We are so excited to begin the  Add a Little Dazzle and Stampendous Blog Hop!  We have an amazing line up of holiday inspiration and can’t wait to share it with you.  Whether you are looking for card ideas ideas, home decor ideas, or gift ideas, you will find a great assortment of projects that will inspire your creativity.  
Both the Add a Little Dazzle and Stampendous Design Team will share some amazing projects with you. In addition, we will be giving away lots and lots of prizes from both companies.  Make sure to get the full scoop on how you can enter and join in on the fun.



My project features the Christmas Cottage rubber stamp from Stampendous and I've used an Add a Little Dazzle craft metal sheet to create the spotlight tag.  The image has been stamped in Versamark and I've embossed it in navy.  The tag was cut once in the craft metal and once in a heavier card stock to create a firm backing.  It's been stamped, heat embossed in silver and popped up on foam tape.  A pop of red for the holly berries and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  SU! Real Red, misc. heavy card stock and Brushed Silver
Stamps:  Stampendous Christmas Cottage
Ink:  Versamark
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Add a Little Dazzle Midnight Blue craft metal sheet, tag die, navy embossing powder, silver embossing powder, heat gun, Xmas Red Stickles, foam tape

Challenges entered:
(new Christmas Cottage rubber stamp)
NBUS#2:  Christmas
