Die-Versions + Great Impressions: A Blog Hop


Welcome to the Die Versions + Great Impressions designers blog hop!! We've got both talented teams hopping today with a chance to win prizes from both of these craft suppliers!!

Our theme for this hop is "Tis the Season" so get ready to see some beautiful holiday creations!!

You should have arrived here from Leah Cornelius. If you haven't and would like to hop with us, please go back to the Die-Versions blog to see the entire hop list and to start at the beginning for the maximum chances to win!! There will be two lucky winners – Die-Versions & Great Impressions are each giving away one $25 Gift Card!! The more you comment, the more chances you have of winning!!

Here's what I created...


For my first card, I created a Santa owl in a tree branch using Die-Versions Build an Owl die :) The Branch with Bulbs is from Great Impressions. The bulbs were colored with Fired Brick Distress Markers and covered with Glossy Accents. The owl's eyes were also covered with Glossy Accents, and his beard and trim were cut with felt. Products used:

Die-Versions: Shapes Build an Owl; Wee Petites Button; Wee Petites Super Star; Sweet Wordlets Merry Christmas. Great Impressions: 9076 - Branch with Bulbs


For my second card, I used a Great Impressions Christmas Angel to deliver a message of peace in the form of a Die-Versions Holiday Word Ornament :) She was heat embossed with silver embossing powder and colored with Prismacolor Pencils. Her wings were covered with Sugar Coating. Products used:

Die-Versions: Whispers Holiday Word Ornament; Sweet Wordlets Merry Christmas. Great Impressions: 9354 - Christmas Angel.

Thanks for stopping by today!! Your next stop in the hop is Lori Kobular!! We hope you're inspired all along the way, and that you grab all the goodies used from the Great Impressions and Die-Versions stores!!
