STAMPlorations Christmas Release Day 4

Hello Crafty Friends!

STAMPlorations are doing a Christmas in August Release. They are releasing 6 stamp sets and 8 CUTplorations dies and, of course, are celebrating in style with a Blog Hop. Welcome to Day 4!

Today we are showcasing two sets designed by STAMPlorations owner Shery under her label Shery Russ Designs. The sets are called Homespun Christmas and Winter Chill.

I was working with the super cute penguins from the Winter Chill set to create this chilled out card. Here it is:

Stamping, watercolouring, fuzzy cutting and a little die-cutting was all that was needed to create this super cute card.

Here are Shery's sets, Winter Chill and Homespun Christmas, in full:
