Holiday Expressions NEW PRODUCT Blog Hop

It's here, it's here! Our NEW Holiday Expressions Idea Book which means...NEW PRODUCT! WOOHOO!

And...not only is it NEW product, it's FABULOUS NEW product that you are going to love! Trust me...grab a notebook and pen as you make your way around this hop where we showcase many of them! I'm sure you'll come across some products that are a must-have so be sure to read through the posts and the supply lists so you don't miss a thing!

Would you like to see the new Idea Book? You can do so by flipping through the digital version on my website, by placing an order, or contact me directly (if you don't already have a Consultant) and I will get one mailed to you ASAP!

If you are coming from Michelle's Blog you are on the right track. If you were to get lost along the way, you'll find the participant list here.

I can't wait to show you what I created!

I'm so in love with the stamp set I used, the paper pack, AND the new Texture Paste we are carrying. All were incorporated into this card I made. I hope you love it too! 
I used the "Oh What Fun" stamp set, and coordinating Thin Cuts - no fussy-cutting for me! I love these fun images and have already made a few other cards I will be sharing at a later time. (You can also choose to buy the stamp set without the Thin Cuts, if you would like.)
The paper pack used is called 'Tis the Season. As you can tell, it has the traditional Christmas colors. 

And the new Texture Paste...❤❤❤ To create Santa, as I did, I actually stamped him three times:

I used Opaque Texture Paste on this Santa (and am looking forward to playing with the other types).

The stars and bursts were stamped in 2nd-generation Candy Apple, providing for a lighter hue. And a few Bitty Sparkles provided just the right amount of bling. 

Supplies Used: 
  • Z4240 Oh What Fun Cardmaking Stamp + Thin Cuts
  • X7239B 'Tis the Season Paper Packet
  • Z4014 White & Gold Twine

If you currently don't  have a CTMH Consultant you are working with, I am showing how I made this card in my VIP Group on Thursday, September 13, 2018. Contact me if you would like me to add you. 

I would love to hear what you think of my card, if you have a moment before making your way around the rest of the hop. Then, please go check out my friend, Melinda's Blog, to see what fun she created!
