Sneak Peek Samples: Winter Swirls......


Today I am going to show you the first card I made with my new stamp set, Winter Swirls. The set will be available on September 15 at Papertrey Ink. Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

I am trying to contain my excitement and maintain a professional composure..... {breathe deep}

This card features a few of the stamps from the set -- but the main focus is the holiday tree.

I started with a pure poppy card base and a strip of the avocado paper. The avocado strip was stamped with some snowflakes from the stamp set in avocado ink. I edged the paper with some fresh snow ink.

I used the scor-bug to create these really cool grooved lines above and below the avocado strip. A piece of swiss dot dark chocolate ribbon is on top of the avocado strip.

I stamped the tree with the avocado ink on the stampers select white, and carefully trimmed it out. I found some tiny dark chocolate buttons from my stash and adhered them to the tree with some adhesive.
I punched a piece of papertrey kraft cardstock with a marvy scalloped circle punch, then stamped it with fresh snow ink using some swirls and snowflakes from the set. The sentiment is from the Winter Swirls set too! That was stamped with avocado ink. I edged the scalloped circle with the fresh snow ink. The circle is adhered to the card with foam squares, then the tree is adhered to the circle with foam squares.
Well, what do you think? (eagerly awaits your reply)

Be sure to check Nichole's blog all week long for sneak peeks of the September stamp releases! This is sure to be a FUN month with all the holiday sets!
