Today we get to show off the beautiful new, WTG stamp set....Who's that Girl Gets Cozy with Cocoa....she sold out F.A.S.T. on VIP Night. If you missed out, don't fret....she can be yours along with all the other fabulous Brand Spankin' new products coming on Nov.1.
Since I did a holiday-ish card for the VIP new product tour, I changed gears a bit and used some non-holiday papers and colors and kept it to a general, winter theme card.
 I used some gorgeous new Authentique papers (from their Free Bird line) and Jen's October ASFYTT to pull this one together. WTG is stamped on X-press blending cs and colored with copics. I cut her out and then mounted her up on an Open Scallop Doily.
I decided I need a tag, and while I adore all the die-namic tags available, I reeeee-ally wanted to use the mug from the stamp set. So, you can see I turned IT into a tag.
 Inked up the words seperately and stamped them one, on top of the other to fit on the mug. I tied it on with some butter cream twine.
Wondering how I cut out that teeny tiny piece behind the handle???? I'll show you.....I punch a hole with a hole punch.
 Then I slide my paper snips carefully in the hole and begin to trim. Turning the paper, not my scissors as I go. Slow and steady is the trick.
 One more thing to point out....see that grey scallopy strip behind my image??? It's a new die-namic.
 I guess this sketch wasn't the best to show it off, since most of it is hidden, but it's called Wonky Scallops border.  I cut two layers, off set them and added them to my card.
Here's a closer look at the new wonky scallop border......yep, guessed it, I LOVE it! Haven't met a scallop I didn't like.  And you'll be seeing more of this through out most of my teaser posts.

Off you go....continue to get excited....hop of over to Kim's Blog for the Full DT line up.

Oh, and be sure to give our newest DT member, Karen Giron, a GREAT BIG WELCOME!!!!  So happy she's here.
