Spellbinders and Stampendous Holiday Blog Hop



Welcome to the Holiday Blog Hop with Spellbinders! It's the last day and we've been getting ready for a inspiring day of fantastic projects.

Today's hop has four great companies and you'll find a link to them on the Spellbinders blog, we've provided a link back to them once you've seen all our great projects, and if you are just now finding this hop here on my blog, please also stop by the Stampendous blog for a great chance at prizes. All the details for not only a Stampendous blog prize, but also a grand prize from Spellbinders.

So here's my card for today and it's using a great House-Mouse Designs stamp called Finishing Touches which I sneaked in for Getting Ready for Christmas Theme for Stampendous Theme Week. The sentiment is a very fun Retro Christmas stamp trimmed to pop.


My little mice are colored with Copic Markers and framed with Spellbinders nestabilities that are embossed with clear powder and then dusted with Micro Glitter and reheated to set.

The fun background paper is embossed with Spellbinders and sanded to reveal a complimentary blue core to the colored image. It's been wrapped with May Arts ribbon and Fran•táge with Chunky White embossing powder. To add to this sparkly design I added varying glue dots that were covered with Micro Glitter.
