I {heart} to stamp sketch challenge

I need a few more Christmas cards, so I went over to I {heart} to stamp and found this sketch:
I’ve bought a huge package of DCWV Christmas paper from Michael’s a few weeks ago and I am enjoying using them – I love the coordinating papers.
The card base is 120 lb. white from Gina K. I used Chocolate Chip and the DCWV patterned papers. The dove is from Gina K.’s “The Magic of Christmas” set by Rupa Shevde (I LOVE this stamp set). I used Momento Rich Cocoa to stamp the dove and copic markers to colour it in. I cut it out and layered it with nestabilities. I used a chocolate satin ribbon and used a sentiment from Chit Chat (SU) rub-ons directly on it. I used some SU square rhinestone brads for a little bling. The large panel and the dove image are popped up. Thanks for having a look.

Mojo Monday Week 116

I haven’t posted much to the blog lately. I have posted a bunch of cards at SCS though. I’ll get all of those linked up here at some point. In the meantime, here is my post for today’ Mojo Monday Week 116 sketch challenge:


My card base is 120 lb. white and I layered some Ruby Red on top of that. I added DCWV patterned paper over that. I just bought some ribbon at Michael’s on sale over the weekend when I was in the states. It matches perfectly. The tree image is from Gina K.’s “The Magic of Christmas” by Rupa Shevde (I absolutely LOVE this set!). I coloured it with various copic markers and cut it out and layered it with nesties. The other round layers are a teeny bit smaller and are Sahara Sand and Garden Green, embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folders (snowflakes and ornaments) with a Ruby Red layer behind them. I used one of my Baba’s buttons with a little silver cord and adhered it with a glue dot. That’s it! TFL!
