Time for another CSS Alumni blog hop - an inspiration challenge this time. The first photo was our inspiration this time.
If you are following the hop then you came to me from Peggy's blog - http://www.heartfullstamping.blogspot.com/2010/11/css-inspiration-blog-hop.html
where I am sure she had some wonderful eye candy for you!!!
My first card starts with a white card base which I did some faux stitching in red, then the red gingham DP with some faux stitching in white.
I then stamped and embossed with white, the snowflake from this months 'One free with three' set onto the DP.
I used this weeks sketch over at Stamp TV for my layout.
The phrase is from the Heirloom Ornaments set and the main image is also from the 'One free with three' set.
I colored the main image with prismacolor pencils.
The main image is cut out with the Spellbinders tree die and the phrase with a labels die.
My second card starts with a white base and same DP both are faux stitched in red. And again I used this weeks sketch from Stamp TV.
The main image is from the new 'Winter Mittens' set and both ribbons I bought this am (about 6am actually) at Micheals. I only went to 2 places this am - Micheals and A.C.Moore - and really the only reason I actually got up to go shopping is because my old meowing one woke me at 4 am and I couldn't get back to sleep :). Silly old cat is literally 20 years old and she didn't let us sleep much last night....
I cut out the mittens with the coordinating Spellbinders die and added some red and green rhinestones.
All for me today - off you go to Tina's place - http://www.tinagmemories.com/2010/11/css-inspiration-blog-hop.html
for more fabulous inspiration
