Share the Seasons Blog Hop

Welcome to the Share the Seasons Blog Hop. 

As you read through the blogs along this hop, you will see various ways to use the Share the Seasons stamps and Thin Cuts that are on special during the month of September. 

You should have arrived here from Ronda LaDuke's blog.

This blog hop is a circular hop and if you follow it around, you will eventually come back to where you began. If you get lost, a list of all participants can be found here

I realize that the stitched rectangle thin cut can be used in smaller sections but for this bog hop, I chose to create three cards using the entire thin cut, along with the clip thin cut - the same way it is shown in the catalog. However, I tried three different colour schemes and ideas. 

The first is a collection of reindeer and lights with a Nectarine and Lagoon colour combination. I love the way this turned out - the lights were all brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush for added sparkle. 

My second card is a collection of stars and bows with a Lemonade and Lagoon colour combination. I added a clear sparkle in the centre of each star after colouring it to match the papers. Again, the stars and the centre of the bows were brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush. This is also one of my personal favourites. 

The last card is a standard red and green Christmas card. I used various images and a few of the shimmer brushes to add some sparkle. 

Which of the three is your favourite?

They are all really cute but I am a Traditional kind of girl so I like the red and green one the best!
