For my first card, I'm featuring All The Christmas You'll Ever Need 2 Stamp Set and the Dual Stitched Christmas Tree Dies.
My next creation is going to stay right in this spot on my end table through Christmas. I love how it turned out. I created this frame using the Dual Stitched Christmas Tree Dies and the Filled Christmas Tree Stamps.
I had all kinds of fabric scraps hanging around my desk area after making some hoop art. I looked at it and got to thinking about making a fun framed piece for my Christmas decor. I started by attaching a gray polkadot fabric piece to a piece of foam board and sliding that into the frame. Next I used the Dual Stitched Christmas Tree Dies to cut trees from some fun and rustic Christmas papers. I stuck these onto my framed fabric piece using foam tape to add dimension. I wanted to add a little more interest to the center chalkboard tree by stamping and embossing it with the Filled Christmas Tree Stamps. Now I had two trees with layers but my final tree needed something. A red button with some twine was just right to finish it off. I liked my creation but felt it needed just a little something to draw your eye directly to the trees. So, I added some black jute mesh on the top and bottom to frame my image even more. Here's a side shot to show you the dimension:
My final card for this release uses the 'Tis the Season Stamp Set and a whole lot of layers!
When I saw this stamp set, I had this crazy idea of piecing it with embossing and layers of gray. So, I grabbed all my gray cardstock and started stamping and embossing the 'Tis the Season Stamp Set over and over. Then I started picking which layers would be which shade of gray and got to cutting and layering. Some layers I popped with foam tape and some I just layered with adhesive. When I had the banner and everything all layered, I hoped it would be finished but it felt like it needed a little something more especially being a Christmas card. So, I added a chunk of glitter paper but I still didn't like it so I added a bit of red metallic with the Stitched Scallop Border Die. Finally, I added a stripe of dark gray just to finish it off. Then I had to stop! Ha ha! Here's a closer look:
