It’s the first of the month and that means another blog hop with Di’s Country INKers! This month we are featuring Christmas and Holiday projects. How about that project that Di had for you? Did you like it or what…
From the moment the Holiday catalog was released, I just fell in love with both the Cozy Christmas stamp set and the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper pack. It only seemed fitting that I should work with them for this month’s project! I just can’t seem to get enough of this DSP – each time I look at it, it makes me think of Christmas celebrations at my Grandparent’s house when I was little. My Grandma had a little sitting room at the front of the house that was decorated in shades of deep olive greens with gold accents, much like the mistletoe pattern I used here.
For this card, I began with a base of Mossy Meadow which was layered with Very Vanilla and an additional piece of Mossy Meadow. A strip of Gold Glitter ribbon was adhered with Fast Fuse. Next, I created a 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 panel of Mossy Meadow which was topped with a 2 x 4 panel of the mistletoe DSP. The top layer started with a piece of Mossy Meadow cut with the Circle Framelits and the greeting was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Very Vanilla and punched with the 2 1/2″ circle punch. The greeting was accented with a bow made from 1/8″ Gold Ribbon and a bit of Gold Glitz Dazzling Details.
I hate to stamp and run, but I’ve got a wish list to make for the upcoming spring mini catalog! It goes live on January 5th, but one of the best perks of being a demonstrator is being able to see the new catalogs AND order from it as early as December 3rd! Wanna see it now and get your hands on some gorgeous product ahead of everyone else? Get in touch and lets talk about signing you up!
It’s time to send you off to see what Crystal has to show you. Thank you so much for stopping by today! Remember to take some time away from holiday preparations and stamp a little – its therapeutic!
In case you get lost, here are this month’s hoppers:
