Hearts of the West Blog Hop

Welcome to the Hearts of the West Team monthly Blog Hop!

In this blog hop today, we are featuring the very beautiful CTMH paper pack "Oh Deer".  
You will find this paper pack in the Holiday Expressions Mini Catalogue.

If you came from Corrina Murphy's blog , then you are on the right track. This is a circular blog hop so you can start anywhere. Just in case you get lost, the full list of participants can be found at the bottom of this post. 

To make this shaker card, I used the piece of sea glass patterned paper in the "Oh Deer" set, for the inside of the shaker.

Then I ran a piece of sea glass card stock through an embossing folder, lightly rubbed the top of it with White Shimmer Delicata ink, and stamped it in Golden Glitz and White Shimmer Delicata ink using  the A1190, All is Bright stamp set.  I finished the card stock mat by splattering it with watered down gesso.

The Poinsettias were cut on the cricut using a flower from Anna's Winter Wonderland cartridge.  They were sponged with Golden Glitz Delicata ink.  The pine needle branches are from the CTMH Flower Market cartridge.

The shaker itself was cut in several layers:  White daisy, "Oh Deer" sea glass, white foam, acrylic window, and finished off with the beautiful CTMH White Glitter paper.  The ornament shape of the shaker was made with the Sizzix Bigz Chandelier Ornament die.  "Joy" was cut out of  CTMH Gold Glitter paper using a Penny Black die from the "Greetings" set.  The card was finished off with a bow made from CTMH White and Gold ribbon

 "Oh Deer" has been a delight to work with... it is so bright and pretty.!

I am the last one on the hop, but if you started somewhere in the middle, head over to Nancy Klein's blog to see what she has created with "Oh Deer"!

I hope you enjoy yourself on this hop and find lots to inspire you.  Thank you for stopping by today!
