Stylin' Stampin' Blog Hop: December

It's time for another blog hop!  If you are just starting out...the list of blog hop participants is at the bottom of this post.  If you are joining me from Darcy's blog...WELCOME!  Aren't her projects so cute?!
This month we are focusing on Holiday Items.  I didn't have time to create a 3D item this month so I am showing you 3 Christmas cards that I have recently made.  I am in the process of getting ready for my Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack...2 out of 3 of these cards are for that event!  I hope you enjoy!
I started this card with a Crumb Cake card base.  The chevron pattern was embossed on vellum and stapled to the card base.  I used the Festival of Prints DSP Pack to create the tree...just free-handed the triangles with scissors.  I love the finishing touch of the silver glimmer star!  Don't you?
Tree idea from Pinterest.

This little penguin from the No Peeking stamp set is one of my very favorites of the season! 
I started this card with a Cherry Cobbler card base.  I used the First Edition and Be of Good Cheer DSP packs.  I colored the penguin stamp using markers and then stamped and cut it out.  He's kind of a hard one to cut out but he is one of those stamps that just calls out for it! 

My last card this month was also inspired by Pinterest!  Love this sketch!
I started this card with a Gumball Green cardstock base.  The designer papers come from the Be of Good Cheer DSP pack.  And don't you just love these Handmade Holidays Stitched Felt Ornaments?!  I think they just add the perfect touch to this (or any) card!
Please make sure to stop by Terry's blog next and continue on through the whole hop.  There are such great projects out there today!

Oh, these are super cute and totally reproducible! I still need to make our own family holiday cards. Perhaps I should steal one of these ideas. :)

Shellie G. said...

I like all of your cards but I think my favorite one is the tree. Although... the penguin card is really cute too. :)

Heidi @ Stuck on Stampin said...

These cards seem like great ways to use up all those little scraps of DSP I can't bear to throw away! ;) Love that "No Peeking" penguin, too. Just wish I would have gotten that set before it was too late...too many stamp set options! :)

Nancy Berg said...

Such beautiful cards! I will never throw out another scrap of DSP! ;-)
