November Technique Blog Hop: Silver and Gold

This month's technique blog hop is featuring the very festive colors of silver and/or gold, and Close To My Heart has gorgeous products to choose from.  (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Melissa's blog.  From here, you'll visit Cat's blog next to continue along the hop.)

I decided to create two simple cards featuring some of our silver products.

This card uses 1.25" squares of silver foil paper and patterns from Wonderland paired with the Pumpkin Spice Scrapbooking stamp set and Thin Cuts (still available online).  The silver foil squares look dark gray thanks to the lighting, but hopefully you can image how "icy" this card is in person!  I also used silver glitter gems as added embelishments.

This card is an attempt to make a fast and easy (but still pretty) holiday card.  I used the Holly & Ivy Scrapbooking stamp set, stamped in Charcoal, with silver shimmer trim (you could use silver glitter paper), silver foil paper, and silver embroidery thread.  I might go back and add some silver glitter gems also.

Thanks for stopping by on the Silver and Gold Technique Blog Hop!  Please leave a comment before hopping on to Cat's blog next.


  1. I love the simplicity and use of the silver, which looks great on your cards!

  2. Both your cards are great! I love the squares!

  3. The first card is my favorite! With two of my favorites (the sweater AND Wonderland), I’m hooked!

  4. I love how unexpected the silver is until it catches the light!

  5. The holiday card is my favorite, so simple and elegant!


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
