Day 1 (of 12) Days of Christmas Hop - Bib Cards

The day has finally come!! It's my first year in the Honeybearz Designs Annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!! Over the next 12 days I will post a new project daily along with many talented bloggers and guest designers. What's in it for you? Well... boundless inspiration, generous craft companies/sponsors and giveaways galore!

On to the project!!!! I created a pair of bib cards starting with a kit from The Paper Cut.  It includes the pre-cut cards and the overlays to place on the outside, inside or both. I've always been interested in stamping my own random word background so I created one for these cards. I used almost all of the 27 stamps in the Limited Edition: Joy set from Clear and Simple Stamps. Plus a couple of stamps from Hero Arts and Stampin' Up! to complete the card.

Here's a closer look at the first card. This one-of-a-kind card is perfect for spreading holiday cheer!


·       Clear and Simple Stamps – Limited Edition: Joy stamp set
·       Stampin’ Up! – Itty Bitty Bits, 25 & Counting, embossing buddy
·       Dotted heart stamp – stash
·       Stampendous - Nativity Christmas, Detailed gold embossing powder
·       Sparkle ‘n Sprinkle – Midnight Maddness: Detail, Opaque, glitter embossing powder
·       The Paper Cut  - bib cards & overlays, black mirricard cardstock
·       Bazzill Basics – White cardstock
·       Martha Stewart – scalloped circle layering punch
·       Gold, silver adhesive glitter cardstock – stash
·       Memento Ink – rhubarb stalk, ladybug
·       Versafine ink – Onyx black
·       Encore ink – Metallic Gold
·       Stazon ink – Jet Black
·       Nicole Heat tool
·       Tim Holtz grid blocks
·       Multi matte medium
·       Xyron 2.5”, 5”
·       Scotch ATG

In order to create the word collage I used my grid work surface to line up the stamps before pushing them onto a acrylic block all at once. The gridlines help you keep everything straight.

The second card boast bold color, glitter cardstock and glitter embossing powder from Sparkle 'n Sprinkle for that extra special flair. Stazon works best when stamping on glitter paper.
