Beautiful coloring on the trimmings set. Each flower is distinct, which is really impressive since they're all the same color. And the little village is just adorable. It's the platonic ideal of a winter village, I think. Thank you for sharing your lovely ideas with us!

So now onto my cards I have to show you today, using brand new Studio Katia products from the September 2018 release! My first card is made using Poinsettia Trimmings. Isn't this a gorgeous stamp set? I enjoyed the relaxation of coloring all these lovely flowers, then mounting them on some houndstooth patterned paper and embellished with a few gorgeous Midnight Blue Crystals. Check out the new glue pen by SK as well, it was a great adhesive to adhere my layers! Products shown and linked below!

For my second card, I was able to play around with this ADORABLE new stamp/die set, Holiday Village. I also created the hills using the new pierced Trimmings Borders dies. I love how the piercing is on both sides of this die, and I was able to cut 2 different pierced hills at once that fit together perfectly!  Lastly I embellished with the Iridescent Ice Flakes Crystals in the sky. Along with the heat embossed snowflakes, this looks like a perfect winter day in the village!  Products shown and linked below!

  3. I love your first card using the Poinsettia Trimmings stamp set. Your coloring of the poinsettias is lovely! The stamped panel was gorgeous alone, but you stepped it up a notch by adding that black and white border behind it. What an impact that made to your card! Your second card using the Holiday Village is just adorable! It's the kind of card you want to frame and bring out year after year! What a creative card maker!
