Merry Christmas Blessings Blog Hop

Welcome to the Merry Christmas Blessings Blog Hop featuring Christmas and Demember holiday-themed Close To My Heart products. There are almost 20 Consultants on this hop. We try to keep our blog hop easy: just keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next post. Our blog hop is circular so visiting the next blog will take you back to where you started.

You should have arrived here from ***Michelle Loncar's Show and Tell, with Michelle***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

For this hop my first thought was black and gold, but then something made me think non-traditional.

I stamped the background using Raspberry on the ombré paper from Oh What Fun Paper Packet. I used my stamp platform so I could double-stamp to make sure the Raspberry was dark enough on the Raspberry paper. I love the Merry Trimming stamp. I did not want to cover too much of it, so I stamped on Vellum. I love that the sparkle from the Silver Tinsel Embossing Powder shows in the photo even if it looks dark.

This close-up shows how I placed the Silver Embellishing Thread and Silver Glitter Gem (thanks for the sharing the idea on an earlier hop Krista). It also shows the Silver Tinsel more true to color.

Before you head to ***Catherine Nowak's CatScrapbooking***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Consultant website.

I love to hear what folks think about the items I create. If you have a little time, please leave a comment letting me know what you think of my card. I hope you are enjoying the Christmas projects shared on this hop. Thank you for hopping with us!

So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Catherine Nowak's CatScrapbooking***.


Thank you for leaving a comment! I enjoy reading them.
