Flower Soft All That Glitters Hop

Are you enjoying seeing lots of sparkly goodness on today's Flower Soft hop? You should have arrived here from Linda's blog...if not, head to the Flower Soft Blog to start at the beginning.

For my card, I began with my stamped sleigh. I loved adding the Diamond Range Gold for the details on the sleigh. The evergreens were highlighted with the Diamond Range Emerald. And what would a Christmas card be with out adding a little Diamond Range Ruby?!! The snow was created using the Polar White. You are going to love this new collection, once you get your hands on it!

And remember, to leave comments on all of the blogs for extra chances to win the Diamond Range Ruby, Emerald and Silver! Now, it's time to hop on to Deb's Blog - Enjoy!!!

The Robin's Nest Teams Up with Viva Las VegaStamps

It's been a fun month at the Robin's Nest! We have been getting to play with some really fun stamps from Viva Las VegaStamps! I've made lots of Halloween projects this year, so I thought - who says that Halloween can't be pink and black? Now, I'm sure you are thinking that the Robin's Nest didn't happen to have their Boo Words paper in pink, and you're right! But with a little Taffy Pink Smooch and some fussy cutting, I had my sentiment ready for a girly Halloween.

Be sure and mark your calendars for October 31st - The Robin's Nest will be having a great blog hop with candy at every stop (and this candy won't even add any calories!)

Double or Nothing with The Beary Scrap

We've got our new challenge at the Beary Scrap - and the theme is Double or Nothing (use two of something on your design - no more, no less).

For my "double" I used two designer papers - both from the MME 12 Days of Christmas Collection. Although it's Christmas paper, there are many designs in this collection that can be used any time of the year. For my image, I die cut the shape using a Spellbinders label, then sprinkled Ultrafine Art Glitter over the area, and let it dry. Then I stamped a design from Flourishes over the top. I painted the roses with watercolors. To finish everything off, I added some Kaisercraft pearls and Seam Binding Ribbon.

We hope that you will take your chances and play along with us!
