Welcome to the Holiday Mini Blog Hop

Holiday Mini Blog Hop Final

Welcome to the 16th stop of the Stampin’ Addicts Happy Holidays Blog Hop.

If you have come from Rhonda’s blog I hope you are enjoying the hop. If you are starting here at my blog welcome to the Holiday Mini Blog Hop. All of the blogs will make a big circle so can either forward through the hop or if you are feeling froggy you can go backward through the hop. (See the links at the bottom of my post.) The links will remain active until Monday (August 31st) night but come Tuesday (September 1st) the links will be gone so if you see something you like make sure to bookmark the blog. All of the products featured on this hop will be available for purchase on September 1st, so contact your demonstrator if you would like to purchase some of these products.

I am featuring the Delightful Decorations Stamp Set (p. 24). This stamp set has a matching punch (p. 25) and matching Movers & Shapers die (p. 7).

P1050391 copyMy first project is a Christmas Card. I thought I would start with a project that uses the stamps just as they are…Ornaments

Stamps: Delightful Decorations; Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Bermuda Bay & Melon Mambo Classic Ink

Paper: Whisper White, Soft Suede & Melon Mambo Cardstock; Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Silver Elastic Cord; Silver Eyelets

Tools Used: Big Shot; Stampin’ Up Perfect Details Texturz Plates; Ornament, Scallop Oval, Large Oval & Scallop Edge Punches; Crop-A-Dile

P1050390 copyFor my second project I tried to start thinking out of the box with this stamp set. When you turn this stamp upside down it looks kind of like a little snow globe. The polka dots look like snow. It is hard to see but the front of this card has an ornament shaped cut-out and the snow globe is actually mounted on the inside of the card.

Stamps: Delightful Decorations

Ink: Bashful Blue & Old Olive Classic Ink; Whisper White Craft Ink

P1050393 copy For my third project I really wanted to think outside of the box. I wanted to try to see if I could come up with a way to use this stamp set & punch for something other than Christmas. My mom suggested that the ornaments might make great flower petals. So this is what I came up with. Aren’t these flowers adorable.

Stamps: Delightful Decorations

Ink: Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, & Soft Suede Classic Ink

Paper: Whisper White & Certainly Celery Cardstock; Thoroughly Modern Designer Series Paper

The flowers were going to be my last project but when I showed my projects to my parents yesterday, my dad commented that the Ornament looked like a little fish. So I just had to try to make one. So here he is:

P1050389 copyIsn’t he cute. Good thinking Dad! I put him on a box I cut out with the big shot. I think these would be great party favors for a kids birthday party. Especially if you filled the box with gummy worms.
