Welcome to the Whimsical Christmas and New Year’s Blog Hop! You should have come from Jessica’s blog. If you are starting here and wish to hop from the beginning of the hop, please visit Jessica’s blog. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy this blog hop that will include projects that are not the traditional holiday colors, but instead the beautiful colors that are another option. There were so many items that were such an inspiration for this hop at the stores this year. Since this was a Seattle card and it is the emerald city, I should have used green, but I didn't have the same choices of papers in green, so I chose to use pink. I love the way this card turned out. It is beautiful in person.
I used two Impress Rubber stamps for this card. I stamped and embossed the Seattle skyline image, then for the colors I used various Copics and completed it with stickles. The corners were punched with an EK success corner punch. I then placed it on top of the pink sparkle paper, which is Braun + Company glitter gift wrap, from Paper Source. It is beautiful paper that I bought on a roll. It came in various colors and I had to get them all. LOL. The sentiment stamp was stamped in pink and embossed. I distressed the edge with pink ink and placed it on the same pink glitter paper. The background paper is from a Recollection’s Christmas pack. I used my distress tool for the edges. My BFF loved this tool, so I bought her one for Christmas. She was ecstatic about the gift. It is so fun to use, but a bit noisy. The ribbon is Celebrations from Michaels. It is all mounted on a piece of pink card stock.
The inside had to be done too. I used piece of the same paper for the top part of the card. I added a piece of bright green card stock, and then added the same ribbon as on the front. I punched snowflakes out of the same Recollections paper pack, with a Martha Stewart snowflake punch, but only used the center of the snowflake. I used an EK punch out of the pink glitter paper. The Happy Holiday and Ho Ho Ho are both K & Company.
Your next stop on the hop is Barbara’s blog.
I am offering blog candy of a set of Inkadinkado 15 circle and dots clear stamps, but you must participate with a comment for both days of the hop. Don’t forget to come back again tomorrow for the New Year’s project.
A GPS map in case you get lost along the way.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
I have entered this card in the "Anything Goes" challenge at Little Scrap Pieces
