Hi there! It's one of my favorite times of the month. Release Week! Welcome to WPlus9 October 2013 Release Previews!!! Today we're featuring Woodland Wreaths + Coordinating Dies and Merry & Bright + Coordinating Dies.
The Woodland Wreaths is one of my favorite stamp sets for this release. It is absolutely beautiful!!!! I used the coordinating die cut for the different wreaths in the set. This one is my favorite among them. Doesn't it look so delicate? Gorgeous!
I don't like using the usual holiday colors. This is actually my go-to color combination for Christmas cards. I just hate using red. Not because of the color itself, but because it stains my stamps and it's soooo hard to remove. Then, when I want to use the same image on a much lighter color, I find that the red is still there and it blends in with the new lighter color that I want to use!!! And worse, it rubs off the red onto my other stamp pad!!! If there's a solution for this that I haven't heard about, please, please tell me.
For my second card, I used Merry & Bright. And again I used my favorite image from Woodland Wreaths. You will find that Merry & Bright has a lot of "accessories" that you will absolutely enjoy. :)
This candle/wreath combo has sooo many layers. I had to use glue to make sure that the little pieces would not fall out when it's mailed. But it's absolutely fun to put together! There are so many combinations you can do, not to mention colors you can use! I am totally going to enjoy making my Christmas cards this year! :)
There you go! I hope you enjoyed today's preview. Please come back tomorrow for more. And make sure to head on over to the other DT ladies blogs' for more inspiration. Thanks for stopping by today! I'll see you again tomorrow!
