In Love With Stampin' Blog Hop

Thank you for visiting my blog today,  I am taking part in the In Love With Stampin' blog hop so hopefully you have arrived HERE from Margaret's blog.

I am sharing projects made with NEW products from the Autumn and Winter seasonal catalogue.  I used the Merry Minis stamp set with the matching punch pack.


I used Cherry Cobbler for my card base, with a strip of Be of Good Cheer paper edged with the ribbon border punch. I used the Postage Stamp punch (NOW available in the new annual catalogue!!)  to punch out three red glimmer paper squares, then I punched one of each shape with Very Vanilla card, layering them with dimensionals, I wrapped some twine around the paper and added a button before tying the ends together.


A different version of the card using Festival of Prints designer papers (bargain at £6.25 for 48 sheets!!), I used Champagne glimmer paper with some Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon.


My final card uses my favourite Christmas paper this year - Snow Festival.  I stamped and punched the Merry Minis and layered them on to a strip of Whisper White card with a sprinkling of sparkling gems, the edges are punched with the Scallop trim border punch, the sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set.

Thank you for hopping by today - now it's time to visit Leanie to see some more fabulous creations!!
