Stamp Simply Winter Release


Hi Friends!

Welcome to the Winter 2022 Release from Stamp Simply!  I love the new stamp sets/bundles and word dies!


I decided to create a set of cards using the new stamps/dies along with the Carta Bella Welcome Winter 6x6 Paper Pad and other dies and supplies.

If you follow my blog, you know that I am trying to create a card for each of the over 950+ Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenges and used a different sketch for each of the cards.

Card #1:  Merry Christmas Wishes Stocking

I used the Splitcoaststampers SC30 Sketch  from 2005 (flipped upside down:-)) for the layout on this card. 

The background panels are trimmed from different patterns of the designer paper from the Carta Bella Welcome Winter 6x6 paper pad, layered onto navy cardstock and mounted onto a white card base.

The Tim Holtz Crochet Die was die cut from white cardstock and was layered onto a vertical panel of white cardstock (hard to photograph white on white).

The stocking image from Christmas Stockings & Mittens Bundle was stamped onto the Carta Bella paper, die cut with the coordinating stocking die, white cardstock used for the toe, heel, cuff and snowflake pieces, everything was layered together and the sprigs were die cut from green cardstock.

The lighter blue cardstock panel behind the stocking was die cut with the Pierced Rectangle Dies.

Shimmer was added with a clear glitter marker to the stocking and snowflake. 

The card was finished off with a silver cord bow and pearls.

Card #2 was designed in basically the same way as card #1 with a few additions.

I used the Splitcoaststampers SC700/SC01 Sketch Challenge for the layout and designed the three tags by stamping the new Snowflake Blessings Border Strip  with navy and light blue ink onto white cardstock, trimming to a rectangle to fit the three light blue tags die cut with the Sizzix Thinlits by Tim Holtz- Tag Collection dies.

The Blessings word die was die cut from navy cardstock (I die cut two and layered them together for dimension).  Shimmer was added with a clear glitter marker.
