4 Months Till Christmas Blog Hop!!!!

Hi Everyone:

Welcome to the 4th Month's Till Christmas Blog Hop!!  If you have come here from Mary's Blog you are in the right place.  I was asked by this lovely group of ladies to join the Hop this month as a Special Guest, thanks ladies! 

I have created two cards for you one with stamping & colouring and the other which mainly focuses on dies.


For the first card I have used Marianne Creatables Dies which sold out in the store before I could get my card posted.  They will be back again soon.  I die cut the Christmas Balls and put them onto Scor Tape then put on Glitter Ritz for the dazling glitz, which is hard to see in the photo.


Giving awayclose
For the 2nd card I have used a Nellie Snellen stamp called "Giving Away".  The die is from Whimsy called "Layered Snowflake", the sentiment is also from Whimsy called "Winter Notables".  I used the Elegant Notables Die with the sentiment. 

Copics:  C0,C1,C2,EOOO,E00,E21,R37,R39,R59,E41,E42,E43,E44,E25,E29,Y32,G40,

Slugs and Snails

Hi Everyone,

Wee Snippet

Wow I feel like I'm on a roll this week!  2 cards posted in 2 days....wooo hooo!  I wonder if I can make it 3 with another one tomorrow?  It can be done...I think!

Today I have another adorable image from Crissy Armstrong called Wee Snippet.  If you are looking for the stamp you can find it HERE!


Copic's:  RV0000, RV000, RV00, RV02, YR00, YR20, E99, YR12, E41, E44, E43, E42, YR000, YR02, YR01

Misc:  Memento Summer Sky for the clouds, Sepia & French Grey 50% Prisma pencils for the ground, Fairytale Princess patterned paper from Dovecraft you can find that HERE if you are looking for it.

It's hard to tell from the angle of the jpeg but I cut Snippet out and placed her over another piece of cardstock (which I cut with the Labels 15 Spellbinder die), she is on foam dimensionals.  The clouds are done with Summer Sky using a template I made out of cardstock, easy to do. 


Hope you enjoy today's post & thanks for popping by!
