Hello Lovelies! There are so many delights in this release so it was hard to choose what I wanted to focus on, but I eventually picked Yuletide Colorize. Trust me, it's so beautifully detailed and will be well worth the investment for putting it together!
If you have been here before, you'll know that I adore custom-coloring cardstock with my stamping inks and we will be doing that here as well. apart from the ink you will definitely needle the new dies which can be purchased individually or you can get all the new goodies in a bundle available at Simon Says Stamp.
Let's take a closer look at this die set!
Apart from the inks, we'll need a few more friends to make Christmas pink:
