3rd Thursday Blog Hop with Christmas in July!

Hello My  Crafty Friends, 
Today's Creations are for the 3rd Thursday Blog Hop, and the theme this month is Christmas, 
and this week I took delivery of new Christmas products coming to you in August and just couldn't wait to ink some up.
I recently ran an online Summer Paper Crafting Retreat and we did a project using the Split Stamping Technique, I really enjoyed this technique so I thought I would give it a go for the Christmas hop!

I used a beautiful set called Dove Of Hope (product code 153406) available for purchase 1st of August,  or on pre order if your a demo, or wish to purchase the Demo Starter Kit.

Such a gorgeous set and has some beautiful co ordinating dies to compliment it.

The Split technique us where you stamp down the middle of your card stock and then cut down the middle and use for two different cards, for me I trimmed of the bottom first before cutting down the middle and managed to get 3 cards out of one piece, fabulous for Christmas cards if you have to make lots!

I stamped in Tuxedo black and coloured using Stampin Blends, Gray Granite and Pear Pizazz, I finished with the pretty Snowflakes adhesive sequins, Rhinestones and a splash of Wink of Stella!

On this card, I used the Stamparatus Platform to stamp the sentiment in a row.

Sneak peak new winter Catalogue Products!

Do pop along tomorrow where I will share with you a video on how I made these cards.

Thank you for popping by please do pop along to see what the rest of the team has created for you,

  4. Wow - I paid ZERO attention to this stamp set in the catalog, but you've really made me want to use your card designs for my own Christmas cards this year! They all look so elegant, but without having to fuss around with any froo-froo, time-consuming techniques. Thanks so much for sharing these on our hop today :-D

  5. Kim, your cards are GORGEOUS! I just ordered this bundle and now I can't wait to ink it up thanks to your fabulous inspiration. The little snowflakes are a beautiful accent, too.
