OSAT Blog Hop - Holidays


Welcome to November's OSAT Holiday Blog Hop!!! You may have just come from Maria Willis' page - I am an admirer of her use of bright colors - just one of the many talented crafters here to hop with you today! If you get off track, there is a list below to guide you. 

I chose to share a Christmas card and matching gift tags with you. I have signed up to do a few craft fairs in the next few weeks and have been busy putting together some Holiday items to brighten the table. There are so many great ideas on Pinterest but this is something that everyone can use, is easy to make and a GREAT way to use up some of the piles of scrap paper we all have! 


 I have a confession to make...I have owned the Stampin" Up! owl punch for over two years and this is the first time I have used it!!! I have pinned a few really cute owl cards that I would love to make in the future. I stamped a Lawn Fawn Santa hat and used liquid snow to give texture to it. While doing it I spilled a drop and had to add some pearls to cover the spot...gives credibility to the saying "There are no mistakes in stamping, just opportunities for embellishments!"


I have had a lot of fun making the Christmas tags. The owls used on the gift tags were punched out from designer series paper and glued atop a larger square of coordinating cardstock (dug out from the scrap boxes)...which inspired me to create my owl Christmas card - FINALLY!

I hope that you have enjoyed my post. I love getting "online happy mail" - fondly known as comments. My favorite part of my posts {insert smile here}.
