I'm leaving bitterness behind...this time I'm cleaning up my mind...there is no space for the regrets...I will remember to forget...


Hello and welcome to the final day of our Winter 2010 New Release Spotlights!


Tonight we'll be partying it up in the Release Party thread in our SCS forum!  Pop in any time between 9 and 11PM Eastern to see the reveals and more inspiring creations from the design team!

So far this week, we've previewed all the new stamps, but there's one more little surprise we have in store for you!

Starting with this release, Julee has designed a new line of coordinating dies called A Cut Above Dies by Verve to compliment our fabulous Verve Stamps!  The Sweet Scallop Tag Die has two coordinating stamps  (the single Sweet Scallop Tag stamp as well as the snowflake tag stamp from Glad Tidings).   As you hop through today's spotlights,  you'll be seeing just how versatile this die can be.  Plus, as with our other hops this week, we've hidden a PRIZE on one of the participating blogs, so leave a little comment love as you hop around to be entered into a drawing to win today's featured die and coordinating single stamp!  Deadline for comment entries is 7PM Eastern tonight!

Here's a quick and easy card I created with the Glad Tidings set and Sweet Scallop Tag Die:




For the main image, I inked up the tag from Glad Tidings with Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler markers, then cut the image out with the die. The base layer is Kraft with all 3 different sizes of snowflakes stamped in Crumb Cake and sponged around the edges. A little seam binding and some pearls & bling were the perfect finishing touches.

Here's a closer look at the focal image:




I hope you enjoy what the divas have to show you today...have fun & I'll see you tonight!
