Day 2 Bell and Present

Good morning to you and welcome to Day 2 of the Preview of the new releases at Crafty Sentiments.   Today on the Crafty Sentiments Inspiration Blog, we are showcasing the beautiful Bell and Present which is one of the new stamps to be released on the 22nd October.  Here is my card:

Such a joy to colour her in with my Copics.  The papers are Nitwits Ho Ho Ho and some Centura Pearl for the centre panel which has been embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Spellbinders Grand Oval and Grand Scalloped Ovals to cut and mat the image.  Cheery Lynn Tiny Expandable Borders and Santa's Sleigh and Reindeer (which I cut short to fit in).  Ribbon and charm from my stash.  There is some Stardust Stickles on the edge of her skirt which doesn't really show up.  Here is another view:

Please go over to Crafty Sentiments Inspiration Blog to see the rest of the beautiful samples, there are some fabulous Guest Designers too!

Hi Susan - this really is a lovely Christmas card - I love the non-traditional colours and that little 'Santa and his sleigh' die cut is great - I have that on order and wasn't too sure of the size until I saw your card - brilliant. The image is also really cute!

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

Hi Suzie,

Another beautiful card from yourself, you do colour these in well, they look so professional, when I colour in they look all streaky, I can never get the colours to blend, if I use a blender then it just seems to take the colour off leaving a white patch lol! Love everything about your card, the colour theme, papers everything.

Love & Hugs
