You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Claudia Perry or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Claudia Perry. 

I decided not to do a Holiday Card, but still use items from the Holiday Catalog!

I started out and placed the stamps I wanted to use like a collage on a clear block

Then I stamped it 2x in VersaMark ink, sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat embossed...

Then I applied 3 inks in direct to paper method and the last one I lightly sponged where I wanted dark but soft coverage

Oh and before I forget, here is a close up on the very cool embellishment I made

I LOVE the swirly background! It's part of the "Cheerful Tags Framlilt". I am not sure you can see the rhinestones ...

Supplies used:
