Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop

Oh boy....I am so excited about this Holiday Expression Idea Book ...there are so many beautiful new products just for the holidays.

There are more that 20 of us Close to My Heart consultants that are taking part in this hop show so off the new products.  So grab some coffee and hop along.  If you came here from Brenda Lapp's Blog you are on the right track.

Here is what I made:

For these first 2 cards I used the Prince of Peace stamp set and varied the background.  for the first one I used the Buffalo Plaid embossing folder (love this folder) and the second I used the Beary Christmas Paper pack.  i stamped the image with Black Memento Ink an then used ink pads to watercolor the images. 

This last two card also uses the Prince of Peace stamp set and the Splash of Color stamp set.  I stamped the "paint splotch" and then stamped the image with Memento Ink.   I matted it with black cardstock.

Thanks for hopping by now hop on over to Darlys Recker's Blog to see her amazing artwork!Here are the cards I created.
