Welcome to week eleven of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!
Stampin’ Up! have recently released six new dies that coordinate with existing stamp sets, so tonight my cards features the new Tree Trimming dies that coordinate with the Trimming the Trees stamp set.
You can purchase these dies during September, either as stand alone dies or as a bundle (10% off) with the Trimming the Trees stamp set.
I recently shared a more classical style of Christmas card that uses these Tree Trimming dies and the Trimming the Trees stamp set – here’s a photo of that card in case you missed it.
This week I’ve used the vibrant colours in the Celebrate Everything DSP to create two Christmas cards with a more modern style.
These cards show you just how versatile the Tree Trimming dies are – they are one of the few die sets that work equally as well with or without the coordinating stamp set.
I deliberately left the Christmas trees on both of my cards unstamped because the Basic White card stock showcases the the intricate die cut detail of the Tree Trimmings dies a lot better than a stamped image does.
The Granny Apple Green card features the bauble dies and the star dies, as well as the bead garland die. It’s really hard to photograph the stars are they are die cut in silver foil, whereas the baubles are die cut from Granny Apple Green cardstock.
My Polished Pink card uses the star dies as well as the tree basket die that is featured on both cards.
I love the sentiment dies included in the Tree Trimmings dies. I’ve used a different sentiment from the Trimming the Tree stamp set and a different sentiment die for each of my cards, however there are more sentiment dies and sentiments to choose from.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Caroline Manwaring – I can’t wait to see what Caroline has created today!
