Normally, this is our weekly challenge day and so to keep with tradition we are doing the Stampendous Blog Hop and Dazzling Diva Challenge #43.  Join us today, be inspired, and show off your beautiful creations this week. Let’s get started!

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 a panel for my gift bag.   The Scarlet Red craft metal sheet was stamped in StazOn with the Stampendous image.  Once that was completely dry, I used my refiner from the Add a Little Dazzle Embossing Tool Kit to outline all the leaves, berries and pinecones.  Next, I flipped the craft metal sheet over onto my suede and used a combination of the tools from the kit to "puff up" the leaves, berries and pinecones from the backside of the metal.  I then added some of the backing paste (yes, that's in the tool kit too) to both areas.  This ensure that your "puffed up" areas of metal stay just that way!  I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper and then added three shades of Stickles to the "puffed up" area.

The panel was adhered to my burlap bag with a Scor-Pal double-sided adhesive sheet.  A couple of buttons with some twine finished off the bag.

Here's what I used:
Ink:  StazOn Black
Stamps:  Stampendous Christmas Cottage
All the other stuff:  Add a Little Dazzle Scarlet Red craft metal sheet, burlap bag, Add a Little Dazzle Embossing Tool Kit, Corner Chomper, Scor-Pal double-sided adhesive sheet, MFT buttons, misc. twine, Peeled Paint Distress Stickles, Cinnamon Stickles and Xmas Red Stickles
