introducing petite places: barnyard and more xoxo

Welcome to day 4 of the Papertrey Ink December release countdown. Today is another group post day and we are all sharing projects created with the new Petite Places: Barnyard set. I also have another project to share today created with my new XOXO set.

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


I created a flat card with the Petite Places: Barnyard set in a sort of chalkboard look. The chalkboard look is just perfect for a country themed card like this one. I took 4 square that I had punched out of True Black cardstock and embossed elements from the set onto each one with white embossing powder.

For the background on the card, I revisited the Background Basics: Farm and Barn set. I used the chicken wire on the Scarlet Jewel card base and added a wooden border with the woodgrain stamp on the Classic Kraft cardstock.


The coordinating sentiment set that goes along with the Background Basics: Farm & Barn set is so much fun. I used the "hay there" sentiment stamped with True Black ink on kraft cardstock and punched it out with a circle punch to add to the card front.

Finally, today, I have a card to share that is created with my new XOXO set...


I had fun stamping all of the hearts cascading down the card front in Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, and Lovely Lady. I did some generational stamping as well to achieve many different tones of color.


For the sentiment I glittered the "be mine" sentiment and added the stamped "valentine" underneath it.

You can see more new products from the Papertey Ink December release and projects created with them over at Nichole's blog. You will be able to link up to other design team members sharing projects today and also to the stamp designers who have new products to share this month.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I will be back soon with more to share!
