I am one of the featured guest designer along with Jasmine Burgess.  This month we are featuring seasonal products highlighting the upcoming winter and festive holidays.  These products can be found at Laura's Loft.

Laura is also having a Winter Wonderland Giveaway, details at the bottom.

Today I am showcasing one of my favorite stamps from Altenew "Thoughts & Reminders" and also from The Greeting Farm "Let It Snow" stamp set and and matching dies.  I also have used a fantastic sequin mix called Glacial Bliss.

My first creation is a tag I made using the sentiment from  Altenew "Thoughts & Reminders" and the cute little penquin from The Greeting Farm "Let It Snow" stamp set and matching dies.

I watercolored the background on a piece of 140 pound watercolor paper and cut out the tag shape.  I stamped the sentiment onto the tag and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  I then stamped the penquin on white card stock, colored it with markers and used the die to cut it out.  I also cut out the small red heart with the dies from the set and popped both of them with up.  The 3 stars are from the Glacial Bliss sequin mix.  This would make a cute addition to any package.  Just turn the tag over and write to and from on it.

My next creation is a fun card using only  The Greeting Farm "Let It Snow" stamp set and Glacial Bliss sequin mix.

I stamped and embossed the bear onto 140 pound watercolor paper.  I then made a mask for the bear and completed the background.  I distressed the background using a round piece of card stock as a template and different colors of ink.  I then removed the mask on the bear and colored his scarf and cup of cocoa with markers.  I used some white flocking on the bear itself.  I used white embossing powder and embosed the sentiment and the snowflakes.  I used the Glacial Bliss sequin mix to give it a little bling.  I then mounted it on a blue and white piece of decorative paper and mounted that onto a top opening A2 card.  I found the white embellishment I placed on either side in my stash. 

I hope you enjoyed my creations, I had a great time making them.
