The Robin's Nest Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to The Robin's Nest Christmas Blog Hop! The design team has created many beautiful projects for you to see as you visit each blog today.

Start at The Robin's Nest where the design team has linked their blogs. Make sure to stop by each of the blogs and leave a comment, follow each blog and follow the Robin's Nest blog. Robin's Nest is giving away a prize on each blog. It is a bottle of Christmas dew drops!

The Robin's Nest Christmas Collection is what I used to create my first project. It is a large tag, using Black and White Holly Glitter Cardstock, dew drops and a tree fussy cut from the Christmas Trees Glitter Cardstock. I used a #12 tag from Ranger with a piece of Robin's Nest ribbon tied at the top. A Kaisercraft deer, Tim Holtz star and punched glitter cardstock snowflakes finish the tag.

I also made a card to share today. I used papers, the snowman and glitter snowflakes from The Robin's Nest Winter Collection. I also used a punch from Kreaxions to make the opening on the card base and another of their punches to make the pretty leaves in the corners of the card.

To begin the snowman card, I used a white card base and cut the background from the Winter Snowflakes Cardstock. Next, I used Kreaxions punch #312 (along with positioning parts and template B) to make the opening. I tucked the glitter snowman behind the opening, leaving his hat on top. I outlined the hat with silver Stickles. Then I added two glitter snowflakes. The word Joy is from my stash. Finally, I used the leaves from Kreaxions punch #309 in the corners of the card and adhered mini dew drops to the centers.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoy The Robin's Nest Christmas Blog Hop!

Colorado Skiing

Check out the Moxxie Card Blog Hop here.

Here is a new scrapbook page I did of my great-nephew, Rocco, skiing in Colorado. It's up on the Moxxie blog today. I used the new Winterland line - love the blues and purples in that collection! I also mixed in some red from Hit the Slopes.

Make My Monday

Moxxie's Card Blog Hop is still going on! Check it out here.

Today I have three cards to share that I made for Make My Monday. The theme this week is Black, White and a Splash of Red. My card uses paper from Hot Cocoa by American Crafts on a black card base. The red poinsettia and word strip are from my stash.

My second card is from last week's challenge - glitter. I stamped the wreath (Hero Arts) onto white cardstock. I stamped it again onto the blue paper and fussy cut the bow. I used Stickles and rhinestones to decorate the wreath, using the circles that were on the stamp for size and placement. The gold doily, red card base and green Christmas paper are from my stash.

And finally, berries and foliage! I stamped the foliage and branches onto white tags. Then I added a few touches of Stickles to each stamped image. Next, I added a piece of green ribbon to the middle tag and white rhinestones to the end tags. I used a word sticker and then placed the completed red piece onto a white card base.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will join us at Make My Monday.

Moxxie Blog Hop - Cards

Welcome to the Moxxie Blog Hop! And of course there is a PRIZE involved!
None other than the amazing New Winterland!!!
This line has a fantastic color combo, fun patterns and cute embellishments for all of your wintertime activities!

I loved using this gorgeous new Moxxie Winterland line to create my three cards! The first one is a telescoping card. I cut the shapes for this card with my Big Shot and followed the tutorial here to construct it. I added cardstock stickers from Winterland and small blue brads to finish the card. The pictures below show the card closed and then opened.

My next card uses the snowman die cut from the Winterland line, along with three of the square snowflake die cuts. I used these as diamond shapes at the top of the card.

For my last card, I punched circles and scallops from the Winterland papers to make a snowlady. I added the die cut ticket "Snowflakes Falling" and twig arms cut from brown cardstock. Her eyes and mouth were punched with a 1/4" paper punch and I cut a triangle for her nose.
