This release includes a clear stamp set in the Clearly Crafty line named The Very Best Gift.
Let me show you how much I love this set - - - six cards!!!
Now let's look at each one. For all of them, I used the new background Boughs & Berries. It's a wonderfully delicate stamp and I did it tone-on-tone just as a simple accent. I used three different colors for the gift on the manger. This one is Pineapple. On each of these, first I die-cut the present (without stamping) and I used my Blender Brushes to brush the same color ink in from the edges to give it a little dimension. Finally I white-embossed the gift, manger, two sentiments and the star.
The next card is done in Gumball. I used a different sentiment inside the gift.
The last one is done in Spearmint. This bigger stamp on the inside shows you how the set got its name. BTW - there is also a version of this sentiment in reverse as a solid stamp - so you could do this on white cardstock and add the color with the sentiment block.
This is a wonderful set!!
There are a large number of new die sets in this release; I've only shown you a few this week. But I couldn't let release week go by without showing you Vintage Sled.
I love the detail in this sled. I layered up the Toffee pieces three times to add some dimension. Then I decorated it with another new die set - Winter Greens. The Little Bits - Snowflake Confetti and the Noel were released previously. (FYI - "Noel" comes with the two little dots over the "e" for a traditional spelling, but I did not notice until I was writing this post that I never added the two little dots.)
This sled will definitely get more attention from me. I definitely want to do it in classic Christmas colors. Or with some of the Christmas Little Bits in my collection - like the ice skates. Or I'm even thinking it would be fun with any of the wonderful Christmas critters in the TE store!
