Holiday Hugs with Kindred Stamps

Today I'm sharing my October release projects with Kindred Stamps, using their soon to release set Holiday Hugs.  I created a collection of projects that I hope inspire you.  (Affiliate links used throughout when available; thank you!  I earn a small commission from sales at no extra cost to you.)

Supplies used:
Holiday Hugs (new)
Merry and Bright Paper Pack (new)
Stitched Alpha Die Set
Jaded Blossom Word Bubble Dies
Jaded Blossom Gift Box Slider Die
Jaded Blossom Snowglobe Die
Love You Shaker Memory Dex Die
Circle Punches
Stampin Up Project Life Cards and Labels Dies (retired)
Mixing It My Way shaker mix in Snow Princess (I think)

I colored all characters with Spectrum Noir TriBlend alcohol markers and fussy cut them out.  Using the new papers, I assembled my projects!

My first pair of cards, actually, require no coloring!  I found various tutorials on how to make an Etch A Sketch card, resulting in my versions above.  I did add a layer of acetate behind the red frame and atop the sketching panel.

I used torn vellum to create the (hard to capture) snow drifts for our dear elf as he embarks upon his journey to the city.  The narwhal bids him good luck!

I love the colorful rainbow striped paper from Merry and Bright Paper Pack and used it on this Love You memory dex card.  (I think he likes her..)

To mute the background paper in the snowglobe card, I used vellum over the top and filled with shaker mix, gluing the vellum flat to the card front.  You can't even tell!  I didn't even try to hide it!  LOL

 My final project is a slider card with gift card slots on the slider insert.  This Jaded Blossom Gift Box Slider Die made this quick to assemble and look so amazing!  So, I would love to know which project is your favorite.  I am having a difficult time choosing -- I seriously love them all.

The entire Kindred Stamps release will be available this Friday at 8am PST/11am EST.
