Nativity Silhouettes release

Welcome back to the Papertrey Ink countdown for the October 2011 release. I am so excited to have TWO Christmas stamp sets releasing this month.

  • Nativity Silhouettes retails for $24 on Oct. 15 on the Papertrey online store.

  • Nativity Silhouettes Additions retails for $15 on Oct. 15 as well.

These sets feature a complete array of distressed silhouette images allowing you to create the Christmas story on your cards, scrapbooking pages, and other projects. Nativity Silhouettes features the Holy Family, stable, two angels, two shepherds, sheep, stars, donkey, cow, starburst and sentiments. (Yes! All that!) The Additions set allows you the opportunity to add the wisemen, camel, palm trees, and other sentiments as well. You will love all the options offered with this set!

Check out my sneak peek from yesterday.

Today's card features PTI's Ocean Tides as a card base. I am really liking the light gray card stock instead of white which is more muted for the humble and quiet nature of the images.

I am also enjoying using pattern paper that is not necessarily designed for Christmas and jazzing it up a bit. On the flowering vines on the pattern paper I added tiny rhinestones to give a little extra twinkle. I thought it came out pretty elegant. You will notice the sentiments feature a very popular and modern font which is great to use with any type of Christmas project.

For the inside of the card, I finished the other side of the stable and added more sheep. (I love these sheep.) And the angel directs your eye to the sentiment featuring some traditional and familiar Christmas lyrics.

Don't forget to stop by and see what the other PTI girls have in store for you! Check out: Nichole Heady, Beth Silaika, Dawn McVey, Maile Belles, and Melissa Bickford. You won't be disappointed!
