Hey everyone! It's the first day of the October release countdown at The Greetery and I have a few projects to share using new products that are making their debut this month. I always love crafting for the Christmas/winter season!

All of the new products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on Friday, October 4th, 10AM ET at The Greetery.

This first card features the trees from the new Fir & Foliage No. 2 stamp set. I stamped them with three different shades of green across some Toffee cardstock. The snowflake borders at the top and bottom of the card were created with one of the new Frosty Flakes stencils.

Snowflakes are one of my very favorites when it comes to stamps, dies, stencils, etc. I love adding them to projects and especially love when I can get glittery with them too! I used the single snowflake dies from the Frosty Corners die collection and glittered them up to add to this card. The sentiment is from the new Tree Trimmings stamp set that coordinates with the Fir & Foliage No. 2 stamp set.

  • STAMPS, DIES, & STENCILS: Fir & Foliage No. 2 stamp set (The Greetery), Tree Trimmings stamp set (The Greetery), Frosty Flakes stencil (The Greetery), Frosty Corners dies (The Greetery)

I kept creating with the snowflakes and trees on this set of tags. I added some trimming to the trees using the Tree Trimmings stamp set and then added them to the tags that are stenciled using the Frosty Flakes stencil with Sugar Cube ink.

I added the "Merry Christmas" sentiment onto a notched banner from the Sentiment Suite Basics die collection and a few more glittery snowflakes found their way onto the tags as well! You will hear a little more about those cute tags a little bit later in the countdown, but take my word for it that you will want to add them to your list!

And finally for today, a sweet little church from the new Christmas Eve set on this "Silent Night" card. I nestled the church on a glittery snow covered hill that I die cut with the new Drifting dies. I love the swirling line details that are impressed into the cardstock when you die cut it!

I added a few trees and some softly falling snow into the scene. Betsy shared that this church is the one she goes to for Christmas Eve services and how she has wonderful memories associated with that. I love that personal story from her and that makes the Christmas Eve set all the more special.
