Spellbinder’s Holiday Blog Hop

Hello there crafty friends! I’m really excited to be participating in the Spellbinder’s Holiday Blog Hop today. Wait till you see the line up– there’s going to be so much inspiration on this hop you are going to leave so inspired and ready to create all sorts of Holiday Projects.

My card has no stamps — and if you are familiar with my cards then you will know that is way out of my norm. I usually have something on my card that I color with my Copics. But — I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun it was putting this little raccoon together. I definitely need some more of these little critter dies.

I’m using 2 different die sets on my card. The raccoon die set is called Die D-Lites Christmas Bandit Etched Dies Holiday 2019 and the other die has the tree, deer and the sentiment and that is called, Shapeabilities Santa’s Workshop Etched Dies Holiday 2019. I think both die sets compliment each other well and you can come up with so many different looks using them.

After I cut out and put together all my dies I sponged my background in Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink using my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Brushes. I used the snow die from the Santa’s Workshop Die set and cut out all those little snow balls in my distressed cardstock. The Sentiment, Snowday is actually cut out in some fun foam for some extra dimension. I really adore the way this card came out.
