First Look: Merry Greetings, Cozy Christmas

Happy Friday! Tomorrow is our Anniversary Party at The Crop Shop in Hoboken, NJ from 1-3PM EST. We'll be there to showcase all our new products. If you're in the area, please come by, we would love to meet you! You can RSVP here.

I've got another epic post for you today featuring Cozy Christmas and  Merry Greetings.

Cozy Christmas is fun of great classical images like Mr. Claus, Mrs. Claus and a very unique tree! You will love all the bits and pieces included to dress up your holiday scenes! Cozy Christmas consists of 16 Stamps: 14 images and 2 sentiments. Approximate measurements: Tree: 3" x 2-1/4"; Santa: 2" x 1-1/4"; Gift: 1/4" x 1/4"; A Holiday Treat For You: 3" x 1/8"

Merry Greetings is a greeting set featuring a combination of my handwriting and a clean, classic font. Merry Greeting contains 13 stamps: 8 Sentiments and 5 images. Approximate measurements: Mistletoe: 2-3/4" x 3/4" Merry:  1x3/4" x 1-1/4  Christmas: 3" x 1"

I've decided to feature both sets together today because they go great together! The first card features the main tree. I chose to use the angel tree topper (one of 3 different tree toppings!) and added Stickles to make it shine. I colored the tree in with Copic markers, cut it out and set aside. I created the gradient backdrop with distress inks. Using our new white gel pens, I went to town drawing in snow. Snow, snow, so much snow!



I couldn't put my white pen down so I decided to create another snowy scene using  the same tree. This time, it's set at night. I stamped the trees with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I swiped some white ink on the top edge of the card. Then instead of drawing the snow in, I dotted it so it's smaller. It has a different feel from the first card this way. The sentiment is from Merry Greetings. 



 My next card I went a little nuts... by my standards at least! I stamped, colored and paper pieced every single thing you see here. Except the stars on the top and the sentiment. But yeah, all of everything else. Don't ask me how long it took and how many grey hairs I've grown since. Mrs. Claus sure has her hands full with gifts and a tree that's about to topple over, lol. 



Closer look.. isn't Mrs. Claus a cutie? 



Next up, I have a card using the new scallop frame from our Femme Frames Creative Cuts set. I love the smaller scallops, it gives it a more elegant feel as supposed to cutesy. The birch trees, bird, nest, and ornament are all  from Winter Wonderland. The dotted string is from party Kit. The sentiment is from Merry Greetings. So nice and peaceful huh? And it was super fast and easy to make! 


Last but not least, I have another card featuring Merry Greetings and our Dainty Bow die. I am so smitten with the die, can you tell? I didn't even mind all that much assembling all 9 of them! L-O-V-E. 


That's all folks! My work here isn't done... we'll be busy prepping for the party tomorrow. If you can't make it, don't worry, we'll try to post lots of pics and a big round up on Monday. And then the real fun begins on Tuesday with the release and 2 day Stampede with some amazing designers and lots of prizes!!! Are you ready to celebrate our birthday?!
