Day 3 Holiday Hop

Hi friends!  It's time for Day 3 of Verve's Holiday 2012 Spotlight Hops!

I'm the first stop on today's hop, so grab another cup of joe (or whatever strikes your fancy) and hop along to see the first sneaks at a new set called Joyous Noel and the Joy to the World Plain JaneOh, and by the by... we've picked a mystery blog from today's hop and hidden a prize! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list. We'll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured stamps. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.


For my card I had those brown paper packages tied up with string on my mind.  The poinsettia image from Joyous Noel comes with or without leaves, so I used both stamps to do a bit of fun layering here.  Loved the stark contrast of the red on cream, so I left the flower uncolored.  The poinsettia with leaves is layered below and stamped on peeled paint cardstock.  I layered this on top of a scrap of burlap, then cut the Sweet Scallop Die out of some of the vintage papers I got at the Inspiration Boutique and stamped the title sentiment from Joyous Noel directly on the tag.  A bit of ribbon, some embossing folders and a fun little layer of cherry cobbler tulle finish this shabby chic country Christmas card off in style.

Time to click on down the road and see what everyone else did with this fun new set!  Next up on the hop is Laurie!  Have fun!

  1. There is just so much good stuff on here that is pleasing to the eye! I love the natural elements of the burlap looks fabulous with the traditional colors and oh my goodness...I love the unexpected tulle underneath. I love how you layered the poinsettia on top of the burlap and stamped the sentiment on the burlap as well and oh my that bow! Beautifully done! Wow!
