Clearly Besotted Nov. Release - Birch Trees + a video

Goodmorning all,
The super sweet owner of Clearly Besotted Stamps, Stephanie, asked me if I wanted to be Guest Designer for the November release. Of course, I said YES ;o) 
Those of you who know me, know I'm completely in love with the stamps and dies from Clearly Besotted.

Well, enough about me being giggly happy. Let's get back to the main thing here - The new release from Clearly Besotted.
Today is the first day of sneak peeks of the new release. Stephanie has a bunch of fabulous stamps and dies lined up this month, so be sure to pop back every day to see what's coming.
I will post new sneak peeks every day from now till Nov. 5th.
For todays sneak peek I have been playing with the "Birch Trees" stamp & die set.

I also have a video to share with you.
Here I show how I have made the front panel using partial die-cutting for the birch trees.

The winter night background is made with Distress Inks and a ink blending tool. The little dots of white snow is made with a stencil and a sponge dauber.

Be sure to pop by again tomorrow for the next sneak peek.

I highly recommend you stop by all the Design Team ladies at Clearly Besotted for loads and loads of wonderful inspiration.

That is all for today
Pia :o)
