STAMPlorations are doing a Christmas in August Release. They are releaasing 6 stamp sets and 8 CUTplorations dies and, of course, are celebrating in style with a Blog Hop. Welcome to Day 5!
Today my teamies and I are showcasing the 8 new CUTplorations Dies of which I personaaly am showcasing 4. First up is a little lantern using the Christmas Icons - Christmas Angel die. Here it is:
I used my handmade box template from my Spotlight Post here and tuned it into a lantern by die-cutting the angel and backing the negative with vellum after embossing the panels with the Oh, My Stars! ARTplorations Stencil. To finish I added a touch of gilding wax and Stickles.
Next up is a card using the beautiful Merry Christmas Word Art Die ...
I clear embossed the poinsettia from the Christmas Flower set, cut the sentiment twice from white card, layered as seen and finished off with a couple of clear gems.
Next up is a shaker card using the Christmas Bauble #2 Layering Die ...
I first cut the doodled bauble and then the solid one,attached acetate to the back and pieced them in. I used glass glitter to add to my shaker element and finished off with a die-cut Merry Christmas and a little matching bow.
Next up are three cards using the super gorgeous Christmas Icons - Christmas Tree #2 die ...
I simply assembled all the cut out bits on a sponged background, added a sentiment from the Holiday Artsy set, a doodled line and gems to finish.
This card was made by simply cutting the tree into the base card finishing offwith gems and peel-off sentiment.
My last card turns the tree into a shaker card using silver glass glitter and a peel-off sentiment.
That's all my projects for today.
