Blog Hop with a Little Blog Candy!


I am so excited to be participating in the Simply INKcredible Sisters Holiday Blog Hop!  We will be focusing on Christmas projects.   You may have arrived here from Dawn Duval's blog, or maybe you are one of my followers who came here today for your occasional dose of inspiration.  If you should get lost along the way, click on the links below to get back on the hop.  Have fun!
 My first project is what I call a Backwards Card.  Below is what it looks like as you  begin to open it....
 And then here is what it looks like on the inside.  There is plenty of room to write a personal message, or to attach a photograph.
Supplies used to make this card:
Stamp Sets:  Ornament Keepsakes, More Merry Messages (These sets are NOT in the annual catalog, but they ARE still available for purchase.)
Card stock: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Designer Series Paper: Season of Style
Other: Big Shot, Scallop Circle Bigz Die, Labels Collection Framelits, Holiday Ornament Framelits, 1/4" stitched Whisper White grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals


Below is my second project - a Christmas card, with a little surprise inside!  This is a quick & easy card to make when you want to give someone a gift card for the holidays.


Supplies used to make this card:
Stamp Sets: Merry Little Christmas, More Merry Messages
Card stock: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Designer Series Paper: Season of Style
Other: Big Shot, Labels Collection Framelits, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, 1 1/4" circle punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

I hope you enjoyed my projects today.  Now I would like to give you a chance to win some Blog Candy!  Please leave a comment on this post by midnight on Monday, November 18. I will choose a winner at random to win a Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack.  It is a stack of 48 sheets (4x6) of double-sided paper sized for card fronts.   I used some of the patterns to make today's projects!

Now hop along to Liz Haddon's blog to see her Christmas Creations.


Thanks for stopping by!
