I love all the stamps and dies for this release but today's set holds a special place in my heart. I especially love the modern trees so that was my focus for the two projects.
For my image piece, I cut a stitched rectangle from Neenah cardstock, then used the outside die from the also new Village Snow Globe CutUps. I used the resulting center piece cutout to stamp the rows of trees in various cool yet bright colors, along with the border at the bottom. I used the banner piece portion of the new Joyeux Noel CutUps from a combo of cardstock and patterned paper, then stamped the sentiment onto it. I inserted the image piece back into the cutout, then placed the label underneath using a layer of craft foam for dimension. After added the border at the bottom, a few enamel dots finished it up.

For my second card, I cut pierced circle from Neenah cardstock and patterned paper, then stamped the row of trees, stars and border using a bright and non-traditional color palette. I used a simple patterned paper background to the front panel, then attached the image panel as well as the sentiment cut from white cardstock using the also new Happy Holidays CutUps. To finish it up I added a hemp cord bow and a trio of dots using Nuvo crystal drops.

This would be a great set to make multiples with as it is mostly very easy stamping.
