I am honored to be guesting with Trinity Stamps for the Winter Release! It's an awesome release and so excited I got to play with these great products! You should have come here from the uber talented Courtney Kreeber's place! Hop and comment all along the way for your chance to win a $25 gift code to the Trinity Shop! You have until Friday, November 7th at 11:59pm to comment and the winner will be announced on the Trinity Blog on the 8th!
Here's how I was inspired:
Included in the release are some fantastic Slimline dies... I've used one of them on a couple of my projects today, including this one along with the adorable images from the Gingerbread House Stamps and Dies and the Merry Christmas Dies. You can find all of these new products here!
O M Garsh!! Adorable images in the Gingerbread House set... it was so fun to put this card together! I absolutely love those lights... I think they may be my favorite. This sweet bird has baked some cookies and is expecting some company!
And here is her friend! They're going to celebrate the holidays together and she brought a gift and of course she showed up with a couple lattes! (Those are from the Frappy Camper stamp set...lol! You knew I'd have some coffee here didn't you?)
Love, love the Merry Christmas Senti-Mini Dies! It's a three die set, with the words, the outline and a little banner that I didn't use here, but is fantastic for the little sentiments in the Merry Christmas Senti-Mini stamp set!
And the Slimline Series: Stitched Dies... can't say enough! The 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" size is so fun to have a little extra room. I created a shaker from mine using a beautiful glitter mix from Trinity.
I'm linking this one up to Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes Wednesday Challenge! You should check it out!
I loved playing with the Slimline dies so much I used them again for this one! I used it along with the Snowman Border Builder. SUCH a fun set!!
I used the hill die in the set with white glitter paper to create my snowy ground. Then I just cut all my pieces out of a few different colors and some from glitter paper and started mixing and matching pieces. My fine tweezers made this so much more fun and easy!
So cute, right?! The dies to cut those tiny snowflakes were also in the set and the larger snowflakes are embellishments available in the Trinity shop in the I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas mix.
And I used the Merry dies as my sentiment for this one... sweet and simple!
I cut lots of extras from the Snowman Border Builder because I knew I'd want to use them again and again. I'll store them in little clear envelopes... but I didn't put them away quite yet... 'cause I needed some for this:
Have you seen the new Layered Pine stencils??? I used them for the background here and I LOVE them! I varied my colors a bit and added a few of just the bottom layer in the background... of my background...lol!
And wasn't it just the perfect backdrop for my Frappy Camper? I decided to dress it up for Christmas this time around. I paper pieced the red and colored its belt black. I used the Coffee Cup from Seasonal Sweetheart for a vent pipe again and added one of the little hats from the new Gingerbread House set. I decided to make it a shaker with those adorable little Frappe sequins! Perfect, right? And those lights from the Gingerbread House set were perfect to decorate the camper!
And some of those adorable snowmen joined the party and they've got little frappes themselves! Those sequins were the perfect size... although I think I'd need a larger cup than that.
I used the Christmas without the outline for this one cut in glitter paper and stacked and the Frappy is from the Frappy Camper Perking Spot set. I just added some white Nuvo drops all around for a light snowfall and a trio of sequins from the Soapy Bubbles mix of sequins. (my new favorite!)
