Papertrey Ink October Release - Day Four!

winter window + blooming amaryllis
+ say it simply: merry & bright

There's SO much more Papertrey Ink October inspiration on view today as we present Lizzie Jones' amazingly detailed Winter Window collection......allowing you to create your own little winter vignette. In addition, Dawn McVey has designed the newest Say It Simply: Merry & Bright die AND the most lovely Blooming Amaryllis stamps and dies - a beautiful multi-step floral and perfect sentiments, appropriate for the holiday season and beyond!

All of the new stamp sets and products will be available to purchase on October 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.

The beautiful Winter Window creates the most lovely scene.....with falling snow, icicles, petite deer, two-step tree, candles, bows and greenery you will find myriad ways to create your perfect vignette. The little floral spray from the new Fawn & Flora adds to this well lit arrangement. Oh, and a subtle hint of Aqua Mist ink blending for a bit of soft, falling snow.

Once again, I've returned to some of my favorites - Bitty Big patterning and a soft Aqua Mist/Ocean Tides/Simply Chartreuse color combination. The sentiment and tiny pinecones in Cocoa Bean add the perfect bit of contrast.

My second project includes Dawn's beautiful Blooming Amaryllis. Oh.... once you start with these amazing blooms you will not want to stop, and will feel the need to try them is every color combination. Here is a more traditional Pink Peony/Berry Sorbet/Pure Poppy amaryllis in combination with my favorite Simply Chartreuse.

I just may have gone a little pattern crazy, once again, but I'm loving the red/green color contrast with the perfect pops of white. Since I was happily stamping away, and creating multiple florals,  I thought that I'd make a coordinating tag too! 

On this card I've used just a portion of the beautifully detailed Say It Simply: Merry and Bright sentiment die, which is given a little pop in Berry Sorbet (and a few tiny slivers of dimensional tape!).

Thanks so much for stopping by and helping to celebrate the October countdown! Be sure to hop on over to the Papertrey Ink Blog to check in on Amy, Betsy, Dawn, Heather, Laurie, Lizzie, Melissa PMelissa B and Steph to see their fabulous holiday creations using some of the latest and greatest new October Papertrey products. You will surely be inspired!!
Have a wonderful day and I'll see you tomorrow!

Both cards are lovely, but I especially love the fresh and clean colors you chose for the Winter Window. You ARE the patterned paper queen, but also the queen of finding fresh, new color combinations!
