Christmas Card

Here is a Christmas card I made recently. We did a version of this for Club in November.
I used Canary and Crystal Blue c/s and the stamp set called " Bright Spirits A1162". Then I coloured the image with Shinhan Touch Markers and masked it with Crystal Blue Ink. To finish it off I added Ruby Chevron ribbon and pearls. All supplies are from CTMH.

My DT Day Today

It is that time of month again! My DT Day over at Meljens!
I fell in love with the Snow Bunny image and knew I had to use it soon and seeing that it is cold enough for snow, it just seemed fitting!
I started off by colouring the bunny with Copic markers and then masking it with inks from CTMH. I love how this adds a great background! Then I added white highlights and adhered it to papers from Carta Bella and CTMH.

New Release DT Dare at YNS!

Well, it has been an exciting time over at Your Next Stamp for the last couple of days with all
 the new releases for November!
 Don't you just love the new stamp sets and dies!

Today I have been challenged to use "Red, White and Green" and frankly this is awesome because I get to use my new stamp set and it is perfect for these colours!

The new set is called " Santa Express Train Carts" and it can be found HERE.

Since Christmas is such a fun time of year for me and I LOVE giving gifts I thought I would do something a little different than a card so I created a gift box.
I just LOVED this saying included in this set (Merry Kiss-Mas)
and this little birdy with the mistletoe!
The box I created with my Cricut and then I stamped the Snow People and coloured them with Copic markers. For the cart I stamped it separately, coloured it and cut it out. Then added fake snow, a paper pieced scarf and glitter. (There is also ribbon, washi tape and more cardstock!)
 Go to the YNS Blog to see all the wonderful projects that the DT have made.
And check out all the new products including the stamp set above HERE!
 If you comment you could win a new release stamp set of your choice!
Commenting will be open from today until the 14th so....... GET going!

YNS New Release and Blog Hop Day!

Hello and welcome to the YNS NOVEMBER New Release and Blog Hop!
 I was thrilled to be asked to participate in this awesome event this month!
It is ONLY 45 days until Christmas and I am very excited! My daughters birthday is Christmas Eve so we have a lot of events leading up to the big day and it is a busy time of year! As we approach the holiday season I am usually in "production mode" making all the holiday cards and this year is no different! That is why I am VERY happy to see all the new releases that YNS has to offer!
They are just the right thing to make my personalized holiday cards!

We have a fun November lineup of stamps and dies for you this month.
We know you are going to fall in love with the new dies and our holiday characters!

As a great bonus, this month you will receive 20% off all new Release purchases!
Everything is available now in the YNS Store HERE!

The Hop begins on Brianna's blog and if you've been hopping along,
you should have come from Tracy's blog!
Make sure you hop around to all the blogs featured in the link list located at the bottom of this post for lots of inspiration using the new products!

Here are my projects for the Hop!
 For both of them I used the new stamp set called: "Santa Express Train Carts"

For this one I punched out a square from the white cardstock, then embossed it and added a sheet behind to look like a window. I coloured the Snow People with Copic markers and then paper pieced the scarf and ledge. To finish it off, I added fake snow, an organza ribbon and stamped the sentiment.

In this card I coloured the toys with Copic markers, cut them out and placed it on a piece of embossed cardstock. Then I added the patterned papers, punched a scalloped strip and added ribbon and the sentiment.
Here is the stamp set I used for both called "Santa Express Train Carts" - Isn't it cute!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by and hopping with us!
The lucky winner will be announced by Karen on the Your Next Stamp Blog on November 12th!
