Introducing Big and Bold Holiday Wishes and Holiday Sparkle!


Welcome, Papertrey fans!  Another countdown is upon us!  Are you ready for another month full of exciting products? 

Today I get to help introduce two new sets...Big and Bold Holiday Wishes by Nichole, and Holiday Sparkle by Alli Miles.  Both sets will be available for purchase at midnight on October 15th from Papertrey Ink

Big and Bold Holiday Wishes is a follow up to one of my all-time-favorite sentiment sets... Big and Bold Wishes.  I just love the oversized sentiments and the font used in these sets.  I am so excited to have a holiday version!

Holiday Sparkle is a super fun set in which each image has places to add gems, pearls, rhinestones, or whatever other tiny baubles your heart desires! 

So let's get on to the projects!  There are TONS of new products in this post, so stay on your toes!!

First off is a classic holiday card in which I combined one of the Big and Bold Holiday sentiments with the holly leaves from last year's Holiday Button Bits. 


And is that a new color?  A new border die?  New paper?  Hmm....


Next up is another card using Big and Bold Holiday.  I stamped the "Joy to the World" sentiment onto the largest star diecut from the Seeing Star die collection.  The Big and Bold Holiday set also has some decorative elements that can be used in so many different ways.  I stamped one of them onto each tip of the star for a fun look.  The cirlce frame around the sentiment is from Borders and Corners {Circle}.


I layered the star over the new Tag Sale #2 die, along with a Maya Road doily transparency. 


Next up is a more wintery card.  Again I used the new Victorian Lace border die.  This time I layered the actual diecut border over the "leftover" piece you get when cutting it.  Those left overs are just as pretty as the actual diecut!  I love this border!


Are you still on your toes?  Is that new paper?  Another new color???


And now how about a non-holiday card using Big and Bold Holiday Wishes?  I combined the "Warmest" sentiment with the teacup and birthday sentiment from Tea for Two Additions.  I thought they went together perfectly! 


And here on the border I used another one of the decorative elements from Big and Bold Holiday...it fits perfectly in the cut-outs, making a beautifully intricate border!


And now for some Holiday Sparkle!  I just couldn't resist going with the theme of this set's name and creating a fun and bright holiday card.  I added lots of color and glitz.


The sentiment is stamped in silver tinsel embossing powder and I added gems of all colors to the fun border stamp from the set.  The tree is from last month's release...Trees with Trimmings.


And lastly, a card combining both Holiday Sparkle and Big and Bold Wishes.  I just couldn't resist creating my own little herd from the adorable reindeer image from Holiday Sparkle...and of course the little red-nosed guy is in the lead.


The moon and star border is from Night, Night Moon and the rooftops are from Home for the Holidays.  This card is just fun and happy! 


Well, that's all I have for you tonight, but be sure to hop around to all of the other designers that are showing off their goodies tonight!  Erin is counting down another new set, Dawn will have peeks of her new goodies, as well as Heather, Becky, Alli, and of course, Nichole!
