Feels Like Frost

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Layer It Up”  – showcasing our favorite Designer Series Paper and embellishments.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Today’s card is inspired by the current Arctic Blast that many of us are experiencing. Even here in South Carolina we are having unseasonably cold days and my brother ran outside to show my (almost 2 year old) niece snowflakes falling yesterday in Virginia! We’ve had frost the last few mornings plus I just love the Feels Like Frost designer series paper so I knew I wanted to feature that for today’s card. Since the paper is so beautiful, I really let it do the work on this card and kept the rest of the card simple yet elegant.

In our home, we decorate one of our Christmas trees with ornaments that are all red, white, and silver so I brought that color combination into this card. I love the white and silver from the designer series paper and thought the red would pair perfectly with it. I used one of the Toile Tidings glitter enamel dots in the center of the large snowflake and the silver metallic-edge ribbon to add even more sparkle and shine to the card.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!

My Favorite Season – Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “My Favorite Season”  – showcasing our favorite stamps and supplies for our holiday project.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Without a doubt, my favorite season and holiday is Christmas and my love of Christmas has only grown as I now have a niece (who will be 2 by Christmas this year) and nephew (who will still only be a few months old this Christmas). I love time spent with family and carrying on and creating new traditions.

I knew when I saw the cardinal in the Toile Christmas bundle it would be a favorite for me and it doesn’t disappoint. I paired it with the amazing Merry Christmas thinlit dies which have such a great impact. I let the cardinal hang over the top of this card – you can either make an envelope that is bigger in size or cut your card base down to correspond with where you want to place the cardinal and how much off the card you want to hang off. Either way I think it is a fun change.

One thing I love about Christmas is how things seem to sparkle and shine. I used Wink of Stella on the leaves and berries and part of the cardinal to give it some extra shine. The word Christmas was cut out from gold foil sheets and the word wishes was embossed with gold embossing powder. I added some of the extra flourishes from the Christmas Cardinal dies behind the stitched nested label for some extra bling.

Summer Wedding

In just a few weeks, another cousin is getting married!

Here is the card I made to celebrate the couple’s special day.

I love the large stamped floral image and then used the blends to color (and then cut out) additional leaves and floral elements – it is their big day of course so some big flowers are a must! I also added some gold with a layer of gold foil sheet and heat embossing the sentiment in gold embossing powder.

 

Thank you for stopping by today!
