Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase wedding, anniversary or Valentine’s day cards. You may have arrived from Deb Naylor’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

The Be Mine Stitched framelits has 16 dies to select from. I used 5 of the 16 options. The open heart swag created lots of mini hearts to decorate the card with. The flirty flamingo patterned hearts are cut from the All My Love dsp using the Be Mine Stitched framelits.

Use our Heart Epoxy Droplets to create easy bubbles over the mini hearts. A Petal Pink Frosted Flower Embellishment adds balance to the design. A snippet of each of the ribbons in the All My Love ribbon combo pack adds structure.

The frogs from the So Hoppy Together stamp set have been calling to me. That’s unusual because coloring is not my favorite technique. But I envisioned shades of green on my go get ‘er frog so coloring I did.

I started by stamping the frog with jet black Staz On ink on watercolor paper. Then a blender pen pick up a little bit of garden green ink and filled in the darker parts of the frog. The second, lighter shade was Pear Pizzazz and filled in the tummy and face.

Real red lips were drawn using stampin’ write marker. Daffodil delight stampin’ write marker filled in the eyeballs.

See the epoxy hearts above? There are 2, one for the froggy heart and one on the Sale-a-bration organdy ribbon. Punch a heart from granny apple green cardstock using the brand new Dog Builder punch and place behind the epoxy heart so it stands out.

Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase Christmas Cards Galore. You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

I decided to create custom designer series paper using the Spirited Snowmen stamp set. I first stamped the skating snow peep in pacific point in the center of an 8.5×11 whisper white cardstock. Additional images were stamped in “triangles” around the center image.

Next, “winter cheer” was stamped in blackberry bliss filling in the open spaces.

Last, the snowflakes were stamped in pacific point ink to fill in…

12 5 18bloghop4-001

a fun little trio of images and colors…

12 5 18bloghop5-001

The sheet was cut to 4×5 inches. Then the blackberry bliss ink pad was applied directly to the edges to give an illusion of another layer. I wanted the Swirls and Curls embossing on the balmy blue card base to show through a little so did not want to add another paper layer. Decorated the envelope back too!

Color the carrot nose with the pumpkin pie Stampin’ Write marker and add a frosted epoxy dew drop embellishment for the hat tassle….

My design was inspired from a custom sheet that my sister Tricia created. The stamp set took 3 trips up the interstate before she completed the sheet. She plans to use the sheet to create a scrapbook page.

I decided to create a belly band around our acetate gift boxes. The patterned paper is from the Under the Mistletoe package and measures 4×12 inches. Custom fold around the box for easy decoration.

The middle candy cane is popped up on mini dimensionals. The outer two are adhered with glue dots. Our candy cane builder punch also includes a bow. The bow was the perfect accent to dress up the silver metallic edge ribbon bow.
