Tis the Season

When I got this PTI Splits Tis the Season stamp and pulled it out to play with it, I wasn't sure what to do with it.  I was lamenting the fact that I had not bought the matching die.  So after stamping, embossing and coloring a few pieces of watercolor paper they sat, and sat, and sat.

Finally, after about a week I decided they needed to be finished, and it must have been the right time.  I love how they turned out.



I embossed a panel, first diecut with a wonky stitches die, with a Sizzix embossing folder.  My stamped and colored image was die cut with MFT's stitched Arch die.   I added a bit of glitter or foil tape as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Oh how beautiful! You've made me put the arch die at the top of my MFT wishlist! I have that set & the die--haven't opened them yet, which is a crime. I'll send you die cuts, my friend--you'll have them for next year.
