Blogging Friends Blog Hop - Dashing Deer

Who are the "Blogging Friends?"

We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada who have never met.  But, through our common bond of Stampin’ Up! and a shared love of paper-crafting we have created a fun blog hop. Please join us every month to see the wonderful projects we have created for you!  Today we are sharing Christmas or Hanukkah themed projects.

I had fun using the Joyful Noel glimmer paper to create a mountain winter scene. I used all three colors of glimmer paper in my design.  The tree die cuts are from the Nature's Roots framelits.

I swapped the glimmer paper colors on this card to a red deer and copper flowers.  Which color choice do you prefer?

One of my favorite tricks with the Everyday Label Punch is to use it for a long, narrow sentiment.  I stamp on a 3/4 inch by 4 inch piece of card stock.  The extra length helps to center it within the punch.

My next trick to share with you is how I created the hills on my cards.  I used this Nature's Roots tree thinlit laid along the edge of the Sahara Sand card stock to create hills.  Then I used the Subtle embossing folder to add texture on the cut out hills. I overlapped these pieces to create layers of hills. 

The glimmer paper is a significant showstopper on any project.  Our dies cut smooth and sharp images from this glimmer paper.  As you can see from this angle, there is so much enchanting texture from embossing, glimmer, and shapes.

I hope you have enjoyed my fun with glimmer paper.  My project supplies are detailed at the end of the post.  Use the Next button to see what Mary Ann has to share with us.  The list below is links to all of the blog hop sites.
