December Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to this month's blog hop!  Our topic is Winter/Christmas and I have some fun projects for you!  I decided to try to use up some miscellaneous accessories I have, the Mica Flakes and Frosted Sequins.  Which means I have some fun shaker cards for you!  As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 4 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Create with Cheryl. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

So here are my shaker cards, first up is a fun tree card using the fabulous tree framelit from the Santa's Sleigh bundle:

I started with a Garden Green card base and added a layer of Whisper White that had been embossed with the Falling Softly embossing folder.  I cut the tree out of that and placed a window sheet behind it.  The on the Garden Green base, I did adhere some fun patterned paper from the Warmth and Cheer DSP stack.  I filled the space with the green mica flakes and locked them in with the foam strips, which are great since they can bend around the spaces.  I added some more DSP and layered on my sentiment.  

This one is my favorite.  I used the Flurry of Wishes stamp set with some non-traditional Christmas colors; Sweet Sugarplum and Soft Sky.  I punched the snowflakes out then stamped them through the holes.  I layered the back of the Soft Sky with the window sheets and made two sections with the foam strips for my sequins to shake in.  I added a big snowflake in the corner in Sweet Sugarplum and some additional little flurries in Soft Sky.  I also added some sequins on the card front as well.  I love how this turned out!  

I was happy I got a chance to do this card.  I haven't really done too much with the bells, and this turned out better than I had hoped it would.  The gold mica flakes had me thinking about a shiny bell.  I added some holly leaves and bows from the Holly Berry Happiness bundle.  I decided to use some Warmth and Cheer DSP for the background, I love this argyle pattern.  


Next up is Diana.  She has a wonderful eye for fabulous details so I can't wait to see what she has created today!
