Happy Monday, sweet friends! I’m back today with a festive card share featuring new seasonal products from the 2018 Tim Holtz and Sizzix Holiday release. This is the silly sweet Fresh Baked die set, along with the new Stacked Tags set… a fabulous everyday die set that’s quickly becoming a favorite staple in my crafty stash.
There are two Fresh Baked die sets in the holiday release this year. This is the Fresh Baked #1 die set, which includes a star, heart, mitten, and snowman shape, as well as this cute Santa here. My favorite thing about these sets is that the images all look like iced cookies, ready for the holidays. So cute all on their own, just filling a plate, or great for packages, cards, and quick holiday tags.
Look at all the sweet details on Santa’s face! They are all layering dies that are included in the set. I used kraft cardstock for the base to mimic the look of a real baked cookie, and then mixed white cardstock and sanded Kraft Stock Distress cardstock for the rest of the details. A white gel pen and Glossy Accents adds a highlight and shine to the eyes. And a fuzzy pompom and icy Stickles glitter adds texture and holiday sparkle to the hat and beard.
I absolutely love the new Stacked Tags dies, and as I mentioned above, they have quickly become one of my top go-to everyday sets because they can be used for everything. I die cut two tags and the hole reinforcer, stacked them together as the name implies, and added detail with ink, texture paste, a scalloped border, and Idea-ology die cut ephemera. The holly is an oldie (but a goodie) from the Holiday Greens die set.
The background is a quirky mix of round die shapes from a variety of previously released Alterations sets. Stitched Circles, Gift Tags, and a beautiful lacy doily, too. A fun blend of shabby chic.
