Are you enjoying the NND holiday release so far? We've got two more amazing stamp and die sets to show you today! First up, Festive Forest!
As soon as I saw this set, I knew I wanted to try to put the trees together in a star shape! I stamped the different trees in a variety of green inks (using the lightest color first so I didn't contaminate my ink pads), then die cut them with the coordinating Festive Forest die. I loved how it looked offset just a bit, so I adhered the trees and trimmed the excess off.
The sentiment was heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and adhered across my tree star with foam tape. I placed just a few gold star sequins for a touch of shine!
Next is a card using Ornamental Newton & the coordinating dies.....but I didn't use Newton! What?!?!? I know, but when I saw that tiny Santa hat, I just HAD to hang it from the fun sentiment!
I made the Santa hat more like an enamel embellishment by coating it with Wink of Stella to make it sparkle, and then a double coating of Glossy Accents for loads of shine. To finish the card off, I made some hand drawn lines around the sentiment and added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins. This would be a super card to make in large quantities!
