Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop

Welcome to the Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop!  If you are looking for some inspiration for Christmas cards, you have come to the right place.  Our team does a monthly Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop! We will be sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month.

The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in our stash all ready to go for December 2019!

I used the Cool Buddies stamp set by Create A Smile Stamps.  This stamp set has been retired but there are other adorable Christmas sets in the Create A Smile shop!  I stamped the images on Neenah cardstock, colored them with copics, and then fussy cut them.  I used a black glaze pen on the penguin, snowman, and fox eyes and added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the snowman and fox noses, and the penguin's beak.  I used a white gel pen to add some white highlights.   I sponged Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks onto Bristol card using a wave stencil and added a sentiment from the Jingle Greetings stamp set by Mama Elephant.  I adhered the critters with foam tape and added some clear sequins to give my card some sparkle.

Please hop along and be sure to visit each of the blogs.  There's lots of inspiration and ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
