November Hop with Skipping Stones

We are heading into the holiday season and there is so  much to be thankful for. But I am mostly thankful that the elections are over. Whatever the outcome, we all have to make the best of it.. And after having a bad case of the ? flu/strep throat, I am ready to be creative again. You should have arrived here from Jessie's blog. She has a fabulous card with the cutest holiday image !! Here's a hint -- Meow !!

If you would like to win a SSD stamp set of your choice, please check out all of our projects and leave a comment on each, like our Facebook page, and subscribe to the Skipping Stones Design blog. There are some amazing stamp sets for the holiday season !! Take a look at all the fantastic stamps in the Skipping Stones store  HERE.

For the Hop today, I wanted to get into the holiday spirit and Think Snow... Not that I want any, but it is beautiful and does make for a great card. Any reason to use glittery paper !!

  • I started with a Kraft card base and cut some silver and white glitter paper into hills. Before adhering them, I stamped one of the cute snowmen ( or snow-women ) from the Sassy Snow stamp set onto the card base in the exact spot I had chosen to match with the hills. I used Memories Black India Ink.
  • Using a square of paper from my Merry Little Christmas paper pad by My Mind's Eye, I placed 3 cute little trees on the left side of the card behind the hills.
  • A strip of paper - also from Merry Little Christmas- was adhered to the top of the card and I placed turquoise, pink and green rhinestones across the  scallop border. Gold rhinestones were also used at the top of the trees.
  • Copic atyou Spica Glitter markers added some shimmer to the scarf, mittens and nose. Several snowflakes from my embellishment stash completed the card.
Your next stop is the amazing Martha Lucia whose creation reminds me of the colors in a crayon box !! Enjoy as we all share our creativity with you during this Blog Hop...
