Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop



Hellooo and welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop. This Blog Hop will run Friday, October 4 thru Sunday, October 6.  Lot's of time to view all the stops. If you have just started the Hop in order you have just arrived from Tanya's Blog where she wowed us with her projects made with the Seasons of Style DSP and Washi Tape. There are 18 stops on the hop and I am stop #2.  So if you are just begining with my blog be sure and hop all the way around till you come back to my blog so you won't miss any of the fantastic projects that have been designed for your viewing pleasure. Oh it's going to be a GREAT HOP!  Super excited!  Ok on to my projects.  For my stop I chose to showcase the stamp set Banner Christmas. I fell in love with this set the moment I saw the 2 stamps Holly Jolly and Christmas.  So on to my projects.
Here are the projects I made.  A Christmas card and a cute little gift box.  Can't wait to tell you what I made the gift box out of!  On to my card.
 My first project I made was a Christmas card using the Banner Christmas stamp set and also the Designer Type Photopolymer stamp set.  I used one of the framelit dies from the Chalk Talk set on the background for my phrase.  I also used the Stripe Emboss Folder and added a big bow using the Cherry Cobbler 1" stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.  My color combo included Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and Whisper White.
OK! and now for my little Gift Box!!!  So I started with a single serve cereal box.:) and then covered it with some of the yummy Seasons of Style DSP.  Then I added some of our Burlap Ribbon at the bottom of the box.  Next I stamped the Joy Banner stamp in Crumb Cake and cut it out.  After I cut it out I then cut slits between the letters almost cutting them apart, but still leaving them together and pulled them so the spread apart some.  Added a piece of the burlap ribbon to hang it from with a little bling to make it pop.  Handle is a piece of matching DSP folded in two.  A little paper stuck down inside with some bling and ta da box done:)  I hope you have enjoyed my projects and for some BLOG CANDY.  Leave me a comment and I will put your name in a drawing to win the little box.  Have a stamperific day!

Now it's time for you to hop on over to Holly's Blog and see what wonderful things she has come up with using the stamp set Wishing You.  Happy Hopping!

ADORABLE Twila! I love that you used the photopolymer alpha set with the other two. (You reminded me that I actually own that set- the old memory is going going gone!) And cutting the Joy apart just part way is brilliant--neat idea!

Theses are such wonderful projects! Clever way to make the box :) The frayed burlap ribbon, using a string from the ribbon to make the banner, and the bling on the tissue- all genius! Love it!
