Pretty Trees with GI

Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

It's my day to post on the Great Impression Stamps Blog once again!

When I seen the new G509 Patterned Trees, I knew I had to have it!
What  a pretty stamp!
I thought it would be fun to paper piece the trees together to make them more 3 dimensional!

At a straight on glance you can really see the sparkle I added to the trees:


I also used the C409 Merry Christmas sentiment to finish off my card!

And a close-up of the trees:
It was so fun, the kids helped me pick out the papers to use for the trees and then when I added the sparkle, they were so amazed!! :)  Oh the little things!

WHW with IBS

Happy Wednesday Inspired By Stamping Friends!!

It's Whoo Hoo Wednesday!!

It's my turn to share another tutorial on the Inspired By Stamping Blog!
This time I decided to do something fun with one of IBS's die sets!
Not sure what to call it other than...."Bigger Die Cuts" technique!

You can check out the tutorial here.

Here's the card I created:
So fun and festive for the Holiday's!!
I used the Fancy Label Dies 1 to create the card base!
The larger sentiment is from the Big Holidays set! Which is stamped on a die cut from the Fancy Label 3 Die set.

All the stamped snowflakes are from various sets!  Which include Winter WonderlandDiamondsElegant Christmas Sentimentsand December 25th Labels!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!

Christmas Trees with IBS

Happy Sunday Stamping Friends!!

I have two cards to share with you today using some Inspired By Stamping products!!

The newly released Build A Stocking set has some fun elements in it to use not only with the stocking, but also alone!

I love the cute little tree in the set, so I decided to create these two fun cards:

Here's a close-up of both of them:
I added rhinestones to the middle tree of this one!

So elegant!!

The beautiful sentiments used on both of these is from the Elegant Christmas Greetings set!

Love the fun colors I used on these cards!
