The hop runs from today until Saturday, December 15th at midnight EST. We have 3 prize packs hidden amongst the DT Blogs, and you must comment on all of the blogs to win! The winners will be posted on the Your Next Stamp Blog Sunday, December 16th.

***And now, onto the show!***

First up, I have a couple of holiday wine bottle tags that I made using the new Whatnots dies:

Whatnots2a

Here’s a closer shot of the gingerbread man tag:

Whatnots2b

I “frosted” him with pearl fabric paint and sewed on the circle border.  Here’s the snowflake tag:

Whatnots2c

It’s a little hard to see from the picture, but I die cut the snowflakes out of glitter paper and hand-sewed them to the tag.

For my second project, I have a CAS card using Smiley Happy Critter Crew Set One.  Here’s the outside:

SmileyHappyCritters1a

And here’s the inside:

SmileyHappyCritters1b

I stamped both images colored them with Copics and covered the crowns with glitter glue.  For the second image, I just added the same crown from the frog to tie them together.  Hope you like my projects!
