Introducing the Snowflake Medallion die collection...

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the September Papertrey countdown!  Of course September is always filled with lots of holiday products and this year is no exception.  Today I get to introduce a new die collection I have coming out called Snowflake Medallion.  It's great for package toppers, tags, ornaments, and even cards.  

The new Snowflake Medallion dies will be available for purchase from Papertrey Ink beginning at 10pm Eastern on September 15th.  I also snuck in a few other new products in today's projects...anything mentioned as "new" in today's post will also be available at that time.  

First off, I have a quick video I put together which shows how to put the snowflake medallions together.


Now let me show you a few projects using the new Snowflake Medallion dies.  First up is a classy black and white and gold ensemble.  I used the Snowflake Medallion along with the new Christmas Cheer stamps and dies to create a card and a set of tags.


I love tags because you can go all out with the layers!  I started with the round Tag Sale #4 die, which is the perfect size for the finished snowflake medallions.  I cut a couple of them from linen cardstock, and one from the small dot paper in the Black & White All Over paper pad.  I adhered a snowflake medallion to the center of each, which were also created from linen cardstock.  Over that I layered some diecut snowflakes and circles, which were cut using the other dies included in the Snowflake Medallion die collection.  These were cut from a mix of black and white papers from the Black & White All Over pad and the Mood Mix papers from SAF.  I also mixed in some Luxe Gold metallic cardstock.  Those pretty diecut words??  Oh my...they are from the new Christmas Cheer dies coming your way this month.


I also created a card using Snowflake Medallion and Christmas Cheer.  When left unfolded, the Snowflake Medallion die makes a great border.  I layered lots of white-on-white, with a bit of black and gold stamping.  

The "let it snow..." sentiment from Christmas Cheer was stamped several times with True Black ink.  I added some diecut snowflakes (from the Snowflake Medallion set), which I stamped with the sketched circle image from Polka Dot Basics III and gold ink.  The scattering of gold stamped stars is also from the new Christmas Cheer set.

Next I have a set of cute little ornaments, or they could also be used for package toppers (and then the recipient can use them as ornaments).  I combined the Snowflake Medallions with stacked buttons, topped off with a little white jingle bell.  


The center of each snowflake medallion is covered with the snowflake die included in the set, which was stamped with the circle snowflake from the previously released Winter Penguin set, which is a perfect fit.  


To assemble the ornaments, I started by assembling the snowflake medallion, then I took a length of red baker's twine and threaded it through one hole on each of the buttons.  Then I looped the twine through the top of the jingle bell, and back up through the other hole in each button.  The twine was then threaded through the cut-outs in the snowflake medallion (front to back).  When you get to the top of the snowflake medallion, thread one strand back through the cut-out at the top to the front side, leaving one strand in the back and knot them together. Pretty quick and of those projects that you could do your diecutting/stamping and then take them to the recliner with you and assemble while you watch your favorite show.  :-)

Next I have a set of simple tags.  The Enclosed: Basic Folded Tag is also a great size to use as a base for the Snowflake Medallions.  Here I just cut the Folded Tag from some festive cardstock colors and topped them off with the snowflake medallions, make from linen cardstock.  


On top of each snowflake is a diecut "joy" which was cut using the Wet Paint Holiday dies.
