Christmas Card Hop by Nicolette - Day 2

*Scroll down a post for the Christmas Paper Piecing Blog Hop*

Good morning everyone!  I hope you are all in a blog hopping mood cause I am in TWO blog hops this weekend! Oh yeah, blog candy you ask??? Well of course!  I never know what I'm sending out so it'll be a surprise.  All you have to do is leave a comment and become a follower.  Please leave a way for me to contact you as well.  Oh, and I must ask you to be patient.  It takes me a while to get things together sometimes, but I promise, you will receive it and remind me if you want!  I don't mind! ;)

Alright now if you arrived here from the Queen of the Hop herself, Nicollete from Beyond Scrapin' you are in the right spot!  If you just happened upon my blog today (thank you), please go back to Nicolette's post because well, isn't the beginning the best place to start in a hop?

Well, this hop is as it says... Christmas cards!  I don't care how many ideas I have, I can always use some inspiration and new tips & tricks!

Again, this is just paper and stickers really. I just added lots of layers (some were paper and some were stickers) and some outlines and faux stitching (with my white gelly pen) and voila`!
My favorite part is the tree!  I decided to use a border sticker as garland so I inked around the edges and cut it up, then placed on the tree to look like garland, then I used Glossy Accents for the star and pop dotted that on.  Isn't that snowman sticker just fun?  I also love the two background papers together.  I love using non-traditional colors/items for holiday cards.  It just makes it all that much more unique!

This is another card I made last year. The materials came from the Basic Grey Jovial card-of-the-month kit from December 2010.  It's one of my favorite holiday lines ever.  The paper is still available from my Memory-Works store, along with some other embellishments and things from this line so if you like it, please email me (amyjrockstar at gmail dot com) and I'll get you the info!  I can promise my prices are some of the best on the Web. (Do people still call it that?) I don't have my own site yet, but I can get you a catalog or send you to the main site with my information.

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to enter for blog candy!  Your next stop is one of my favorite bloggin', scrappin' gals... Kari with PurpleFuntastic Creations.  That gal loves hops as much as I do! ;)  We've been in lots together and I'm sure we'll be in more!  Can't wait for the next one Kari!

Be sure to go back and catch yesterday's posts if you missed 'em for more chances to win and more creations!

XO ~ Amy Jo

P.S.  Don't forget the other hop!
