Alrighty friends...
It's time to give you a little sneaky peek of what's coming for this month's release at Your Next Stamp!
There is SO MUCH good stuff packed into this release... and it will all be revealed at our New Release Blog Hop tomorrow!
To hold you over until then, here is that sneak peek I promised...
This adorable snow couple is just one of the images in a new set called Santa Express Train Carts... it is an add-on to another set being released called Santa Express.
As soon as I saw the "Merry Kiss-mas" sentiment in the set, this idea popped in my head!
Using the Pillow Box Die Set, I cut a pillow box from clear acetate. Two chapstick tubes fit perfectly in the box, with a little room to spare. So, I shredded some Bazzill Ocean Breeze cardstock, and ran the little shreds through my paper crimper to add as a colorful cushion for the chapstick.
The tag was cut from the Winter Fun Tag Die Set, and I hand cut the red matting to back the tag. I colored the snow people, and cut them out to look like they were looking out a window, backed the image with red cardstock, and popped it up on the tag. I blinged up the icicles with some Stardust Stickles.
   The sentiment was then stamped onto a cut out from the Fishtail/Banner Die Set One, adhered onto another hand-cut mat, and popped up below the image.
I finished it off by tying the tag onto the pillow box with a simple red ribbon.
It's really very easy to put together, and I think it would make an adorable stocking stuffer for just about anyone!
