Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop| August 2019

Hello and Welcome to My blog,
 Today I am joining in the fun at Stampin' Dreams and this month's theme is Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek.

I really wasn't sure what to share this you today, as I had ordered a few things from the new holiday catalogue that is available from the 4th of September but couldn't pass up a good santa stamp and with that this is the stamp set I have chosen and I hope you enjoy my card:

    And this is what I have come up with:

The products I used were:
- Stamp Set: Holly Jolly Christmas
- Big Shot: Stitched Shapes Dies
- Card Stock: Whisper White and Garden Green
- Designer Series Paper: Night Before Christmas 6x6
- Memento Pad: Tuxedo Black
- Watercolour Pencils
- Blender Pens
- Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels
- Craft Stampin' Pad: Whisper White
- Stamping Sponges

TIPS: Making this card I found that the Night Before Christmas designer series paper was over powering Santa and I wanted Santa to stand out. In this case I choose to use the Craft Stampin' Pad and Stamping Sponge to tone it down and this can be achieved by applying whisper white ink to the stamping sponge and then adding it to the designer series paper but when doing this start light as you can always add more but can't take it away if you have added to much.

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my Card and I hope this has inspired you to start /finish a project that you have been working on. Don't forget to continue the Blog Hop all the way around to see what everyone has come up with.
You are currently with me - Rebecca-Jo Unwin, see the list below to see who is next in the hop.

All products used to make this card are found in my online store!
