I wish I could easily part with older stamp sets and dies, but I tend to hang on to everything I buy most of the time. Take for instance this tree. It was done with a Quickutz die (perhaps the first die I ever owned, gifted to me by my DIL) using kraft, gumball green and cherry cobbler red. There's a bell and a star in the set of dies, and I've always loved the way you can layer them with different colors. The woven strips of retired SU! Christmas dsp were trimmed on the ends with an old pair of scissors that look like a vintage photo edge. I used a MFT stitched circle die set to make the medallion layers, along with a SB scalloped die circle, and the Merry Christmas sentiment was done with a retired SU! stamp set; heat-embossed with gold ep on white. The final touch was to punch a star with a SU! mini punch from gold mirror cardstock for the top of the tree. I made several cards like this to use up those pretty strips of leftover dsp that I can't bear to throw away......I know - I'm a pathetic keeper of snippets :)
I'll share this over at the Snippets Playground week 255 where the only requirement is to use snippets. (check!)
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great week ahead.
