Hawaii Ink Holiday 3D Project Blog Hop!

Welcome to our Blog Hop. You've made your way here from Sue Gilroy's Blog.  Wasn't her project awesome? It always is! 

Our Hawaii Ink Group is comprised of 118 demonstrators from all over the world. Yes, I said world!  We have girls in Hawaii, Morocco and Germany!  Most of the demonstrators in our group are hobbyists meaning they signed up for the awesome 20% discount on all their beloved Stampin' Up! products.  There's no better way to shop unless it's at a discount, right?

My project, despite how many times I photographed it, different lighting, different angles, just wouldn't photograph without some glare on the glass. I'm sorry about that.

 This is an 8"x10" picture frame that I purchased on clearance at Ross.  It's quite sturdy and really sets off the soft blue hues of this holiday sampler. 
 I only made this one..I should have made more because I'm in love with it! 
Not sure I can part with it!
 Pictures don't do the colors and silver glimmer paper justice!
Punches really made this project easy to create, along with the Big Shot Typeset Alphabet Bigz die cut letters.  The images are from random stamp sets; Best of Christmas, Christmas Collectibles, Loving Thoughts and Greetings of the Season.  The colors are comprised of Island Indigo, Whisper White, Pool Party and Smoky Slate...oh, and of course, the Silver Glimmer Paper. I had to add some bling - Rhinestones...of course! 

Come back tomorrow and watch my "Make It Monday" video. I'm focusing on a paper crafting technique called "Mirage". You won't want to miss it!

  1. Love it…seriously LOVE it! What a beautiful piece, Lisa!

    1. Thanks, Jen. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out but your kudos mean a lot coming from a Stampin' Up! Artisan team member!

  2. Very nice glittery project. I like the way you spaced out the letters and it is well balanced with other embellishments.

    1. Thanks, Sue. The picture really doesn't do it justice!
