Verve Holiday Spotlight Hop- Day Three

Welcome back to Day 3 of Verve's Holiday Spotlight Hop!! Are you lovin' everything you've seen so far, I imagine so!! Today brings another group of fabulous sets and dies created by the Supreme Diva, Julee Tillman. Just LOVE how everything mixes and matches, with new and old sets. My first project uses the Santa's Helper set and I made a couple "gifty" bags.


Aren't they adorable?!?! Those sweet reindeer were stamped, colored with copics, paper pieced his/her hat, added a little rhinestone and popped onto oval nestabilities. The bags were made with Stampin Up's Fancy Favor die. Added a little ribbon and some of those "infamous" jingle bells- yes, I found mine. The sentiment is from Santas Helper and it was stamped on a Charming Oval die. 

Here's a close up of one of the bags.










I also have a card for you that I made using the Snowflake Tidings die and Verve's Glad Tidings set. Honestly, just wait till you see the full reveal of all of the dies....they can be used with so many of Julee's sets!! For this card, I made a pocket/tag combo as the center piece. The tag was made with Verve's Sweet Scallop die and added a little seam binding/twine/pearl. The snowflakes were stamped with crumbcake, one stamped off, and cut with the new Snowflake Tidings die {absolutely perfect} - some gold pearls in the centers.  














Here's the hop list for today.
