Introducing Enclosed: Bell...

Today officially kicks off the September Papertrey Ink countdown...which is always filled to the brim with holiday products and inspiration!  We have so much to show you in the next five days...it's going to be a whirlwind for sure!

Today I get to help introduce the next set in Dawn's monthly Enclosed series.  This month features a gorgeous bell die and coordinating $5 stamp set.  These new stamps and dies will be available for purchase beginning at 10pm Eastern on September 15th from PapertreyInk.com.

Let me show you the projects I created with the new Enclosed Bell set.

First up is a holiday card.  I diecut the solid bell and the word/outline from linen cardstock.  I inked the solid layer with shades of red (Raspberry Fizz, Pure Poppy, and Scarlet Jewel).  I stamped the rest of the sentiment using Smokey Shadow ink and a couple of the little sentiments from the Enclosed: Bell set.  I added a couple of the holly clusters from the set as well.

I layered my finished bell over a panel of patterned paper, which is from the new Treetops Glisten pad by Maile.  I added some diecut borders along the top and bottom, which are part of a new die collection you'll be hearing more about a little later in the countdown.  I tied a little gold baker's twine around the card and through the hole in the top of the bell to finish it off.

For my next project, I created a set of tags using Enclosed: Bell.  These were so quick and easy to put together!  For each tag, I diecut the solid and word/frame bell from cardstock.  I also cut the solid bell from patterned papers from the Sparkle & Shine patterned paper pad.

I glued the frame bell to the solid patterned paper bell, then attached it to the cardstock bell by putting a brad through the hole in the top of the bell, securing a holly cluster along with it.

On the solid cardstock bell I stamped a "to/from" sentiment.  You can swivel the top layer to reveal the bottom layer, since they're just attached with the brad at the top.

My next project is another card, but this time I didn't use the dies, just the stamps from the Enclosed: Bell set.  I stamped the holly leaves into a wreath, then stamped that big, beautiful "joy" sentiment in Pinefeather ink.

Bell-Wreath

I stamped the berries in Pure Poppy, and added the bow from the Lovely Laurels set.  I sponged some Spring Moss ink around the edges.

My last project today takes the Enclosed: Bell set in a different direction...instead of Christmas, I created a wedding card.  Dawn was thoughtful enough to include a wedding sentiment in the set, so just by changing up the colors and details you can use this set all year round.  I started off by impressing the Garden Gild cover plate instead of cutting it to create my background.  Then I diecut the "joy" bell from vellum and layered it over a solid bell cut from linen cardstock.

Wedding-Bell

I clustered a bunch of Garden Gild flower and leaf diecuts at the top of the bell.  I added a little silver string tied through the top. Along the side is a strip of Sweet Blush cardstock which was stamped with some stripes using Fresh Snow ink and the Plaid Builder stamp set.
