Holiday Catalog Mini Blog Hop

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Today is the Holiday Catalog Mini Blog Hop with a few of my girls “The Red Hot Stampers” and France and a few of her girls
“Inking with Frenchie”.

If you are already following the Blog Hop then you came to my site from Christi’s Blog. I know you have been seeing some pretty awesome stuff and I hope you will find my samples for you today just as nice and give you some great inspiration.

My samples feature a few different things from the Holiday Catalog:
Joyful Christmas stamp set
Gold Metallic Encore Pad
Gold Stampin’ Glitter
Extra-Large Gift Box
Gold Foil Sheets
Season of Style Designer Series Paper
Expressions Thinlits Dies

Here is my Joyful Christmas grouping:
Joyful Christmas Grouping 1

This first project is a Gift Card holder using our New Envelope Punch Board. This will be available to order on September 1st so look for a Video on Monday on how I made this gift card holder. For the Poinsettia on this gift card holder I used regular Cherry Cobbler card stock with the Gold Encore ink, Heat & Stick, and Gold Glitter. It sure is pretty and sparkly.

I embossed the sentiment in Gold Encore ink with Gold Embossing powder. I used a tiny strip of the Gold Foil on the front.

This beautiful Box is the Extra-Large Gift Box and is decorated with the Season of Style Designer Series Paper and the Gold Foil sheets. I used the Expressions Thinlits Die to create the “Merry” out of the coordinating DSP. I also stamped the poinsettia on the Season of Style DSP using the Gold Encore Ink, Heat & Stick and Gold Glitter.

You may notice on this picture that the White Organza Ribbon is crinkled; I did this using the heat tool.

On this card I stamped the poinsettia on vellum card stock using the Gold Encore Ink, Heat & Stick and Gold Glitter. Way Pretty!

I used the Petals a Plenty embossing folder on the white background.

Well here it is again the grouping of all the projects:
