Peeking Snowman & D2D Blog Hop


Hi everyone! Welcome to the Designed2Delight October Reveal Blog Hop! The design team has created some amazing projects to share using the new images so you'll want to grab your favorite beverage and a comfortable chair then head on over to Designed2Delight to start at the beginning. To visit the designers blogs simply scroll to the end of each post and click on the next image!

I also have some really exciting news to share... I'm the newest designer for Designed2Delight and thrilled to be joining the talented ladies on the design team. I'm honored to be part of the Designed2Delight design team and looking forward to sharing more of Faith's amazing digital stamps! For the reveal I created my first holiday card of the season using the Peeking Snowman digital stamp by Designed2Delight.


My card base is Cranberry Crisp layered with White Cardstock then Snowstorm patterned paper. The shadow layer is Cranberry Sauce patterned paper layered on White Cardstock. The strip is Mantle patterned paper layered onWhite Cardstock. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers then layered on White Cardstock die cut using the Classic Scallops Circles Large Nestabilities. I added some white Liquid Applique on the hat and tassel. To embellish the card I added a small gold brad in each corner, tons of stitching, lace, metallic gold bow, bells dangling with DMC White and two oak leafs punched from Always Artichoke.

Thanks so much for blog hoppin' with D2D! We hope you will join our FREE Stamp of the Month Challenge. Remember, all New Release Digital Stamps will be on SALE until October 23rd...Details HERE.

Beautifull and cute card Karen, I really love those digitals but our printing machine doesn't want thick (havy) printpaper or copicspaper inside of his so I olways have to take stamps to stamp!!!

Have a nice and creative weekend!!!
