Hello and welcome to Day #1 of the October Papertrey Ink countdown! From now until October 15th, the Papertrey team will be showing projects using all of the new products for October, which will be available for puchase in the Papertrey store on October 15th.
Today I get to help introduce the next installment of the Wonderful Words series. This month we get "SNOW"! Wonderful Words: Snow is a great little $5 set with a large "Snow" word stamp along with some smaller companion words. There is also a coordinating die. I always love the Wonderful Words sets, so I was excited to get to feature it this month. Let me show you some projects...I'm sneaking in some other new products too, so pay attention. ;-)
First off is a card that combines the new Wonderful Words: Snow set with a few previously released goodies. The Rainbow Stripes die always reminds me a little of a ski slope, so I thought it would be perfect to mix with the new Snow word as well as the skiis from Two Feet Deep. I stuck with a wintery color scheme and create a graphic effect by stamping the word Snow multiple times and then adding the Rainbow Stripes diecuts.
I diecut the skiis from Two Feet Deep and stamped them with Soft Stone ink. The "ready, set" sentiment is one of the smaller senitments in the new Wonderful Words: Snow set.

My next card uses Wonderful Words: Snow along with the adorable penguin from Tremendous Treats: Chrismtas. Notice how neatly he's cut out...yup...you guessed it. We get Tremendous Treats: Christmas dies this month! yay! I love those sets...they're just too cute.
For the sentiment this time I cut apart the word snow to remove the "o" and replaced it with that cutie penguin. Super easy to do, just a couple of snips. You could replace it with all sorts of things...a snowflake, a snowman, or probably tons of other things if you start snooping through your stamp sets. The snowflakes I used here are from Snowflake Medley. Notice the dotted line under the sentiment? That's a new die set that I'm super excited about...it's called Stitching Lines and it's so cool. It's going to be getting a lot of use around here!

So, the Stitching Lines dies I mentioned above....I put them to use here again. This time I diecut several of them to form sort of a grid design which I could then fill in with different sentiments and icons. This sort of idea would be fun for almost any holiday or occasion.
I filled my grid with the Wonderful Words: Snow set, some mittens from Shape Up Snowman, and a snowflake from the Fancy Flakes die collection. Along the bottom edge is another die that you'll be hearing more about this week.

Last but not least I have a cute wintery tag made using Wonderful Words: Snow and the sled from the In the Meadow dies. And you probably guessed already...yep...that's a new Tag Sale die! It's Tag Sale #8 and it's a fun shape.
I diecut the sledder from gold foil cardstock. I also diecut the center portion of the tag using the "snow" die and popped that up to create some dimension. It was super quick to put together.
