Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad Bog Hop!

Blog Hop Badges December 2012

Hello everyone and welcome to this month’s Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad Blog Hop. Most likely you have arrived here from Terry Blais’ Blog, didn’t she have some great projects?! This is my first time out with these talented ladies and I hope that you enjoy my projects. This month we have a holiday theme and I have a card and a 3D project for you today.

First up is the card that I CASE’d it from Stampin’ Success. The base of the card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. I stamped the greeting from the More Merry Messages Stamp Set in Early Espresso. The border that is stamped across the bottom in Crumb Cake is from the Make a Mitten Stamp Set. All of the paper is from the Festival of Prints Designer Series paper Stack, cut into strips and some ends are flagged. The mittens are punched out from Island Indigo and Cherry Cobbler with the Mitten Builder Punch. The reindeer are from the Make a Mitten Set and are stamped in Early Espresso. I really like the simplicity of the card and it’s a great way to use some of your scraps of DSP.


Next up we have the 3D project. I was in one of the local craft stores and I saw this small printer’s tray. I thought it would be great to fill with some Stampin’ Up! goodies to make a little Christmas display. All of the interior of the tray is lined with Crumb Cake Card Stock that I embossed with the Chevron Textured impressions Embossing Folder. They are adhered to the inside with Sticky Strip. The gingerbread men and the mug are from the Scentsational Season Stamp Set and are stamped in Soft Suede and Island Indigo. I cut them out with the Holiday Collection Framelits Dies and adhered them with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. In the other side we have a piece of Island Indigo that I punched the edge with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. A piece of Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon is adhered around the back with Sticky Strip. I punched a piece of Soft Suede with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and embossed it with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A set of mittens in Island Indigo and Raspberry Ripple are punched out with the Mitten Builder Punch and the reindeer is from the Make a Mitten Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso. They are all adhered together and the the tray with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is form the More Merry Messages and is stamped in Raspberry Ripple on Very Vanilla and the corners rounded with the 3/16″ Corner Rounder. I backed it with a piece of Raspberry Ripple and adhered it with some more Stmapin’ Dimensionals. I love this and will definitely make some more to give as gifts. How cute would this be hanging up for the holidays?!
