My Sneak Peek contribution to Thursday's blog hop!

Reminder:  If you plan on getting the 3D CD, it is easy as pie....
just click on the link on my sidebar!

Today is the fourth day of the Technique Junkie blog hop to showcase the new 3D and Fun Folds CD.  Design team members from both Mark's Finest Papers (a Heinrich Company) and the Technique Junkie Newsletter helped put together a fabulous blog hop for us today. 



If you have been following along already you should have come from Geri Utterback's blog.

If you are only starting here, please head back to the Technique Junkie Blog and go from there. You won't want to miss any stops along the way – in order to win you will need to comment on everyone’s blog AND Pat Huntoon’s Blog. There will be an additional chance to win by playing along in her Blog Hop!  See Tuesday's post for the Double Easel card tutorial so you can play along!

I used the Top Note Die project from the 3D and Fun Folds CD. All the images are from Mark's Finest Papers (a Heinrich company).  AND they are a Sneak Peek from a new set they have being released on Dec 13th called Snow and Ice. 

Here is the top/side view of this fun project.   The words, deer and snowflakes were stamped.  Then I embossed the trees with a sparkley embossing powder.  The whole top was sponged.  The snowflake cut out is their stamp in this set as well.  After I cut it out, it was embossed several times with clear to give it some weight, then decorated with the rhinestones and silver cording.  The icicles on the sides of the box are also part of this cute set. 

Here you can see the glittery appearance a little better.  Isn't that a lovely saying!  You are going to LOVE this new set.

 The inside of the box has a divider that was decorated with the snowflake stamp (stamped and embossed, then sponged).  You can put anything inside that you want.  Some put in candy! 
The bottom of the box has the same paper treatment as the box insert.
 

Your next stop on the hop is Lois Bak, but just in case there are any hiccups,  see the whole list of celebrants on this Blog Hop below!
As with most blog hops, there are prizes!  This one is no exception.  You will want to hop along and make comments on all the participating blogs.  The daily winner will be selected from one of the blogs, but no one but Pat (TJ's owner) knows which one!  The daily prize is product from the "company of the day".   PLUS, You will get one entry each day you comment for the GRAND PRIZE.  Read about the grand prize on Tuesday's post.  You can go back and see the other projects from the other days if you wish too.  The schedule is listed below.  You have until 11:59pm EST December 2nd to leave comments on as many blogs as you can to win the Grand Prize. 

On Saturday, December 3, Pat from Technique Junkie Newsletter will announce the winners from each company. Be sure to hop along on each day! There will be FIVE WINNERS!
