Holiday Expressions Blog Hop


Welcome to the Holiday Expressions Blog put on by the Stamp of the Month consultants. The Holiday Expressions book is full of fun and festive ideas and products and deserves a hop of it's own!

If you've hopped over from Lisa Plummer's blog you're on the right track. Just keep clicking the links to go to the next blog in the hop. If you'd like to see who is hopping, here you go: List of participants.


I love this scooter! I did some paper piecing with Glacier cardstock to add some color. I stamped the scooter in Desert Sand on White Daisy cs. Then I stamped it again on Glacier cs and cut out only the body of the scooter. Add some adhesive and and place it on the scooter image. 
The gift was stamped in Glacier ink. I then used the 
Clay Shinhan Marker to color the flowers.
For some texture I used the Chevron Embossing Folder  on a piece of Kraft cs. The chevron pattern goes really well with the pattern on the scooter seat and tires! 
As for the cute little bird, I used a blending pen to add a touch of color. A sparkle flourish for the exhaust and a few for the gift and it was done! The sparkle flourish is a retired item but you can recreate it using our Clear Sparkle and Bitty Sparkles!
