Winter Holiday Blog Hop: Season of Style DSP and Washi Tape


Here it is, the big Holiday Hop that you have all been waiting for :) This is stop #1 of 16 wonderful stops on this whirlwind of Holiday inspiration. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating for it. We each chose something from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini to feature for you, with a theme of Winter Holiday products. Please stop by the Blog Hop thread and let us know what you thought! You will also find a master list of all the stops on the thread.

If you are going in order, I am the first stop, but you may have arrived here from Mary's blog where she has done some perfectly scrumptious things with Perfectly You! Or if you are going backwards, you may have come from Twila's blog where she is creating amazing things with A Banner Christmas! I am featuring the Season of Style DSP pack and coordinating Washi Tape.

My first project is actually two versions of the same card, one with just the DSP and the other with DSP and a strip of Washi Tape. Notice the embossing and distressing on each end of the card? I love the extra depth it gives this card. I envision a cute family photo on the back of the circle :) I am just loving these flip-flop cards, so fun and easy to do, and they have such a big impact!

How about another flip-flop card? Now that we have the dies for these, they are super easy to make. For this one, I die cut the flip-flop card base, folded and creased it well. Then I stuck the whole folded card in the embossing folder! Slickety-do-da! Then I just sanded the card to distress the stripes! The Season of Style DSP is so fun to work with, this was just opposite sides of the same sheet. I think the DSP really jazzed this card up.

Here is the open view of this flip-flop card.No Washi on this one.

I have to get a masculine card in, you just know I do! This one just uses the Saeson of Style Washi Tape. I had to use the new File Folder card technique, and I can just see personalizing this card by adding the recipients name on the back tab! Can you see the light woodgrain on the embossed deer? That was a happy accident as I was just adding a Versamark woodgrain to the whole white panel after embossing and the Versamark showed on the embossing too :)

OK, I am exceeding my limit of 4 photos for the blog hop post, but really, I had to! I hope you all forgive me :) This is an 8x8 scrapbook page, and I can't wait to find the perfect photo for it! The mat is a full 4½"x6½" piece of the Season of Style DSP, and I just slapped some of the Season of Style Washi Tape in the corner. I used a sheet of Whisper White Core'dinations paper, embossed a scrap with the Stylish Stripes folder, then sponged in Crumb Cake. This panel was then placed behind the DSP mat. I could not resist doing some stitching on this page. It just needed that extra texture. I will try to take a better photo during daylight as this was as bright as I could get it without wrecking the photo :)

Now, it is time to go check out the rest of the hop! Next up is Twila where she will wow you with A Banner Christmas!

Tanya, what a great set of projects and you know who's picture would look really cute on the back side of that snow man card! 3 little boys!!! I love the distress on the ends of it. And the stitching on the other card. Deer card would be really neat to add a name to. Oh my just super great ideas. Thanks for sharing.
