Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Christmas Theme

Hello Friends! Today I am participating in the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop and the theme for this month's hop is Christmas!!! I love Christmas, so I am excited to see what everyone will be showing on this blog hop.

Make sure you visit all the participating blogs as I am sure you will find great ideas from demonstrators around the world!! also don't forget to have a pen and paper ready to write down all the items you like as you hop with us, I am sure you will want to get some of the Stampin' Up! items being showcased on this hop!! and when you purchase with me online (US) you get the monthly card kit of the month (you can read more below).

The card I am showing today is featuring the Snowflake Showcase which is only available in November, while supply lasts, so if you like any of the products on this showcase get them while you still can!.. :) You can see all the products on this promotion HERE so far the only item not longer available is the velveteen paper.. it is already gone.. so do not wait too long.  :)

I used the Snowfall thinlits and the Buffalo Check stamp set!
I would recommend to use the stamparatus when stamping the buffalo check stamp set to ensure you get the look you want on the background image, you can re-ink and re-stamp onto the first stamped image so you get a darker/crispier image.

Also this time I did something different with the Buffalo Check stamp set, I stamped it in Crumb Cake onto Crumb Cake cardstock, and then I added some lines using the regular markers (Early Espresso) and the stamping blends (Cherry Cobler light shade). I did found out that it was easier to use a quilter's ruler since you can see thru and you can see how much of a distance from each line you want to mark the lines. Just remember to clean your ruler after its use as it will get stained and could potentially smear some of this color on your project :)

For the snowflake, I used the snowfall thinlits and die cut them in Gold Foil paper, I also die cut a shadow snowflake in cherry cobbler to put in between the large and small snowflake and to finish it up, I added a gold faceted gem on the smaller snowflake. If you are wondering where is this sentiment, this is actually from the Christmas Pines stamp set, which is on the annual catalog, this stamp set is from last year.
