we'd love it if you'd like to leave a comment at either the DV blog or the SNS blog telling us which projects were your favorites. :-)

here is what i've prepared for you today -



to create my card i used pattern paper, SPARKLE N SPRINKLE winter essentials collection embossing powders, silver dreams glitter [G1002], cloud nine velvet glitter [GM2000], SNS pine forest stamp and DIE-VERSIONS whispers delicate snowflake die, whispers SANTA's reindeers die and sweet wordlets season's greetings die.

and here are some close ups of my project:


i stamped the pine trees with  SNS pine forest stamp and versamark ink two times on pattern paper. then i heat embossed the sets using EP406 frosted juniper from the SNS winter essentials collection embossing powders. after the embossing powder has cooled down, i fussy cut some of the pine trees from the second image to create the 3d effect on my card.

for the large snowflake i used white cardstock, which i covered with 2 1/2"double sided tear-ific tape, and DIE-VERSIONS whispers delicate snowflake die. after i die cut the snowflake, i peeled off the protective layer and sprinkled SNS cloud nine velvet glitter [GM2000] on top of it. then i divided the glittery die cut in two parts and adhered it on my card.


for the SANTA sleigh embellishment i used reddish pattern paper and DIE-VERSIONS whispers SANTA's reindeers die. to create the vintage effect, i rubbed my die cut with VERSAMARK ink and heat embossed it with EP409 winter white from the winter essentials collection embossing powders.


for my sentiment i fussy cut the banners and then i used DIE-VERSIONS sweet wordlets season's greetings die and SNS cloud nine velvet glitter [GM2000] for the words.


we hope you enjoy this blog hop and it gives you lots of inspiration!
don't forget to leave each of us a comment and follow both DIE-VERSIONS and SPARKE N SPRINKLE on facebook!

have fun hopping!

hugs 'n smiles,
