Holiday themed projects for the Pals Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Home for the Holidays”. We really hope that you enjoy and are inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

How exciting to be able to share some "Home for the Holidays" projects with you! Here are a few festive creations highlighting the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle with the Ever Eden 12" x 12" Specialty DSP.
With new supplies on my table, I just had to create another project using the Ever Eden Specialty paper and thought it would be fun to try it out with the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle for a fun twist.

I liked my card so much that I ended up making two.  For the first one, I decided to make Gold Foil ornaments to focus on a piece of the Ever Eden 12" x 12" Specialty DSP  I have not yet used.  
I kept my creation pretty simple to let the ornaments with the gorgeous specialty DSP do all the talking. Sadly, my photos do not capture how the gold ornaments just pop off the page.

As usual, I ended up changing my second card just a bit.
This time I embossed the border image from the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle with gold embossing powder and added an Evening Evergreen die cut "cookie top" on top of the gold foil bottom piece.  I also made the length of the DSP a little longer so that I could fit my sentiment right below as opposed to on top of the ornament.

Of course I had to add some Garden Gems to finish them off. :)

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on December 8th. Our theme will be “My Favorite Things” with our design team showcasing some of their favorite products from any catalog they choose.

Until then, have fun in your craft space.
