Helmar and Robin's Nest Christmas Blog Hop


Hi, I'm JJ Sobey and I'm a Helmar Designer.  So glad you've hopped on by during the Helmar / Robin's Nest blog hop!  You've probably just been to visit Michelle Cummings, and your next stop will be to visit Dawn Mercedes Barrett.  (Don't worry - full list and links are at the bottom of this post).



You can't beat the Helmar Gemstone Glue for clear embellishments like these Dew Drops.  It dries completely clear, and holds tough - those aren't going to shake off in the mail, that's for sure!


I added some Zap Dots to give my sentiment a little lift.



Thank you for visiting, and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Adhesives (Helmar):
Professional Acid Free Glue
Gemstone Glue
Zap Dots

Supplies:
Clear Mini Dew Drops - The Robin's Nest
PP, letters - Authentique
CS - Bazzill
lace tape - Love My Tapes
ink - Memento

Lovely card JJ - the colours, lace and Dew Drops look beautiful together!!!
I am a 450 Quick Dry addict but after hearing how securely the Gemstone Glue holds the Dew Drops in place, I have just added both to my shopping list :)

So cute

Robin Horasanian said...

The neutral dew drops on the tree are perfect. I don't know how to crochet so I probably wouldn't be able to use real lace but this is a very sophisticated card. Great for anyone celebrating with either a religious or "Santa" holiday!

This is so so lovely, JJ!!! :) I am really into the more neutral colors for Christmas, and this is pretty much the perfect color combo for me. The whole card is just so elegant and unique. :)

Kelli said...

Beautiful! I have got to learn how to use fabrics in my cards like that!!! It never looks quite right when I do it!!

redjanfan said...

very nice, the clear dew drops are subtle bling, I know, an oxymoron, but they are very pretty in an understated way.
