It's beginning to look a lot CHRISTMAS! Holidays stamps are everywhere!!!
It's release time again at YOUR NEXT STAMPS and we are gearing up for the holiday season that is fast approaching. This new release is FAB-U-LOUS, with so many amazing new stamps and die. Grab your coffee, tea or maybe even a hot chocolate and sit back and enjoy a bit of holiday inspiration.
It may be quite obvious today, which of this month's release images are my favourite. Now the Gift From Cuddles the bunny, which I previewed yesterday in our sneak peek (here) was fun and makes the sweetest holiday card. I also enjoyed creating with the the sweet Cupboard Full of Cuties, which you will see in a few days. For today however it's all about SANTA and this one is not sporting a sleigh.
For my first card I used SANTA EXPRESS STAMP along with the matching dies. To make the card more interactive, I added a little folded "book" on the front of the card to show off this image a few fun dies. The Doodlebug paper was just perfect for this set, maybe because it is also called Santa Express.
Also featured in my fun card today is the Snowflake border die, Winter Fun tag (snowflake), Sled and Presents die, Stitched Fishtail tag two, and the ever fabulous white Gumdrop.
For my second card, I also created a card using the SANTA EXPRESS stamp and die, however I also added to it the SANTA EXPRESS TRAIN CARTS stamp set (which also has a fabulous matching die).
This Santa is enjoying a leisurely drive with loads of presents in his carts. To create the mounds of snow I cut a rough snow hill using a double sided adhesive sheet. I applied this to white cardstock then peeled off the other the backing and applied Sparkly Fluff (from Our Craft Lounge).
Here are the stamps and dies used on this fun card.
To celebrate this months release Karen is offering a fabulous deal on the new release items.
