First Look: Winter Wonderland, Remember December

Yesterday was a bit slow I know, but today I have a bunch of stuff to show you! Let's dive right in!

Winter Wonderland is absolutely stunning! There's something about silhouette images that I just cannot get enough of. I've also had a long time love affair with birch trees. We've included two different slender ones for you to build your beautiful birch tree forest. And the deers - we've got a mama/papa deer and the cutest little baby one. To make it festive, we've included a gorgeous antler for you to stamp on top of either deer. There are plenty of little stamps for you to decorate to your heart's content! This set is a fave among our designers, see for yourself!

Winter Wonderland contains 21 stamps: 17 images and 4 sentiments. Approximate measurements: Birch Tree: 5-3/4" x 1/8"  Sparkle and Shine: 2-1/2" x 3/5"  Big Deer: 1-1/2" x 1-1/2"  Moon: 3/5" x 3/5"

For my first card, I broke out my distress inks. I wanted to recreate a sunset -- the really pretty ones, you know when the sky seems to be a soft cascade of pink and orange. That is my favorite sunset. And let's set that in the snowy banks of a winter wonderland... this is how I imagined it...


Next card I utilized the smaller stitched frame from our new Creative Cuts line -- Femme Frames. Isn't it perfect as a mat? So simple and understated yet with just the right amount of stitching detail. I took the dotted line from Party Kit to create my line. I stamped the star and tiny orament from Winter Wonderland using our fantastic new ink from our Creative Color line in Sunshine. It's such a bright yellow that it really pops and catches the eye!


The deers were stamped in our softest colors -- Blush and Winter. I'll provide more details about each ink color soon but let me just say again... I LOVE THEM!!! All the colors were handpicked by me so be sure that they are just lovely in every way! :D

Here's another CAS card. This time I stamped both deers in black and gave the mama deer the antlers. I decorated her antler with the tiny ornament. I also broke out my scoring board and scored a border.


Pretty and simple huh? Might be a good idea for mass creating for the holidays for those pressed for time!

Next up! With documenting December so popular nowadays, we created a set that would be helpful in doing just that. Remember December is full of basic essentials that really is a staple if you do any kind of PL albums or scrapbooking. Remember December contains 29 stamps: Numbers 0-9, 15 words/sentiments and 4 images. Approximate measurements: Borders: 3-1/4" x 1/8" Circles: 3/5" x 3/5" Lines: 3-1/4" x 3/4"

I dug into my 2011 December pictures that I still haven't filed away. I had a cool advent pocket calendar system that year and it's still hanging on my door. Yup, almost 2 years untouched. Until now, lol! I created 4 simple 3x4 journaling cards to fit into my Snap album. The stamps work flawlessy with the 3x4 dimensions. 

Try not to read my silly journaling, I just wrote whatever matched the pictures from that day since I don't have photographic memory. :) 


Creative Colors used are Apple (not as bright as pictured), Hazel, and Mojito.

Here are the cards inserted into the album.




Today's last projects are featuring our Embellished Tag die set from our new Creative Cuts line. They are a joy to work with and really adds so much more to your crafting arsenal! The main tag measures 3.25" x 1 13/16". There is a stitched inner frame and it comes with 4 pattern building mini dies! They are my favorite part! You can choose to use the negatives or the positive die cuts to create some awesome patterns. 

Here's the first tag I couldn't wait to try. Can I just call this eye candy? Isn't it really? I die cut the main tag and then die cut the mini triangles directly on top of the tag. I did this 5 times to create this seamless pattern. Then I die cut the triangles 5 times on colored cardstock and used the positives on top of the negative space. It has a flushed look this way, so neat and tidy!

The tag was originally all white, but a certain 3 year old found it and cut into the top part. So, I had to cut that off and mount it on top of a pink tag. I'm all about making the most of accidents!


Here's a closer look. Eye candy, I'm telling you. 


My next tag is super simple. I stamped the deer from Winter Wonderland. The journaling lines and Dec 25 are from Remember December. Simple and quick. Colored the deer in with clear glitter pen to give it a bit of a kick.


Finally, my last tag uses the tag stamp from No Peeking which we released last year. The tag was stamped with our new Apple ink. I also used the To: From: from this same set to cut out the negatives and then mounted on top of a red die cut tag.  We made the tags coordinate to add more mileage to our designs. :) The polar bear is also from No Peeking. I outlined him with a light blue Copic marker to give him some dimension. 


What do you think? Embellished Tag has way too many possibilities, agree? I love. And this concludes my longest post ever. See you tomorrow!

  13. Boy, you certainly were busy...all the projects are terrific but, gotta say, I'm a sucker for deer. Put them anywhare on a project and I'm immediately drawn to whatever it is. Those stitched tags drew me, too. You're right about the eye candy and those cute "To/From" diecuts.
