September Group Post (Part 1)

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 new release.  And, it is currently 25% off for a limited time. Part 1 of Christmas 2018 is also on sale. See those designs here.

Group Posts give you the opportunity to see more card samples from the Design Team. So we are continuing that again for this release. We have 3 samples for your viewing pleasure today.

Card 1: Our first sample is from Lois Bak. She used the Poinsetta w/Flourish die to create this festive card. Poinsettias are such a delight to display at the holidays, and they always look so beautiful on a Christmas card. The background for her bold poinsettia is some Christmas music paper that just adds the perfect touch. If you are looking for a design to do multiples of, this would be a good one.
Card 2: Our next sample is from Pam MacKay. She used the Christmas Village 1 die to create this beautiful woodland scene. A Christmas card with a church in the woods always has such a serene appeal. She sponged her background with distress ink for just a touch of color and also used a stencil and embossing paste for her snow. Notice how she used some pale yellow cardstock to give the look of soft lighting in the church. This is another card that would be easy to recreate for your own Christmas cards.
Card 3: The 3rd and final sample for today is another card from Lois Bak. On this card, she created such a cute indoor scene using the new Cozy Fireplace Pets die.  How comfy the dog and cats look sleeping in front of the fire, waiting for Santa's arrival. Designer paper was used to create the look of a wood floor and wallpaper. She stamped her merry Christmas sentiment. This would be a great card for the dog and cat owners on your Christmas card list.
Well that's it for our cards for today. I hope the samples have sparked some ideas for ways to use these new dies. And, remember they are currently 25% off in the online store.

I love the sleeping kitties. Wish I could get them by themselves. I don't need another fireplace. (or the dog LOL)
