Whether you are working on your Christmas cards, holiday tags and décor, everyday winter greetings, or masculine designs… our newest release, Welcome Winter, has something for everyone! Join us over the next few weeks as we take a closer look at the new stamps and dies included in this collection.

All new products (and a look at the complete catalog) will be available in our online store VERY SOON on Wednesday, October 10!

Today we take a closer look at an adorable stamp set that is sure to warm your heart during any of the cold winter months.

Introducing 3 x 4 Inch Transparent Set 30-521 Nose to Nose

On this first card 30-521 Nose to Nose was used to create a one layer watercolor scene. This design could be used for Christmas cards or sent anytime in the winter to cheer the recipient. In fact, change the sentiment for a birthday or anniversary for even more use!

Products featured on the card above: 30-521 Nose to Nose, 30-520 Christmas Bunch, 40-636 Birches

Design details: Onto Canson 140 Lb. Cold-Press Watercolor Paper, stamp main bear image using Memento Ink (Toffee Crunch). Stamp main image a second time onto masking paper, fussy cut, and adhere to first stamped image on the scene to be used as a mask. From masking paper, also hand trim a small hill/ground. Add to scene and then stamp trees in background using Ranger Archival Ink (Shadow Grey). Remove masks and paint entire scene with Sakura Koi Field Sketch Box watercolors and add additional shading and fur using colored pencils. Draw snowflakes using a white gel pen. Sentiment stamped with Ranger Archival Ink (Potting Soil).

Next, these adorable bears (30-521 Nose to Nose) were combined with our new Creative Die to create fun night sky.

Introducing Creative Die 51-461 Starry Night

Products featured on the card above: 51-461 Starry Night, 30-521 Nose to Nose, 30-516 Smile All Season

Design details: To create background, ink white cardstock with Memento Ink (Nautical Blue, Danube Blue, Summer Sky) using an ink blending tool and foam pads. Die cut stars from this background and layer onto cardstock inked with Distress Inks (Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey). Add leftover stars from die cutting around the background, coloring them first with a blue marker. Layer bears, colored with Copic markers, and hand trimmed snow/ground to the scene. Sentiment stamped with Ranger Archival Ink (Potting Soil).
