Christmas CUTplorations blog hop


Howdy folks and welcome to a quick little blog hop to share with you a couple more CUTplorations dies that STAMPlorations has come out with for the holiday season.


For my first card I wanted to use the Merry and Bright phrase die. So I figured I had to make something merry and bright to go along with it. I remembered this gold foiled PP pack I had and pulled it out. Ended up making this shaker card and another golden card too.


I used chunky glitter (thanks Bev) for the shaker. The color in this next photo is a bit off, but you can catch all that golden goodness.


These dies are good sized so they pretty much carry the card design. I decided to die cut the stag head from a striped paper. Adhered it with foam tape at the top and glue at the bottom for added interest. TIP: Back a die cut sentiment with a black drop shadow to help it pop off a busy backgroud better.


Same goes here, lousy color quality on the photo, but lotsa festive gold shine.


Hop along and leave comments for a chance to win either one cover plate die & one word/phrase die from the new Christmas dies featured during the hop OR a $15 GC to the store. There was another mini hop yesterday - you can find it here. Commenting closes November 9 and the winner will be announced in the October Winners post.

And from October 29 to November 12 items in the Christmas Dies section are 10% off - no coupon needed. With my discount code STAMPGIRLMARIA you can get an extra 20% off.  Just sayin' ;)

I'm taking these cards to:
Cards in Envy - Favorite Holiday (Christmas is mine, hands down)
Daring Cardmakers - Go Glitter
Happy Little Stampers - October AG with Dies
