Welcome back for day 3 of our Christmas Release blog hop. If you missed the beginning (or are looking for the Flash Diecut Linky Party) you can find day 1 here. Remember to leave comments here and over at the STAMPlorations blog for your chance at some awesome prizes.
Today we are introducing some wonderful word dies, just perfect for creating Christmas projects. I love these things. Again today, I kept my projects simple and easy to recreate. I pulled out a couple STAMPlorations stamp sets. And I used up some PP stash! Sound good? Let's have a look.
Use fun color combo PP with a cute stamp for a fun feel...
|using Santa is Here|
Use traditional colors (red, gold or green) with more traditional stamped images for a more serious feel...
|using Christmas Bells, Sentiment Builders: Christmas & New Year and Oh Christmas Tree|
Take it all up a notch by using gold pigment ink and gold CS for a more elegant feel ...
|using Born to Roam and stars from the new Christmas Reindeer|
Can you imagine how quick and easy the above designs would be to reproduce with a MISTI?!?!?!?! The most time consuming part is adding glue to the die cuts! TIP: add enamel dots OR some twine along the top edge OR dry emboss a frame into the cardbase if you want to add "something more" to the design.
The next card is a little bit more time consuming, but perfect for those friends who don't celebrate Christmas. I used the die to cut a foam stamp from craft foam and then randomly stamped my BG with pigment ink!
|using Christmas Reindeer and Oh Christmas Tree|
And finally, please meet the new ATC/Gift Card Envelope die. I cut it from kraft and stamped it. Topped it off with some baker's twine and a tiny tag. This envie and its contents could be yours... just keep reading.

If you'd like to win the envie filled with the die cuts you see above (each word die I used in today's post cut 1x from PP and 1x from white) follow me on instagram and leave me a comment there telling me how you might use this envie die. I'll pick a winner from those comments on Sept 21!
Whew! That was a long one. But hop along. Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here. Thanks for coming by.
