West Coast Creators Blog Hop (December 2020)

It's that time again - team blog hop time!!  Since this will be one of that last blog posts before we pack away the holiday stamping supplies, I thought I better get in one more Christmas card!

This card, and the others I will add at the end were inspired by two things: use of some of my DSP that will be retiring AND KISS (keep it simple silly). This featured design isn't quite as simple as it could be but I did use DSP both from Feels Like Frost and Snowflake Splendor as well as two ribbons that will retire (come June likely) plus sequins.


Are you wondering about the ribbon?  I created this look by layering two different ribbons.  I also coloured one of the ribbons with my light Misty Moonlight Stampin' Blends marker.

I could have layered Misty Moonlight cardstock behind the snowflake patterened Feels Like Frost DSP but since I have so much Snowflake Splendor DSP left and the colours and marbled pattern are beautiful, I chose to layer with that instead.

Even though I had used silver embossing powder to make the greeting sparkle, I wanted to add a bit of bling as well.  I thought I'd try out an effect my good friend Chandra (Dragonfly Papercrafts) uses.  She mixes sequins with pearls.  What do you think?  I love the look! 

Check out this other designs which use the fabulous Feels Like Frost DSP combined with some simple stamping.  Did you know this paper is currently 50% off?  Only until January 4th or while supplies last!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Be sure to 'hop' to as many of the others as you can! 

 You will be so inspired by all the amazing designs!
