Spellbinders Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the first day of the Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Holiday Hoppin’ Blog Hop!  Spellbinders, along with Creative Impressions are showcasing their newest products just in time for your Holiday crafting and gift giving.  Lots of creative ideas are in store, as well as prizes galore!  Each participating company has generously donated towards the prize package listed on the Spellbinders Blog.  A total of two identical prize packages, one for each day, November 18 and 19 will be given away!  To enter, just leave a comment on a participating blog!  Comments in the first 48 hours of the post are eligible.  One commenter each day will be randomly selected as the winner.  Winners will be announced on November 22, on the Spellbinders Blog!

Today I am using Spellbinders S4-289 Wonky Squares die template and Creative Impressions products.  I have made a christmas banner and on each triangle I have used the Wonky Square Dies.  See if you can identify them. 

 My favorite is the flower I have made with it.  I Also used Creative Impressions fabulous ribbon including Crepe Ribbon, Organdy Dots, Curling Grid ribbon, Stitched ribbon, Mini Checked and Swirl Organdy.  I combined Spellbinders Snowflake die with Creative impressions Felt Snowflakes and love the dimension it creates.  The felt leaves and flowers are also Creative Impressions.  Do you see the Flower the cardinals are resting on?  Its made from the Autumn felt leaves that Creative Impressions sells.  I used Glimmer Brads to hold the snowflakes and the flowers together.  I love using Spellbinder Dies on my projects.  This was very fun and easy to create!

Bighorn Sheep

Here is another amazing image from Talkabout Images just put up in the store.  You can get your image HERE .  These Sheep are very majestic looking and were so fun to color.  I am always looking for the perfect image for guy cards...I think this one is perfect for that special someone!

I wet and crinkled paper and let it dry, wrapped it with Creative Impressions ribbon and added some cork paper, added Buttons and simple sentiments.

The Air is Crisp!

In Arizona we actually get to see the Cardinals flying around.  They are such a pretty bird.  This image is so nice and the cardinals look so real sitting on the snow covered pine bows.  I think this is one of my favorites for now :)  This image is now available at TALKABOUT IMAGES.  It is perfect for a wonderful christmas card or just a wintery hello. 

I added a few berries and my favorite Crepe ribbon from Creative Impressions to finish off the card.
