After I made yesterday’s card by making a tag out of the Christmas tree, I wanted to make an actual tag out of the Christmas tree. 🙂 I watercolored the Filled Christmas Tree Stamp and then stamped the sentiment over top using one from the All You’ll Ever Need 2 Set. I hole punched the top and accented the card with the “wish” die from the Brush Script Christmas Die Set and some twine and ribbon. I adore how it turned out!! 🙂

For this super simple wreath card, I stamped a bunch of trees in different colors on a paper and then die cut the wreath out of it using the Baubled Wreath Die. I strung some ribbon through the holes and created a sentiment using the Tis The Season Stamp Set… Can you tell I love that banner yet?! 😉

The whole wreath is adhered using dimensional adhesive so it looks like it’s floating.

So when I saw the Merry Christmas Word Die, I really wanted to use it as a mask!! Unfortunately, it doesn’t photograph too well haha. Basically I masked the words by stamping over top of them with darker colors and then pulled the words off. It turned out SO COOL in person. It looks a little too light in these photos though. Apologies my friends! I totally recommend trying this out!!

Here are all the new products from this month’s release:

    Love the idea of stamping then die cutting the frame for the bauble wreath. It is a lovely effect.

    The way you think is so refreshing! I love that you resisted putting something INSIDE of each of the baubles in that wreath. I also love that you used a word die to create negative space rather that having it dimensionally pop out! Wonderful! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Wow!! your creativity is just amazing – I love the colors on your bauble wreath and the masked sentiment card sounds very intriguing!
