Die Versions + Great Impressions: A Blog Hop!



Welcome to the Die Versions + Great Impressions designer's blog hop!  We've got both talented teams hopping today with a chance to win prizes from both of these craft suppliers!  Our theme for this hop is "Tis the Season" so get ready to see some beautiful holiday creations!  

You have have arrived here from Emilia van den Heuvel's blog.  If you haven't and would like to hop with us, please go back to the Die Versions blog to see the entire hop list and to start at the beginning for the maximum chances to win!

Here is the first card that I made with Great Impressions Stamp: H236 Merry Kiss Moose and Die-Versions Sweet Spot Die Cut: DVSS-012 Merry and Bright.  


For my second card I used Die-Versions DVW-400 Whispers Santa's Reindeers and Great Impressions Stamp G487 Homes.  Using my Homes Stamp, I stamped it twice with Versamark and then used silver embossing powder.  I cut out each set of houses.  For three of the houses I used pop dots to give a little dimension.  I used pop dots for Santa too.  Santa and his reindeer are cut out of black cardstock.  Then with a little water and Perfect Pearls I painted the Santa and his reindeer so they would have a nice shimmer.


Thanks for stopping by today!  Your next stop in the hop is Irit Shalom's blog!  We hope you're inspired all along the way!  Grab all the goodies used from the Great Impressions and Die Versions stores!  

Until next time my friends...be inspired! :)

Such fun cards. The moose is just adorable and I keep wondering how I would use the word spots and now I know. I like the town in the other card. Nothing says Christmas like Santa flying over a town.
