Ink to Paper :: September Release :: Day One

Hey there, friends!  It's almost September 15th and that means a new round of products will be up in the Ink to Paper shop.  Introducing these products is always such a fun time during the month, and this month is no exception!  If you've been waiting for holiday and Christmas to arrive, you're in luck!

First up today, we're introducing The Joy of Noel stamps and dies and the Brushed Plaid background stamp.  The Joy of Noel has a rustic, wood block-type feel to it, as the letters all have a separate wood design to go with their solid form.  I went with a traditional Christmas color scheme, but gave it a tiny twist by adding in some pinkish-tones.

I only used the plaid stamp on the top and bottom edge of the card, so as not to overwhelm the design and lose the woodgrain 'Noel' to the plaid.  At the last minute, I added a 'negative' frame in white to give it a bright pop.  I cut out a Twigs border and instead of using that, I used the outside frame.  (Get it?!)

Stamps: The Joy of Noel, Brushed Plaid
Ink: Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, Pale Peony, Pinefeather
Paper: Mint Julep, White
Dies: The Joy of Noel, Border Bling: Twigs
Other: red twine, confetti sequins

Next up is the 4th in the series of Feathered Friends dies, and we're using some gorgeous Starflakes dies, too.  They are so detailed and intricate, and a beautiful take on traditional snowflakes.  I cut them out of Sweet Blush cardstock and arranged them around my plain white background.

I chose a bold palette for the bird--Raspberry Fizz, Saffron Spice, and Smokey Shadow.  It's not traditionally Christmas in any way, but I found that I love these colors together, and it's always fun to try out some new hues at this time of year.

The sentiment is from the new Just Sentiments: Warmth.
