CDD October Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to the CDD Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop. 
All stamps & Dies are in the CDD Shop and now available for purchase.

Here's what I've created for you...

I created this card using an image and sentiment from the "Polar Pals" stamp set.  I also used the coordinating SVG to cut out my image.  For my background layer, I blended 3 different distress inks and then used a silver gel pen to create snow.  I embossed my sentiment with white embossing powder.  I cut the background out with a die from the "Fancy Frame Dies".  I created my snow using the "Outdoor Landscape Dies"  and the hearts are from "Pocket Pieces Hi Dies".

For my second card, I again used a sentiment and image from the "Polar Pals" stamp set and the coordinating SVG file for my bear.  For my background layer I cut 2 pieces of paper out with the new "In Line" dies and layered them.  I used the "Tag Essentials Die" set to create a background for my sentiment.  I also used the free banner die for this release and cut out some litter red paper to place on the side of my card.  Finally I adhered some of the "Merry Mix Sequins" to finish off my card.

Here are the specials for this release:
