Festive Frolics - Wild Rose Studio Blog Hop

Hi all,

This is a scheuled post so hopefully its posted ok!!!

Today is the day of the Wild Rose Studio Blog Hop to celebrate the release of the new Christmas Stamps, I was lucky enough to be asked to be a Guest DT and join in the fun.

So as its christmas stamps the theme for the Blog Hop Festive Frolics and we will all be showcasing some of the fabby new releases.

As a thank you for hopping along with us each of the DT have the stamp they used on their card to give away (well a shinny new one) and a grand prize give away on Dulcie's blog

These are the rules :-

1. Hope over to each DT member and leave a comment on their blog hop post.

2. Enter the challenge on Dulcie's blog which is to create a card with a Festive Theme.

You need to do both of these things to be entered in the Draw, you do not need to make your card using a WRS product but it would be fab if you did.

So lets start, you should have come to me from Ria's blog, if you havent you need to start at Dulcie's blog and hop along in order and in case you get lost during the hop here is the order you need to hop along to :-

Then back to Dulcie.  To add your card to the linky.

So for my showcase I chose to use the fabby new Christmas Tree stamp, it is a gorgeous image which also has a sentiment and present stamp in the same pack. Now I loved this stamp and once I got it open I could not stop playing with it, so instead of just 1 card from me I have 3 things to show you.

Firstly this stamp screamed out to me CAS, so the first card I made was something completely different for me and I made a 1 layer!!! CAS card just using the Tree & Sentiment Stamps and added 3 pearls to the bottom corner to finish. The card is a cute little 5" square blank and fits the image perfectly without it getting lost.

For my second creation I went with my usual style of pretty papers, layers and ribbon. Now the papers I have used are WRS Milton Christmas 6x6  papers, they are so fab and have a contempary feel to them with fabby lime green, fushia pink and burgandy colour ways. I stamped the tree in a lovely fushia pink colour and added a few gems to the centre of some of the stars to add a bit of sparkle. All the layers have been popped up on foam tape to give it lots of dimension.

Finally I wanted to make something a little different and came up with this cute little box of tags.The tags are 3" square and I used the papers and the little present stamp and the sentiment stamp on the back. In the box I cut out an apeture in the top and popped an acetate window in so you can see whats inside the box.

Well I hope you like my creations and hopefully I have done the WRS team proud. From here you need to hop on over to Sally Ann's blog and dont forget to leave me a comment to let me know what you think of my creations.

Thank you so much for popping by my blog today, enjoy the hop.
