Hampton Art and Cheery Lynn Designs Holiday Blog Hop




Welcome to Hampton Art & Cheery Lynn Designs Holiday Blog Hop Week! We are so excited to be swapping product with such an awesome company!

This hop has a holiday theme and we’ve chosen some of our best products to be showcased by some fantastic designers to give you a bundle of inspiration all week long. We are celebrating the holidays and I have a few cards to share with you today!! As I was making my first card using the Buttons #2 Cherry Lynn Designs die, a couple other ideas came to me and I just had to give them a try!

But first the card that started it all! I stamped 6 small snowflakes and used one button to die cut them out. I added a bit of twine to each button and set them aside.

Next I made my own glitter paper, with a adhesive sheet of paper and glitter. I trimmed the glitter paper to fit my cardbase and then added a solid blue piece along the bottom.


I then stamped the sentiment Let it Snow…BUT I had to mask of each word to stamp the sentiment all in one line. Its super easy, just use a little scotch tape!!


I added some twine around the glitter/cardstock panel and tied it in a bow. I also added some twine to each button center. Last I adhered the buttons to the glitter paper and adhered the panel to my cardbase.

So after make the above card, I decided to die cut a bunch (and I mean a bunch) of buttons from christmas pattern paper. I made the next two cards from these buttons.

To keep this post from be extra, extra long I’ll just make a few comments about each one! But if you have any questions please feel free to email me!


This card I just stamped the sendiment and added a bunch of buttons across the card. Last I added a little glitter glue to add a little sparkle!


For my last card I just threaded random buttons on some twine and when I had enough I looped the twine and buttons to make a wreath. I but the wreath on pattern paper and stamped Noel in the middle! The Colorbox dye ink i used for the sentiment is called Putty and its pretty light, but i didn;t want to use brown ink, so i stamped the sentiment multiple times with the Putty ink.
