Stamp TV Alumni Inspirational Hop

If you came from Giovana's  blog, you are at the right spot. Wasn't her card beautiful! So that you don't miss a single one of the inspirational projects, you can start at Stamp TV.  Carolina at Stamp TV challenged us with this pic:
Here is my first card:

 Stamp sets were:  Winter Friends (holly, bird), Holiday Cheer (ornament, snowflake, stocking) and Blessed is the Season (joy) - I did some masking to get just the joy to show.  Used various circle punches and scraps of Christmas papers.


Have you ever started on a card with great inspiration and then your card/project ends up NOTHING like your inspiration?  Well, this is one of those cards.  It turned out nothing like I wanted it to.  LOL!  I had fun anyway and I got one more Christmas card made!  Here is my card:

Gina K's Light of the Season(snowflake), frame is from Winter Mittens and the sentiment is from Holiday Greetings.  The cardstock is Gina K's Baby Blue that I sponged with white ink, let it dry; embossed the snowflakes with glitter; made the rolled felt flowers, added a few pearls to the centers and stamped the sentiment, then placed it on felt cut with nestabilities.

Now pop on over to Karen's  blog.  She will wow your socks off with her card and then when you have finished the whole hop be sure to leave a comment at Stamp TV.  Thanks for leaving a comment here, I appreciate your time!

Have a Happy Stamping day!
