APB Stamp Release Day #4 ~ Merry Christmas Stamp Set

Happy new release week at Annie's Paper Boutique! Today I am showcasing the brand new APB Merry Christmas stamp set both here and also on the Trendy Twine blog. It is such a beautiful and meaningful stamp set!
I kept the card fairly simple, using papers from The Paper Studio's Old World Winter Matstack.  I stamped the Merry Christmas stamps in brown ink on the panel to keep with the vintage look of the card.  That panel is popped up with foam tape for extra dimension.  The stars you see on the plaid background?  Those are also part of that stamp set!  I embossed them with a clear pearlized embossing powder so they are very subtle.
I used Holly Berry Trendy Twine and sequins from the Christmas Shaker Medley as accents as well as a star I stamped and fussy cut, once again from the wonderful Merry Christmas stamp set.
All of the new releases that you are seeing on the Trendy Twine blog this week will be available in the store at 6PM Central time on Friday, October 21st.  Keep checking back every day for new inspiration!

  7. Hey Beth - interesting use of the glittered stars on the plaid background. I like the red and green baker's twine & the bow you created! Best for me is the Peace on Earth on the music sheet. Thank you so much for sharing your project and creativity at 613 Ave C!
