Peace on Earth

Hi everyone!  So today I guess I'm the hostess with the mostess LOL!  Not sure I have the "mostess" part down but I'm trying.  Spent a good portion of my time at the vet's yesterday with some of my sick with a bladder infection, one with an eye infection & one with a cold..oy vey! That's the bundle of fun you get when you have 8 animals, so I'm a bit thrown off my schedule & frazzled but I'm working to get back on track LOL.  BUT I have a peaceful, calming holiday card for you today!  And make sure to read the details of the hop to WIN ok!  I'll be back on Saturday with a new post for ya too, so check back!  ~hugs, Suzanne


Happy Holidays from everyone at the Blog Hop for Sean & Regina!  Thank you for playing along in our December blog hop!  The Blog Hop with Sean & Regina features Gina K. Designs stamps only for our monthly blog hops!

This month, we are featuring the “12 Days of Christmas”.  Each blog hop designer will be hosting a day from December 13 – December 24 that will feature Christmas/Holiday cards from a Gina K. Designs stamp set.  A list of blog hop designers are listed in this post with the day they will be hosting.  You are invited to take part in each of the twelve days. Subscribe and comment on the hop designer’s blog hop for the day and at the end, the person who has completed the entire twelve days will win a wonderful GINA K. DESIGNS PRIZE PACK!


A Gina K. Designs Prize Pack including:

  • Gina K. Designs stamp set
  • Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury card stock
  • Gina K. Designs pattern paper
  • Brads
  • Ribbon
  • Embellishments

This card uses one of the newest Gina K sets called "Sentimental Holidays".  I have been wanting to do an all white holiday card for awhile...they are soooo DARN hard to photograph though.  I may re-take pics outside tomorrow so you can see the glitter and shine on this better.  Some of the layers were spritzed with Maya Road Spritz in Sparkle.  I embossed with a CB folder "D'vine Swirls".  The tree die is from La La Land Crafts and I coated each tree branch with tacky glue and then DecoArt Glamour Dust for sparkle.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Christmas at Sweet Stamping (Christmas)
Crafts & Me Challenges (Winter Wonderland)
Simon Says Stamps (Christmas)
365 Cards (oval & square)
Celebrate the Occasion (anything Christmas)
Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge (Christmas)
Make It Monday (anything goes)

 The sentiment and dove were stamped in Silver Metallic ink.  The oval background (Marianne Designs die) and sentiment mat (Spellbinders) were cut from Vellum for a sheer look and then I put Stickles around the sentiment and on the dove.  By layering with my pop-dots I created lots of texture so that each white layer pops from the next.  A few Bella Baubles in pearl finish it all off.
