September 2018 Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to the September 2018 Holiday Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Paige Evans‘s blog, then you are right on track. The full blog hop list can be found at the end of this post.

I created several projects with the new products. My first one is a layout which doesn’t have a holiday theme to it. I wanted to show that some of the holiday stamps can be used for scrapbooking everyday moments. Using the same color combination, I created a couple of Christmas cards as well.



@lilitheeckelsFor my layout, I used the Bountiful Branch Stamp Set and used yellow, blue, and green shades to create a stamped background.

@lilitheeckelsI created some embellishment pieces using the Dot Labels Stamp and Die Set as well as the Circled Sentiments Stamp and Die Set. I used the same inks that I used for the branches. This keeps everything cohesive. For the title, I used the For All Seasons Stamp Set and paired it with a tiny bit of journaling. For the patterned paper, I used the paper pad from the Celebrate You Kit.

@lilitheeckelsYou can see how the layout came together in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.

For my cards I used:

@lilitheeckelsOn the first card, I embossed the tree from the Starry Night Stamp Set and added several rows of trees using the Creative Edges -Evergreen Die.

@lilitheeckelsFor the next card, I stamped three stockings using the Christmas Stockings Stamp Set and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

@lilitheeckelsHow cute are those stockings?! Even non-conventional colors work great with them!
