The Magic Of Winter

My husband loves snow globes. He collects gorgeous ones. Mostly Christmas globes.

This snow man from The Stamp Doctor was begging to be a snow globe. Don't you think?? With some spellbinders dies it was super easy. Did you know the Doctor sells Spellbinders Nestabilities? Well, you do now! The snowman is from Let It Snow Circles. There are tons more stamps like this set at The Stamp Doctor website!

I also made up the inside. I love cards that are decorated inside. Makes them feel more complete, tho, I don't always.

So, why don't you hop on over and see what you can find over at The Stamp Doctor? You never know what treasures await!

Just when you thought....

That's right! Just when you thought I was done, here is some more inspiration! Having fun being an EMT over at the Stamp Doctor. I made this card and it just said, "calm", and "fall" and...."life". Okay, it doesn't actually say that, but that's what I feel when I look at the colors and the sweetness of it.

Lately, I have really been getting into doing the inside of my cards. Its high time I stop being so lazy and complete my card. Ha! So here is the inside:

Hope this inspires you! Be sure to hop over to the Stamp Doctor and see what's up!

Can you believe it? An ENTIRE day JUST for making cards! Are you kidding me?!?!?

If you are coming from Leah l'Orange, then you are on the right track.

Today, The Stamp Doctor is a sponsor for World Card Making day! How fun!! I feel so lucky to be a part of this blog hop dedicated to one of my all time favorite crafts!!

For my card, I used a floral stamp from The Stamp Doctor.  I used designer paper from Simple Stories, Vitage Bliss. Did you know the Stamp Doctor also sells paper? They do! They also sell Washi! I used their hounds-tooth washi. I love the feel of this Washi!

I colored the image with Copics. I tried to keep the color soft and fresh.

Copic List:


I not only decorated the inside of the card, but decided to add some flair to the envelope too. Just to make it extra special.  

This sentiment is also from the Stamp Doctor Florals collection. 

I had so much fun making this card and I hope it inspires you on World Card Making Day to make your own special card!!!  Be sure to complete the hop!! Did you miss anyone? Be sure you got us all!! You must leave a comment on EACH blog in order to be entered to win the prize! 

Happy card making!
