For my projects today, I used both stamp sets and also the new stand-alone dies. I JUST LOVE THEM! They are so versatile! Here’s what they look like:
I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies. I also die-cut the tags on 110 white card stock, as well as patterned paper. I wanted to use the edge dies to create some added dimension and details to my tags. Here are the tags:
For my card, I stamped the image on Neenah solar white and decided to just color one snowman. I wanted him to stand out from the rest of the image. I also used the Frames and Flags die to die-cut a Bristol Smooth white card stock measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2. I colored my card front with my favorite Broken China Distress Oxide Ink using my blending tool. I spritzed it with water and dabbed it with my paper towel. I adhered the image to the colored background. I also heat embossed my sentiment to finish my design. Here’s what the card looks like:
