Merry Christmas to YOU Blog Hop

1st I would like to say my prayers are with the Families in Conn.

 Hi you all I hope your enjoying the hop this is the card I have done for you all today
 This card started with the squirrel cut off of Jolly Holidays cricut cartridge. I used Liquid Applique to give a real nice 3D effect to my card. It's really cool to use on Christmas cards to give an effect resembling snow or the fluff on a hat.
 First you want to cut out the parts and glue the layers together. The layer cartridges are pretty cool to use because they add cut marks for lining each piece. I use Scotch scrapbooker's liquid glue in case I have to wiggle any of the pieces to fit (dries quick though)(cut out at 3")
 Next you want to put on the liquid applique (mine is from Marvy, you should be able to get it at any scrapbook store). I have added the liquid to the white on the hat and used the heat gun to make the applique effect.
 Add some stickles to dress it up and it looks great on the front of a card. Takes about an hour to get it put together from all the pieces cut out. Easy-peasy.

Snowflakes, Snowflakes and more Snowflakes

Hi All and if you came from Card A Day Blog welcome,

I would like to share today a card I made for the holiday. I enjoyed doing this card, I worked through a new technique on this, Double Embossing for the background piece, it is a fun technique to learn and it didn't turn out to bad.

On the card the snowflakes were cut from the Holiday Cakes cartridge. It and the snowflake border was cut from the DCWV Christmas Combo pack. The embossed blue card stock was done with double embossing. Dry embossed with cuttlebug snowflake folder and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The stamp was one I received from a friend of mine. added some blue ribbon, a blue snowflake from a Jolees bling pack and some blue stickles.

Jingle Bell Rock Hop

Hi all and welcome to my blog. My project for this particuliar hop was found in the Tis the Season cricut cartridge
 The card base is red cardstock from one of the value packs, the background was cut out of music paper I got from a paper purchase on 2 peas in a bucket for sale board. Now the cut is from Tis the Season CM cartridge

and what is cool about it's all right there to be cut out and makes a great focal point on a card. It was cut out at 3.75" which as you can see it filled up just about the entire A2 card.
All the pieces for the cut came from scraps I had on hand. A ribbon border with a bow to add some texture and now I got a cute card ready to go. Don't forget to leave a comment and check out the next stop on this Jingle Bell Rock Hop.
