Joy of Sets Last Blog Hop - Christmas Songs

A Partridge in a Pear Tree!

Hi there,

Welcome to my blog today and welcome also to the last ever Joy of Stamps blog hop. (Don't worry we have a new blog hop coming up in the new year but more of that in January!) Hopefully you have hopped here from seeing the amazing project by Mo Rootes.

Our theme for our December blog hop is Christmas Songs which gives a huge scope for interpretation but I knew immediately the song I would choose. It was the first thing that sprang to mind when I first saw the Arrange a Wreath stamp set in the Stampin Up catalogue.

So here is my card:

The partridge and the pears have been heat embossed in gold. And I have die cut the wreaths with the coordinating die set in two different greens. A scattering of red rhinestones completes the design.

As you can tell by the heading at the top of the post, I have been thinking that the title of this Christmas song is "A Partridge in a Pear Tree" and it has only just occurred to me that it is actually "The Twelve Days of Christmas" - I hope my card still qualifies for the theme of the hop!

I'll be back this week with a video showing you how I made my card - do pop back for that. And if you'd like to purchase any of the products I've used, you can pop over to my Online Shop HERE.

Meanwhile please do keep hopping around all the other blogs to see what amazing projects they have in store for you. Next up is the lovely Sue Allen. 

If you get lost en route, here are all the participants this month.


  1. Really lovely card Jill, love this set x

  2. Love it Jill! That heat emboss is amazing.

  3. What a lovely card - did you know that the song Partridge in a pear tree actually originated from the words "part of a Juniper tree" and over the years chinese whispers turned in into partridge! I'm full of useless info like this lol!

  4. Love your card, Jill!!!! The gold embossed pears and partridge are awesome. The 12 Day of Christmas is definitely a family favorite of ours! Thanks for the inspiration. x

  5. Brilliant interpretation of the brief, love it :-)
