Holiday Blog Blitz Begins!
by Jeanne Jachna

It's Jeanne here today and I'm bringing you tidings of great joy!  We're starting our Winter / Holiday blog blitz TODAY!  That means we're sharing projects made with the new products and hoping to inspire your holiday makes!!  We've got lots to show you and lots of prizes too!   You can see all the 2019 Holiday Release products in the store here!    

If you haven't checked out the Fall/Halloween blog blitz  you can still leave comments to enter to win through September 23 - winners will be announced on September 26).   


I made my holiday card look like a present!  I started with a solid double matted card stock background.  I topped the panel with two Grosgrain Ribbon craft dies to look like ribbon over the blue wrapping.

The Holiday Joy craft die comes with an outline word die as well as a shadow background die.   That means you can use the word with or without the background making it more versatile.  I love the little cut out leaves that adorn the ends!   I filled in their centers to add some extra color. 
The Delicate Poinsettia die set contains three die cuts.   I cut each layer from a different shades of red and stacked them with the lightest in the center.  I had some assorted size half pearls perfect for embellishing the flower center but some NUVO Drops would work great too! 

And now the part you've been waiting for.  The prize today is the Delicate Poinsettias craft die.

such pretty detail in the flower and such fun colors you used!

Very pretty poinsettia! Great colors and love the 'present' idea of your card!

Such a bright cheery card Jeanne, love that poinsettia and I think I neeeed the grosgrain ribbon die : )

You created a lovely card. The detail in the poinsettia dies is wonderful, and using three shades of red was a great idea.

Woow una hermosa combinación de colores, me encantan los Dies!!!

I love the bright and colorful card! I’d love to have this die

Beautiful card I love the colors you used it is nice to see something other then the typical red & green for Christmas. Thanks for sharing

Love thee pretty present. Great colors.

Great card!!! I love word dies and I also seem to collect any poinsettia die I find. Wish list keeps growing!!! :)

Love this card and the way you used the poinsettia instead of a bow for the "package". I may have to use this idea when I do my wrapping this holiday season. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Jeanne, What a great idea, this card looks exactly like a present, I love all the dies you have used, and especially love the effect of the 'grosgrain ribbon', it looks exactly like a ribbon. The poinsettia is a lovely shape.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
