Paper Sweeties October Release Countdown

Welcome back to Day 2 of the October Release Countdown for Paper Sweeties!  All of the new stamps and dies that we are showcasing will be available in the Paper Sweeties store on October 15th!  Yay!

As I mentioned in my post yesterday....today I am focused on mittens!  The new Stitched Tags #2 stamps and sweet cuts dies are FABULOUS!  You got to see the tree and bow in my post yesterday.  Today is all about the mitten and bow!   

The mittens pictured above use the "Stitched Tags #2" mitten and bow dies along with a snowflake die from the "Snow Friends Sweet Cuts" and a heart tag die from "Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts".  I cut the mitten tag twice - once from white card stock for the back of the mitten and once from patterned paper.  I then cut either a heart or a snowflake from the center of each of the patterned paper mittens to create a shaped window.  I stamped a sentiment in the center of the window using a stamp from the new "Stand Add-on Manger" stamp set.   I cut apart the "peace, love, joy" stamp so I could stamp each of the words individually. On these tags I used the word "joy". Some glue and glitter and these tags were all ready for gift giving!  I love how easily these came together!  

Here are a few more mitten tags I have made  this month:
 Red gingham with red felt bows.  The "To and From" stamps are from the "You're Invited" stamp set.

 Shaker mittens with red jingle bells.  The one on the left in red gingham has a hidden sentiment that says "Let it Snow" from the stamp set of the same name along with some glitter and "Strawberry" sequins.  The green gingham mitten is filled with "Green Apple" sequins and glitter.  The striped mitten just has glitter by itself.  Three different looks depending on what you prefer.

 Red and white striped mittens with red card stock bows.

Red mittens with red gingham bows.

And last some green gingham mittens with red bows....

Whoo!  Lots of pictures!  I hope you made it this far!  I make a lot of Christmas gift tags each year because I hand them out to all of my extended family at Thanksgiving.  It is my gift to them each year.

  Now I get to send you off to all of the other designers who have more wonderful inspiration to share with you:
I hope you will come back tomorrow for RELEASE DAY!  
Tomorrow I am sharing some lovely ornaments!

NOTE:  New products will not be linked until the release date of October 15th
