introducing splits: love + to have & to hold


Welcome to day 1 of the Papertrey Ink December release countdown. Today I am sharing the new Splits: Love set with you as well a bit of a peek of my new To Have & To Hold 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.

First here's a small look at my new To Have & To Hold set...


This set features a heart shaped wreath that you can customize with the different elements in the set and script words that you can combine into the perfect sentiment for your card. This set is perfect for weddings, anniversaries, Valentine's day, and just sending love to a special someone. There are coordinating dies available. To Have & To Hold retails for $15.

There are a few peeks of this set in a couple of my projects today and I will be sharing more with you during the rest of the countdown.

On to my projects for today...


This card is made with the new Splits: Love set. This month's set features whimsical roses and the "with love" sentiment along with a few more detail images. Splits: Love has a coordinating die available and then stamp set retails for $5.

I embossed the main image from the set onto some watercolor paper and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I added color with my Clean Color markers and a water brush for a pretty watercolor effect.


The sentiment is stamped into the center of the main image in black and then I used the Noted: Scalloped A1 dies to put the card together. I die cut the main image with the oval die and then added to the A1 card base cut from kraft cardstock. I tied some Rustic Cream button twine around the side of the card front to finish the card off.


For this next card, I die cut the main image that I stamped in black on white cardstock with the coordinating die. To add color, I used some Pure Poppy patterned paper to paper piece the roses on the main image.


The sentiment on the card is from my new To Have & To Hold set and it fit perfectly into opening on the main image from the Splits: Love set. I added the stamped piece onto a Stitched Primitive Hearts die cut from kraft cardstock and the card base is made with the Noted: Scalloped Square die in white cardstock.


Finally, I combined the Splits: Love set and my new To Have & To Hold set for this last card. I stamped the main heart wreath image from the To Have & To Hold set in Prairie Grass ink and then die cut the wreath with just the outside die (more information on this later!) I stamped the "with love" sentiment into the center of the wreath and then added some of the roses from the Splits: Love set onto the wreath.


The roses are embossed with clear embossing powder and then watercolored with a pretty new soft purple color that you will hear more about during the countdown. I cut them out to add them to the wreath and then tucked a few more leaves around the roses that are from the To Have & To Hold set stamped in Spring Moss.
