RRD First Thursday Christmas in August Blog Hop

We have an exciting month in store for you at Red Rubber Designs. It is going to be all about Christmas. We would like to start the month with a blog hop to show you the different ways the Design Team has used our Spotlight Stamp, Holiday Wreath.

Holiday Wreath
Spotlight Stamps are always 40% off with any order. Want to see all of the featured releases for August?  You can find them here.

We also have a little contest for you tonight.
It looks like one of Santa's elves has been causing a little mischief in the workshops and craft areas of our Design Team members.  Look closely at each project on the hop and you will see that said elf has left a little image of his jolly employer on one of the Design Team member's creation.

Find the picture of Santa then let us know where you found it (whose blog).
Email your name and the name of the blog where you found the picture of Santa to .
Every correct answer will be entered into a random draw for the Spotlight Stamp Holiday Wreath.
Contest ends Sunday, August 5 at midnight (CDT).  Good luck.


Here is my project using the featured stamp Holiday Wreath. I needed a new book for my Christmas card list. I found the wreath stamp to be perfect for the cover.

I dry embossed the cover then inked over it with gold, red, and vintage photo inks. I added a little gold bling and ribbon from the Reese and Woodrow collection. This photo was taken outside and shows the natural softness of the colors.

I took this photo inside with light reflecting off of the gold embossing so you could see how pretty it shines.

The inside has 2 dividers, one for family and the other for friends. All papers are from Red Rubber Designs and are listed with links at the end of the post.

 Here is a little ornament that I made with the Holiday Wreath set stamped on white shrink plastic.

Your next stop will be at Creative Stamping with Paula-Kay. Enjoy!

Beautiful book. I love the gold and burgundy together and the old fashioned Santa is perfectly framed in the wreath. Love it!

Both very beautiful, elegant projects. Holiday Wreath stamped in gold is beautiful!

Maybe I'll be able to make such wonderful vintage looking projects someday! ;D
