If you've come here from our very talented blog hop organizer Carolina's blog then you're in the right place. If you didn't, you're invited to start hopping at the beginning and catch all of the fantastic inspiration from this talented group.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and Carolina gave us this FABULOUS photo for inspiration for this hop.
I'm a true traditionalist when it comes to Christmas colors - I love red and green with white together, so when I saw Carolina's photo I knew my cards would be purely traditional.
Here's my first card:
For this card I used GKD PL "All Spruced Up" for the card base, then layered with "Red Hot" and White. The stamps I used are GKD "Festive Frame" by Melanie Muenchinger. This is a beautiful set and it's perfect for the most traditional of all Christmas cards. I used Copic markers for coloring and Memento Ink for stamping the image. Although this photo doesn't pick it up too well, the centers of the flowers are embellished with gold bling. I also used the Sukura Gelly Pen to highlight the berries in the arrangement.
For my second card I had some fun with the "snowman" in the photo
I created this card by masking the snowman then stamping the tree image several times. I colored in the trees and areas on the snowman with Copic Markers. I used MS glitter for the snow effect.
Again, I used GKD PL CS "All Spruced Up" for the card base and layered with "Red Hot" and White. The stamp set is Gina K's newest winter set "Snow Much Fun", and it really is a fun stamp set to play with.
Thanks for stopping by. Now hop on over to the lovely and talented Giovana's blog and see her gorgeous creations.
