All is Merry and Bright Card

I hope you all had a chance to preview all the new dies from the "Charming Christmas Collection" by Becca Feeken last week.  We all had such a wonderful time sharing our fun ideas with all of you and now it's time for us to share even more ideas to create with them in the weeks ahead.  

Today i picked another of my favorite dies called "Charming Etched Boughs" and it's a beauty.  I chose to make a double layered frame on the front of my card in a beautiful green foiled paper set off by white in the opposite direction.  This gave it a pretty lacy feel and really made the sentiment pop.  I love that this die is so delicate and it cuts like butter so that is really nice for doing lots of cards.  It was fun to add a beautiful poinsettia and rhinestones in red to make it really festive.

Behind my dies i used my favorite "Hemstitch Squares" die to give the lacy dies something to balance on the base and new paper from Ruby Rock-it that you can get in the Spotlight stores if you are across the pond in Australia.  It's a beautiful set and really makes the dies look amazing.!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and also Congratulations to all the winners on the hop!  It was so nice to read all the wonderful comments from all of you!  

Have a very wonderful weekend,

Introducing Amazing Paper Grace - A Charming Christmas | Blog Hop

Tis the season to be jolly!  Even though it is only August, Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye.  I'm sure you are already listing out all the cards and gifts you're gonna make, right?  This year Becca of Amazing Paper Grace has designed a Christmas Collection - A Charming Christmas - for Spellbinders and we have a hop today to show you all the goodies and things we've made.  You can see the entire collection -----> HERE.

About A Charming Christmas Collection
Sweet little charms are so fun to play with, they can be dangled off of gifts, dangled off of cards and used in 3D Projects - they are just like the icing on the cake.  You will see that the "holiday" part of most of the sets in this collection have a Charm to personalize them - they are sized the same so you can mix and match them through your projects!  Here's the big deal: Outside of the charms and embellishments you add to make these dies Christmas, separately they can be used all year-round!! Yep, we're all budget shoppers too and want to get the most use out of a die!

Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  Don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments - one from each blog. The prize details are at the bottom of my post.  So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:

My Projects Today:

First up is the Charming Snowflake Doily die set

First i want to say i love snowflake anything and this die really is unique in that it also has my second love and that is hearts.  For my card i really wanted to knock it out of the park so i used 3 different kinds of silver papers to create layers and then i offset them to show off each layer.

For my card base i used my favorite backround die hemstitch squares in a subtle grey with blue and silver and added a thin silk ribbon to make it even more festive.  And it was so easy to create too.  You also get 2 adorable charms in this set so i went ahead and used them with my next project that i am sharing with you today.

Second up is the Charming Christmas Words die set

 You get 3 sentiments in each set and i used them in bands to create messages on my candy jars and for my card above and below.  You can interchange the outside borders too so these would be great for candles and anything else you want to do in a band type form.

Of course i had to share the top of my hohoho jar... These snowflake dies are amazing!!

And these are my charms included with my snowflake die.  They are so cute..... I would love to make a charm bracelet with all of them!!  Maybe that will be another post soon :)

And wait-- we even have brand new stamps this collection that are perfect for on the front or inside of your cards and also for the other cute dies you will get to see today on our hop....

Aren't these so pretty.  I stamped one out in silver but i can't decide since they are all cute!!

And that's my share today so be sure and hop to all the other girls blogs on the team at the bottom and share a little love and a chance to win.

Happy Wednesday ..... Teresa
