Come All Ye Faithful...
Papertrey Ink October 2013 Release...

City Scene...

It's time for group post #2 for the Papertrey Ink October countdown!  Today the team is featuring a collection of products entitled City Scene.  This collection includes the main City Scene stamp set, a City Scene Sentiments set and a City Scene Christmas Sentiments set.  There are also coordinating dies.  These new stamps and dies were created by Nichole and she's thought of nearly every little detail!  I had so much fun playing with these sets.  I have two card to share with you today.  One is very simple, and one involves tons of fun details.  Everything I show in today's post as "new" will be available for purchase from the Papertrey Ink website as of 10pm EST on October 15th, 2013.  

Let's start with the detailed project.  I use the new City Scene set along with the coordinating Christmas Sentiments set to creat a detailed shaker card.  The shaker portion was created using the new Tag Sale #8 die.  Inside the shaker is a cute townhouse from the City Scene set as well as a cute little car (it's actually a London Taxi, but I masked off the words on the side to make it a more generic car).  And the killer?  That little tree that Nichole designed to go on top of the car!  It's just too cute!  (The string of lights inside is actually from the new Come All Ye Faithful Additions set.)


The strip with the trees layered over the shaker is one of the coordinating dies.  This particular sentiment fit perfectly on the strip.  I layered the whole thing over the new Cover Plate: Center Stage die.

My first card is very detailed and second card is the exact opposite...very simple.  This would be a great quick and easy card to give to a special guy in your life.  I stamped several of the buildings from City Scene using gray inks.  Then I added a simple strip of Smokey Shadow cardstock along the bottom.


The sentiment is stamped over the buildings using True Black and Pure Poppy inks.  And how cute is that little taxi?  I diecut it and stamped it in bright yellow ink (Yo Yo Yellow by Stampin' Up! - which I believe is a retired color) and popped it up with some foam adhesive.
