GinaK A Very Merry Christmas Blog Hop

I'm so glad you could join us for A Very Merry Christmas blog hop. This fabulous set was illustrated by the uber-talented, Theresa Momber. It has so many wonderful sentiments and vintage type images that are just fun to color.

For my card, I used my new favorite dark red cardstock, Cranberry Tart, as my card base. I stamped the bells and colored them with Copic markers. Using the Labels 4 die, I cut the image and sponged with Certainly Celery ink. I used scraps of coordinating papers and that new beautiful organdy ribbon. I stamped the sentiment and added a shine to the bells by using Crystal Lacquer. A few gold pearls finished the card.

Here's a close up of the shiny bells. This is the first time I've used Crystal Lacquer and I don't know why I waited this long. It just makes your image pop.

The sketch is from A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge.
