Hi Crafty Friends,
Today I am sharing three projects I created using new stamps and dies from Divinity Designs October Release. For more inspiration using the September Release and to see the other designers projects, be sure to visit the Divinity Designs Blog.
There are only 86 days until Christmas, so this month the Divinity Designs release is all about Christmas!!!! There are some amazing new stamps, dies and papers being released and I am excited to share seven of those new products with you today.
The first thing I pulled out to play with from this release is the Christmas Tree Table Top Décor dies ... this is so much fun and perfect for Christmas holiday decorations. This Christmas tree stands 10 1/2 inches with the star in place.
You need to die cut 4 to 6 Christmas tree to create this decoration. The die was a little bigger than I expected, so I was limited in what green cardstock I had enough of so opted for this lighter green. After die cutting and embossing the tree I then used Eucalyptus Ink to add a little more detail to the edges.
This die set comes with the ornaments & lights to decorate the tree, but Divinity Designs has also released a die set with just these in the die set in case you want an additional set to make decorating the tree a little quicker.
The Christmas Tree stands on a skirt which was created using the Christmas Skirt die.
No Christmas tree is complete without presents right!!!! so I added some presents using the smaller dies from both the Squares and Rectangles die sets. To create the presents, I used the dies to die cut the patterned paper and then layered this onto a piece of cardstock that has a tab at the base, folded the tab, so the present stands up. I left mine freestanding, but you could also adhere everything to the base. I added the bows which are from the new Treat Tower die set.
Here is a close up of the Christmas Tree skirt ... this is absolutely beautiful with wonderful embossed features. This die is 6 inches in diameter. After die cutting and embossing this die, I then adhered it to white cardstock and carefully trimmed around the edge.
For my second project for today's release I created a Half-Shutter card using the Half Shutter Card with Layers die set.
On the right hand panel I used the ornament from the Deer Ornament Stamp/Die Duos set. I gold embossed the ornament and then die cut the ornament using the coordinating circle die.
I used the pine branches from the Pinecone & Pine Branches die set at the top of the ornament to resemble a Christmas tree.
I used one of the sentiments from the stamp set on the centre panel.
For the front panel I used the Merry Christmas die set which I die cut from Gold Cardstock. I layered this sentiment using the Ovals and Scalloped Ovals die sets.
I added more pine branches to the left hand side of the card, so that when the card is closed it looks like a Christmas tree.
On the lower left hand side of the card I added a deer and tree which are from the Trees & Deer die set which is an older die set, but works perfectly with many of the products being released this month.
The patterned paper used on this card uses the new Rustic Christmas Paper Pad.
For my final project for today, I created a Center Step Card using the Center Step with Layers die set.
The three panels at the top of the card were die cut using another of the papers from the Rustic Christmas Paper Pad.
Along the bottom of the card I added two layers of snow using the Curvy Slopes die set, another older die set.
To decorate the front of the card, I used the Pickup Truck die set, adding a tree to the back of the truck.
The trees and deer are again from the Trees & Deer die set.
I added the star from the Christmas Tree Table Top Décor die set to the top right hand side of the card.
The "Peace" sentiment is from the Deer Ornament Stamp/Die Duos set which was die cut using the Sentiment Strips die set.
For the inside of my card, I added snow, a tree and dies along the bottom of the card.
I added the "Merry Christmas" sentiment to the top part of the card which is the new Merry Christmas die set.
