Doesn't the Poppystamps Holly Outline Die in white cardstock look amazing over the bold alcohol ink background I created?

The Poppystamps Tiding With Joy Stamp Set is great because you can customize your sentiment with all the sayings and words in this set.

A Very Warm Christmas

Happy Holidays Poppy Peeps! I have a card for you today using some of the newest released dies, and a fun way to create just the right sized mantle garland for the new Whittle Fireplace.

I left all my Whittle die cuts white, and assembled the scene onto one of the new holiday papers included in the Dashing Holiday set. Love the bright crisp white against the holiday red print. But I wanted a holiday look to my mantle. Here's how I created my garland...

Poppy's Leafy Wreath die! It cuts out just the right size to assemble a garland for my mangle. I cut the die out of 3 shades of green, before adding tiny clear rhinestones to simulate holiday lights.

Here's a closeup of the garland. The mirror is the inner frame of a die set called Deco Cecil Frame. I cut the center from silver mirror card stock.

The stocking with mouse is popped up with foam.

I just love the Leafy Ornament Frame to round out my Christmas scene, and simply cut the ornament from the frame. Those darling corners are just the right touch of folksy glam to my Whittle Fireplace.

Have a wonderful week, and hope you enjoy this most blessed season!

Want to play? 

The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here.  The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.  You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image.   We ask that you link a maximum of  3 entries to each challenge.   You are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or sidebar!
