also features my new Snowflake Sparkle set.

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

Normally when it comes to holiday project, I tend to reach for the more traditional colors. It was very out of the box for me to play around with jewel tones and metallics for the projects I am sharing today - and I am really happy with the results!

I have been really into playing around with watercolor this month and did that again for these projects. For this card, I embossed the star scribble circle onto watercolor paper and the "be merry" sentiment in the center. Then i used the Clean Color markers to add color and a water brush to blend everything together.

I went back and stamped a few more stars with some Winter Wisteria ink. For the metallic touch, I added a glitter strip peeking out from the edge of the watercolor paper.

I did the same embossing technique for the tags and then attached the watercolored pieces to the Folded Tags die cut from Winter Wisteria cardstock.

My metallic touch here was the silver string I tied to the tops of the tags.

And finally I incorporated my new Snowflake Sparkle set with the watercolor technique. Everything is embossed in clear. I stamped the "joy" first and then added the snowflakes across the card front.

I did another glitter strip peeking out from the edge of the watercolor paper.

All of the projects I shared today were really all about play: playing with the jewel tone colors, playing with the watercolor technique, and plaint with some metallic accents.
