The Colorful Seasons Bundle is definitely one of my favorite things from the Annual Catalog. I decided to use the winter themed die to create an unusual combination of snowflakes using Washi tape. Most people really don't know what to do with Washi tape other than to hold dies in place on your big shot. It really can be a versatile element in scrapbooking and card making. It is a simple way to add pattern and color. But did you know that you can stick it down to a piece of whisper white card stock in any pattern you like, and then place your die over it and cut it on the big shot?
The traditional colors of the Be Merry DSP by Stampin' UP add to the Christmas cheer of the tag. To get the layered look of the tag, I used the Lots of Labels framelits. Santa was cut out with the smaller size one, the DSP was the next largest and finally, the largest was cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock. I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and cut it out with the smallest of the framelits and then sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink.
Beautiful Bouquet Bundle I designed this card for my friend's birthday and had a lot of fun combining the In Color's from the annual catalog and the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle elements. I used a Basic Black card base and framed the bouquet with Berry Burst card stock. It was then set on a Whisper White ruffled background.
