Wow! Even I didn't think I'd be this fast with my next post! :o)
I have made my first Christmas card of the year!
With this card I am participating in the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Special Christmas DT Blog Hop.
A little while ago I purchased a couple of wonderful stamp sets and dies from this great company.
Their blog hop was the perfect inspiration to use a couple of them.
I must say that I'm super happy with the quality and crispness of the stamps!
You can take a look at their beautiful selection in the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.
For my card I used the fabulous clear stamp set called "Christmas Light".
You can find it in the store HERE.
I coloured the stamped image up with my Spectrum Noir markers.
Then I cut it out using the Christmas Light Candle die found HERE.
I think a pretty candle like this deserves a window scene.
I used a die to cut out my window frame.
Then I had to figure out where to put my sentiment where it wouldn't interfere with my scene.
I decided to make a little sheer curtain for my window.
I used Staz-on ink to stamp the verse from the set onto my velum curtain.
Now the verse is easily read and doesn't interrupt my scene.
I added stickles to the holly, berries and flame, and I put glossy accents on the candle drippings.
Finally, I added a few pearls to the window frame.
