Creation Station Blog Hop - Specialty Paper

Hello and welcome, if you have come from the talented Denita Wright-Smee who is also from Australia or you may of started with me. Please make sure you hope around and see everyone's projects. I'll pop a link at the end of my blog....

The design team at Creation Station are presenting their projects with the theme "Specialty Paper" I've used the new Ever Eden 12" x 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper and Cork 12" x 12" Specialty Paper for my creations. 

The Ever Eden Specialty DSP is part of the Eden's Garden Collection which is an exclusive early release which consists of Eden's Garden Bundle 10% off (Eden's Garden Stamp Set and Eden Dies) which is part of the Stampin' Up! Mini Jan - June 2022 Catalogue. The stunning Ever Eden 12 x 12 DSP, Ever Eden 12 x 12 Cotton Paper and Garden Gems are only available while supplies last. I was so excited when I received my order and just how stunning the Specialty Paper is. I just had to buy two! I love the different tones of Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen and the addition of Gold Foil through out the paper.

I've also used the Cork 12" x 12" Specialty Paper which is from the Stampin' Up! Mini July - December 2021 Catalogue. I love it's nature inspired look and it also has gold flecks throughout. You receive 2 sheets and it's perfect for adding layers, scrapbooking, card making, die-cutting and more!

3D Christmas Wreath Treat Box

When I started creating my projects it was the Scalloped Kraft Treat Box that was my inspiration to begin with. Using both of the Specialty Papers they balanced well against the Kraft Box with the gold polka dots and the stunning Gold Shimmer Ribbon.

I've cut the Ever Eden DSP to cover the top of the box and wrapped the Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the box. The next layers are Tailor Made Dies, I've added Stampin' Dimensionals under the DSP, so the ribbon can be removed. 

Next I've used the wreath die which is from the Seasonal Swirl Dies in the Cork and Ever Eden DSP layered over the tags. I added a few of the Cherry Cobbler round Garden Gems to the wreath for a little sparkle.

The greeting fits perfect using the Eden Dies. The sentiment is from Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set and is heat embossed using Versmark Ink, Gold Stampin' Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. This was the only stamping I did when creating my projects.

Christmas Wreath Card

Starting off with Evening Evergreen Cardstock for the card base, layered with a panel of the Ever Eden 12" x 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper and I added a circle die-cut from the Layering Circle Dies as my base for the wreath.

I just love a Christmas wreath and the small leaf die from the Eden Dies is perfect! Using the Ombre sheet side from the Ever Eden 12" x 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper and with lots of die-cutting, you'll be able to make a wreath too. I also added a few of the Cork 12" x 12" Specialty Paper to add some contrast. To finish off the wreath I added Soft Succulent marquise Garden Gems

Next I used the label die from Eden Dies in Cork Specialty Paper and for the greeting I used the Playful Alphabet Dies using the Ever Eden Specialty Paper. To give the letters some height I've used Foam Adhesive Sheets.

Christmas Gift Tag

A last minute addition to the trio of my creations. As I had a few pieces left over I wanted to create a Christmas Gift Tag using both of the Specialty Papers and Tailor Made Tags Dies.

The addition of the trio of Christmas trees which are from the Christmas Trees Dies they are so cute! The greeting is using the Ombre sheet from the Ever Eden Specialty DSP, Playful Alphabet Dies and Foam Adhesive Sheets.

The Christmas tag is finished off using the Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon and White Baker's Twine.

The best thing about this stunning paper from Eden's Garden Collection is you can use it for any occasion and with the festive season coming up soon it's perfect for paper crafting. All of the above products are available in my online store.
