I created three cards for this blog hop. All three use the STAMPlorations Doodled Christmas Bells Cover Plate die. The first card also includes the new STAMPlorations Heaven and Nature Sing Phrase die.

The Doodled Christmas Bells die cut was cut from mirrored silver cardstock and adhered onto a white card base. I had the black cardstock oval frame already cut from another project so I adhered that over top. The phrase die cut was cut from red glitter paper and adhered overtop the frame to complete the card. The "i" in "sing" was dotted with a red rhinestone.

This next card is my favorite but it did take some time to complete it. I used the cover plate to cut out black cardstock, mirrored silver metallic paper and the red glitter paper being careful to collect the pieces that are left After adhering the black background to a white card base I glued in pieces from the red glitter for the bow and the mirrored silver pieces for the bells. I really love the look of this "paper piecing".

For the last one I went with easy! I adhered the red glitter die cut to the white card base and was done!

I hope I have inspired you to hop with us and to leave comments for a chance to win one of the prizes! Also, you can use my discount code STAMPGIRLHARRIET and get an extra 20% off.
