Llama Blog Hop

Welcome to the Llama Fall-i-Days Blog Hop!
I hope that you are enjoying hopping through the
wonderful Llama projects.  Below are navigation
buttons, that will enable you to move forward to Kathe's
blog, or back to Marsha's. 

This  is a fun little set from the Holiday Mini,
called Toxic Treats.  It features the new Core'dinations
paper, which you can sand for a two-tone textured look!
Colors:  Early Expresso Core'dinations (#127848),
Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake
Accessories:  Big Shot, Sanding System (p 6)
Labels Framelits, Rhinestones.

I liked the Open Sleigh set, the first moment
that I turned to page 12 in the Main SU catty.
This card features the stocking, which is so darn cute!
Colors:  Whisper White, Old Olive, Real Red
Accessories:  Brights Glimmer Brads,
Holiday Frame Embossing folder (Holiday Mini),
Labels Collections Framelits

 In this sample, 
I simply stamped the sleigh in Soft Suede,
and added the flourish in Gumball Green.
Let that dry completely and cover the entire layer with
VersaMark ink.  After inking,  cover your
sleigh with Irridescent Ice embossing powder.  
Heat emboss and you have a sparkly sleigh!

Please enjoy your journey, as you hop on
to additional Llama sites!

Ornament Keepsakes Circles

Just a quick post before the Llama Hop!

These are circles punched out of the 
Ornament Keepsakes set found on page 3 of
the new Holiday Mini.  I liked the "internal patterns" 
of the ornaments, so stamped them in
Real Red, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green
and Summer Starfruit.  Punched them with a
variety of circle punches and mounted them in rows,
top and bottom.  The sentiment comes from the
Curly Cute set.   The new Lacy Brocade Embossing
Folder was used to add texture to the background layer.
