CSS Inspiration Hop

Hello and welcome to our final blog hop as the CSS Alumni Group. For our final hop we have a bright and snowy photo to use as our inspiration.

I took the colors and the abundant snow as my inspiration and used an older set called Winter Friends to make this Christmas card.

I hope you have time to travel the entire blog hop. Hopefully you came from Lori McAree's blog. If not, please start at the beginning over at StampTV and stop by all the CSS Alumni member's blogs to see how they were inspired by our snowy photo.


Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, December 24.

If you came from Lori's blog then your next stop is...

Owl Be There for You

I finally purchased a digi stamp I've been eyeing for a while. I adore owls and this stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps is just so adorable. I used the sketch from the most recent challenge over at Seize the Sketch. I love the simple layout.

The large chevron heart and sentiment are cut files from Silhouette. I also used the digi stamp to make a print and cut file. Much easier than fussy cutting the image. I also found some older embellishments, the olive metal corner brackets. I bought them years ago and never used them. I thought they looked perfect with the chevron heart. The paper is from a new pad of papers I bought on Friday. The pad is DCWV The Kidlet. I love the fun colors and designs in that pad.

Groovy Hello

I've been wanting to play along with MFT's sketch challenges for a while now, but always ran out of time. I finally had some time to use the sketch this week and broke out a stamp and die set that I purchased several months ago when it was on sale. Anyone out there that can relate to that? LOL! This card is for MFTWSC151.

I stamped cut the pocket out of dark gray card stock and stamped it with the stitching outline. Then I added some swirls and flowers. In place of the die cut border of the sketch I stamped various flowers and vines on the white panel and then embossed it with a chevron folder. I love this color combo and how the whole thing turned out.
