Blog Hops, cards, Catalogues, Christmas

CHRISTMAS IN JULY BLOG HOP!

Today I am hopping along for Christmas in July with a great group of crafters.  There is some amazing talent in this group and I am honoured to be joining in.

For the Blog Hop we are featuring products from the new Holiday Catalogue beginning on August 4th.  I am excited to start creating with these products.  I know we may not feel too much like Christmas yet but once you start creating with these fantastic products you will quickly get in the mood.

For the Blog Hop today I am using the Dove Of Hope Bundle which has the gorgeous stamp set and dies.  I made 2 projects to share with you today.

The first card is a more simple design.  The dove is diecut with Whisper White card and it really shows off the crispness of the dove as well as the little embossed details.  Don’t you love the detail in the wings??

To complete the card I used a piece of the ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper adhered on to a Real Red card mat.  The leaves were stamped over the Garden Green card base in Garden Green ink.  For the sentiment it was stamped in black on to white card and then punched with the Timeless Label Punch. 

The next card is a stepped up version.

The red card mat was diecut with one of the Ornate Layers Dies with piece of the ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper added.

On this dove I diecut it with some of the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper.  This paper is gorgeous and has flocked designs on vellum There are 3 different designs in the pack.  I went for this “flourish” style.  I wasn’t sure how it would work.  I did find that some of the flocked pattern was flattened but you still get the pattern on the dove.

The sentiment this time was heat embossed in gold on to white card and punched with the Timeless Label Punch.  To add a little extra shine I cut a small strip of Gold Foil and flagged the end to go under the sentiment.

Now you are off to continue your Hop.  I hope the links work for you. 🙂
