New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the November-December New Product Blog Hop!

You will be hopping with the same talented consultants who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop. For this hop we are featuring artwork which showcases the New Products from the November/December Idea Book. I am sure you will find a wide variety of inspirations on this hop.

If you are just arriving here from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 20 consultants participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I have been on a kick using the Cedar & Pine – Cardmaking Stamp Set and Thin Cuts. I really love this nutcracker!! With the ability to change mustaches, hats, add a drum, and even ink color for the hair. You can watercolor him or use markers. I went with watercolors. I stamped him in black pigment ink then used clear embossing powder. The tree is from Complete Creativity and was cut using both sided of Evergreen cardstock.

I then used the Gold Embellishing Thread to wrap around the tree. I then created ornaments with Stickles, I used Christmas Red, Green, and Golden Rod.

Your next stop is along this hop is WENDY KESSLER’S Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!
