CardMaker & Impression Obsession Christmas Blog Hop!!


What a great day for a visit!   CardMaker Magazine Blog Design Team  has joined up with the Impression Obsession Design Team for a Christmas Blog Hop!  If you are hopping with us you should have reached me from Jeanne Streiff 's blog   blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning and get all the details, including a list of all the folks with projects today and to learn how you could win a prize of your own, click here to jump to the Impression Obsession Blog or here for CardMaker Magazine Blog!

Impression Obsession will be hosting a giveaway on their blog---they will be giving away two $25 gift certificates. 

I had so much fun mixing the Impression Obsession dies and images together.  This stamp is by my friend Dina Kowal who I met at Splitcoaststampers.  I was shocked when I saw her name on the package.  I knew she was an amazing artist, I didn't realize she did designing as well.   

I think this silhouette captures the magic of Christmas perfectly.  The anticipation of Santa coming on Christmas night.  I stamped the image on patterned paper and then inlaid the die. 
My second card features the Wreaths and Garlands clear stamp set.  It includes  everything you need to stamp a pretty garland or wreath for just about every occasion.  The set includes pine cones, poinsettias, sunflowers, candy canes, oak leaves and more. It was lots of fun inking up the images in different colors and trying different arrangements.  


Again I stamped my  scene and then used the die cut to inlay the bells into the design.   A sprinkle of sequins adds a little sparkle and shine - just what's needed for a festive holiday season!
Ready to see more?  The next stop on our hop is the super sweet and talented  Jenny Gropp!!   

For your convenience here's a complete list of everyone with projects for the hop today! 

Jeanne Jachna   That's Me!
