When I was trying to decide what to do for this blog hop I had a look through my stash for some inspiration. First up I decided on the holiday lineup stamp set. I love this set because as you may already know I love colouring in! Unfortunately I don't have much dsp left, and I am trying not to buy any more before the new catalogue comes out, so when I came across the ski skope paper I decided to use that. The ski slope paper really appeals to me as I love papers with white in them. I love the freshness that white adds to any project.
These are my creations:
For the card I stamped the image onto some whisper white cardstock and coloured it with my inkpads and blender pen. I cut the image panel out and then mounted it onto some real red card, added some ribbon and then mounted it onto the card front.
My next project is a fantasy box. I made one of these for my Mum's birthday last year and really enjoyed making it. They are great for putting small presents in.
Here is a picture of the inside and the lid:
Last up is some reindeer food. A couple of years ago when we were in New Zealand for Christmas Jess and Sam were very concerned that Santa wouldn't know where to stop to leave their presents. We sprinkled reindeer food on the lawn and have done it every year since. I made some and placed it in a plastic bag, then put a topper on the bag.
Well that’s all from me. Next stop on the INKlings’ Team Blog Hop is Clare McIllhatton. Have fun and don't forget to leave a comment on each blog to win some great Blog Candy.
Til next time.
