Papertrey Ink September 2018 Create Along With Us

Hello fellow Papertrey Fans!  It feels like forever since I got to participate in any Papertrey Blog Hops or Make it Mondays, etc. so I am excited to share a card with all of you today.  This month's Release is filled with lots of Christmas and Holiday goodies and among my favorites is Lizzie Jones' Bold Borders Yuletide. 

Isn't this just heavenly?  It made me think of a cover plate die I have from Papertrey Ink that I haven't used for quite a while, Cover Plate:  Winter Floral.

So Lizzie's new die that is releasing tonight was my inspiration for this card as well as being a card using the techniques taught in my recent AECP Class "With A Twist".  For my twist, I used an somewhat unexpected color combination. 

I still have several pieces of Alcohol Inked Backgrounds that have been run through my Minc Machine for the added touches of gold.  This particular piece didn't have much foiling so I "sacrificed" it to use for cutting my cover plate.  There was a fairly good sized piece of it left so I cut some smaller die cuts out of it.  The thing I really like about Lizzie's new one is the additional of the words die.  So I will have to add the new one to my collection. 

Instead of traditional red berries, I used White Pearls to embellish the card which I think makes this a very Elegant Card.   The Sentiment is from an older Papertrey Set called Holiday Photo Finishers which was discontinued. 

There are so many beautiful new products to see in this month's release and Betsy Veldman's annual Make it Market Holiday Kit releases on October 1st.  In this month's release, she has a Make It Market Mini Kit that is in tonight's release.  Be sure to go to the Papertrey Blog and check out all of the beautiful release items for this month.  Here's an image of the Make-It Market Mini Kit for tonight's release. 

Betsy's kits are always a great value and if you run out of pre-printed supplies, you still have the stamps and dies to make your own and you can also use the contents to make cards.  There is just so much goodness in this release!

In case you aren't familiar with Papertrey's Countdown, they start on the 10th of each month and each day features a few products from the new release.  On the 15th of the month, the entire month's release is revealed and available for purchase beginning at 10 p.m. Eastern.  If you'd like to shop through my Papertrey Ink Affiliate Link, that is always appreciated! 

Be sure to check out the Create Along With Us Blog Hop and you will see many lovely projects there as well.  Have a great Day and Thanks for stopping by today!  I still have several classes for my Altenew Educator Certification Program and many other projects in the works for The Card Concept Design Team and the Keeping Christmas Blog Hop that comes around on the 25th of each month minus December.  We have a new challenge beginning this Wednesday at The Card Concept so be sure to join us for some fun there as well.
