Today we are previewing two new sets - 2011 Holiday Ornaments (that JUST so happen to fit the new Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornament dies!!) as well as a jolly set called Santa's Coming to Town
I had so much fun creating with these stamps that I made 3 cards!
For my first card - I stamped three of the smaller ornaments as if they were hanging from this lovely pine branch - don't you love the wonderful designs on them?? I was still in the Nordic mood from yesterday (!) so I used the Good Jul sentiment from Nordic Winter. The pine boughs are from Festive Foliage. I gold embossed the tops and strings of the ornaments which are separate stamps. I masked the red ornament in order to stamp the string on the blue ornament "behind" the red one.
2011 Heirloom Ornament die (although it would also be very easy to cut this out by hand.) Then I just looped a gold cord through a hole in the top and let it drape down. I thought this paper looked like a wall in a cozy parlor!
The sentiment is from a set from last month's release - A Cottage Christmas.Santa's Coming to Town for my last card - a little more playful and fun! I stamped the background with two stamps from this set - using one of them again over stamping the Santa silhouette. I created his pipe smoke with a little steam stamp from Afternoon Tea! The little ornament with the deer is from 2011 Holiday Ornaments and I cut it with the smallest 2011 Heirloom Ornament Die. I made a paper rosette out of dotted red paper to layer my Santa silhouette on.
Now - who's coming with me to see what the other DT have to inspire us today??! Here are their links:
