Winter Wishes Blog Hop


Welcome to the November blog hop!  Get ready to add to your wish list.  The Stampin Pretty Pals are talented group and I am honored to be among their ranks.

We're so glad you could join us for this month's Pals Winter Wishes Blog Hop! We hope you have your holiday wish list ready because today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are sharing some fabulous cards and projects showcasing our must have wish list items! You've probably hopped over from Angie Blake at Angie's Musings, I'm stop number 20 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Stampin' Up! products from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

I have several things at the top of my Winter Wish List that I want to share with you today.  The Ornament Keepsakes bundle is a definite must have this holiday season. I added a little texture and some bling by using a texture folder and Silver Glimmer Paper.   I have two versions to share.  What do you think?  Do you have a favorite?

My favorite uses a print from the Festival of Prints Paper pack and the Lacy Brocade Texture folder.  The card base is made from 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" piece of Island Indigo cardstock, scored at 4 1/4".  The 5 1/4" X 4" Whisper White piece was run through the Big Shot in the Lacy Brocade folder. The new    1 1/4"  Scallop Punch and Silver Glimmer paper adds bling to the ornament. 


This is the portrait version uses the Fancy Fan folder as the background and the Snow Flurry Bigz Die form a pretty embellishment. 
I will post another version later this week that did not make the cut
