Here are a few projects that I have created with these new stamp sets:
Melanie's new Fabulous Holiday Labels set is a must have. It coordinates with the previously released Fabulous Rose Frame stamp set and the Fabulous Label Die set.
This card uses several of the images from Fabulous Holiday Labels, and the Fabulous Label Die Set. I cut the label die from Blue Denim cardstock, and used the diamond patterned edges with Versamark ink and white embossing powder. The Don't Open image was stamped in Blue denim ink on White Heavy base weight cardstock and die cut with the oval frame die. The center oval was also cut from white cardstock and inked with Blue Denim ink and a sponge dauber. I used a post it note to create the mask for the snow drifts. The deer was stamped and it was added to the center of the oval.
Here is a quick tip video showing an easy way to use your MISTI to
line up your images on the label die cut.

I decided that I wanted to use this card as an actual gift. So I chose to make it a gift card holder.
I created a template for cutting the slots to hold my gift card, and cut those prior to stamping and embossing the card base. The Part Two video showing my gift card and stamping process is linked here.

This card was made with Fabulous Holiday Labels stamps for the Stamp TV release party.
I used two of the label edge stamps to stamp a repeating pattern with Turquoise Sea ink. I added the bell images to the top border using Prickly Pear ink. The sentiment was added in Prickly Pear ink as well and some translucent enamel dots. The panel was matted with Turquoise Sea cardstock and adhered to a top fold card base also embossed with the Snowflake Background embossing folder.
Theresa Momber's new Peaceful Holiday stamp set offers a beautiful mix of colorable as well as silhouette stamps that can make such a variety of holiday as well as year round cards.
For my Stamp TV release party project, I chose to use a few of the silhouette images to make a few gift tags.
I used the largest of the new Decorative tag dies to cut white cardstock. These dies have a gorgeous stitched edge, so I chose to stamp and ink my trees and snowdrifts with Blue Denim ink prior to die cutting. I added the deer with Black Onyx ink.
I added the black and white gingham ribbon to finish the tag.
I used the same stunning tree image with my next card.
I first created a shimmery background on my white card base using the various snowflake images, Versamark ink and gold embossing powder. I then used white embossing powder to create the focal panel using the trees and Peace on Earth greeting on gold metallic cardstock. The panel was trimmed and double matted and added to the cardbase for a simple but stunning card that is easy to mass produce.
