papertrey ink - celebrating the past, present, and future: 2015


We are celebrating 10 years at Papertrey Ink and today we are looking back to the year of 2015. I went back to all of the sets to revisit from that year and chose the Twig Wreath stamp set to create a new project to share with you today.



The Twig Wreath set was a surprise to me at what the possibilities are with it - even though I was the one that designed it! It's amazing to discover a stamp sets true potential.


I picked out some a color scheme for this project that is definitely more rustic and autumn like. I stamped the wreath first in Classic Kraft ink and then added the details onto the wreath both by directly stamping onto it and adding some flower die cuts.

The sentiment is stamped in Cocoa Bean ink onto a banner die cut and attached to the card front.


I added to rustic feel of the card by stamping the woodgrain element from the Background Basics: Farm & Barn set onto Cocoa Bean cardstock with Cocoa Bean ink to add to the top and bottom of the card. A piece of rustic jute button twine tied in a bow around the card front was the perfect finishing detail.


Thinking of You Wreath Card

stamps: Twig Wreath, Background Basics: Farm & Barn

ink: Fresh Snow, Classic Kraft, Cocoa Bean, Saffron Spice, Americana, Olive Twist

cardstock: white, kraft, Honey Nut

I thought it would be fun to take a look at a few of the projects that I created in the past with the Twig Wreath set.


I think the card of the left is my favorite from when the Twig Wreath set was originally released. The card on the right uses just some of the single elements from the Twig Wreath set without the wreath image.


I did use the wreath element on this card either, but still achieved a gorgeous wreath design.


I love how you can just stamp and layer inks with out die cuts and end up with absolutely gorgeous designs.


Or you can go completely the die cut route and add some subtle and beautiful dimension to your project.


And I have loved seeing how people have used elements from other stamp sets along with the Twig Wreath set to build wreath designs. I used the Christmas Faith set here to stamp a wreath perfect for the holiday season.

Now that I have showcased how this product from the past has remained a classic, it's your turn to share your ideas for the future!
