Hi, hello! I have some cards to share today that feature the December Mini stamps that have been part of the promo gifts offered through out the month. Today they are all available as a bundles, either stamps only or stamps with dies. You can find them linked below.

This card uses both the Tufted Chair and the Armchair stamp set that was previously released. I also included products from the Parlor Palms Dies set and the Paint-A-Flower Coral Sunset stamp set for the sentiment.
For both of my cards today I stamped each of the chair/sofa stamps onto multiple patterned papers, and fussy cut them with fine tipped scissors. I fussy cut the pillows from other papers to coordinate with the rest. Then I used Copics and Altenew Artist Markers to add shadows, giving the images depth and dimension.
I die cut all the pieces of the potted plant using the Parlor Palm die set, cutting from solid colored cardstock and adding shading with alcohol based markers. I stamped the greeting from the PAF Coral Sunset stamp set, stamping with Obsidian Pigment ink and heat setting with clear embossing powder.
Then earlier this month, the Comfy Couch stamp and die set was released, at first as a free-with-purchase promotion, but is now available in the store.
Once again, I stamped on patterned paper (an old plaid design by American Crafts, that I still had in my stash), for both the couch and cushions. This set includes the adorable floor lamp that I also stamped, colored with alcohol based markers, and fussy cut on the line. The trick to getting a good outline is to run the side of a black marker along the edge of the cut paper so that no white paper shows along the edge.
The potted plant on this card is die cut from the Monstera 3D die set, cutting the leaves and stems from solid colored cardstock and the pot layers from white cardstock which I color with alcohol based markers. The sentiment on this card is made with stamps from the Wavy Roses stamp set.
I think these three stamp and die sets are so cute and useful and versatile and would love if there were more sets, say, with clocks and windows and decor items, to accompany these! Wouldn’t that be amazing??
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
