Happy Wednesday, and Happy December!
A few weeks ago, Shannon from Shannons Sentiments invited me to be her guest designer for the month of December. Of course, I said yes! I love Shannon's images and sentiments, and was very excited to work with them.
To showcase Shannon's new releases, today, we are having a Sentiments Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Cindy Groh's blog. If you started here, you can return to the Sentiments Storefront to start the hop - you don't want to miss a thing! After you finish the hop, be sure to check out the store!
Shannon is offering a 20% discount that is good until December 8th.
The code for the special is: SSDEC2Special20.
Next up on the hop is Shannon Hawkins!
The set that I chose to work with is Shannon's new Ornaments images. I could not decide on one image, so I created an A2 card box, and four cards using several images in the set.
Here is the gift box, closed, with the cards tucked neatly inside...
I paper pieced and cut out a few ornaments, folded them in half, and adhered them to each other for a 3-D ornament. The edges were gold Stickled.
For this card, I stamped and heat embossed in white, some snowflakes and a sentiment. I used a Versamark Pen and also heat embossed the ornament with white. Next, I sponged with some blue chalk ink, and used a silver Spica Glitter Pen for details.
This ornament was colored with pencils and LOMS. The top section was a cuttlebug snowflake folder, and the ornament was embellished with black Stickles.
Red, gold, and green stickles were used to adorn these ornaments. The strip on the right is Martha Stewart tape on a roll.
This last card was colored with Spica blue and green glitter pens, and embellished with silver stickles. A gemstone was added to the center of each snowflake.
Here is the box with the lid off.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
