CWCM Holiday Collection Week 4 Blog Hop

Posted by: | Comments (1)

BlogHopHoliday2014Welcome

 

You may have just arrived here from Connie Babbert’s blog as we, the designers for the Create With Connie and Mary Holiday Collection, wind up each of the four weeks with a blog hop!  And this week marks the fourth and final week of this session – so sad – but I’m SO pleased with all the gift giving and decorating ideas I now have for this holiday season!  The projects and tutorials were all amazing!!

My project and tutorial this week uses this, my favorite stamp set of the Holiday Catalogue, Wondrous Wreath, so here is another idea for this stamp set:

 

Wondrous Wreath sample-3

This card is quick and easy as it requires no cutting with framelits or punching.  I stamped the wreath images onto white cardstock and added a ribbon bow for some texture.  Should you require many Christmas cards this year, this is a card you could mass produce with ease!!

You may be wondering where I found such thin Cherry Cobbler ribbon…

…well, I used the 1″ sheer linen ribbon in the catalogue and sliced off a 6″ length of the edging and then tied that into a bow. 🙂

Supplies used:

Stamps – Wondrous Wreath

Ink & Paper – Trim the Tree DSP, Pistachio Pudding, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White

Accessories – corner rounder punch, Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon

I hope you enjoy our blog  hop today and are now ready to get started on your cards and holiday gifts!  But wait…you aren’t done yet…follow the link below to continue on to Bronwyn Eastley’s blog and see what she has created for today!

BlogHopHoliday2014Welcome

Week 3 is coming to an end for the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Collection 2014 and we are ending it with an all designer blog hop!!  Yay!!  I love those!!  You may have just arrived from Connie Babbert’s blog and I’m SO glad you have visited today!  Keep following the links to see all the wonderful holiday projects and cards to inspire you for the upcoming holidays!

Endless Wishes sample-3

I was SOOOOO happy when the Endless Wishes photopolymer stamp set we were introduced to late last season, became available AGAIN this year in the Holiday Catalogue!  I did not end up getting it last year so it’s pretty new to me and I was excited to get it out to create this weeks blog hop project!

I created a soft snowflake background by white embossing the snowflakes onto Crumb Cake cardstock and then sponging the edges with white ink.  I used some embossing folders on the cardstock banners along with glimmer paper.  And of course…rhinestones always finish things off nicely. 🙂

It’s a pretty easy card to put together but I really am happy with it’s beautiful simplicity.  What are you inspired to create this week?

Supplies used:

Stamps – Endless Wishes

Ink & Paper – Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Glimmer Paper

Accessories – white embossing powder, rhinestone gems, Decorative Label punch, oval punch, dimensional, baker’s twine
