Welcome back to Christmas in July! Just 2 days left after this….these non stop days of tutorials always seem like a great idea…until I am in the middle of them, lol.
Today in addition to the card being completely adorable…..I take a look at how once you get some Christmas supplies…how you can use them for totally different looks so you get the most bang for your buck!
Every catalog I seem to have what I call my “sleeper favorite”
It’s something that is usually part of something else. A ribbon tucked in a kit, a sentiment in a set – you know, something you didn’t notice when you actually bought whatever it was, but once you have it and started using it…love happens.
This catalog so far it is this Tree die. I bought the bundle – because I love the stamps and those realistic tree dies…in fact the first card I didn’t even USE this die. But now I have and am in love.
Here are the stamps and the other dies in the set – still love them….but this tree is different and has such fun potential.
A couple of days ago I used it with the Plaid Tidings and a country feel card. Same die -same pack of paper – change up the stamps…..
I grabbed Gnome For the Holidays and the FABULOUS RED VELVET PAPER that is also new to the mini and a whole new look was born.
I kept the Word Wishes dies for the greeting – they play so well against the Plaid Tidings paper. Once this theme week is over, you will see some of the autumn sides of the paper appear…and those dies include the word Thanksgiving! Yea!!
By the way – if you are wondering what my ‘sleeper favorite’ is from the new Annual Catalog? Right now it’s the tiny little paper flowers with the wood center seed bead that are part of the Boho Indigo kit! LOVE! So much so, that I have a free online class you can take with it!
