papertrey ink October release - potbellies: reindeer + twinkling trees


Welcome to day 5 of the Papertrey Ink October release countdown. Today I have some fun tags for the holidays to share with you using the new Potbellies collection and the new Twinkling Trees stamp set & dies.

You can find all of the details about these new products HERE.

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


Isn't the new Potbellies collection just way too much fun? I adore this reindeer and used the Potbellies: Reindeer dies to made some personalized Christmas tags for my girls.

The main body of the reindeer is die cut from Kraft cardstock and then I added the other die cut elements: ears and muzzle in Rustic white, hooves in Smokey Shadow, and nose in Pure Poppy which I then covered with red glitter. There's quite a few details, but the tags really went together pretty easily once I had everything cut out!


The bellies of the reindeer are made with the large clear bubbles. I added my girls names inside the bellies using the Headline Alphabet dies along with some fake snow, snowflake buttons, and a few tiny candy canes.

I really love how the tags turned out and can't wait to attach them to my girls gifts for Christmas!

I created this set of tree tags using the new Twinkling Trees stamp set and dies. I die cut the large trees from white cardstock - two for each tag. One of the tree layers is inked with Prairie Grass ink and then die cut with the star die to add the star openings. The other layer is glittered with some white gold glitter. I layered the two trees together so the glitter peeks through the star openings to make the tag base.


The smaller trees are inked with Prairie Grass and Olive Twist inks and stamped with the "fa la la" stamp from the Twinkling Trees stamp set. I layered them onto a banner die cut that I stamped with "merriest" from the Twinkling Trees set in Prairie Grass ink and then "winter wishes" from the Snowfall Style stamp set. I added them to the larger trees and then added some twine to the tops of the tags.
