Sneak Peek Day #1 - Jingle all the way!

Happy Halloween and welcome to Day #1 of our Christmas and Winter Stamp Release Party!

There are 2 posts today - scroll down for this weeks Monday Challenge Winners!
 
Today's stamp set is Jingle all the way.
(All of the new stamp sets will be available to order and ship on Saturday!!)

I am so excited to show you all of the fun projects this week!  Each day we will be giving you a peek at one of  5 new stamp sets.  Then, on Saturday, we will have a blog hop giving away one of the new stamp sets at each stop!  We have been having so much fun playing with the new stamps!!

All of today's projects come from the Jingle all the way stamp set.

Here is my project!


The cute little guy on the sled was cut at 3.33 inches from the Winter Frolic cartridge.  I stamped the sentiment on a tag cut from Winter Frolic at 4.25 w by 2.87 h (stretched on my Gypsy).


The cute face stamp is from Peachy Keen Stamps and the sentiment is from my new Jingle all the way set.  I tied Twisted Lime bakers twine around the tag and inked everything with Walnut distress ink from Ranger.


I used a little glossy accents on the sled runners, shoes, and face, then finished it off with some zig-zag stitching.



Now for some projects made by my Super Design team!:

Kate
 I love how Kate embossed the door and framed her sentiment with the wreath on this gorgeous shape card!



Jayne
What  a fun idea to stamp on the seam binding ribbon!!  Jayne's little gift box is sooo pretty!



Marlene
Isn't this card just beautiful?!?!  I love how Marlene framed her sentiment and all of the fun extras on her bow!



Candy

Flower Shoppe: Small Daisy

Hope you all are having a great week!  I'm back with another tutorial using the Flower Shoppe cartridge.  This is such a great cartridge!  Click HERE to see all of the videos in this series.


I used flower soft for the orange center of my flower.


Watch this video to see how I made this sweet little blue flower with the flower soft center:
 


For this flower I added a second flower in the center:


I used the fabulous Petal Roller by Imaginisce.


Here is a video showing how I made the daisy with the rose center:




My daughter, Natasha made a similar flower and I love how her inking turned out!



For this tiny flower I added a little diamond glaze and sprinkled with glitter.
