Merry Christmas With Jumbo Tattered Florals

Have you heard already? Sizzix has released new wonderful version of TH Tattered Florals. In Europe they will be sold only from January, but I am one of the few lucky ones to receive them as a Christmas present from Sizzix itself. You can see many amazing tutorials and previews of these new dies all over the blogland and Tim's page as well.
So I wanted to show you something different - a comparison to the first Tattered Florals and the branch die also included in this set.

 These are the largest flowers of both sets. You can see how very bigger are the new dies - they're on the left side.



This is a comparison of branch dies. The bigger one on the left side is from Garden Greens Bigz Die, the on in the middle is from Spring Greenery Decorative strip die, and the last one is from retired Sizzlits die.
This is also a comparison between Bigz Die and Decorative Strip Die.
And these are all other shapes you can get from the Jumbo Set.

I also would like to wish you merry, bright and peaceful Christmas and prosperous, lucky and healthy New Year!

Merry Christmas Again

This card's background makes me really want to purchase some shimmering spries or mica powders. I love creating stamped and inked backgrounds, but sometimes a little shimmer would be so much appreciated...
This cards is quite simple - I just had lots of fun stamping various snowflakes and inking. Only the main snowflake cluster stamp is heat embossed with white embossing powder to pop out a little.
Then I diecut that lovely label die, inked it and placed some die cut sentiment and snowflake on top - that it.

When My Friends Ty The Knot

Pinterest is once again my inspiration and this time for a wedding card for my friends. I like the simplicity of this card but it's also very elegant and sweet at the same time.
I also like how I got to place the names of newlyweds together.

I used Labels Eighteen die to cut the center piece for the names and then I made a cluster of flourishes, skeleton leaves and a butterfly.

I will enter my card into these challenges:
Card Crafter's Circle: Celebrations
Crafty Catz: Use 2 or more dies
