Hi Stamping Friends!
The Trimming The Town Suite reminds me of those lighted Christmas villages, which my mom collected later in life. Today, I'm sharing a couple of swap cards featuring this fun, winter town collection!
Programming Note: I have rescheduled today's LIVE Class to tomorrow, Friday, November 20, at 9am ET. Join me then on my Too Cool Stamping Facebook page!
Last Day For This Countdown To Christmas Class!
Trimming The Town Winter Night Card
My favorite part of the Trimming The Town Suite is hands-down the Trimming The Town Designer Series Paper! This card, created by Megan Herst, spotlights images cut directly from the paper and the only stamping is the sentiment! Talk about easy and awesome!
Holiday Homes—Megan begins by adhering a 4" x 3" piece of Trimming The Town snowy pattern paper on the top of a Misty Moonlight card base. Next, she used the Home Together Dies to die-cut the house directly from the DSP and adhere it in the center of the card. She die-cut a pine tree and smaller house from the DSP, too.
Snowy Scene—Megan die-cut the two snow hills with the Home Together Dies from 4" x 1-3/4" and 4" x 2-3/4" pieces of Whisper White. The smaller hill is adhered with SEAL and the larger front layer with the trees is popped up with Dimensionals. She tucked the small house between the layers and popped up the tiny tree with Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—Megan stamped a For Unto Us sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink onto a small Whisper White Stitched Nested Labels die-cut. She finished by adding a few All The Trimming Embellishments floating around the winter sky! So sweet!

Trimming The Town Christmas Wishes Card
Marisa Alvarez created this fun and festive holiday card using items from the Trimming The Town Suite, too! Rather than die-cutting the house focal point, she she stamped the elements and colored them with Stampin' Blends! Either way is awesome! Love that coordination!
Background Basics—Marisa began her card by embossing the front of a Crumb Cake card base with the Woodland 3D Embossing Folder. Then, she added some strips of Trimming The Town Designer Series Paper measuring 1" x 4", 1-1/4" x 4" and 1" x 4".
Holiday Home—Marisa stamped the Coming Home house in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a Whisper White Layering Circles die-cut. She colored it in with Pool Party, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin' Blends Markers. It's layered onto a Basic Black scallop circle Layering Circles die-cut and adhered to the card front. She stamped a tree in Black onto Whisper White cardstock, colored that with Old Olive and Soft Suede Blends, die-cut it with the Home Together Dies and popped it up with Dimensionals. The wreath was stamped in Black onto Whisper White cardstock, colored with Old Olive and Real Red Blends and die-cut and popped up, too.
Sweet Sentiment—Marisa stamped a sentiment from the Banner Year stamp set in Memento Black onto a small Whisper White Stitched Rectangle die-cut and popped it up. It's decorated with a simple Linen Thread bow, attached with a Glue Dot. Adorable!
