Christmas Wreaths

Hi Everyone,
I thought you would like to see what you can do with the new Spellbinders Build a Wreath die set

This is a beautiful die set and makes fantastic dimensional wreaths for your cards and projects.

The main die cuts out the wreath base, and the smaller dies cut out branches which are inserted into pre-cut slots in the wreath base. And of course there is the beautiful bow which can be cut in any colour from a range of materials.

Here are a couple of samples using this fantastic set -

For this card, I cut the wreath from Kraft cardstock and blended some Walnut Stain distress ink to add more dimension to the branches. The sentiment is from the Crimson Cloud Elegant Stag and Sentiments stamp set

The wreath on the second card

is made from white card stock, coloured with Distress Stains.

To mount the wreath, I used a sheet of the Crimson Cloud Wood Veneer

I hope you like these samples and are beginning to feel a little of the Christmas spirit??

Christmas Inspiration from the Design Team

This month the design team have been crafting up a storm with the new Crimson Cloud Christmas stamp sets.

The first set of samples are very traditional using the classic green and red theme.

Cheremane starts us off using the Pine Boughs and Fir Cones stamp set

and created a fabulous background for her card

Debs really had fun with the Mistletoe stamp set

and cleverly inked her mistletoe stamp in two colours to create her bow in red:

Linda also used the Mistletoe stamp set to for her card

She stamped the main image in green, then restamped the bow in red on a separate piece of card and cut it out to add dimension.

Sandra was experimenting with the new Holly Wreath  4 step stamp set

and created this beautiful hanging wreath card

Lisa has been thinking out of the box again with the Noel Bells stamp set

 and created her own Christmas tree ornament

I hope you have fun with these new stamp sets and are inspired by the girls' creativity!
