Making Christmas Bright, Artisan Design Team Blog Hop


Lots of Christmas craft ideas coming your way today!  The Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team are featuring the festive 'Making Christmas Bright' Bundle from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  For my project, I'm sharing some quick gift tags.


For the tag bases, I watercoloured one piece of Watercolour Card in a mix of Melon Mambo, Petal Pink and Grapefruit Grove.  Then I cut it into 8 evenly sized panels once dry. 


Each tag was decorated with imagery from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set, stamped in VersaMark and heat set with gold embossing powder.


The adorable 'All is Bright' paper clips made it so easy to attach these to ribbon bows on these gift jars.

I'm a huge jar hoarder - I love having reused jars on hand to fill and gift out.  These are filled with a Pumpkin Spiced Trail Mix, this tasty recipe is *HERE*.

Next up on the Artisan blog hop is Jessica Winter

Christmas, Let's Get Hopping



The Let's Get Hopping crew are getting ready for the festive season with a special Christmas blog hop today - the only catch - to share a project, any project, so long as it's not a card!

I decided to share a gift idea. I'm a big fan of repurposing jars.  Usually, I like to fill them with handmade goodies but this time I've gone with a selection of chocolate treats.

The gift tag features festive favourites from the current Stampin' Up! holiday catalogue, see the supply list below for details.  

Continue the hop for a heap of Christmas project ideas! The talented Eva Pottsova from the UK is up next.

Christmas with the Fancy Friday Blog Hop


Let it snow!

Today I'm joining a group of talented Stampin' Up! Artisan's - both past and present - in a Christmas themed Fancy Friday blog hop.

I chose to feature the limited time "Snowflake Showcase" products in my card today.  I created my own snowy background paper by stamping the snowflakes in white craft ink on black card.  Then I added some of the pretty snowflake die cut embellishments.


I layered the card front with the stone patterned paper from the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  I love the subtle concrete texture, it's icy look seemed a perfect match for the snow theme.
