Whiff of Joy Christmas Blog Hop!

Hi and welcome to Whiff of Joy Stamps' Christmas Blog Hop! If you came from Kartharina's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop here. Since the team members are from different countries, there is bond to be some posting time confusion. So please check back if one of the card hasn't been posted yet. =) Don't forget to leave comments along the way since each of the design team members is giving away the stamp that they featured on their projects. AND there is a huge overall prize, but more on that later. On to my card for the hop. =)

Ahhh.... What's better than a cup of hot chocolate in a cold winter night? I just adore this stamp! =) There will be a mini version of this stamp being release December 1st, too!

This image is called Henry Mouse with Large Teacup and it's stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock. It's then colored with Copic markers and cut and embossed using a Labels One die. This will be the stamp that I am giving away, so don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win! =)

I stamped one of the scrips from Essential Backgrounds - Text Style on the card base with VersaMark ink before I attached one of the patterned papers. The sentiment from Very Vintage Christmas set is also stamped before I embossed the card front with a snowflake embossing folder. The card is then spritzed with Mister Huey's Calico White mist for a subtle "snowy" look. The patterned paper is from Season's Greetings collection by Echo Park.

That's all from me. It's time to send you to Angie's blog! I can't wait to see what she created for the blog hop! Again, remember to leave comments along the way. Each design team member will be giving away the stamp that she featured and in the end the super sweet Karharina is giving away a yearly subscription to the StampKit 2012!!! WOW! How awesome is that? You have until December 5th 3am PST (December 5th, 12PM GMT+1) to finish the hop. So go on and keep hopping! =)

Have fun and thanks for stopping by!
