It's time for the second group post of the November Papertrey Ink countdown! I'm pretty excited about what we're showing you today...I think we have some fun additions to the Petite Places line-up!
Today the team is featuring projects using the next addition to the Petite Places collection. This month's set is called Petite Places: Walk in the Park and it's a great little additions set to go with pretty much any of the other Petite Places buildings. It contains a few new trees, a lamppost, street lamps, walkways, roads, and even a little 3D bridge.
I've also designed a patterned paper collection for our Petite Places, filled with scenes and backgrounds for all seasons, making it super quick and easy to build scenes with any of the Petite Places buildings. They are left pretty basic so that you can dress them up in any way you'd like.
These new products, along with anything else mentioned as "new" in today's post will be available for purchase beginning at 10pm EST from the Papertrey Ink website.
For our post today, Nichole challenged us to create a card, and then do three more versions of it, one for each season. This would be so fun to do with many of our little buildings. Can you imagine the little camper or sweet shoppe dressed up for all of the seasons? I chose to work with the Petite Places: Church for my cards today.
Up first is the spring version, which uses one of the papers from the Petite Places paper collection along with a sentiment from the Easter Alleluias set to make a card perfect for spring/Easter.
I kept things very simple, just added the diecut church front, one of the cobblestone paths from the Walk in the Park set, a couple of trees, and the lamppost. The patterned paper was diecut using the Blue Skies Cover Plate and the sentiment was stamped with Stormy Sea ink.
Next is the summer version, which I thought would be a perfect summer wedding card with the church paired with the "This is the Day..." sentiment from the Phrases & Praises set.
This time I used basically the same layout, but placed the church on the other side, used the shorter cobblestone pathway from the stamp/die set and also added a few more details. I added some of the little shrubs and also some of the Terra Textures around the path.
For the Autumn version I used the same sentiment from the Phrases & Praises set, this time stamped in Terracotta Tile ink. I also added some diecut trees - these are actually some of the pre-printed trees included in the paper pad that coordinate with the tree die in the Walk in the Park set. I added a bit of shading with some Copics.
Again I added some Terra Textures along the pathway. The little bridge from the Walk in the Park set is tucked back in the trees. It can be assembled into a 3D bridge, or used on flat projects with just a couple of little snips. A couple of the little street lamps finish it off.
And lastly, of course, we have a winter version. This one uses another of the pre-printed backgrounds found in the Petite Places patterned paper collection. It uses basically the same card design as the others, just swapping out the trees and instead of the Terra Textures I added a bit of glittery snow paint to the trees and walkway.
The larger trees in the background are printed on the patterned paper, but I added the smaller tree using the Walk in the Park stamps and dies, and popped it up with a bit of foam. The sentiment is from the Stylish Sentiments: Holiday set and is stamped in Stormy Sea ink.

Of course all of the elements from the Walk in the Park set can be used in your 3D projects too. I mentioned above that the bridge stamps and dies can create a 3D version. Here's a little video I put together that will walk you through assembling the bridge.
Here's a 3D scene I put together using the Petite Places: Church along with the Walk in the Park stamps and dies. I used the die for the longest cobblestone walkway and cut it from Aqua Mist cardstock to create a river instead. I heat embossed it with a couple layers of clear embossing powder to give it a shiny, wet look -- Glossy Accents would work too, but I was too impatient to wait for that to dry. :-) The little river is the perfect thing to put under my bridge. I added a couple of the new trees, street lamps, and shrubs to the scene. All of the dies for these little pieces have tabs on the bottom that can be folded over and used to adhere to the base. One of the cobblestone walkways leads into the church. I topped it off with a clear dome filled with some of the Terra Textures. It would make such a cute gift for a wedding or baptism.

One more quick card for you today! I wanted to show you the little highway/road that's also included in the Walk in the Park set. It's sized just right to fit across the lower portion of the Scene It dies, or could be used in your 3D scenes as well. This scene was created with the building, car, and sentiment from Petite Places: Main street. I added the street lamps from Walk in the Park, and the trees are pre-printed and diecut from the patterned paper collection.
The cloud background was made with the Scene It: Basic Backer and the cloud layer from Scene It: Skyscapes. I layered the scene over patterned papers from the Winter Woods paper pad. I stamped the sentiment in Scarlet Jewel ink and cut it out by hand. The trees are some of the pre-printed trees from the Petite Places patterned paper collection that can be just quickly diecut.
