Stamps and Smiles - Preview Day 4

Hi Friends and Welcome to Day 4 of the Stamps and Smiles Fall/Winter Release! Today the DT has a fun sketch challenge to share with you over at the Stamps and Smiles Blog! We'd love for you to join us so head on over and check it out!

Today's featured stamp set is Trim a Tree! This set is super duper cute! In my samples I have used it to make an elegant card, and also a cute card, so whatever direction you would like to go with this set it is that versatile!

My first card I stamped my tree on a labels 1 nestie and then used Christmas Green and Russet Red flower soft. Background is created with the Fleur De Lis pendant die, and the corners are used the small die in the set and cutting them in half.

My second sample is using the Do Not Open Until Christmas sentiment stamp and the different ornament stamps from the Trim A Tree set! The ornaments were colored with my Spica Gold, Red, and Green pens for that glittery look! I decided to make little tags that look like they are hanging on a tree branch. I popped each ornament off of the tag with a glue dot. Used my Bow Easy again to make the gorgeous bow!
