This is my first play with the Merriest Tree’s stamp/die bundle from Stampin’ Up! and I am absolutely loving it! The dies are fantastic! This was my first go with this set but there is so much you can do with it!
Here’s why it’s a favourite. The dies coordinate with the Walk In The Forest Designer Series Paper Pack which is this season’s philanthropic give back from Stampin Up! The dies cut out the trees in the paper AND the new Bear punch cuts out the bears! I love it when I can get more use from something for my money. Also, £2.50 from every sale of these gorgeous papers goes to the Salvation Army!
Of course, the tree dies cut out the tree images in the stamp set too and there are 3 sizes of trees so you can stamp and die-cut three trees just from the large tree image!!
Merriest Tree’s Stampin’ Up!
I’m using the dies to cut out the trees from the Walk In The Forest papers for my first play. Add a little metallic gold card and cut out the garland (one cut), the star (there is a choice of stars), and the tree skirts.
Add in a partial tree from the edge of the paper – no waste, and a little simple stamping inside! This stamp is begging to be embossed on a die-cut tree, isn’t it… So many ideas with this set!
You can see what I’ve used to make this card here with links to my online shop.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my first play with the Merriest Trees. Check out the video. You will also see my epic fail at stamping a pink tree!! Oh dear! You can catch me live on my YouTube channel on Tuesdays at 1pm BST here. Do join me. I’d love to say hi!
