House of Cards Blog Hop!

Hello Everybody!

It is time for the House of Cards Blog Hop!  We are making cards using this festive photo inspiration:



A big thank you to our sponsors!

There are prizes so please make sure you leave a comment for everybody! :)

You should have arrived here from Karen's blog-Karen's Crafting Obsessions.

Here's your hop order~

 House of Cards Challenge Blog

                              Katy *** You are here

For my first card I used 2 stamps from Great Impressions Stamps.  I used Christmas Gracie K100 and this Merry Christmas stamp.  I chose this Gracie because I could color her dress pink-taking the colors from the photo as my inspiration. :)


For my next cards I used MHK Designs.  These are fun vintage designs with awesome papers to match!  These are the sets that I used:



Here is my first card:


This card is small 3.5 X 4 inches.  But I loved the sentiment and papers so much.  I was inspired by the gifts in the photo so I thought it would be cool to make the card a gift.  The paper and sentiment are from MHK Designs.

My next 2 cards feature something in common:



I used my Minc machine from Heidi Swapp to change the images from black to foiled.  I works with a laser printer-so the ski is the limit.  The minc machine is awesome! :)

The colors help to inspire the first card.  The red from the presents and the gold around the presents.  

The last card is foiled red and I love this sled!  But there's not sled in the picture?  Those presents had to get there somehow right?

I hope that you have enjoyed my cards.  Check out Lilian's beautiful cards. 

Be sure to leave a comment.  Thank you for coming by!  Until next time my friends...good night! :)
