Watercooler Llamas Falliday HOP

Hi there everyone!
Are you having some FUN looking at all the fabulous projects on our "Fall-i-Days Christmas Blog HOP"? 
If you are following the HOP from the beginning, you have arrived from Debbie's blog!!! I can't believe it, I set this post up a month ago to post on the 8th, but..... I forgot to go back  link the Previous and NEXT -blog. in the HOP .
I was happy to find out I can still participate. Yeah!
Now on to my projects.
My first project is a card for Thanks more than 'Thanksgiving' but here it is.
This card uses the "Perfectly Preserved" stamp set and matching "Cannery" framelit dies, as well as the "Window Frames Collection" framelit dies.
I pierced the corners of the Window framelit mats with the matching paper piercing template in the "Festive" pack. I think it gives interest to the focal point.
Here is a peek at the inside.
My next project is a Christmas card made with the "Cold and Cuddly" set (retired) that I still think is just adorable.
I used the new IN color cardstock Raspberry Ripple  for the card base and Pool Party cardstock for matting my focal point. The focal point is stamped from "Cold and Cuddly" (ret) stamp set in pool party and raspberry ripple inks.
 I gave my polar bear a teal rhinestone eye, and a raspberry ripple hat.
I die cut two snowflakes from the new Sizzix die "Snowflake" from pool party CS and
added some bling with rhinestone centers. Then I really jazzed it up with some dazzling diamonds on the iceberg and snowflakes.
Here's a peek at the inside.
My last card is another Christmas theme using the "Scentsational Season" set and matching "Holiday Collection" framelit dies. Here's my card.
I embossed the whisper white background with the "Northern Flurries" embossing folder and dotted the snowflake centers with dazzling diamonds..
I also embossed the mittens from the "Mitten Builder" punch with the "Petals a Plenty" embossing  
folder and popped up with dimensionals.
The peek at the inside shows the "Heart of Christmas" single stamp.

Well that's it for me and I hope you enjoyed my projects for the HOP !

Great cards Di, of course I've seen them all in person and they show so much cuter in real life. Although I don't remember seeing the polar guy fishing-too cute. I'm off to check the rest of the blog hop, nice job!

Fantastic cards, Diane! Love the corn cobs in the jar--I haven't even used that die/stamp yet! The polar bear is adorable--love the color combo and the dazzling iceberg. The embossed mittens are as cute as can be! Great job with the hop!

Fabulous cards Diane. I really like the one with the cups and the mitts. You can almost feel the warmth and the steam just adds to the cold feeling. The polar bear is really cute all dressed up in his red hat. Your perfectly preserved card is great with the corn inside. Hope you are finding time for yourself. Hugs Karen

I too haven't used the preserved set yet, thanks for the inspiration.

Wonderful projects Diane. The polar bear card is so stinkin' cute. The Perfectly Preserved card is probably my favorite. Still on my wish list though. Will plan on getting my hands on that one before the Holiday catalog goes away.

So cute!! (As always, Diane!) I love the mittens and hot cocoa, but all the projects are just lovely.

Marsha J Reed said...

Diane, your projects are great! The fishing bear is so cute!

Kath Ricks said...

My favorite it the mittens and cocoa card I might just break down and buy it.

Bev said...

Diane I enjoy how you finish off your cards by putting interest on the inside as well. Beautiful!

Carol Carriveau said...

Wonderful projects! The last one with the hot drink and mittens is adorable!

Christine Alward said...

Love the card where mitts seem to hold the hot cup, feels so real!

I missed out on that Polar I'm sad all over again! But the mittens more than make up for it. Wonderful projects Diane. Thanks for hopping!
