Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!!!

ABC's Blog BadgeThis week we will be featuring the letter “Y”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “Y” element will be featured in their post.

So for my “Y” I chose Yuletide which is an archaic term for Christmas. So I went with a Christmas card.  I have been wanting to use the Wreath Thin Cut so I thought this would be the prefect opportunity.

abcs-y-yuletide-wreath-christmas-cheer-catscrapbooking-comI wanted the wreath to pop a bit more so I tried rolling the stamp in Fern and New England Ivy before I stamped it.  It looked good but I wanted more color so I decided to color my leaves!

Now it is time to hop on over to JENIFER BENNER’S BLOG and see what she has created for you today.

thoughtful-flowers-dec-2016I love these flowers and the fact they lend themselves so well to being colored.  I started by just stamping a lot of the flowers on Watercolor paper then decided which ones I wanted to use.  I chose the big flower in the lower corner then started painting.

thoughtful-flowers-december-sotm-catscrapbooking-comI chose one of the vases form Flower Market and cut it in Gold Glitter Paper.  Then cut a banner from Artistry.  The background paper is Whimsy Fundamentals.  Here is the same card but I added the Glaicier twine bow – not sure which one I like better….

flower-market-wreath-citysidewalks-christmas-catscrapbooking-com

flower-market-pretty-poinsettia-citysidewalk-catscrapbooking-comFor both of these cards I used the City Sidewalks Paper pack.  The sentiment comes from the Christmas Down Under stamp set.  I actually made a mistake when I cut the poinsettias, I had planned to cut on white cardstock and then stamp in Cranberry.  However I was not thinking so I grabbed Cranberry cardstock.  So instead of tossing them I decided to stamp the Pretty Poinsettia with VersaMark and use white embossing powder.  I actually love the way it turned out.
