I love how versatile this bundle is. I LOVE the tree dies and the BEAUTIFUL greetings. You can do so much with this bundle and I know that you'll see a lot of creative ideas on today's hop.

For today's hop, I created a little wreath ornament. I designed it to be given on it's own or on top of a present. I stamped the tag with the "Deck the Halls" greeting, which coordinates perfectly since I'm giving them a decoration.

I made my wreath from 2 Boxwood Wreath Embellishments. To do this, I basically unravelled them and then twisted them back together. The original Boxwood WreathEmbellishments are circled twice, but I only made one circle, allowing my wreath to be bigger. I used linen thread as a "garland" and then adhered the beautiful leaf and holly images from the stamp set. Thank Goodness there are coordinating dies to cut them out! I stamped my leaves in Garden Green and Old Olive ink onto Old Olive cardstock.

When I first got this bundle I sat down and just played. You know... take some scrap paper, cut out the dies, see what they look like, stamp around them... etc. Well in this process, I ended up die cutting some Soft Sky trees, and for some reason, I really liked them... So I went with it and this is what I came up with.

My colour combo is Soft Sky, Real Red, Very Vanilla and Gold.

I repeatedly stamped the "Peace on Earth" greeting in the background with Versamark Ink.

For my trees: I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen (globbed on a whole bunch of it and then spread it around with a paint brush)and Dazzling Diamonds.

Thanks for hopping in. I hope you like what I've done with this new bundle. Up Next is the Talented Mercedes Weber. Enjoy the rest of the hop!
