ODBD - Sets


DelightfulDecorationsWMI started by stamping the pine from Sacred Season on one of the beautiful pieces from Christmas Collection 2015, inking only the pine boughs and using my MISTI to randomly stamp in Forest Moss. I then colored with Copics and stamped the boughs again with Jet Black.

I stamped Belles Vignes in embossing ink and heat set white embossing powder. Frayed Burlap was sponged around the edges.

Delightful Decorations stamps and die were used for the ornament, stamped with Festive Berries and Forest Moss, sponged again with Frayed Burlap.
Leafy Edged Borders gave me my pretty edge, ending with a healthy spritzing of Glimmer Mist over the entire card!


My next card features Christmas Carols and Delightful Decorations die.

I used the MISTI to stamp the verse in Fired Brick and Jet Black, then embossed only with Daisy Chain Background die.

I used some more of that beautiful Christmas Collection 2015, for the Pennants die and the ornament, along with Leafy Edged Borders die, and Fancy Foliage die.
