mr. twigster

Good morning everyone! I'm so excited to show you a brand new stamp set coming out in the SU! Holiday Mini. This stamp set and all the rest of the wonderful products (i.e. the beautiful DSP from yesterday and today) will be available Oct 1st - Jan 18th.

Anywho, I got the set, Mr. Twigster, in my pre order and I think he is so cute! This picture does this card absolutely no justice. There is glitter and bling everywhere. The hat, boots, lights, and the red cardstock are all giltter and the snowflake has a very pretty Swarovski crystal in the middle. Oh, and the snowflake is just cut out from the DSP that you see in the background and popped up on dimensionals. The card size is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".

I hope you like this little preview of the new Holiday Mini! There will be more to come!

Have a super Thursday everyone! Go craft something fun and take a moment or two to remember not only the tragedy of 9-11 but what it did for our country for awhile. It brought us together, made us appreciate each other, and for me it made me appreciate not only the military all that much more but fire fighters and police as well. Remember to put your flag out today!

Such a fun, cute card. I bet the glitter shows up in person. Glad you told us, b/c you right you can't see it in the photo. Love the snowflake and the crystal is perfect for it. I have been using white as a background for cards lately too...I love it. I became so accustom to using colored cardstock in the background, that white is a nice, fresh change.

Love the Twigster. I stayed home with Skyler today because he has laringitis and was pleased to see that the news stations went easy on the footage of 9/11. More focus on the people it affected and such.

I wasn't too crazy about this set, but I love what you did with him! Such a cute card, and great idea to cut the snowflake from the paper too!
