Creative Inkers Christmas Holiday Blog Hop 2014

This is my first ever participation in a Blog Hop.  So I hope you enjoy the rest of the Creative Inkers Christmas Blog Hop.  If you are new to Blog Hopping, just view my post and then click on the link at the bottom of my post to visit the next site and so on.

If you've been following the blog hop, you will have come from Irene Wardlaw's blog.  Didn't she have a stunning project to show us.  If you have just joined my page keep following the loop round to see everyone's gorgeous projects.  If you get 'lost' there's a list of all the blogs at the bottom of this post.

Now onto my projects.


For my first project I made a quick card.  It still has the layers that I love but it fast and easy to make. 


My next project was a little Santa Claus which includes punch art.  I was inspired by the roll of chocolates that I purchased from the local supermarket.  I think this would be a perfect little table gift for the children.


While I was making Santa I decided to try a snowman as well.  Isn't he too cute for words.  He was really easy to make and doesn't need nearly as many punches as Santa.

See the bottom of the post for the list of supplies.

I hope you've enjoyed my card - now you're going to head over to Jacque Williams to see her lovely projects, just click the next button.

  1. What fabulous projects. I love the gold glimmer bows on the card and I am a fan of good punch art. Nice job. Love them:)

  2. Sharon these are great! I particularly like the card - I haven't used the bow die from that set yet, shame on me! But now I have another potential stamp a stack design to case, thank you!

  3. Awesome projects Sharon - such cute punch art! And those shiny bows rock!

  4. Like the bow, looks good with the DSP.

  5. I think your Santa is very cool - I might have to make a couple of those for my girls.

  6. Great projects Sharon. Love your colour combo on the card.

  7. Love the car so natural looking and enough bling to make you excited. Absolutely love the punch art, may need to CASE....

  8. Aww so proud of you participating in your first blog hop Sharon and all three projects are just gorgeous! I can just imagine the fun playing and then eating the treats in the santa and snowman treat containers! Well done!
