Nikki - That’s me

Now let’s hop along and see what the Design Team ladies have in store for you….

You may have arrived from Lydia’s blog but if not you can start here and work your way around by following the Hop List included in each of our posts.

Now for my creation for this week.

It’s only a few days till the New Year so I’ve made a New Year’s celebration set.


My set consists of a Champagne Bottle & Glass with a coordinating card. The bottle is from the New Year’s Eve kit by svgcuts and the glass is a reduced bottle top with an added base.


and the bottle open…..


I’ve actually used Christmas paper for my project from the Candy Cane Lane collection by Bo Bunny. I thought this print worked perfectly for my New Year’s theme.

Here’s a closer look at my card.


My image is Tilda in Evening Dress from the Little Circus Moscow collection by Magnolia. (If you’d like to order this stamp just contact Laura and I’m sure she can get it in for you.)

My image was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with my Copic Markers

The colours I’ve used are: E11, E00, E000, R20, E47, E44, E43, E42, C2, C1, C00.

I’ve also added some Dazzling Details to the dress to add some extra glamour. My image has been cut out and layered with Spellbinders Large Classic & Oval Nestabiliites and then onto the Marianne Design LR0240 Large Petra Oval die. The edges on my card have been punched using the Cherish ‘Around the Page’ Punch by Martha Stewart.

Here’s the inside of the card.


My sentiment is computer generated and has been cut out using the Spellbinder dies as on the front of the card.

Your next stop for the hop is Blankina.
