Handmade Holidays Blog Hop - Day One

Welcome to the Third Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop!  The best crafters, designers, and makers have come together to create and share a series of thoughtful, handmade gifts for the holidays during this 3 day blog hop.  Our goal is to inspire you to create something from the heart this holiday season as well as share how to use our products in fun, innovative ways.  We intend this hop to serve as a resource to you for this holiday season for years to come.

Hop along to each blog in the list.  Each day from November 1through November 3, 2013, we'll be posting a brand new list of blogs to hop to.  Comment on each blog, share your favorite posts over social media, and then use the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of each post to enter to win the Grand Prize, a gift basket filled with crafty swag from the companies on the hop!  We're ready to inspire, share, and create- are you ready to hop?

Right now you if you are visiting the 100 Proof Press Blog for the first time, I welcome you and hope you enjoy this marvelous set of cards by Teresa Abajo. Teresa has made a detailed tutorial for you to follow along:

A set of cards makes a wonderful gift for someone who appreciates the word involved, but is time-poor themselves.  This set of cards requires a couple different double-sided papers, Winter Snowglobe Girl Stamp, some dies, and minimal coloring skills.

Step 1: Cut four card fronts from the patterned paper.  I have used papers from KaiserCrafts Gingerbread range.  Score and fold four white card bases.

Step 2: Cut a scalloped oval from the center of each patterned paper piece.  This hole will be covered up in the final card.  I have used Spellbinders dies.

Step 3: Cut some decorative ovals from white cardstock.

Step 4: Adhere the card fronts to the card bases, then layer the ovals over the hole.

Step 5: Stamp Winter Snowglobe Girl in water proof black ink.  Cut with an oval die and sponge with brown ink before removing the die.  This will leave an even white border around the die cut.

Step 6: Color the image with our preferred medium (I have used Distress Markers here).  Add tiny blobs of Liquid Pearls to the snow and silver Stickles to the snowflakes above her head.

I think the cards Teresa designed are festive and lovely, and I have created three different prize packs, and one of them includes the Snowglobe Girl image.  All you need to do to enter the 100 Proof Press giveway is leave a comment on our blog, and I will choose one winner from each day of the hop.  Now, to be entered into the GRAND PRIZE giveaway, you need to use the Rafflecopter widget you'll find at the bottom of this post.

I adore the snow globe girl stamp! The distress marker coloring adds a lovely vintage look offset by the liquid pearl snowdrops. A very merry holiday card indeed!

That's a good tip about cutting out the scalloped ovals then layering on top - saves paper and looks good too!
