MamaElephantBirthdayStampede-10-14-15

I had the immense pleasure of working with two of the new stamp sets, and let me just say that I had a blast with both of them!!  This project features the new stamp set called Reindeer Games!!  There are some of the cutest little reindeer images in this set that will suit any situation or circumstance you could ever dream up for these darling little critters!!  (There are also coordinating dies for this stamp set, sold separately.)  I decided I wanted Rudolph to be flying across a snowy cityscape (from the Central Park Stamp Set).  The banner was created using the Bloomsies Stamp Set and coordinating dies, and the scalloped edge of the image panel was created using the scalloped rectangle from the Basic Set Dies.  And that sweet sentiment?  It’s from the Winter Wonderland Stamp Set (after performing a bit of stamp surgery!)

MamaElephantBirthdayStampede-Two-10-14-15

My second project features the new stamp set called Jingle Greetings!!  Kryssi’s handwriting is AH-MAZING, and she’s used it to create some beautiful holiday sentiments!  There are some sweet companion images that I used here to create a wreath.  The Jingle Greetings Stamp Set will most definitely be one of my “go-to” sets for my holiday cards, that’s for sure!!

Okay, so that’s it for me.  To continue on with the blog hop, please click on through to the fabulous Kristina Werner’s blog where you will no doubt find something incredible!!  Don’t forget to leave your comments along the way!!  Thanks so much for stopping by today -  I’m thrilled that you did and I hope you’ll drop by again soon!!
