Welcome to the Kat Scrappiness Blog Hop and Sale!
This Blog Hop has been in the works for quite some time now!
We have so many generous sponsors who are taking part in this hop
and we are so glad you are joining us today!
Coffe Oasis is a coffee shop/organization located in Washington State that provides
help for our youth including programs for drug abuse, homelessness, violence and poverty.
You can read more about their programs here: https://thecoffeeoasis.com/youth-programs/
We are hoping that this blog hop will bring awareness to organizations such as Coffee Oasis and that we can raise a little money and support them! Kat Scrappiness has pledged to donate 15% of all sales proceeds to Coffee Oasis and our other sponsors have all donated prizes to give away to all of you blog and YouTube hoppers! Please visit them and show some support.
You can also donate directly to Coffee Oasis here: http://kskat.com/donate
Even if you can only donate $1 or $5 it doesn't matter because every little bit will help a kid in need.
The Kat Scrappiness design team has designed cards for the hop with a winter theme.
I made 2 cards for the hop using some of the new dies in the Kat Scrappiness store.
For my first card I used the Christmas Stocking Banner Die.
I die cut each stocking out of a different color paper and then embossed them with a vine pattern.
I cut them a second time out of white paper and cut off the top of each and added it to the original stocking to look like a cuff. For some extra interest I added glitter to each cuff and I put a glittered heart and a snowflake on each stocking. I popped each of them up on foam tape on to a kraft color card base that was embossed with the new Stitched Winter Swirl Backdrop Die.
To finish off the card I stamped the sentiment "Baby It's Cold Outside"
from the Merry Critters stamp set.
A few drops of glitter around the card to give the look of
falling snow and the card was finished.
For my second card I used the new Winter Crafters Essentials Dies.
I was going for a clean and simple design with the elegance of white glitter.
The Winter Crafters Essentials Dies have a very elegant trio of Christmas trees that I
thought would look beautiful cut out of white glitter paper.
I placed the sparkly trees against a kraft background that I die cut with the
brand new Stitched Snowflake Swirl Border Backdrop die. I splattered white paint
all over the panel to imitate falling snow.
For my sentiment I took the "Jolly" Brush Script Word and Sentiment die
and cut it out of white glitter as well but I left out the 2 L's
so I could create the word Joy. It's so nice to have a die that can be
used in a way it wasn't originally intended.
I enjoyed creating these 2 winter themed cards and the new dies in the shop
made it so easy to come up with fun and elegant designs.
I hope you'll hop along with us and check out all of the wonderful sponsors
who have donated prizes for this worthy cause!
