Welcome to the Winter Holiday Blog Hop from the Stampin’ Addicts! I am so excited to share this hop with some of my favorite stampers. The Stampin’ Addicts are a supportive group of crafters who love Stampin’ Up. I have been an “Addict” for years and love hopping with them. If you have come over from Debra Burgin of Heartfelt Inkspiration, I know you were wow’d by her Wonderful Wreath projects! I love all of the seasonal projects she created! If you are starting here, just hop all the way around using the buttons on each post. You won’t want to miss a thing!
I chose to make projects using the Expressions Thinlits and I am so happy I did! These little words are so fun to use! I made one card for each word and will show them in order of their respective holidays.
First up is Thanksgiving! Ok, this really could be used all autumn long but it really looks like Thanksgiving to me. I used some burlap and attached it to a Baked Brown Sugar layer then added the leaves from Magnificent Maple and the thinlit word. That whole panel is popped up on Dimensionals. The thinlit and leaves are attached using Crystal Effects (a light hand).
Next up is Christmas and what better than combining the thinlit with a great sentiment stamp. I chose More Merry Messages because I like the script paired with the traditional font. Just add in this great print from Season of Style and you get a fun card that is easy to duplicate. A few buttons finish it off!
Finally, a little bit of of a Valentine’s preview. Although this is just a great card for any special person! Ok, Jennifer, where did you get the thought bubble?! It is just an oval cut out with the Ovals Framelits and then I snipped the extra triangle out…yep, quick and fun! The “you!” comes from Yippee Skippee and I added in a little bit of Epic Day Washi Tape that I placed first on Whisper White card stock. There is Cherry Cobbler behind the thought bubble so it seemed perfect to add in Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine too.
Ok. Now you can see why you NEED these little thinlits. You may have seen this tip before but add a little piece of waxed paper between the paper you are cutting and the thinlit to make it easier to pop it out.
Now off to the fantastic blog of Paula Wright of Stampin’ with Paula! You will love what she has created with the Gift Bow Die!
