snowfall - mitten

Welcome to day 2 of the countdown!

Here are a couple more fun sneak peeks of my sets Snowfall and Snowfall Additions. These sets will be available for purchase on October 15th at Papertrey Ink.

One of things that I did when I designed the Snowfall sets was to coordinate the designs with my Rustic Snowflakes set. You are going find so many fun combinations for using all of these sets together. All of the sentiments use the same fonts and so you will be able to mix and match those together as well.

I have been really having fun playing with the mittens that are included in the set. They are just the right size and so many of the snowflake designs are fit right onto the mitten to dress it up.


For these mittens I stamped the mitten image and then stamped the snowflakes right on top with a white pigment ink. Can you see the snowflake on the Avocado mitten? It's a snowflake from the Rustic Snowflakes set!


I love how sweet the mittens are when they are cut out and attached together with a string. You could use these as is for a gift tag.


I attached my mittens to a pocket card with a brad and some dimensionals. The snowflakes on the white note card are fun little accents (you might have noticed some on my scrapbook page yesterday) and they are great stamped by themselves or punched out. A 1/2" circle punch is the perfect size to punch right up to the edge of the design or if you want a narrow border (like on the scrapbook page) go up the 5/8" circle punch.


To create a card for the avocado mitten I wanted to stamp some more snowflakes for a background. This snowflake background stamp works like the Polka Dot Basics set. It's designed to fit together as you continuously stamp without having to adjust the stamp to the right or left. I stamped the snowflake background first in avocado and then again over the top in a white pigment ink.


I trimmed my background piece for strips on the top and bottom of this card. The snowflake flourish that I used in the background of the main image is also a part of the Snowfall set. I can't wait until you can all see all the little fun bits and pieces that are included in the set that you will love using on your projects!
