Merry Christmas with Circle Dies

Look Ma, no stamps! That's right! I didn't use a single stamp on today's card. That doesn't happen too often. This week, the Stampendous team is sharing creations that are "To Die For," that is, projects that use some of their wonderful dies. My card today is easy to create, and you have the ability to get a lot of cards out of it once you're done die cutting. You can check out my full instructions below.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
CSD21: Christmas Bright
DCP1007: Build A Wreath Die Set
MPW811: Mixed Media White Cardstock

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Classic Cherry, Spanish Moss, Desert Cactus, Brown Eyes
Neenah: Desert Storm Cardstock
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner
Washi Tape (will not show)
Ranger: Walnut Stain Distress Ink

Directions:
1. Tape the circle dies from the Build a Wreath Set, spaced evenly apart, with washi tape.

2. Die cut the circle dies 1 time for each color, so in this case, 5 times. Be sure to keep the washi tape on the dies to ensure that the circles will all fit together later.

3. Separate all of the circles and reform them together, using each color only once per grouping.

4. Attach the circles together on the back with washi tape.

5. Cut one of the reformed circles in half.

6. Create the card base out of Desert Storm cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

7. Ink the edges in a circular motion with a foam dauber and Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

8. Die cut "Merry" out of Brown Eyes cardstock.

9. Die cut "Christmas" out of Spanish Moss cardstock.

10. Attach all layers with EZ Runner adhesive.

That's it for me today. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see what the rest of the team has been die cutting. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
