Winter + Christmas Release Week – Day One

Welcome to Day One of our Winter + Christmas 2021 Reveal Week! We’re sneak peekin’ today through Thursday! Everyday will be packed with tons of eye candy and inspiration. Our new release hits the shop on Friday at 9:00 am pacific and we’ll be celebrating with an Instagram Hop. We have two amazing Design Ambassadors joining us today so let’s get started!

Emily Mydlowski’s card duo features the new Holly Jolly Christmas + the Essential Stars Designer Dies.

DESIGNER TIP: Need the perfect cozy heather gray for your projects? Look no further than your tried & true black ink pad. For my layered black and gray trees, I second generation stamped the pine tree image from Holly Jolly Christmas with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink.

We also have Sandy Allnock today featuring the new All Wrapped Up set:

DESIGNER TIP: Mask the bear and gifts, and use an airbrush or inks to create a glow that fades into night. Since sparkle makes everything better, use Stickles to make the lights twinkle! 

We can’t wait to hear from you! What are you loving so far from the Winter + Christmas Release?! We’ll be back again tomorrow with more reveals, you don’t want to miss out!

    Great cards and color combo! The bear wrapped in lights is especially cute, and I like the fun details on Sandy Allnock’s card, like the string of lights extending to the end of the sentiment.
