We're so glad you stopped by.  We'd love it if you became a follower and stop
back daily for a new challenge and a new card or two. 

Now on with today's projects...

For this card I thought I would do something totally untraditional and go with a black and white theme. I was thinking winter at night for this card. I grabbed my Lovely As A Tree stamp set from Stampin’ Up and add the trees to the forefront using white pigment ink by WPlus9. I then added the snowflakes using Hero Arts Holiday Sayings stamp set and the sentiment stamp is from   Sentiments stamp set by Justrite. I heat embossed the sentiment  and backing paper in Ranger silver embossing powder to add a little dimension.  ~Amy

I took a SVG file from Miss Kates Cuttables and copy / pasted the solid back outline of the file , then riversed one and welded them together so I made a front and back out of the shape. Then I added the rest of the wording and topped it off with some iridescent Stickles on the snow.  ~Anna

I used paper and stickers from a kit from Carta Bella called Warm and Cozy. 
 I love Carta Bella paper and the kit makes things go together really quickly. ~Denise

Easy peasy card!  I embossed white cs with snowflakes and spritzed with sapphire and lavender mist sprays.  I blew it dry, die cut my snowflakes, die cut my Thank You, and added some pop dots for dimension and some rhinestones for "snow".  ~Gracie

Gracie also did a bonus for you and made this absolutely adorable double-page layout.

This card was designed using a gift tag off of one of my Christmas gifts. I love penguins for Christmas so I didn't want to throw this cute tag away. I used lawn fawn stamps, distress inks, sticklers, wink of Stella, close to my heart ink, pop dots, sponge & adhesive to make the card. ~Jennifer

I made this adorable little exploding box card from a cut file I purchased on the Silhouette Design Store.  I used Bazzill blue card stock and Vellum card stock from Stampin' Up.  I used Soft Suede, also Stampin' Up, for the dear.  I'm not sure for what occasion I will give this card, so I haven't added and sentiment as yet.  When I do, I will create an internal offset of the side panel(s) and type the sentiment on the same vellum and run it through my Silhouette. ~Kim

We hope you enjoyed the hop today.
