Stampin' Friends Blog Hop December

  Happy Thursday!  Welcome to the Stampin' Friends December Blog Hop!  There are 3 guest bloggers this month and  I am super excited to be one of them.  Other guest bloggers for the month of December are - Maria Willis and Barbara Welch.   Be sure to check out all the great blogs for this month's Hop!
  If you are following the Hop in order you have just arrived from Andrea Pancrazio's Blog.  What great projects she shared with us! There are 13 stops along the Hop so I hope you will join us for all of them.
  Christmas is my favorite time of year so I was really happy to be chosen to join in on this Hop.  So let's get on to my projects.
I chose to use the stamp set "Peaceful Pines" and the Framlit Dies "Perfect Pines" from Stampin' Up! for my projects.
A closer view of my card shows that I used the dryer sheet technique with some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to give the background a softer background.  First I stamped the trees in Mossy Meadow ink and stamped off every other tree.  Then added a dryer sheet that had been sprayed with spray adhesive then added the glitter on top.  I layered a strip of Mossy Meadow behind it and then Real Red then finally onto a Crumb Cake cardbase.  I then added focal point, a tree with some dimensionals to make it stand out a little more.
For my 3-D Project I chose to make a little treat holder that can easily hang from a tree or be used to tie on a special present.  I used one of the mini Tic Tac containers in mine.  Starting with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch I made a back for my holder then added a little box to the front of it.  I made some fun shred by cutting real skinny strips of cardstock and then wadding it up.  Adding some fun Polka Dot DSP adds some color to the project.  I freyed some wide burlap ribbon and used some of those pieces for my ribbon.  (I love the texture of freyed ribbon)
Thank you for stopping by to check out my projects.  
Time for a Give-Away!
My favorite Holiday is Valentine's Day.  I have always loved making and collecting Valentine's.  Good luck!
Now it's time to hop on over to Lisa Altman's Blog and see what fun projects she has made to share with us.

I love this stamp set! ...and I don't have it. So that means I especially love to see projects using it. I love your card-the drier sheet technique was perfect for it. The tic-tac holder is awesome too. It would make a perfect additions to a gift or as a fun "edible" ornament.
