The Papertrey Ink Sr. Design Team is revisiting two sets this month, Boards & Beams and Home for the Holidays. I've made a couple of projects for you showing how these sets can be used for different occasions.
This first project uses the two sets combined to create a large tag to dress up a package. I love how you can use the sets to create little scenes with a cozy, homespun feel. The base for the tag was created using the Layerz Mat Stack 4 die and Rustic Cream cardstock.
I used Autumn Rose and Raspberry Fizz ink for the house and Simply Chartreuse ink for the Christmas tree and wreaths hanging in the windows. I also used the Home for the Holidays coordinating dies to make a few of the elements stand out a bit. The snowbanks across the bottom of the tag use Holiday Cheer Patterned Paper and In the Meadow dies.
My sentiment comes from the Wonderful Words: Holiday stamp set and was stamped in Spring Moss ink and on a strip of Rustic Cream cardstock cut using the Double Ended Banners die. The first part of the sentiment uses Autumn Rose cardstock and the Wonderful Words: Holiday die collection. It was matted on a Damask Snowflake die cut from Sweet Blush cardstock. The package was then wrapped up and the tag attached using Autumn Rose Swiss Dot Satin, Sweet Blush button, and Rustic Cream Button Twine.
This next little bundle is a fun idea for a Valentine or "Just Because" gift for a neighbor or friend. It begins with a base cut using the Card Base-ics #2 die and Rustic Cream cardstock. The houses from the Boards & Beams stamp set were stamped in Pure Poppy along with hearts from the Simple Valentine stamp set.
The hearts were embellished by adding an image from the Winterberry stamp set across the center of them and then a Vintage Cream button. I used my most favorite sentiment from the Boards & Beams stamp set here and made it my focal point by stamping it in Smokey Shadow ink on Rustic Cream cardstock cut from the Limitless Layers 2 1/4" die collection with Pure Poppy Bitty Dot paper used as a mat behind the sentiment.
I filled a small glassine bag with candy, tied it with Pure Poppy Baker's Twine, and then slipped it into the slots. I used a strip of Sweet Blush grosgrain to secure it even further and created a sweet bundle.
That's it for me, but there are many other ideas waiting for you on the following blogs:
