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!

What a great idea to show how you can use Bountiful Branch stamp set to create a summer theme! I think versatility in stamps is such an important thing to think about when I am purchasing. I’ve just come to that point not long ago & wish I’d been more choosey that way in the past. Your layout is just lovely.

It’s a wonderful release, I love them all. I do love the Branch Set and the Poinsettia Set the best.

Lee September 13, 2018 - 12:02 pm

That was beautiful to watch! I think the berry branch stamp is fabulous but so see you test it in the corner, then do all the steps and have it looks so spectacular — excellent for learning and such a good eye you have.

Michelle Hackett September 13, 2018 - 12:11 pm

I just love how the Altenew florals always look so really. The layering stamps in this release are so stunning. Im really looking forward to adding some to my stash of holiday stamps. All of these designs were lovely.

Annalisa September 13, 2018 - 5:46 pm

I’m surprised at how much I enjoy the non-traditional palette of blues and yellows for your cards. And I very much enjoyed watching you put together your scrapbook layout. I think my favorite set is the bountiful boughs, but it might be the Starry Nights one. They both are very appealing to me. Thanks for sharing all these great ideas with us!
