TE Sneak Peeks: Sparkle and Cheer

Hi all! I'm back today with more Sneak Peek goodness. Can you believe that after yesterday there are even more crafty goodies to share today? Today we are sharing peeks of two more stamp sets: Winter Wonderland and Sparkle and Cheer are both additions to the Whimsical Wishes line of stamps. Winter Wonderland is chock full of snowflake goodness AND there is even a matching die set (nicey nice!). Sparkle and Cheer is a beautiful set of silhouette images (I'll be using this set today). The stamp sets are deeply etched rubber (my favorite) and come already trimmed out and on EZ Mount (makes things easy peasy!). These a

Then there are two new Project Pantry Kits (yay!). For my sample below I used the Tinsel & Twig kit. It includes cardstock, Girls Paperie designer paper, ribbon, tree stick pins and some pearls. All of which I used on my card... because I couldn't resist. ;) This month Taylor is introducing something new. When you order one of these Project Pantry Kits you will have access to matching downloadable inspiration sheets with step-by-step instructions for making the cards we are sharing today! Oh yeah... now you will know all of our secrets... Well, maybe not all of them. ;)

Details: I used the sleigh image from the set and stamped it twice: once in red and again in black. The red sleigh body was trimmed and attached over the black sleigh with dimensionals. In the shot below you can see it how the sleigh is popped up. A little red pearl finished the look.
