The beauty of this Bundle lies in the coordinating dies. Choose the size tree you’d like and die cut it accordingly. The design of this tree allows for tiny to large in seconds!

The “A Walk in the Forest” Designer Paper has been a favorite of mine this holiday season due to the color palette and designs. Additionally, $3 from your purchase helps children in need this holiday season.

Looking for that perfect positioning of your images? Click HERE to check out the Misti stamp positioning tool! It allowed me to add 2 coats of Versamark to the tree image to get a nice solid coat of ink for heat embossing.

Fluffiest Friends

The Online Exclusive Bundle “Fluffiest Friends” was a must have due to the adorable images. This set pairs fantastic with any greetings and themes. The coordinating dies include a terrific assortment of accessory images, too.

The Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers are wonderful – and easy – to use! But don’t overlook the Color Lifter. This colorless alcohol marker allowed me to add small brush strokes to the colored bear to give the appearance of fur.

The Brights Designer Paper assortment worked perfectly for this card. An array of double-sided patterns in 10 bright colors allows you to have the perfect span of colors for card making.

Unlike my other two cards, I allowed the backside of this one to be very simple. But that doesn’t mean you have to. By all means, use up those small pieces of designer paper and decorate this card however you’d like.
