Holiday Hoopla Blog Hop

Hi, and welcome to My Paper Paradise.  Today I am delighted to join some of my fellow consultants in a blog hop, this is the first stop,so grab yourself a coffee and enjoy!

I want to share two of my favorite items from the new Holiday supplement, available online,  or if you would like a paper copy I can send you one for $5 (inc.postage).

This card features the new cup of good cheer set,  and inside I have used the new gift card holder die. (Of course, if I had planned ahead I would have had a coffee themed gift card to show you how it works, but  ....)

I first embossed the cup (and a snowflake from the retired snow crystals set - there are plenty of small snowflakes in the new collection - they just haven't come to live with me yet) with white embossing powder, I cut it out and then used a craft knife to cut a small slit along the lower rim of the cup:

Apologies for the slightly out of focus picture (from my point of view it makes my hands look slightly less wrinkly!). I then stamped the marshmallows onto a scrap of sugar using bermuda ink and quickly sprinkled with pearl embossing powder - if you haven't used this before you simply MUST add it to your next order, this was the first time I've used it and I am SOLD!  The candy cane was also stamped and cut out.  They can then be poked into the slit and arranged .  Then second photo shows the back.

I then I attached the whole thing to the card using puffy tape.

That's all from me, while you are hopping through our creations be sure to leave a little love, we all love to hear your comments.  Now on to your next stop, Linda's blog, I can't wait to see what she has in store for us. If you get lost here is the complete list:

Love your card Karen! I've been resisting that stamp set because I already have a similar one, but it's so hard! I love the Bermuda and Cherry together - one of my fave color combos. Have a great day!

Pamela Fredrickson said...
