NC Demos December Blog Hop

Hi there & Happy Holidays!

I am so honored to be the rookie member joining with the NC Demos for our December Blog Hop!
Our theme this month is Pick Three!  We were to pick one stamp set and use it three different ways.  This was a VERY hard assignment for me because we have so many great product offerings across our cattys!  I always tend to gravitate towards our floral sets so after much deliberation, I chose the Floral Essence stamp set as the featured set for my project trio.

My first project teams up Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive.  These colors add a wonderful richness to the project.  I wanted to echo the punched leaves and enlisted the help of the Layered Leaves Embossing folder.  The flowers are stamped with Blackberry Bliss and a blender pen was utilized to put the color towards the tips.  This technique softens the flowers for an elegant touch.   Then, I punched out the flowers using the Perennial Flower Punch.  The Clear Faceted Gems complete adds a nice amount of bling elegance to my card project.  The flowers are accented by leaves stamped in Old Olive and punched out using the Leaf Punch.

Although Christmas just passed us by, I am stay in gift giving mode all year along.  Using Very Vanilla as my base, I created a 2” wide tag and randomly stamped the full flower across the tag using the bright Flirty Flamingo ink.  The flower centers were created using Bermuda Bay and Delightful Daisy ink.  The tag is accented by a second tag created by the Everday Punch on a sheet from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Keeping gift tags on hand helps for those quick gifts throughout the year!

Last but not least is this Tiny Treat Box!  It is super cute!  I borrowed the background paper from the Lily Impressions DSP.  The Layering Oval dies showcase a flower stamped in Melon Mambo and Delightful Daisy ink.  

Thanks for visiting my blog!  Please check out the other NC Demos and their wonderful creations!
