If you hopped over from Christine, then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by and would like to join us in the hop from the beginning, start at Craft Your Passion Challenges and follow along for a chance to win some AMAZING blog candy along the way and PRIZES at the end.
All Craft Your Passion DT members are going to be playing along in the hop with some very special guest designers.
Each designer on the hop is featuring a project that showcases a digital image from one of our amazing Blog Hop Sponsors. What’s more exciting is you can participate by creating a project and linking it up over at Craft Your Passion Challenges for a chance to win one of several prizes.
But, there’s a twist. Be sure to visit all the stops and leave a comment (we will be checking). Once you have finished the hop, we would like you to create a Holiday project using at least one digital stamp and enter it into our Linky tool.
While you’re hopping, be sure to check out the blog candy that the DT members have to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!
Now, to celebrate the Hop I have two projects to share with you to get those creative juices flowing.
My first project is a charming card that I made with an image from Paper Shelter called “Getting Ready for Christmas.”
I adore this whimsical digi stamp of Santa’s clothes hanging on the line after being laundered by Mrs. Claus…LOL After all, Santa’s suit has to be fresh and clean for his big night out.
I printed it on Copic X-Press It Blending Card paper and cut it to my favorite 5½ inch square card size. Then I colored my image with Copics, scored a frame around the edge of the card with my Scor-Pal and added Stardust Stickles to the fur of Santa's suit. I adhered die cut snowflakes and stars around the image from a winter Cuttlebug die for a faux dry embossed effect. I finished it off with satin ribbon from the Ribbon Spot and a Santa Hat brad and mini bells from HOTP.
For the inside of my card I heat embossed a Hero Arts sentiment with red embossing powder.
I'm entering this card in the Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge and the theme is "Santa's Hat."
For my second project I used a sweet image from Crafty Sentiments called Herbie the Bear.
I made gift tags that can also be used as Christmas tree ornaments.
I colored my bears with Copics and cut them out. Then I die cut Spellbinders Beaded Ovals from SU Christmas pattern paper and white cardstock. I added Viva Décor Pearls around the ovals of the pattern paper and adhered my bears. The white cardstock ovals were stamped with SEI to/from stamps from the Glitzmas collection. Then I glued WOC eyelet lace trim between the two ovals with Scor-Tape and added green and red shinny cord.
Now they are ready to be attached to gifts or hung on the tree.
As a sweet treat to all my wonderful blog friends and followers I am offering a chance to win a $20 e-gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp. So make sure you leave a comment to be entered into the drawing. I will draw a random winner on December 26th so stop by for the announcement thereafter.
Your next stop on the hop is the lovely and talented Amy so check out to see what she has made for the hop celebration.
Remember, once you hopped to all the stops and left your comments (we will be checking), it's your turn to show us your "Holiday Havoc" project.
Make sure to include a digital stamp somewhere on your project, and link up your project over at Craft Your Passion Challenges by Midnight CST, December 23rd to be eligible for the prizes. Winners will be announced on our Monday, December 26th Challenge post.
Happy Holidays and most of all, have fun Hopping!!!
