Snowflake Medley Count Down, day 1
I can't believe September is here and Christmas is around the corner. With my new stamp set releasing this week, I dug out the Christmas movies to get the creative juices flowing. My son was thrilled to watch Home Alone today, and of course, who could ever leave out "Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas". Well, without further or do..... here are the stats on my new stamp set!!
"Snowflake Medley" will release at Papertrey Ink's online store on Sept. 15, retailing for only $15!!
>> This set features seven slightly distressed snowflakes of various sizes. And seven is quite enough in the crafting world to create a gorgeous blizzard!
>> This stamp set will also feature coordinating DIES!! (Woo Hoo!) And it actually complements my set "Winter Cheer" which released this time last year.
>> I MUST say, I had SUCH a blast putting all my projects together for this week. I couldn't stop crafting! These stamps and dies lend themselves to so many fun options! SO, get ready for a count-down PACKED with projects and ideas for the upcoming holiday season.
Now, onto a few details for this card...
The sentiment was one I printed on my computer, and I must say-- I really like the modern and casual font mixed with the distressed snowflakes. It creates a nice balance.
The patterned paper you see is actually torn out of a pack of journaling blocks from a set by "Making Memories". This pack is called "5th Avenue", and I got it at CHA a few years back. Honestly, it's one of those things I always pull out and WANT to use, but can't quite make it work... WELL, this release was perfect and you will be seeing more soon! :) Just add a little stitching, some bling, and snowflakes and voila!! I just love this card!
>> You will note that this project features: PTI Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist, and Dark Chocolate.
>> The title frame is stamped with the distressed snow flurry from my "Winter Cheer" stamp set. I LOVE using these sets together! (In fact I will be giving away a complimentary set of Winter Cheer later on in the week... so be sure to come on back!)
Well, it's about to turn into a WINTER WONDERLAND around here! SO, be sure to stop back over and check out more crafty inspiration each day this week! OH Yes!! And I will be throwing in some fun Give Aways as well! Come back and see!!
Hope your day is MERRY and BRIGHT!
