Share It Sunday - July 2022

It's time for another Share It Sunday Blog Hop!  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world and we're sharing our projects with you as part of this blog hop.  There is no theme for our blog hop today. 

My card today features one of my favourites suites from the July to December Mini Catalogue - Sweetest Christmas.  I absolutely love the candy canes and the great diagonal stripped die that is included.  I stamped my candy cane in Sweet Sorbet in and then re-stamped in Versamark and covered with Clear Embossing Powder to give it the glossy look of a real candy cane.  Looks good enough to eat, right?  Check out my YouTube video on how to re-create this look yourself!
