Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - Peace & Joy

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Peace & Joy Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration, so get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Jan Clothier's Blog. She has made some lovely projects!
Today, the team will be showcasing projects using the Peace & Joy Bundle, so be sure to check out all of the amazing inspiration! This set is so festive and has just so many possibilities for crafting all of those holiday crafts.  Here's a look at the set:
 My absolute favorite project I made was this dimensional Christmas ornament. They are prett simple to make. Here's what you need:
1. Use the Stitched Star Dies to cut out 3 stars from Balmy Blue Cardstock.
2. Emboss the stars with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.
3. Use the scoring blade on your Paper Trimmer to crease the center of each star and fold them in half.
4. Adhere one half of the first star to the half of the second star. 
5. Then adhere the other half of the first and second stars to both halves of the third star so that your left with a 3 dimensional star.
6. You can die cut a festive word from the Joy Dies and add a few sequins for more interest. I also added some Misty Moonlight Baker's Twine to hang the ornament.
My next project uses a lot of the same element and theme-ing. I added in some deeper blue tones by stamping some floral images in Pacific Point Ink and Balmy Blue Ink. The sentiment was a combo of the two inks.  
Here's a close-up of the effect:
My final card showcases the "peace" word die cut from Balmy Blue and Pacific Point Cardstock and layered on top of each other. One of the coolest aspects about this die set is all of the layering options it offers. I am easily able to create sentiments with shadowing effects.
This bundle was so much fun to create with and a great way to make fun, festive holiday projects for gifts, holiday cards, or parties. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs. Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages. They have some pretty amazing projects to share.
