My Craft Spot Blog Hop!!

Yippie, it's finally here!!  My Craft Spot blog hop with tons of cuteness and prizes on every blog!  So make sure to visit each blog for a chance to win one of the new releases.   Scroll to the bottom for the hop line up, and the prize I will be giving away!

For my project today, I actually made two cards, same Santa, but different sizes and different stamps.  The cute Santa is the Merry Merry cut file from SVG Cutting Files, you can get it here.http://svgcuttingfiles.com/catalog.php?item=954


The first card was made with the Ornate Labels Metal Dies and stamped with the Ornate Labels - Christmas stamps all from My Craft Spot.   I added stickles, white flock, Liquid Pearls, Glossy Accents and Liquid Applique.





For the second card I used the Ribbon Banners - Arched Metal Dies and stamped it with Christmas Banner Sentiments.


The background paper was printed from my computer.
