My first card uses Woodland Winter! This is such a fun stamp set with the cutest little critters to create the most wonderful Winter and holiday scenes!  Plus the tree has a matching die! It is a full sized set on a 5.75" x 8.5" full color sturdy storage panel with 21 images and sentiments. It is illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink Collection.

I love this little deer! I colored the image with Copic markers and added fun flock in white to the Santa hat. My papers and ribbon are from the new Holiday Wonder Project Pantry Kit that will be release on Thursday. I added one of the sentiments from the set to my card. I added red rhinestones to the wreath around his neck. 


I used the new TE Trim the Tree Die to cut my tree. I am really excited about this die. I think I am going to use it to make my Christmas cards this year!! The stars are also included in the die set.



My next card uses Snow A la Carte, is the latest image to be added to the Word A la Carte collection which is illustrated by Nancy McKinney.  For this card I used the second Project Pantry Kit being released this month, 12 Days

I colored my snowman with Copics and paper pieced my letters. I added the snowflake using the TE Winter Wonderland Snowflake Die and added a rhinestone to the center. My bottom border is made with the Scalloped Eyelet Border Die.


I used Stickles to add snow and pink rhinestones button to my snowman. The ribbon is part of the kit.


I finished off the inside of my card by added the image of the stamped in brown ink and another snowflake. For my sentiment I used a sentiment from the new Banner Holiday. Banner Holiday is a new sentiment set that coordinates with the popular It’s a Banner Day 1,2,&3 sets. It was designed and illustrated by Taylor VanBruggen for the *te* collection. 




Thanks for stopping by! I will back tomorrow with another new stamp preview.  Be sure to stop by all the designers blogs today for lots more inspiration!
