JOY OF SETS CHRISTMAS BLOG HOP



Hello and welcome to our last Joy of Sets Blog Hop for 2018. We decided to go out with a bang and do a Christmas one - what a surprise!

At Joy of Sets we don't just focus on Stampin Up but lots of other stamp companies receive our recognition and love.  My card for today's hop therefore doesn't use Stampin Up stamps - just the ink and the papers.

I started with some Whisper White and added snow banks with some Soft Sky ink and a sponge.  The trees are from Hero Arts Winter Scene and have been stamped with SU Wild Wasabi.  The little robin is from  Wild Rose and he has been coloured in with SU Watercolour Pencils.  His hat has some Frosted Lace Stickles on the rim and the bobble to make it shine.  He was cut out and popped up on dimensionals.  The extra touches of snow have been added on with a white Signo gel pen.  The sentiment is an old one I've had for years and is one of my very favourite Christmas sayings.





I hope you visit everyone on the blog and get lots of lovely inspiration for your Christmas cards this year.  If you are on Facebook and would like to join Joy of Sets just follow the link at the top of my page.  We have lots going on including swaps, monthly challenges, worldwide RAK's, blog hops and a great bunch of crafters always ready to help out.

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank all the participants of this Blog Hop and all the fabulous crafters we have on Joy of Sets.  It was my small little group started in 2017 and it has grown to be over 3,000 members - it was exactly the right name to give the group also because it does bring me great Joy.  So thank you all for being there in 2018 and here's to a crafty 2019!
