Holiday Cheer Blog Hop

 I know it's still October but it's really not too early to start thinking about the Holiday Season in the crafting world. So we have this wonderful blog hop showcasing our current special called Holiday Cheer! The blog before mine is Katy Taylor. Click on the links in each post to continue along on the hop or click here for a list of participants. Ok let's get started!

The Holiday Cheer Tag & Ornament Kit is the way to go for dressing up your Christmas Tree and gifts this year! There are several different bundle options to suit everyone's needs. Not only will you have beautiful decorations you're going to have a lot of fun making them, too!

I started out making some Shaker ornaments and tags. There are two exclusive stamp sets available and I used Traditional Holiday for this project. Markers were used to color the images except for the snowflakes which were stamped with ink.

But the stamp sets aren't just for ornaments and gift tags! Here is a quick Christmas card using the stamp set shown above. I also put to use our new Custom Ornament Thin Cuts. So think beyond the ideas shown with the kit. Remember, the more ways you use something the more economical it becomes!

I used the ornament die on white cardstock and silver foil which were layered together later on. The truck was stamped and colored with markers. I inked the edges to give some definition and covered the ornament with Clear Shimmer. I also gave a touch of silver embossing to the hub caps and clear to the window.

Here is the full bundle of fun products discounted at 30%! There are other bundles available or even individual items for purchase. Check it out here.
