Two Feet Deep + Grand Ampersand & Holiday Cheer Day 4

Hello and welcome to the fourth day of the Papertrey Ink September countdown and the first Design Team group post! 

Today's group post is all about showcasing the new Two Feet Deep stamp set and the Fancy Flakes die collection.  This combination comes just in time for the holiday season! A stamp set as beautifully designed as this one is sure to be treasured!  I just love how easy it is to make a big impact with such a simple card or tag.  These carefully detailed image truly shine and will be loved by you as well as those who receive your heartfelt projects and cards.  

Here's what I've cooked up for you today...
First up the card.  Simple, but these detailed images make this a striking design.
And of course I just had to incorporate a little bit of Grand Ampersand into this design.  I simply chose a sentiment that already features an ampersand, cut it out and replaced it with this larger one.  Plus, I just love how sentiments look when cut into pieces.
Two Feet Deep is perfect for tags too!  I love how the largest Fancy Flakes die looks when turned into a tag like I've done here.
Here's How: I die cut one snowflake and two circles.  Attached one circle directly to the front.  Onto the backside, I attached some twine before I covered it with the second circle.  Then turn over and embellish!
This give you the option to add a "to" and "from" on the back.
Here's a close up shot of the layering I've don't to top this simple tag.  A couple snow shoes and a pine bough, finished up with a sentiment strip.
Now, let me move onto some more Grand Ampersand.  This time I've paired it with the fun previously released Holiday Lights stamp set.
Three pieces from the Grand Ampersand set are featured here... "merry", "bright" and the "and" banner (isn't it cute?!).
Last but not least... Holiday Cheer!  And of course, I couldn't resist using the Fancy Flakes again.  I die cut the snowflakes from soft stone cardstock.
The largest snowflake was topped with a 2" circle, which I stamped with the hanging ornaments and a sentiment from the Holiday Cheer stamp set.

Well, that concludes my look at Two Feet DeepGrand Ampersand and Holiday CheerJust remember... these stamp sets (along with the dies) will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning September 15th
