Let's get to the projects, shall we???
For my first project, I used the new Bokeh Dots, Merry & Bright stamps, the new (and coolest) stag die and words dies from Merry and Bright! The little hearts are from the Home & Hearth die set. I used vellum to make the bokeh dots a little more subtle and then stamped the hearts on the vellum!
(Bokeh Dots, Merry & Bright stamp set, Merry & Bright dies, Stag die, Home & Hearth dies, Ink, Gold Foil Paper, sequins, glue dots)
Tis the Season is seriously one of the cutest stamp sets EVER! It just makes me HAPPY!
The Merry & Bright stamp set is a full of possibilities! I used stamped the string and sentiment and then went in and stamped and colored in the lightbulbs. Then, I added a white gel pen accent and coated the light bulbs with glossy accents.
Last project to share with you is my Zipper Panel die project, and I thought this was the PERFECT Christmas Tree ornament die. How fun is this to hide a gift card or moola in!?!? I used the new Home & Hearth dies to create a die cut scene and a Cozy Christmas sentiment which pairs perfectly!
Here's the inside. :)
Now for some fun to share... the sweet and extremely generous Ellen & Julie are offering up a prize!
Yes, I have a set of Merry & Bright to give away!
