I created this light and airy Christmas card by first adding texture to the card base using the Lil Inker Designs Stitched Quatrefoil Cover Up Die. Next I added a piece of vellum with the “NOEL” (from the Filled Christmas Tree Stamps) stamped repeatedly across it in cream. I used my Tiny Attacher to adhere the vellum so it would flow at the bottom.

The main sentiment is from the All The Christmas You’ll Ever Need 2 set.

The card is finished off with some Natural Twine and red and white striped curling ribbon (from the Papertrey Ink Wonderland Kit).

Hey friends! It’s Day 4 of the Neat and Tangled November Release Week! Today I have a sweet project for you today along a similar theme as yesterdays. 😉

by Stephanie Gold for Neat and Tangled Warm Winters Joyful Sentiments

So you see now… I continued on with the black and gold color scheme for this card and I’m OBSESSED. This is the new Warm Winters Scene Die and it’s so dang cute. I cut the entire piece from black cardstock and popped out all of the pieces. Then I went through and made sure each house had all of the windows popped out as well and then I spray painted all the houses and trees gold.

by Stephanie Gold for Neat and Tangled Warm Winters Joyful Sentiments

I placed each piece back inside it’s original hole when mounting it to the card front. I love the contrast. 🙂 And then some twine and a timeless sentiment from Joyful Sentiments finishes the card off.

These Christmas cuties have one more friend as well who I didn’t end up fitting on the card. I decided to pop the friends up as the focal point for my card and leave the sentiment below, divided by red and white twine.

Welcome to November Release Week from Neat and Tangled!! We have some adorable products to share with you this week, starting with one of the cutestttttttt stamp sets!!!

by Stephanie Gold for Neat and Tangled november 2017 release

So although I only chose to use a few of the stamps on this card, there are SO many sweet images and sentiments in this set. The bottom of my card is a light row of trees in shades of grey and green that were created with the new Trees Duo Stencils.

by Stephanie Gold for Neat and Tangled november 2017 release

I accented all of the green trees and the holly berries with Wink of Stella for a little glitter action. The wreath is made with some garland I found in the dollar spot at Target.

Hello again! Today is the last day of what I lovingly call Papertrey’s “Inspiration Week” and we are talking about the new Cloche Quarters: Winter Fillers stamp set in addition to the Pen & Ink: Christmas set.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Cloche Quarters Winter Fillers Pen and Ink Christmas

For the Cloche Winter Fillers I immediately fell in love with these adorable ornaments!! They are soooooo cute!! I went with a blue/green color combination and stacked them high in a simple cloche case on a kraft background. Aren’t they beautiful?

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Cloche Quarters Winter Fillers Pen and Ink Christmas

Now onto the Pen & Ink: Christmas set which was majorly delayed (but Lizzie and I happened to snag a couple sample sets while we were filming the release party) so there probably won’t be much on these today. However, they are as beautiful as ever and I will forever buy anything that’s created in this font!! 🙂

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Cloche Quarters Winter Fillers Pen and Ink Christmas

I went with a festive, layered look for this card. The sentiment is stamped on vellum and accented with some of the papers from the Wonderland kit. I still managed to keep things airy even with the bold red in the flowers and ribbon and I just love how it turned out!

And of course that birch paper will always have a place in my heart so I had to put it right on top. 🙂
