This is my second post today. If you were looking for my Art Impressions post, scroll down and you will see my Merry Christmas post for Art Impressions. Otherwise, welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's It's A Cultural Thing Blog Hop! If you hopped here by way of Angie Blasingame's Blog, then you are in the right place! Otherwise, you might like to start from the beginning to become eligible for four great prizes.
Design Elements, Asian, Medallions and Andrea Roberts stamps on special - 15% off at Sparkle N Sprinkle! To view all our specials, including stamps, glitters, EPs, and other fine SNS products, just click here. Since Asian stamps are one of the types of stamps that are on special this month, I thought I'd use the Asian theme in my creations.I used the Medallion and the Hope stamps found in set 181 Asian-Carp. The card I designed is a easel that opens to the side.
This is the front of the card.(Closed)
Here is the card, opened
This is a closer view of the floor of the card, where the card sits, opened up.
This card design is using the bonsai image also in set 181.This is a very clean and simple card. One stamped image.
The last card I want to share with you, is one I designed by using 2 stamps from the Fan Geisha set 302. The bamboo background and the Fan Geisha are in the Fan Geisha set. The Chinese character that I added to this card represents the word Love, which is in the Asian - Carp set 181. The fan that is attached to the card was a gift from a friend and I saved it specifically for this blog hop. It was the perfect embellishment for the card.
We hope you will enjoy viewing all our cards as much as we did in creating them. To become eligible to win a Grand Prize, please leave a comment on each blog, and follow the directions on the last blog. Winners of mini prizes are selected when they leave a comment on the mystery designer’s blog AND answer the final question at the SNS Home Blog.
