SOTM blog hop - December

Welcome to december's sotm blog hop. You should be arriving from Heather's blog. Next in the line up is Vicki's blog.

This month sotm is a valentines stamp set, but I'm just not ready for that holiday yet. So I took this stamp and made a Christmas card. It's very easy to change to any occasion tho. This card has a sneak peek for "Rock the Block" which will be starting mid dec. I just love that this stamp set is E sized, which means most of the stamps are over two inches. The background is a four inch corner stamp I stamped twice in cranberry. I just love that stamp so much. I masked the ticket stamp from the sotm so I just had the outline and cut in half. I also used the largest heart stamp from sotm as well.

I just got a gypsy so I was having fun using it with my cricut for this. Sadly, I am without my cricut for a while. I had to send it back because it was not cutting correctly. Provocraft is replacing my machine, which I am very happy about. Just don't get me started about the company I got my gypsy from. That is a rant you just don't want to hear.

I hope you enjoyed the card and rant free post. Next in the line up is Vicki's blog.

Simple Christmas cards

I had a customer ask for some. Christmas cards. This was my first idea. Then I had no more ideas so this is the one I went with. It very simple and a great way to use some leftovers. I think I got the main idea from make it Monday videos.

I used ap cart from ctmh so I didn't have to cut almost anything. There a many card designs in this cart that will work for the appliqué idea. The paper is believe. I had to cover up the back of the bits of paper I used and a happy accident came along. If I only covered it half way, you can place a gift card, money or photos there. I love when that happens

Spotlight blog hop - embossing

Welcome to this months blog hop. We will be showing you embossing. You should have arrived here fromJena's blog.. Next is Carol's blog .

Above is my embossing project. Still learning how to use blogger from my iPad so I don't know how to move photos yet. I used versamark to stamp my words. I embossed them in silver pearl embossing powder. Then I used olive ink and sponged the color over the embossing. I love how this looks. I will use this in a project in a later post but don't want to give away the project. So some special people will be getting gifts soon. View this a sneak peak.
