introducing ombre sentiments: christmas + more christmas faith


Welcome to day 2 of the Papertrey Ink September release countdown. Today I am sharing the new Ombre Sentiments: Christmas set and I used my new Christmas Faith set in the projects that I am sharing to day as well!

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.


The Ombre Sentiments: Birthday set is just so much fun and now we are excited about this Christmas version! The sentiments them selves have a great ombre effect with the font starting with a lighter weight and evolving into a heavier one. You can stamp them in one color, or create a multicolor ombre effect like I did here. I stamped the "Wishing you a very merry..." sentiment using the colors Pure Poppy, Scarlet Jewel, and Olive Twist. I inked the top of the stamp with the Pure Poppy first and then sponged on the additional colors before I stamped it onto the cardstock.


I added some fun elements from my new Christmas Faith set scattered across the card front. You can get a look look at the new color, Olive Twist - stamped with the large pine sprigs, and see how it compares to Ripe Avocado and Spring Moss on this card.

I added a pretty striped glitter strip downtime side of the card. I created that using some Scor-tape that I attached to cardstock in a diagonal line patterned and then added some glitter to it. I have done this in the past with red glitter, but I am really loving the elegant look with the white gold glitter that I used.


I had a little fun with the emboss resist technique for this sweet little card. I stamped the sentiment from Ombre Sentiments: Christmas and the dove from Christmas Faith and embossed them with clear embossing powder on watercolor paper. I used refills of Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse, and Ripe Avocado inks to add color around the embossed sentiment and image.


After the ink around the embossing was dry, I added stars in the same color inks scattered around everything. The side of the watercolor paper is die cut with the Small Scallop border die and I tied a piece of Rustic Jute button twine around the card front.


For this last card, I kept thing clean and simple. I used one of the sentiments that is in one line instead of being stacked and inked half of it in Pure Poppy and half in Simply Chartreuse inks. The holy is stamped in the same colors and is from the Christmas Faith set.


I stamped some coordinating paper with the holy and berry images with Fresh Snow ink onto some kraft cardstock. I attached a strip to the top and bottom of the card front and then added some stitching with some metallic thread in my sewing machine for a little sparkle.
