Today I’ve used new Christmas Tree die.


The words are formed on one die so it’s super easy to die-cut the sentiment all at once or, once die-cut, the words can be used individually. So versatile! I die-cut the sentiment from green card stock, taking care to save the tiny pieces from inside the letters so they could be adhered in the open spaces over the patterned paper below.

To create a glittery gold star, I used new 1″ gold glitter tape from Copic. (I’ll focus more on that soon.) Super easy! The star and pot were raised on Kool Tak clear foam squares for a bit of added dimension.


Be sure to hop along and comment with the rest of the DT to increase your chances of winning one of the four $25 gift codes!  Pamela is taking a hiatus for our November and December releases.  She will pick back up with our January release.  The very talented and clever Jill Hawkins will be her temporary replacement.

Thanks for visiting!  Good luck, and happy hopping!  🙂
