Stamp 'N Hop December Blog Hop

Friday 11 December 2020 United Kingdom

Hello and welcome to the monthly Stamp N’ Blog Hop!

This month’s theme is Christmas! It's hands down my favourite time of the year to craft. 

You'll be spoilt for inspiration today with over 20 papercraft projects from papercrafters and demonstrators from all over the world!

Today I am using the popular Trimming the Town DSP - I don't know about you but I have thoroughly enjoyed creating with the Trimming the Town suite this year.

Is this patterned paper still in stock in your country? Or has it sold out in the End of Year Closeout? 

There is no stamping on this card - everything has been fussy cut from the paper.

I love how cute the row of little houses is - in fact, I recently created some treat bags using exactly the same technique - click here to check them out.

#toptip It doesn't matter if you have half a house or part of a house missing (vertically) - this may be from where you have cut the paper previously and are using up scraps. All you need to do is layer your houses over each other so that this missing part it is not seen!

I have added layers of a Poppy Parade and Whisper White underneath the Misty Moonlight stripey patterned paper. 

Adding the scalloped oval from the Layering Circles dies in Poppy Parade and also one house in the same colour, ties everything together. 

I've decorated the inside of the card too and have followed the same design but this time I have added a Poppy Parade scalloped square from the Layering Squares dies. 

I found some more scraps and fussy cut another house, a sentiment and some people. They are honestly a piece of cake to fussy cut and they are the perfect addition to my scene.

For one final touch, I added Whisper White and Misty Moonlight twine - from the Flowers for Every Season Combo Pack
