Whiff of Joy # 53 & Friday Sketchers # 76...Warm Thoughts


I am back with another card that I made this afternoon with my new Whiff of Joy Winter stamp set. It came in the mail on Tuesday and I have been itching to ink up this little cutie checking out her stocking. So, I thought I would join the challenge over at the Whiff of Joy challenge blog. This week they have a colour combo which is Red and Cream plus a colour of your choice. I'm not sure my card will qualify as I started with the sea foam green and then added in the peachy pink too and didn't really use too much cream but I am thrilled with how this card turned out anyways. I also used the great sketch that they have over at Friday Sketchers designed by Aud! I really love this sketch...all the layers are right up my alley and I'll definitely use it again!

My cardbase is 6x6 from light green Bazzill Bling cardstock and I used this winter Cosmo Cricket pp called Jolly by Golly! I just love the non-traditional colours and whimsical images on this paper! I matted with some peachy pink Bazzill Bling and added the red Bazzill Bling tag. Love this sea foam green American Crafts ribbon that says Santa Claus on it and I thought it would be perfect for this card. I used one of the sentiments that came in the WOJ Winter Stamp set and stamped it on a Nesties tag, inked ith with Distress inks, added a BG brad and pop-dotted it.
I am not sure if this little girl is named Lizzie or not but she is so sweet and she is my fave WOJ Winter stamp right now. I just adore her and I stamped her on ATS Copic Quality paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with my Copics. I cut the image out with my rectangle Nesties and embossed it. I inked the edges with Antique Lined and Brushed Corduroy Distress inks. I added some Butter Cream Shimmerz here and there for a little sparkle.
Thanks for stopping by to have a wee peek!
Hugs,
