This release is super fun and packed full of great winter related stamps and dies. My favorite has to be the super fun Reinbeer set that I plan to use on an upcoming project. I love the Drink Tag die set that I used in yesterday's preview project. If you would like to check out all the new products (CLICK HERE!) to go to the Your Next Stamp online store new products page.  I have three projects for you today, so keep scrolling for more inspiration.



My first project uses the brand new Hello Winter stamp set and coordinating dies. I started with two pieces of Stampin' Up!'s Night of Navy cardstock. I used the Echo Park Artic snow stencil to create some snow in my background. The first I used Faber Castel's Whipped Spackle. This is a white embossing paste. The second, I used Nuvo Glimmer paste in Moonstone. This is an embossing paste clear in color with glitter mixed in it.  Once they both dried. I cut them down using the second from largest die in the Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangles die set. 



I used the Houses on a Hill die to add some houses in the snowy background.  This die is open on the bottom which means that it doesn't cut the bottom. You can see in the photos that it cuts a landscape of houses and trees on a hill, like the name suggests. For a detailed explanation you can scroll down to find the link to the YouTube video I made creating this project. I cut this out of Neenah 110 lb Solar White cardstock. I ink blended some Distress Oxide ink in Fossilized Amber and cut out small pieces to adhere some light behind the windows in the houses. This piece was then popped up with foam tape onto the snowy panel.

I then stamped the sentiment "bring on the snow" on the one card with Versafine Onyx Black ink. The images and the "snow fun" sentiment where stamped onto Neenah 80 lb Solar White cardstock with Your Next Stamp Black Olive Ink. I then colored the images with my Copic Markers. For the exact markers I used, look below for a Copic Color Map. I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

My images were popped up with 3M foam tape. I finished off both cards by adding some matte white Gumdrops from the Your Next Stamp Milk and Cookies Gumdrops set. 

Look below for my next project. 









For this project I used the brand new Merry Everything stamp set and Merry Die. I started with a piece of Altenew Moonrock cardstock and cut it down using the second to largest die in the Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangle die set. I then embossed it with the Stampin' Up! Softly Falling  embossing folder.

I used the Merry word die to cut the work from Papertrey Ink's Tropical Teal cardstock three times, and adhered them together with Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive. Once all the layers were adhered, I added some snow on the tops of the letters with the Marvy Snow Pen. I adhered the Merry, also using Ranger Multi medium directly to my fallen snow piece.


The subsentiment was stamped with Versamark Ink onto a piece of Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock and white heat-embossed it with Hero Arts ultra fine embossing powder. I cut it into a strip and popped it up onto my panel using 3M foam tape. To add something a little extra, I cut my favorite wonky heart from Papertrey ink Love Stories out of Stampin' Up!'s Real Red cardstock and stuck it onto my project again using liquid adhesive. 



I hope you enjoyed my projects today and don't forget to comment along the hop to increase your chances of winning a $25 gift certificate to the Your Next Stamp online store.

Thank you for visiting my blog today,
