Merry Merry Merry!!

Happy Bellariffic Friday all!!  Happy to be back with a post today.  Today's challenge was to make a Holiday Wishes/Winter Theme card.  With all the incredible Christmas stamps at Stamping Bella it was hard to choose, but I inked up my brand new Uptown Girl Charlie waits by the chimney.  This stamp is part of the new arrivals that are now cling mounted... and stamps like a dream.


Yep, I think I came dangerously close of running out of glitter on this one...lol.  Her entire skirt bottom is covered in glitter as is the top of the dress & trim on hat.  And getting carried away... (as I tend to do)... I softened the edges of the Authentique paper with white ink, added glossy accents and then more glitter all the way around.  This one is a sparkly one for sure!


Here she is in all her glory.  Is there not a more fun Christmas image?  Love her!  Coloured with Copic Markers and mounted on Cherry Cobbler cardstock from SU after running it through the die cutter with the Spellbinder Card Creator A2 Fancy Weave die.  I used a black glaze pen to outline the bricks & added the mandatory (for me...) glossy accents to the bricks, some pearls and ribbon.  Sentiment is from Hero Arts.  See that little fuzzy white ball I added to her hat?  Well I bought a HUGE bag of those at Michael's about 10 years ago and I think that's the first time I ever used one.  Success!

Here's the inside.  A little paper matching and sewing, kept it simple.

Carla this is fantastic!! I love your posts and I love all the "glitterfication" on this card - her skirt and around the edge of the card is scrumptious! The chimney is super with all the glossy accents and I love the little pompom on her hat. I hope you're asking Santa for more glitter and glossy accents this Christmas! :)

You can NEVER use too much bling at Christmas. Lol! She's sure cute. Lol about the pompoms. I have a bag of foam letters bought with a similar story attached. I wanted one word spelled out on something and the rest have been abandoned in a drawer. Lol!
