Winter Post: Simple Trio

Happy Wednesday evening! I've wanted to play with this new Holiday Mini catalog set, Winter Post, for several nights, but my sinuses have been killing me...me and most everyone else I've talked to in North Texas! I think it's because of hurricane Ike or something. Anyway, I had visions of *elaborate* cards, but had to settle for *simple* for now! lol! But it's good to show the versatility of a set, right? You know, their complex side and their simple side! These are night photos, so bear with me...

Here's the first one with Red Riding Hood, Kraft, and Confetti White. I ran the Kraft piece through my cheap little craft sewing machine without any thread in it, so I could get the stitched holes with an irregular look. The skaters are punched out with the new 1 3/4" circle punch, love that thing! Oh, and this new striped ribbon from the Holiday Mini is absolutely divine!


This card uses the reindeer from Winter Post, which I stamped in Versarmark, then Chocolate Chip classic ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. I was wishing I had Chocolate Chip craft ink to emboss with because it would have filled in more nicely, and now I just realized I do have that ink in the Craft Stampin' Spots! Doh! Other items include the new paper, yummy felt ribbon, and rub-ons from the Holiday Mini.


This last one is very simple, maybe even too simple for me, but I was pooping out by 11:00. lol! And it needs Vintage Brads, but I'm out, ack! Maybe I'll think of something else to do with it tomorrow night. I do love the felt snowflakes, they are fabulous too. This Holiday Mini catalog is filled with way toooo many goodies, believe me!

Sorry for the spotty recipes, I tried to mention the ingredients that might not be obvious, but please let me know if you have any questions! Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate it!

Very nice! I love the vintage browns and that new paper! And the felt flurries, and the ribbon...all of it! I get mine on Friday but won't be home to play (maybe I'll take it camping with me?). They all know I'm a spaz already.

Splendid set of cards, Angie! I especially adore the reindeer framed in silver!~

Martha said...

Simple or not, these are gorgeous. This set wasn't on my list to order, but now I may have to reconsider!

Beverly said...

Angie, these cards are adorable! I'm sold! Guess I'll have to increase my stampin' budget once the products from the holiday mini are available! I gotta tell you - I don't see how you can just sit down and knock out so many cards in one evening. I'm patting myself on the back for finishing just one challenge card! (BTW - you're going to get a sneak peak of my challenge card!)

I really like the vintage look. So cute. You can just get your little self started on making my Christmas cards for me....I'll need about 50! Haaaaa

P.S. Okay, maybe I need to be trying it myself.

Love how you turned the label holder 90*. Such a simple thing to do, and it changes the look. I love the last one the most, but I am all about simple right now. The felt snowflakes are my fav thing in the mini. (and the felt ribbon)
