OSAT Holiday Blog Hop


Hi Everybody! It's the second Thursday of the month and that means OSAT Blog Hop time! Yippee! This month we have 17 stampers and a Holiday theme for you! I can't wait to go through and see what everybody has made! If you've hopped along with us before you already know that each of us make both a card and a project so there will be lots of fun on this hop!

For my card I almost went with Winter Solstice (you can see that card on Saturday!) but opted for a glitzy Holiday card with a cute, little penguin instead. I hope you like it!


To create my snowflake background I used the fun snowflakes from Seasonal Snapshot from Project Life and embossed them in white on black paper. I added Red Glimmer Paper and a vellum banner (backed with white so that it would pop) to my card front and topped it off with a silver doily and an adorable little penguin from the Snow Place set.

Here's a close-up of the penguin. He is so fancy with his sparkly red bow tie! I embossed his buttons in silver and colored his beak and feet with my Pumpkin Pie marker.




For my Holiday project I made a tag. I've been dying to get to use these fantastic reindeer clips on a project and hadn't had a chance until now. I don't make tags very often but a set of these could be a great gift for someone special! I'm thinking I'll be making more of these soon.
Here's a close up. Do you recognize that DSP? It's from the Sweel L'il Things DSP pack and trust me-there are lots of sweet l'il designs in this pack! It's a total bonus pack because many of the designs can be used for occasions other than for baby cards. I created my own background using the star stamp from Holly Jolly Greetings on Pear Pizzazz. Then I added a layer of Basic Gray and sponged it all. My sentiment is from Holly Jolly Greetings-I really love that set! Of course to get those perfectly flagged banners I used my Triple Banner Punch. It just makes it so easy. 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my projects today! I hope you will keep on hopping along with us and hit all 17 fabulous stampers! Next up on the hop is the talented Martie Hillyer!
