Cardmaker Magazine and The Project Bin hop!

Good Morning friends
and Happy December!

Welcome to the CardMaker Magazine Christmas blog hop 
featuring stamps from The Project Bin.
This exciting hop is filled with Christmas cards, holiday inspiration
and more to get your creativity flowing for the holidays!

I have two cards that I'm showcasing for you today ~
one that is elegant and glittery and one that's colorful and whimsical ...
a little bit of everything that Christmas brings ♥  

 But first, you should have arrived at my blog from Diana's blog
and from here you will hop on over to see Nicole's blog.
(For a full hop list or to start at the beginning, scroll down to the bottom of this post.)


First up, I'm showcasing a card using Joyful Song
a stamp set filled with angelic inspired sentiments.
I've created a card using scraps of bold glitter papers in varied holiday colors
to compliment the choirs of angels stamp as a bold focal point. 
The heart is also glitter designer paper and cut from a die, 
popped up on 3D foam.

For my next card, I've used bright cheerful colors for a more whimsical look.
I've used Maybe Christmas to create this card,
adorned with buttons and enamel dots for a little dimension. 

Here are both together:

I hope you enjoyed my cards today :)
