Hello Members and Friends,
The most wonderful time of the year is coming so today I'd like to share some Christmas samples with you. I know you're thinking how can "they" come up with new dies and stamps for Christmas every year, but "they" do! Here are some samples for you to consider.
Deer – Penny Black die Together; Impression Obsession dies Rectangle Frame 6 in 1 and Manger small (star); design inspired by Kitty Caracciolo
Manger – Impression Obsession dies Rectangle Frame 6 in 1, Manger small and Shepherds; design inspired by Kitty Caracciolo
For both these cards I used the Impression Obsession 6-in-1-Rectangle Frame die that cuts 6 frames at once. These are really easy cards and could easily be mass produced. Just cut, glue or pop up with foam tape.
Fence Merry Christmas – Taylored Expressions dies Iron Fence and Gate, Rolling Hills, Holiday Arbor Accessories and Frame in Frame; Impression Obsession die Holiday Edgers Top; Memory Box die Puffy Clouds; design inspired by Taylor VanBruggen
I love the new dies from Taylored Expressions. The snow on top of the garlands is part of the Holiday Arbor set. To accent the wreath I added tiny red crystals using the Embellie Gellie for perfect placement. The Impression Obsession Holiday Edgers works beautifully with the TE Frame in Frame to add the perfect sentiment.
Holiday Scene – Taylored Expressions dies Iron Fence and Gate, Holiday Arbor Accessories, Rolling Hills, Little Bits Snowman and Snowflake Confetti; Lawn Fawn die Let it Snow; design inspired by Kerri Michaud
Same fence as the card above but a new look when it's cut from white. Love the little red bows. The lampost is part of the Holiday Arbor set too!
Red or black? Both look festive! These cards use the same TE die (Door to Door) that I featured here for fall. The new Door-to-Door Winter Decor die set lets you add snow to the top of the door and the steps. The set also includes a new topiary set complete with the ornament on top. The TE brick embossing folder makes a perfect background.
Red Door – Taylored Expressions dies Door to Door, Door to Door Décor, Door to Door Winter Décor and Little Bits Snowflake Confetti; TE embossing folder Brick; TE stamp set Rejoice; design inspired by Pam Sparks; Black Door – Taylored Expressions dies Door to Door, Door to Door Décor and Door to Door Winter Décor; TE embossing folder Brick; TE stamp set Rejoice; design inspired by Melody Rupple
Lampost – Taylored Expressions die Holiday Arbor Accessories; TE paper pad Christmas; Penny Black stamp set Joy Filled; design inspired by Courtney Kelly
For this card I used paper from the new Christmas paper pad from TE and the lampost and wreath from the Holiday Arbor set. I die cut the wreath from dotted paper (older TE paper pad) and accented the dots on the wreath with glossy accents.
Curved Merry Christmas – Memory Box dies Curved Merry Christmas, Beaded Background and Frosted Spruce Tree; Impression Obsession die Deer set of 2 small; design inspired by Pam Sparks
For this card I cut the Beaded Background from blue cardstock then cut the Curved Merry Christmas from white and layered it over the blue background. Adding the tree and the deer complete the card. Word to the wise: keep the tiny piece of white that cuts out of the "y" and glue it back in -- it will look better!
Whirl Wreath – Penny Black die Whirl Wreath; Penny Black clear stamp set Season’s Gifts; design inspired by Birgit Edblom
This Whirl Wreath is so beautiful. I cut the wreath from 2 shades kraft/beige to add depth and embellished it with gold pearls. The red bow is part of the die set.
Poinsettia – Penny Black die Joyful; Penny Black clear stamp set Joy Filled; Snowflake – Penny Black die Crystal Trio; Penny Black clear stamp set Joy Filled; both cards' design inspired by Heather Hoffman
2 very pretty simple cards. On both cards I cut multiple dies and stacked them for a more impactful look.
Peace – Penny Black clear stamp set Joy Filled; Taylored Expressions die Peek-a-Boo Circles; Around Town Shaker – Penny Black die Around Town; Spellbinders die Classic Circles; Impression Obsession Border die; clear stamp set Joy Filled; Memory Box border die (retired); design inspired by Torico
Merry – Memory Box dies Woodland Oval Frame and Classic Alphabet U/C; Poppy die Cheery Cardinals; design inspired by Jean Okimoto
The Woodland Oval can be used for any season -- so pretty especially with the red cardinals!
