BH 1

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for December; we are thankful you stopped by.  This month we are showcasing projects that feature Stampin’ Up! products that should be on everyone’s wish list. We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Merry Christmas everyone! I wanted to do something that felt a little retro. And this paper definitely fit the bill. I also wanted to create a card that could be easily mass produced for my Christmas cards this year! I covered two thirds of the card front with the dsp and then added a strip of real red to cover the edges and allow the opportunity to add some bling to the card. dec blog hop 1 (532x640)

The tags and labels framelits made the perfect foil for the sentiment. After stamping, I flipped the tag before cutting so that the scalloped edges would be at the bottom of the sentiment. A second tag in real red helps draw your eye to the sentiment as well.  Pearls, rhinestones and candy dots finish off the card. dec blog hop 2 (640x389)
