Holiday Additions Blog Hop


I am oh so excited about the blog hop we have planned for you today!!! If you hopped your way here from Jackie's blog, you are on the right track! If not, you may want to go back to the TSG Blog to get all the details about the Blog Hop Challenges and find out how you can win the new set that we are previewing today!!

After the release of Home Sweet Home and HSH Halloween Additions, I was bombarded by requests for a Holiday Additions set! How could I say no to that??? HSH Holiday Additions is a 6x8 in. set that has a total of 42 stamps and will sell for only $23! Not only are there a ton of images that are perfectly sized to accompany your fireplaces in Home Sweet Home but there are also larger images that can be used independently for even more versatility. I tell ya, you are going to love it!

I had so much fun creating my project to show you today! I say 'project' because it started out as a card but when I was finally done with all my layers it was 6x6.25 in. big lol! No worries though because this will look great hanging up on the wall for the holidays :)

I used a total of 18 stamps for this card!! 17 of those are from the new HSH Holiday Additions set!!! Think you can find them all? ;)Did I mention that you are going to love this set?? All of the images are stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and water colored with SU inks.


The next stop on this fabulous hop is my girl Jessie!

Stamps: Home Sweet Home, HSH Holiday Additions
Paper: Chocolate Chip, White, Riding Hood Red (my very last piece *sniff*), Old Olive, White watercolor paper, DP by 3 bugs in a rug
