Welcome to ODBD's December Release!!

Hi Everyone!!  For those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving - I hope it was a wonderful one!!

Welcome to ODBD's December New Release post.  We have another amazing selection of stamps, dies and papers to share with you today!!

Both my projects feature the same wonderful Sled from the Let it Snow stamp set, cute little tags from the new Mini Tag Custom Dies, as well as the wonderful Patriotic Collection Papers.  These papers are beautiful, and can work for Christmas cards as well!!

To make these cards I started by stamping and coloring the snowy sled scene using Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils, and decorating with liquid glaze, flocking powder and glitter.  Next I stamped and die-cut the sentiments, added the other die-cut elements, and then went to work on the finishing touches.

This first card shows the Sled on a banner with winter greenery from the Fancy Foliage custom die set, the Let it Snow sentiment, and some fun sequins.

My second card shows the sled on the Vintage Labels custom die, along with a couple more of these fun new little tags!!  Love how versatile they are.

Love your use of color and your coloring ability! The Christmas greens have wonderful texture and fit so gracefully with the image! The twine and splitting the sentiment between the two tags are just great on the seconnd card!!!!
