You may have arrived from Nina’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.

I’m using the gorgeous Berry from Whimsy Stamps and have created a Christmas card. The paper I’m using this week is another Wild Rose Studio pack and this one is called Festive Wishes. I just love the colours in this pack.


My image has been stamped onto X-Press It Blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: E11, E00, E000, R20, E55, E53, E51, E51, R85, R83, R81, BG13, BG11, BG10, C4, C2, C0, C00.

Here’s a close up of the image.


I’ve added some sparkle to her ear muffs and boots and some True Snow to ground her.

I’ve also added lots of sparkle to all the snowflakes and to the flowers.


The snowflakes and tag is from the Doohickey ‘So Wrapped Snowflake’ die. My image is mounted onto a Marianne Design die called Petra Large Oval (LR0240). I’ve bordered my card using the Cherish ‘Around the Page’ Punch from Martha Stewart.

and a close up of the snowflakes.


And one last photo of the tag out.
