Blue Christmas

Hi there! Here is a card I shared at the release party for Gina K last week. I combined several sets on this card to make a cool winter scene.

I stamped the background stamp from Hip To Be Square, then sponged in the background with Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue inks. Then I stamped the trees from Holiday Cheer (current StampTV kit), using Going Gray ink.

I stamped one corner from the new Festive Frame stamp, then colored with Copics and cut it out. I placed that in the corner of my window. Then I stamped the poinsettia from A Year of Flowers, twice and colored with Copics. I cut those out, cutting just the inside leaves on one. Then I layered them on top of the poinsettia from the Festive Frame image. I added a few self adhesive pearls to the center of the poinsettia.

The round sentiment tag is from Holiday Greetings (from the current StampTV kit) and was cut out with my 1 1/4 inch circle punch. I layered that with a scallop circle, cut using Nestabiltities. I used a Copic to fill in the narrow border around the window and then layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx. The cardbase is a new Pure Luxury color called Smoky Slate.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is filled with smiles!

I'm sorry not to have been round to see you lately, but I have been working on my tutorial blog, it is not as good as yours though. I just love reading what you do to cards. I'm back now, and I love your card again, you truly are the master! Promise I won't be such a bad blogger in future. :-)
