Sweet Pea Stamps Blog Hop!

 
Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Sweet Pea Stamps blog hop. Each of our wonderful designers have come up with creative ways to use a non-Christmas themed image to create a Christmas themed project! We hope to inspire you to work out of the box for each and every holiday with images you might not consider when crafting.

I chose Karen Middleton's stamp Wings of Hope.  First let me show you a card that I made using this beautiful stamp.  Here's a monotone pink card with this lovely maiden all in pink. Isn't she stunning?
 
 
Now here's a card where I took the same image and turned her into a Christmas card.  I chose to color her in white with some red wings and give her a glowing yellow aura.  I used gorgeous embossed white cardstock with lots of silver die cuts and metallic and embroidered Christmas ornaments.

Please visit each of our talented team members'... blogs and leave a little love - a comment on every hop post will enter you into a drawing for a $20 gift code to the Sweet Pea Stamps store! As an added bit of fun share the hop on Facebook tagging Sweet Pea Stamps for a chance for a $10 gift code to the Sweet Pea Stamps store! Winners will be chosen around the first of next week.

  3. Beautiful cards! Love the yellow burst on the lovely Christmas card! Also, think it's great that you shared both a non Christmas and Christmas card for this image to show the contrast. (Great shades of pink in the first card too.) :)

  15. Holley, what a stunning card you have made for the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog Hop. It's nice to be able to use generic images for Christmas cards. It makes them more cost-effective. It’s lovely to take part in the Blog Hop and see such a variety of creations. Wishing you a happy Christmas and all the very best for 2015, Kym xxx
