Clear Dollar Stamps August Blog Hop

It's time for our monthly blog hop for Clear Dollar Stamps!! Hopefully you arrived here from Jerusha's blog, I Love Paper Crafting. If not, please head on over to the beginning of our hop at Lori's blog, Clearly iStamp, so you don't miss out on the fun, inspiration, and chance to win some prizes!!! The theme for this month's blog hop is "These are a few of my favorite things." Yes, me too, I'm singing that song as I'm typing this post!!!!! Anyway, let me tell you about some of my favorite things when it comes to card making...I love making Christmas cards, especially using non-traditional colors. I also am lazy, so solid stamps are an all-time must on my list of faves! I also love Basic Grey's designer papers, ribbon, pearls, lots and lots of layers, popping up those layers, the cute 4.25" square card, and, oh yeah, sewing!!!! That is pretty much everything included on this card! The stamp set I used is CDS's Our Savior's Birth, the colors of card stock are Bravo burgundy, Pretty in pink, and Bashful blue and the designer paper is Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey.

Now to see some fabulous cards, hop on over to Lisa's blog, Lisa's Life Lines, and thanks for hopping with us today.

Christmas is my number one holiday choice for so many reasons! And your design on this card just shines. I love the silhouette of the wise men... Beautiful! And I can definitely relate to loving pearls. A card just doesn't seem dressed without them! TFS
