Holiday Hoppin' Blog Hop

Welcome to the first day of the Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Holiday Hoppin’ Blog Hop!   
Sparkle N Sprinkle  is thrilled to be included in this event!  All of the designers in this hop are showcasing the newest products available, just in time for your Holiday crafting and gift giving.  

I chose to use the new Nesties Christmas Trees stamp set that was made to coordinate with the new Spellbinders Trees Shapeabilities. 

 I stamped the Swirl Tree and the Solid Swirl Tree with Versamark and embossed them with Irish Spring Embossing Powder, the used the Trees Shapeabilities to cut them out.  I mounted them on Gold Mirror cardstock that was cut out using the Square Nestibilities and ran them through the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, then layered them on a green cardstock.  For the sentiment I also embossed it with Irish Spring, just directly on the mirror cardstock.  The swirl decorative strip on the side was punched out with a new EK Success border punch and I covered it with the Versamark Pad and embossed it with the Irish Spring.  The embossing powder is a detail powder with a hint of gold glitter to it, so it accents the gold mirror cardstock.

Supply List:
Swirl Tree - from Sparkle N Sprinkle
Solid Swirl Tree - from Sparkle N Sprinkle
Irish Spring Embossing Powder - from Sparkle N Sprinkle
Tree Shapeabilities - from Spellbinders
Square Nestibilities - from Spellbinders
Border Punch - from EK Success
Green & Vanilla Pearl Cardstock
Gold Mirror Cardstock - from Sparkle N Sprinkle
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - from Provocraft
