Use Those Dies

It is time once again for the weekly Inky Impressions challenge. This week we are asking that you pull out those pretty dies or punches and use them on your card. Remember, you do not have to use an Inky Impressions stamp, but if you do, you get more chances to win our wonderful prizes.

This week I've pulled out a sweet digital stamp that I've used before. I really like this little girl laden with Christmas packages. This is "Nickie's Winter Wishes" and she can be found in the Inky store HERE. After printing the image onto X-Press It brand card and coloring it with my Copic markers, I used three different elements from Spellbinder's Resplendent Rectangles, some Christmas DP and traditional red and green card to create my sweet card.

I started with a 5 x 7" white base which I layered with the green card. I put the DP on top of that and then began layering my die cuts. I thought the cut outs on the corners of the green piece resembled holly leaves, so I added a red glittery gem to represent a berry. I then topped off my card with the pretty gold and ecru ribbon.

We'd like to see what you do with your dies/punches, so please join us this week in our weekly challenge. You can find the details at the Inky Impressions blog. Also, take a few minutes to see the lovlies the DT have made for you this week.

  10. ahhh, such a lovely Christmas card Jenee and your attention to detail is awesome. I thought I was looking at a special Christmas die with holly leaf corners until I enlarged your photograph and read on in your post - it' always amazes me just how much a relatively little embellishment can give such big impression. I love the combination of dies that you have used to create the frame round your very cute image. Good luck in our challenge this week.Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
