Stampendous and May Arts Blog Hop

Hello everyone,

Welcome to a whole week of fun filled Stampendous and May Arts inspiration! We are culminating a fantastic week of inspiration with an even more fun-filled, inspirational blog hop! And to celebrate Card Making day … I made a card.

When I first saw this thick and lush double sided ribbon, 2 thoughts came to mind:

  • I had to use both sides of the ribbon and
  • it just had to go with this Santa and his luxurious coat.

I also sprinkled some Stampendous gold embossing enamels on the background. Santa can’t be standing on bare floors. Santa had some Stampendous white flock on his coat too and he was colored with Copic markers. Patterned paper is from Authentique and buttons from Momenta.

Check out these fabulous projects from the Stampendous team – you don’t want to miss this hop!
