Christmas in July! My Final AI Blog Hop

Well today is bittersweet for me. I so look forward to our Artful INKables blog hops, but knowing this is my last one makes me sad : ( I have so enjoyed my time with AI and the other INK Girls! Kristin, you are fabulous, and I have LOVED working with your amazing images!!! Ok, on to the hop! Hopefully you came here from Velta's blog, but if not then start at the beginning which is Kristin's blog : ) We are showing off some oldies but goodies this month, and I had the chance to work with this beautiful Christmas set called Peaceful Wishes.

For this first card, I stamped both of the reindeer with Chocolate Chip onto Very Vanilla. I layered that onto Mellow Moss. The dp is from Basic Grey Wassail. This is a fairly large card at 5 1/2" square but I wanted to include all of the images from the set : ) Don't you just love the little pinecone and poinsettia images on the bottom? Just gorgeous! I popped all the image panels onto Dimensionals, and added a zigzag stitch around both of the dp panels.
For my second card, I stamped the reindeer with Chocolate Chip once again. I just love how that looks : ) I used some old SU Ski Slope DSP. I used my Top Note Die to cut out the striped panel, and added a straight stitch around the Baja Breeze dp panel. Am I the only one missing Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss already??? I added some paper piercing around the Nestabilities Oval and punched the sentiment out with my SU Oval Punches. That's it for me! Now hop on over to Holly's blog to see what she has in store, but don't stop there because a random commenter will be chosen to win a set and charm of their choice! Thank you so much for stopping by : )
