Bon Voyage Blog Hop...stop#5


Welcome to the Bon Voyage Blog Hop, Port of Call #5 brought to you by Stampin' Addicts. I am showing projects made with the stamp set Holiday Trinkets. You have either joined me from stop #4 Kathy's blog or stop #6 Connie's blog...either way you go, you will hop from blog to blog and make a full circle!

This first project uses Real Red, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White as the colours. I stamped the images in Versamark and embossed them in silver and white for a very modern twist! I also used the set Many Merry Messages for the sentiment.



I went a little more traditional with this card. Night of Navy, Real Red, So Saffron, Glorious Green and Whisper White. The sentiment is from the french version of Many Merry Messages, called Nombreux Joyeaux Messages.


Finally, I created 3x3 cards that would make great gift tags. I used the soon to be retiring In Colours: Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red. I also added In Colour striped grosgrain ribbon and embellished with buttons from the Button Bouquet collection.


Please leave a comment to be entered to win my blog candy...Yummy stamp set, 1 roll of So Saffron ribbon and 1 roll of Certainly Celery ribbon.

Oh my am I jealous that you have a French version of Many Merry Messages available. Joyeux Noel is my all time favorite and nearly impossible to find here in the states in an elegant type font.

Thanks for sharing the inspiration and creativity.

Blessings and early Chrismas Greetings - LoL! - Jean
