Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Wonderland Blog Hop that is running from November 15 - 18.  If you have arrived here by way of Charmagne's creative blog, then you are at the right place. If not you might want to start at the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog so that you can leave a comment on every designer's blog to be able to win some fun prizes! I cannot believe that Christmas is almost upon us! So we have created some Christmas and winter cards to get you into the spirit! I hope you will stop and leave a comment on each designer's blog and get inspired along the way! Now on to the two cards I made. On the first card I used this sweet little Christmas bird image called Nestle in for Christmas 0342-119P. On the left side of the card I used 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape SAT11, added Cloud Nine velvet glitter GM2000 to it and adhered the gold outline ornament stickers to the glittered area. Next I colored inside the ornament stickers with copic markers. I used the Spellbinders ornament die to cut out the bird that I pop dotted to the card. You can see full instructions by clicking here.



On my second card I used this lovely Candle Centerpiece 0510-198N image. I decided to make a window using a die to have it look like you are peering into a warm and cozy home around Christmas time! You can click here for the full instructions.


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. Be sure you visit all the designer's blog and leave a comment so that you will be able to win some wonderful prizes! Now hop on over the blog of the very talented Cammy!
