Also each day we will have a guest designer or two for you to visit.
To start at the beginning of the hop, check out the guest designers and blog hop sponsors, you can head over to Honey Bearz Designs.   You should have hopped over from ASHLEY's blog, so now that you are here let's get started with today's project!

Hi everyone, Teresa here to show you today's Christmas inspiration project.

I am very excited each and every week to share some wonderful time with my friend who is living in Ireland right now. We Facetime twice a week...sometimes nothing gets accomplished other than chatting but our main focus and reason for Facetiming is to craft and create cards together. I so enjoy that time each and every week, I really don't know what I would do without this wonderful connection! Anyhow here are two cards I made recently.

Card #1 is a watercolor shaker card. All of the supplies I used can be ordered (if they are still available) from Scrapping for Less. I am the owner....heehee!

 I used a circle die to cut a window in the a card front, then traced a pencil line so I could determine where my image needed to be stamped. I stamped them and then used Post-It tape to stamp them on and cut it out so I could mask them off to be able to do the background. I used Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Tim Holtz distress inks and the mini round blending tool to create the sky and ground. I also used the falling snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp ( disclaimer: this did not come from Scrapping for Less...I really wanted it last year and no company that my supplier uses carried one. My Favorite Things recently came out with one though and I can get that brand.) I used texture paste and then embossed it with glittery embossing powder. Time to take off the mask...I watercolored the image with Gansai Tambi watercolor paints. Added some doodlebug sequins and shaker card was created! And oh, the stamp I used was a Darcie stamp called Chillin' with My Peeps!  

Card #2 came out amazing! I love it! I used Amy Rysavy (Prairie, Paper, and Ink for my inspiration) I did not have all of the same supplies but had similar paper, and similar stamps so I used those. Click on her name for the actual video where she created her card. I basically followed the same steps as she did so I won't go into a huge long dissertation of how I created the card.
