WMS October Release - Day 2

It's day 2 of the WMS October release! As mentioned already, there are 6 stamp sets for this release - all of them just perfect for those winter cards and gifts. They'll be available in the WMS store Oct 15.

Today we're sharing samples from Nordic Winter. Nordic Winter is such a warm set, filled with great background building options.

It hasn't been that cold here yet.
The hubs makes fun of me when I pull out my fleece for my commute.
But I have an excuse!

I've been biking into work most days.
Because I believe in self-powered commuting.
Because I believe that even if I reduce my carbon footprint one petal at a time, it still matters.
And it's cold when the sun isn't out!

After a few weeks of blissful biking in the summer sun, it has started to rain sometimes.
More of a drizzle. But still... enough to get me cold and wet.
So it's been nice to come home, get into my warm pjs, drink some tea and snuggle under the quilt my mom made.
That "warm" feeling is how I feel about Nordic Winter. If I could snuggle with a stamp set, this one would be it.


I used the pattern that reminds me most of the pattern on my quilt and stamped it repeatedly.
Then I stamped another pattern in Versamark and applied some Perfect Pearls onto it.
Have I mentioned how much I love and adore Perfect Pearls?

The shine is so perfect for winter cards.
And the silver color is as well.
Tied off the card with a silver glittery button and some ribbon.
Because every card can use a little ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!

How cute! These images look so much like cross stitch which I used to do a lot of. Using these stamps means it looks like all the effort for a much quicker time!
