One combination that I delighted in was the Signature Christmas Addition stamps and dies (should have bought the full Signature stamp collection, too. Silly me. Oh well, looks like I'll need to shop again.).
Even though they're 'last year's' models, they are 1,000% timeless, with their beautiful wreath, ornament, tree and bow images, and the small, yet delicately scripted 'Merry, & Bright" sentiment. The Christmas challenge (I'll wait while you check out Stephanie's and the DTs samples. Delicious eye-candy, every one!).was the perfect opportunity to bring my small collection to the stage. This is a debut, and already I have ideas of how to renovate and re-create.
Here are my little 3 X 4 cards, with their accompanying envelopes which, yes, I know, bear a remarkable resemblance to their soon-to-be contents. Sweet dies and stamps like these: they're just tooooo hard to put down! My big wish for Santa: more inks, because my palette of, oh...seven colours...doesn't provide for 'coordination' opportunities. So, yes, you'll see shades of red and green that don't quite match those in the patterned papers, but...I've tried to come as close as possible. Ink challenged = me! That aside, these dies and stamps are superb; hope I've done them justice...
Here are the three cards...
Here they are with their matching envelopes:
The envelopes are a MCT die.
