Stamper's Dream Final Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning, everyone!!  I hope that you had a wonderful rest of your weekend, and a great start to your week!!  Today's post comes with a little bit of sadness, but also happiness for the owner of Stamper's Dream.  Michelle has decided that it is time to focus more on living her life, and will be closing down Stamper's Dream.  I have had a great time being a team member this year, and I wish Michelle all the best in the future!!  This will be the last blog hop that we participate in, so be sure to hop along and leave everyone a little bit of love!

I decided to create a festive Christmas card for this blog hop!  Of course, I have created it for some challenges...and those will be listed at the bottom!  Here is what I created!
"Tis the Season" supplies: 
Cardstock: Coredinations (red) & Bazzill Basics (kraft)
Paper: My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found Christmas 6x6 pad) & GCD Studios (Scandia Jul: Scandinavian Holiday Stripe)
Stamps: JustRite Stampers (Deck the Halls & Merry and Bright sets)
Ink: Close to my Heart (Pigment: vanilla cream) & Clearsnap (Pigment: truffle)
Ribbon: Michael's brand
Felt embellishment: Making Memories
Button: Fancy Pants
Twine: May Arts
Glitter: Doodlebug Designs
Ornament die: Spellbinders (2010 Heirloom Ornaments)
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from red cardstock.  Cut text paper slightly smaller, and adhere to the front.  Cut a strip of red dot paper, and adhere to the right side of the card.  Stamp the ornament to kraft cardstock, then diecut.  Pull the button off the snowflake, glitter it, then adhere the button back to the middle.  Adhere the entire snowflake accent to the middle of the stamped ornament, then adhere it to the right side of the card.  Tie a bow from dotted ribbon, thread a button around the center of it with twine, then adhere to the top of the ornament.  Cut a banner edge to a strip of text paper, stamp the sentiment to it and adhere it slightly tucked under the left side of the ornament.


I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your day!  I will be back tomorrow with another blog hop...so be sure to come on back! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea L.
