Welcome to week two of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!
Tonight I have three more cards to share with you that use the FREE (with any order over $90) SALE-a-bration Rings Of Love designer series paper that I also used last week to make a Crumb Cake Caravan card.
Tonight’s cards use different patterns from the Rings Of Love DSP that feature mainly Night of Navy and Mint Macaroon. I love this combination of moody blues and aquas!
As well as the Rings Of Love designer series paper, these three cards all use a new punch bundle that I love for its versatility, affordability and ease of use: the Handmade Wishes Bundle.
The Handmade Wishes Bundle includes the Handmade Wishes Stamp Set and the Handmade Tag Punch and it’s ideal for making both tags and cards for Christmas as well as for other occasions too.
The inspiration for card one came from the bottom left card sample (image above) on page 21 of the July -December mini catalogue.
I loved the look of the Wonderful Snowflakes sitting behind the punched homemade tag shape with the words “love, peace & joy” on top.
I used the handmade tag punch to punch out a tag from Mint Macaron card stock and then used a blending brush to add Night of Navy ink around the edges.
The inside uses more stamps from the Handmade Wishes Stamp Set, stamped in Night of Navy and Mint Macaron.
Card two uses a stunning medallion pattern from the “Rings Of Love” designer series paper, made to look more “Christmasy” with the white heat embossed “Merry Christmas” sentiment that pairs together two of the sentiments from the Handmade Wishes stamp set.
I’ve used some of the smaller stamps for the inside of this card.
Card three uses the DSP with the little houses. This time I white heat embossed the punched out tag as well as the Christmas sentiment.
My cards also feature the new Adhesive-Backed Sequins & Gems! (I used the Coastal Cabana coloured gem), Pool Party Sheer Ribbon, silver Simply Elegant Trim and the Wonderful Snowflakes.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Amie McIlroy – I can’t wait to see what Amie has made this week!
