Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Down
My first project today keeps things pretty simple so that mass producing is an option.  I started by die-cutting the base of the Tag Sale #8 die from white & Spring Rain cardstock.  I cut the Spring Rain tag a second time using the layering die for Tag Sale #8.  I layered the two on top of each other using foam tape.

Focal
I die cut the smallest Fancy Flakes die from NEW! Lavender Moon felt.  I adhered it to the center of the tag, finished with a sequin in the center.  

Side
The word "snow" was die-cut with Wonderful Words: Snow from Aqua Mist cardstock.  I stamped it with the striped block from Bitty Background Blocks II using Fresh Snow ink then brushed it with Perfect Pearls.  This was adhered to just the Spring Rain frame portion of the tag.

Felt strip
I finished the top of the tag with a strip of Lavender Moon felt tied with crochet thread.

Snowflake Tag
The end result is a simple tag that will be well received by all of your recipients.

Let It Snow Card
Now for something a bit more bold and bright!  To begin, I wanted to show how you can use the leftover from the Cover Plate: Center Stage die to create a unique background.

Stripes
I popped out all the pieces after die-cutting Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse and Pure Poppy. Then I adhered them onto a narrow 4" white card base.  I varied the widths of separation for a nice modern feel.

Snow
I die-cut "snow" from Raspberry Fizz and then stamped it with the coordinating image using Pure Poppy.  I adhered this with a bit of foam tape over the end of the stripes.

Down
"Let it" was added with True Black ink using the coordinating companion sentiments in Wonderful Words: Snow.

Dashing Through the Snow
Perfect Pearls is a great companion for Wonderful Words: Snow because it can pick up all of the detail in the set really well. 

Sentiment
I stamped the sentiment onto Ocean Tides cardstock and brushed it with Perfect Gold Perfect Pearls, removing the excess with a Swiffer cloth.

Snowflakes
For the background I stamped several stars from 2013 Holiday Tags onto the Claassic Kraft background using Scarlet Jewel, Ripe Avocado and Ocean Tides.  I also added a small snowflake from Instant Photo: Holidays using VersaMark and the Perfect Pearls again.  Everything was adhered to a Scarlet Jewel card base.

Holly Card

My next project keeps things simple and easily mass produceable once again.  I love how quick and easy tag images, like those in 2013 Holiday Tags, make it to create holiday cards.  The sentiment and image are already built in so you only have to stamp once.

Cover plate
I die-cut the Cover Plate: Center Stage from Classic Kraft cardstock and laid it over a piece of Classic Kraft stripes pattern pack.

Tag
I die-cut the Limitless Layers 2-1/4" Oval from Vintage Cream cardstock and stamped it with this tag image using Dark Chocolate.

Holly
I die-cut the holly and berries from Ripe Avocado and Pure Poppy.  After adhering them to the side, I added rhinestones to the die-cut berries.

Down
A strip of Pure Poppy cardstock finishes off the project and adds balance.

Pinecone Tag
This over-sized tag uses my favorite image from 2013 Holiday Tags, the pinecone tag!  It is SO gorgeous and so detailed, you don't need to do much else to it!   I started with the pull out from the Instant Photo Pull Out die collection.  I die-cut it from Ocean Tides cardstock and used it as the base for my extra large tag.  I impressed it with the Cover Plate: Center Stage for some extra texture.

Tag image
I die-cut this decorative oval using the Limitless Layers 2-1/4" Oval dies.  Then added the pinecone tag image in Ripe Avocado.

ButtonI added three strips of white crochet thread under the oval, then added a Pure Popp[y button to the center string just under the oval.Down

The top was finished with some Pure Poppy stitched ribbon.

Happy Holidays Card
I have one last super simple holiday card to share with you today.  

Tag
I stamped another of the 2013 Holiday Tags images directly onto this white card front.  I inked the image with Autumn Rose and then rolled the edges in Scarlet Jewel.  

Liquid pearls
Next, I die-cut the scalloped oval from Limitless Layers 2-1/4" Ovals from Ripe Avocado cardstock, then cut out the middle with the plain oval which created a frame.  I added small dots of Liquid Pearls in each scallop.

Down
Everything was adhered to a Scarlet Jewel card base.  I love how the frame turned out and look forward to making more in the future!  I hope you have enjoyed all the creations that I have shared with you today!  Hopefully you're making your list and checking it twice, planning all of the darling gift packaging and holiday cards you can make with the products we introduced to you today!  Are you excited to get started on some holiday projects yourself?  We would love to hear your initial thoughts on everything we introduced!  Please leave a comment on this post to tell us what you think of the new products and you will be eligible to win big!
