Stamp TV's First Customer Blog Hop


Hello everyone and happy Saturday!!!! We will be going to my DGS's flag football game this morning but I wanted to get my post up first....we stampers have our priorities, ya know...LOL!!!
This is my card for Gina K's Stamp TV November Customer Blog Hop Challenge. We will be playing along via Mr. Linky on Gina's Blog.
We were to make a card with either the StampTV Holiday Cheer kit or one of the new November release stamp sets. I used Melanie Muenchinger's Festive Frame set and the dove is from Rupa Shevde's The Magic of Christmas.
The frame image was stamped on the SEI WinterSong dp with Riding Hood Red. The poinsettias in the corners were stamped 3 times on Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding dp, cutout, and layered together with dimensionals. Pearls were added to the centers and Art Institute's Gala Glitz Red was added to the leaves. The center of the frame was cutout and another piece of the Wintersong dp was attached to the back so the trees and glittery snow showed through the opening. The dove from The Magic of Christmas set was stamped on white cs with Riding Hood Red and covered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The sentiment from Festive Frames was stamped onto a scrap piece of the glittery Wintersong dp with Riding Hood Red, punched out, and attached to the frame with dimensionals. The background red layer is the same paper as the poinsettias and the card base is Soft Sly.
Thanks for stopping by today....now head on over to Gina's Blog and check out all the challenge cards on Mr. Linky!!
