BLOG TOUR - DAY THREE!

OK, so it's not like the other two posts - but it's still the same stamp set - and you can STILL enter to win on this entry!! :)

Yes, that's right. Today's are ALL about the SNOWMEN! :D If you've been around for a while, or taken a look at my blog, you'll notice that Christmas is my absolutely favorite time of year. I love to design Christmas projects!! :D Today's scrapbook page may look a little plain to you, but I think you'll see that a picture will be absolutely PERFECT on it!

The Card

Card stock: Shimmery White, Bermuda Bay

Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Bermuda Bay

Stamp sets: THE MORE THE MERRIER!, Christmas Punch (Level 2 Hostess-only set!!!)

Accessories: modern label punch, word window punch, assorted Stampin' Write Markers, dimensionals

I just LOVE this card! The Bermuda Bay is such a wonderful SUMMER color - but it works just as well for a cheery winter card, too! (And I LOVE snowmen, and snowflakes - this card just ROCKS. Wish you could see the sparkle IRL!!)

So, what do YOU think?? :)


The 6x6 Scrapbook PageCard stock: Whisper White, Bashful Blue TEXTURED

Ink: Bashful Blue, White craft

Stamp sets: THE MORE THE MERRIER!, Simple Friendship

Accessories: Gel pen, assorted Stampin' Write Markers, embossing buddy, white embossing powder, heat tool

It's REALLY hard to see the swirls from SIMPLE FRIENDSHIP on the background, but they're there, I promise! :) To get the snowmen that kind of translucent white, I colored with a gel pen, then wiped it off with my finger. :D I wanted to outlines to show, but I didn't want all-Bashful Blue snowmen! :D Again, it may look a little plain, but once you put the friendship photo on it, it's going to be JUST enough.

The 3D Project


I LOVE this project - and my mom's commented on it a couple of times, which means it's made an impact! :D It's also possible to lay this flat, so you could store these - say, if you made them for centerpieces for a women's luncheon - or you could mail them as a gift!

Card stock: Bermuda Bay, vellum

Ink: Jet Black Stazon

Stamp set: THE MORE THE MERRIER!

Accessories: Assorted Stampin' Write Markers, 2-Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, paper trimmer!

This votive square is 4"x4". It's easy to MAKE, but the coloring and the glittering take a bit of time to dry. :) It is SUPER-sparkly IRL; it's definitely going to catch the light! It's also big enough that you could use a REAL tealight or votive candle in it without much chance of it going up in flames. :D

I hope you've enjoyed this blog tour as much as I have!!!! It's always fun to challenge yourself, like making ONE stamp set your focus! :) I also hope you'll keep coming back; it's a fun ride from now until Christmas, and you won't want to miss anything!

My class schedule for the rest of the year will be up soon, so if you're local, I hope you'll come to some classes! And if you WANT this stamp set, contact me or your local demonstrator to book a party NOW!!! Don't wait; get your party on the books! If I AM your demonstrator, hold your party (at my house, honest!:D) by the middle of October and be invited to my hostess appreciation luncheon!!!!!

Now, scroll back up or down to go to the next blog. :D Have a wonderful time on the tour - and don't forget to bookmark me! :D

Hi Lori, Love them all as usual. The card reminds me of snow when it's freshly fallen, the scrapbook page is perfect for the right picture and the 3D is out of this world. Thanks for all you do!!!
