Here we go again.........

We’re so glad you could join us on our Blog Hop.
We’ll be showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep on hopping.
We love comments, so please do tell us what you think!

Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog to see what I have showcased from our new annual Stampin up! Catalogue. I know you have been inspired by Suzette's projects using the Kindness Matters stamp set. Hopefully I can interest you in trying something new.

 I wanted to continue with my Christmas card making and to show you one of the best little techniques I have recently found on pinterest. I sometimes wonder how I ever survived without pinterest! My card is made using the ribbon weaving technique. It's so easy! With a couple of metres of  ribbon,Pearl Basic Jewels  and  a few Regal brads I was able to create this wreath. The card base was made using cherry cobbler and whisper white cardstock.  The paper is from  Festival of Prints Designer Series paper stack. I layered using Stampin Up! exclusive Two Tags Bigz Die and the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die. To give these the finishing touche I stamped  Teeny Tiny Sentiments in Chocolate Chip.I think you will agree anyone would appreciate receiving a Christmas cards like this one and little will they know
how quick and easy it was to make!

The next project is another Christmas themed tag. I love tags. They are such beautiful little peices of art. I cannot explain my fascination for these little treasures they just make me happy. I used Twitterpated DSP, cherry cobbler cardstock,Antique brads,Designer Frames Folder, Two Tags and Decorative Label punch.  I embossed the tree and cut out using the large oval punch and then applied crystal effects to the image and let dry. Next I added the smallest pearls on the frame and a few for ornaments to the tree. I wanted a vintage Christmas tag but without the distressing this time. I am pretty pleased with how it has come out. I'd like to hear from you so please leave me a comment.

 I hope you enjoyed my project and I know you will be inspired when hopping on to Nicoles's blog. Cya soon!
