Be sure to check out each stop in today's blog hop for fun, inspiration, and a chance to win some of the new release products! The next stop on the hop is: Rosemary Dennis!
My first card uses the new Layered Poinsettia stencil. This is a two pack of stencils. The first layer creates the flowers and then the second layer adds the detail and the leaves. I did do some simple masking on the second layer so my colors didn't overlap. Next, I added a few gold and white splatters to my panel and set it aside to dry.
Lastly, I used the new Merry Christmas Duo set for my sentiment. I love the big bold lettering on this sentiment!! It is also includes smaller companion and stand alone sentiments. I know it is a set I will use often this Christmas season.
My next card uses the Snowy Pines Trees stencil to create my background. This is such a fun but subtle background. I love that it isn't overpowering but adds a nice amount of detail to you background.
I once again used the Merry Christmas Duo set for my sentiment. I then tucked in a few branches that were die cut with the Layered Winter Bird dies. Lastly, I added a few ornaments that I die cut with the Small Ornaments die set.
For my last card, I used the new Dashed Snowflake cover panel to create my background. I then used the large Layered Ornament die to create my focal image. I love all of the detail and layers that this die includes. Next, I tucked in a few branches that I die cut with the Layered Winter Bird die and then added my sentiment that was stamped with the Merry Christmas Duo set.
