Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks Day 3

This is day 3 of the Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks and today I will be showcasing the Holly Builder set. This set consists of leaves, berries, a branch, three sentiments, and will be available on November 1.
The holly leaves were stamped in a circle on Whisper White with Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, and Always Artichoke. Several leaves were stamped with the same colors, cutout, and attached with glue dots. Some were highlighted with a Real Red marker. The berries were stamped with Real Red, covered with Crystal Efeects, dusted with Dazzling Diamonds, cutout, and attached with glue dots. The sentiment was stamped in the center with Real Red, the ribbon was attached with a glue dot, and the rhinestones added to the corners.

Recipe: Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Holly Builder
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Old Olive, Stampin Up! dp, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, Real Red, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Rhinestones, Ribbon, Corner Punch, Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds, Crystal Effects

The topnote was trimmed along the perforated edge and then it was used as a pattern to cut the under layer. It wasn't cut very perfect so don't look too close!! The sentiment was stamped with Ruby Red craft and embossed with clear ep. The sentiment layers were cutout with Nestabilities and attached to the topnote layer with dimensionals. The holly leaves were stamped with Old Olive, the berries were stamped with Ruby Red and they all were attached with glue dots. The ribbon and tiny pearls in the corners from Flourishes, LLC finish it off.
