Heart 2 Heart ~ Full Circle

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This weeks challenge is a fun one!! Simply create something using a circle. You could make a circle card or incorporate circles into your card. Really this could even be interpreted in other ways. We look forward to seeing what you come up with. Just remember you need to use at least one Close to My Heart product.

For my project I used a circle to stamp the sentiment which is from the Whimsical Holiday stamp set which is part of the Holiday Cheer promotion and used as my guide to align the holly. The holly which is from the Cedar & Pine Cardmaking stamp and thin cuts. I used Candy Apple and Evergreen inks to stamp. The plaid paper is part of the Seasonal Mix-in Papers.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until November 30th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

Welcome to the Holiday Cheer 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 our HOLIDAY CHEER Promotion. I am sure you will find a wide variety of inspirations on this hop.

If you are just arriving here from KRISTINE PONTE’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 12 consultants participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I used the Digital cuts that are included with the HOLIDAY CHEER special to cut the snow globe out of the Silver Foil Paper. The Sapphire cardstock was embossed with the new Snowflake Embossing Folder. I also used the Holiday Trimming Stamp Set to stamp the Happy Holidays. I used White Pigment ink and then used White Embossing power. I did do this prior to using the snowflake embossing folder. I then wrapped Silver Embellishing Thread around the bottom. I used the Whimsical Holiday stamp set with Bluebird, Carolina and Sapphire inks to stamp the stars and snowflakes. I mixed the blue sequins from the Loose Craft On and Silver Sequins.

I also made up a few of the tag/ornaments as the special intended. I love that there is a variety of options with this special.

I had to make one as an ornament of my son. I love that this can be the perfect gift for a grandparent one just for us to hang on our tree. I picked out some of the red sequins from the Holiday Loose Sequins and mixed with Silver Sequins.

Here is another with the Gold Sequins and Gold Glitter Paper.

Here is one more. I used the Dark Red Marker to color the base then went over it with the Red Shimmer Brush.

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!
