I’ve been havin’ fun with some of the new Savvy Stamps Holiday Dies! The above design was sparked by some *uber* awesome pillows I pinned to one of my Pinterest boards (the Holly Daze). I really like the grey, red & white together!
The Hero Arts/Sizzix (Christmas Words &) Dots embossing folder was a favorite of mine last year, and it’s a definite favorite again this year–those dots make the perfect snowfall texture!
I’m also havin’ a love affair with Bazzill paper… I like the canvas texture and gorgeous color range of their Classic Line and the luscious heavy weight of their Card Shoppe papers, too. I’m not affiliated to Bazzill, but I really do like their papers!
And, this one was just one of a few ideas that popped into my head when I first saw the little sled die–so stinkin’ cute!!!
The Scattered Dots stamp I used for the “snowfall” is probably one of my most used stamps–makes great snow, confetti, “bokeh”… people laugh at me when I say how often I use this stamp, but seriously, it is a great multi-purpose image. :)
I typically handcut my snow drifts (the layer in the foreground was popped up and both are glittaaaahfied, of course)–I’ve done it for so many years that I can almost do it blind, LOL! But, if you have trouble cutting those curvy lines and getting them just right, MFT makes a great Snow Drifts die that’ll do it perfectly for you every single time.
Now I wanna go put on some holiday music and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate… Mmmmm mmmmm…
Have a great weekend!
