Global Stamping Friends Extraordinary Hop

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. Our theme for this hop is Extraordinary New Product.  I attended OnStage Las Vegas last week and lucky to win the Breathtaking Bouquet Background from Prize Patrol. In my product premiere order I purchased the Peaceful Poppies Suite.  I used the sentiment from the Peaceful  Moments Stamp Set.
 I stamped the background stamp with Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. I used the Layering Circle Dies to cut out a portion of the stamped image, and to cut a circle from Rococo Rose Cardstock to create a "spotlight", then added to the card lining up the image from where it was cut using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I used the Rococo Rose, Petal Pink, Old Olive & Pool Party Stampin' Blends to color in the image that I cut out. The base card is Rococo Rose, next layer is Gray Granite, then the stamped layer. Rococo Rose 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon, Linen Thread, Perennial Essence Floral Centers were added to complete the card.

Stampin Friends Christmas Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Stampin Friends Blog Hop.  I am happy that you are joining us.  This month our theme is Christmas/Holiday.  We are each sharing cards and projects to inspire your creativity.  Whether you are arriving from Ellen Woodbridge's blog and her beautiful projects or just starting out here, you are sure to be inspired.           

Let's get right to my projects.  All of the stamped images I used are from Stampin' Up!© and can be found in the 2019 Holiday Catalog or the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!
I made a card and a home decor project featuring the Wrapped in Plaid DSP to share with you today.

Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce are the colors I used to create the card.  A touch of Gold Foil Paper behind the plaid DSP adds the perfect finishing touch.

I purchased the "JOY" unfinished wood letters as a set at Hobby Lobby.  I used the Wrapped in Plaid DSP to cover each letter, added a wreath to the star made from the Sprig Punch.  I sponged ink around the edges of each and added embellishments; Jingle Bells, Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler Striped Ribbons, Trees stamped and punched from the Perfect Plaid Stamp Set and Tree Punch make this complete.
