How Many Days 'till Christmas?

Happy Thursday everyone! Robin here with my inspiration of the week for Dies R Us, your on line super store for dies! I know we all think Christmas is several months away but what can I say? Sometimes you have an idea, pull out some paper and POOF!

My idea started when I saw this beautiful stamp from Crafty Individuals called 'Jingle Bells Rooftops'.  I started with an off white piece of card stock and stamped with an all over text in gold ink. Out of the same card stock, I used the largest die from Spellbinders Elegant Labels FourI lightly sponged the edges with a light brown ink and adhered to the background. The background was then glued to a dark red A7 card base.

I then stamped the image on a piece of card stock in brown ink, die cut the image using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two and left the piece in the die. By lightly sponging the image, while still in the die, I created a nice crisp border.  The stamped piece was layered, using foam pop ups, onto a dark red die cut from the same Spellbinders Elegant Labels Four set. This layered piece was then adhered to the background using more foam pop-ups.

The card was finished with a metallic gold bow! I hope this card has given you some inspiration for your cards using the beautiful Spellbinders dies carried by Dies R Us!

For more inspiration check out all our design team members weekly projects! Because of high volume, sometimes Dies R Us is temporarily out of stock on a particular die; don't worry just leave your email and as soon as it is back in stock you will receive notification!

Until next week, thanks for stopping by, Robin


  1. Beautiful creation, Robin! I love all the détails.... :)

  2. Just gorgeous Robin! Someone's going to be very happy receiving this beauty for the holidays! Do you need my address? lol

  3. Oh, I LOVE this! That stamp is beautiful, but wouldn't have had half the impact without those gorgeous dies to frame it! They were the perfect choice! More dies for my wish list! I think you will have a lot of people offering you their address!
