Holiday Expressions Spotlight

Welcome to the Holiday Expressions Spotlight Blog Hop

Presented by Close to My Heart Independent Consultants 

Products available until December 31, 2015

If you arrived here from Paige's blog you're on the right path.  If you wish to start at the beginning hop over to Melinda's blog for the complete list of participating independent consultants, or you can keep hopping and you will see all of the wonderful artwork.

 I love all things Christmas and I have fun playing with all the fun products we have this year.  BUT we do have fun Halloween and heartfelt Thanksgiving items, so not just for Christmas Virginia.   I've been enjoying using the new Cricut Artistry cartridge this is a must have cartridge in my opinion. Make sure you have it on your Christmas list. ;^)  Now on to the cards I made for this hop.  

I used the same basic design on both cards, but changed the color, flipped the B&T, and used different Cricut cuts for embellishments.  The card on the right has a more traditional feeling, while the card on the left has a contemporary vibe, IMO, and they are the same piece of paper just different sides...how cool is that? I love our B&T for that reason.  

The cards have a fair amount of fine colored glitter detail, and I left them overnight to ensure that they were nice and dry but, you can always use a heat gun to speed up the process.   I used three stamps sets, two Cricut cartridges, and one piece of B&T paper.  The complete list of products I used is below.

  • Cardstock:  Colonial White, Cranberry, Fern, & Glacier.
  • B&T paper:  White Pines Work Shop of the Go
  • My Acrylic Stamp Sets: Festive Trees{Hostess Rewards}B1493,  Miracle of Christmas D1656, White Pines Scrapbooking Workshop G1098{D1678}.
  • Exclusive Inks:  Cranberry & Fern
  • Accessories:  Gold Foil Tape
  • Exclusive Cricut Cartridges:  Artistry & Art Philosophy
  • Green & Red glitter glue & Gold Ribbon sourced other
