Die-Versions + Great Impressions: A Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Die Versions + Great Impressions designers' blog hop! We've got both talented teams hopping today with a chance to win prizes from both of these craft suppliers! Our theme for this hop is "Tis the Season" so get ready to see some beautiful holiday creations! You should have arrived here from Irit Shalom's blog. If you haven't and would like to hop with us, please go back to the Die Versions blog to see the entire hop list and to start at the beginning for the maximum chances to win!

Here is my Christmas project!



I started by cutting a box using my Silhouette Cameo and then used a couple of gorgeous Die-Versions dies and a beautiful Great Impressions stamp to create a gift set.

I stamped my sentiment which is called Old World Merry Christmas (E739) in Memento Black so that I could color it with Copics. I trimmed it out and then die cut the beautiful Whispers-Poinsettia Flourish. For the middle flower I die cut just the flower several times and layered them together attaching them with a jeweled brad. I added some clear rhinestones for some extra sparkle.

For my border all around the box I die cut the lovely Whispers-Lacey Dots. I love  how long this die is!

For my matching card I used all the same elements in a bit of a different way. I created a layered flower again by die cutting just the flower part several times. I then cut the rest of the Poinsettia Flourish die out of green cardstock and selectively cut the sections I wanted to frame my flower. I stamped the Old World Merry Christmas sentiment (E739) and colored it with Copics. I then die cut 2 Lacey Dots borders and layered them on top of each other, added some stitching and a few rhinestones to finish. I hope you like my gift ensemble!
Thanks for stopping by today! Your next stop in the hop is Lisa Fish's blog! We hope you're inspired all along the way! Grab all the goodies used from the Great Impressions and Die Versions stores!
