Group Post w/Christmas Designs

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit today. We are sampling DT cards from Part 2 of the 2018 Christmas release. There are 29 new designs in this release. 

And, speaking of new releases Christmas Part 3 has just been released along with some new Halloween dies. You will find these in the online store at a 25% off sale. There is also an exclusive die that can only be purchased through the online store. Check out the sweet Dakota the Husky die.

The DT will be showing samples soon with these new dies. Today, we have a group post showing samples from the recently released Christmas Part 2 dies. All the card samples today are ones that could easily be mass produced for Christmas card giving.

Card 1: This first sample is from Jeanne Knobbe. She used the Grapevine Wreath w/ Bird and the Love, Peace & Joy dies to create this soft and serene card. The wreath was colored with Copic markers except for the bird which was left in white. The bird and peace word are covered in two coats of wink of stella for a bit of shine. Notice that she continued the sparkle by layering the image panel with silver metallic cardstock.
Card 2:  Our next sample is from Anja Zurga. She used the Christmas Village 1 & Christmas Village 2 dies to create her beautiful night time scene. The background is sponged with distress oxide inks and then she splashed with a bit of water. She also sponged a little yellow ink to give the effect of a soft glow coming from the buildings.
Card 3: Our next sample is from Janja Albreht. She used the Winter Deer Oval + The Merry Christmas w/Deer Family dies to create her woodland scene. She used patterned paper with a subtle design that gives a beautiful whimsical look to this card. It reminds you of a misty moor. Her oval cut in the medium shade of brown draws your eye right to the deer image.
 Card 4:  Our last sample for today is from Anja Zurga. She used the Peeker Snowmen die to create a beautiful Christmas tag. By using black cardstock as a background it created a dramatic look for her sweet snowmen. The sentiment in white ink gives a chalkboard look to her tag. Wouldn't a tag like this look great on that special Christmas present. It's a gift in itself.
That's our samples for today. Hope the team has given you some new ideas for using these fabulous Christmas dies.
