Christmas Pines with Creation Station Blog Hop

 
The Creation Station Design and Blog Hop is back this month! I was beyond thrilled to be asked to join this group of talented women for a monthly blog hop to inspire you with creative top of the line projects with a theme from all around the globe! We hope that you hop thru each blog and leave comments as we all love to hear praise about our creations!
This month we were to cover the most wonderful time of the year - "Christmas" (duh!) and feature a holiday product of course. I picked the Peaceful Pines bundle set!  I really find value in a stamp set with matching framelits. Always a win win situation! I have been waiting to use it and I am so happy to report that I LOVE IT! Which makes me happy that it will continue to be offered after the Holiday Catalog comes to a close on January 5th. Yippee!
Few of my favorite things on the first project:
The color combo of Cucumber Crush, Smoky Slate, Basic Black, Gold AND silver as well as Whisper White. I love the mixed metallics in this combo!
The stamp image from the Peaceful Pines Stamp Set. I stamped in Cucumber Crush and then using my Aqua Painter, I added some watercolored ink to the tree. Absolutely love having a matching framelit for this tree too! Makes it so easy!
Using the Washi Tape as a layer. This gold striped version from the Winter Wonderland Designer Washi Tape.
Few of the my favorite things on the second project:
Gift Bag Punch Board - need I say more? It is a must have!
The Gold Satin Ribbon as the backdrop to the tag. Love working with this ribbon!
I used the Christmas Greetings Thinlits "Jolly" and cut out the double L's for just a simple JOY. Leave enough of it to glue them together using the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Thanks for stopping by my post for the Creation Station blog hop!
Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.

Beautiful! I love that you used Smokey Slate in your color combo, gorgeous set with this bundle. I didn't get this one so I am beyond happy that it's going to still be available!
