Sparkle of the Season multi-seasonal stamp set and dies


This week I used the new Stamp and Die Bundle 'Sparkle of the Season'.  This is a really great bundle that has elements to carry you through all the fall and winter holidays.  The die set is large with 3 different wreath dies and so many extras. 

Here I made three versions of a card with the same basic template.  I wanted to hit the three big holidays of the fall/winter season. 

I decided to try an even simpler version.  I used woodgrain papers from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for the background on all three, and then just added one of the three different wreath dies.  I think the swirl with the stars would also work for Christmas or even just a background for a birthday or congratulations or baby card.  The whole collection is very versatile. 

The die set has a lot of little extras such as the pumpkin, the bat, and the broom stick for Halloween.  There are extra leaves and holly and even holly berries.   You can even cut the leaves off of the fall wreath and use it as a background or layer with the pine wreath.

I made a lot of this version for a Demonstrator Card Swap that I participate in.   To make the wreath have two colors, I cut it out in Old Olive, then used a sponge to add Shaded Spruce to the pine needles. 

The background paper here is Heartwarming Hugs on the top and In Good Taste on the bottom.

The ribbon is from the Playful Pets ribbon combo pack.

On the fall version of the card  I cut the wreath from Kraft paper and sponged the leaves in Cajun Craze, Bumblebee and Pumpkin Pie.  I cut a few extra leaves from some scrap and placed them at the bottom of the wreath. The Fine Art ribbon is a fun sort of rustic linen with gold threading mixed in.  Once again I am using the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (I use this A Lot). The paper on the top is from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper. 

For the Halloween version I turned the template on it's side.  I cut the stary swirl from Silver Foil Paper and the bats from Black Glitter Paper. I sponged some Gorgeous Grape in the background and added some Grape colored bats as well. The paper on this card is from the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper Pack.

This card is so simple yet so pretty.  The rustic look gives it a warm feel. I made the wreath the same way as above, cutting the wreath out in Old Olive and sponging the pine needles in Shaded Spruce. 

And here is the fall version.  I embossed the sentiment in Copper Embossing Powder and added Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.
