I am always so excited to see the new Christmas paper each year, so I chose to use the Level 1 "Mistletoe" kit and see what I could come up with. While I still have tons of product left, this is what I have created so far:
This first card is 6 X 6 and uses one of the Level 1 pages cut into fourths, cranberry cs, several Mistletoe My Stickease, some of our twill ribbon sewn with cranberry embroidry thread and "scrunched" up to make the cute border. The 2nd picture is in detail.
Next I took the B & T from the Mistletoe level 1 pack and mounted it on chipboard strips to give it some dimension and used our new colored sparkles and a dimensional element star inked in honey and then a My Stickease and some natural hemp finish this card off.
The next was a happy accident as I had another card almost finished and "messed" it up by having dirty fingers. I scrapped the other card that had three ornaments and then designed a new single ornament. I like the clean and simple look much better! I still managed to get some errant ink on this card, but still I think it looks pretty good!
Next I tried to really get creative and start with a blank card...(very scary) I used My Stickease borders and banners, chalked some clouds with a hand cut template and created mounds of snow with a piece of B & T from the level 1 Misletoe kit and then stamped the awesome shadow scenes from another new stamp set in the Idea Book. All stamp sets are new and I will be happy to share with anyone if they can't figure out which set it comes from : )
Another new stamp set contains this cute little tree. Stamped in New England Ivy, cut out and embellished with our new teeny tiny sparkles in RED! The Happy Holidays is from the same stamp set as the tree and the paper it is stamped out of is some border from a pre-printed portion of a level 1 Mistletoe sheet.
Last but not least are two cute and very simple tags that I created with a single image from the Mistletoe My Stickease sheet. Easy Peesy!
Thats all for now....it's time to head on over to Amy Schultz's Blog for your next creative discovery! Have fun, see you on September 1st for the CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
