Great Impressions Stamps + Echo Park Blog Hop

 
Happy Monday everyone! Welcome to the Great Impressions Stamps + Echo Park Paper Design Team Blog Hop! Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team and Great Impressions Stamps Design Team are showcasing projects from our latest collections. Be sure to follow the blog hop list below as you hop from one blog to the next. ONE winner will be selected from EACH blog to receive an Echo Park Paper collection kit of their choosing, and a set of two stickable stamps from Great Impressions Stamps.  To qualify for the kit and stamps, comments will be due by midnight EST, Sunday, October 21st to qualify for the drawing. The winner will be announced on each blog Monday, October 22nd so be sure to check back to see if you've won.

With Christmas right around the corner this hop comes at the perfect time for me. I created three Christmas cards with Echo Park's Very Merry Christmas line... a beautiful collection of traditional red + green, tan, brown, and silver. First up is a 4.5 x 5.75 inch horizontal card using the large ornament sticker:


I was also drawn to the large tree sticker on the Echo Park sticker sheet. I backed it on a sheet of silver snowflake paper and embellished the tree with gems and stickles. The sentiment is Great Impressions Stamps' Season's Greetings


My last card uses a lot of the smaller stickers from the included sticker sheet + some baker's twine by Stampin' Up!. The green chevron paper is so much fun to work with! And I love the little stars, holly, and letter stickers:


That's it for me! Wendy Sue is next on the hop & I know her project will be amazing! Thanks for joining us this week and make sure you leave a comment to be entered in our contest!
