Good Morning! I am very excited to once again be joining Taheera Atchia on her annual Advent blog hop.

Here is my card for today:

I created the background of this card with the Avery Elle Ikat additions stamp set using Simon says stamp fog gray and Hero Arts soft pool ink. The gold accents and sentiment were heat embossed with some glitter EP from Reflections. The sentiment is from Avery Elle's 'comfort and joy' stamp set.  I mounted the stamped panel onto a birchwood scalloped matt and a soft stone card base. I love the idea of making Christmas cards out of non Christmas stamps. :)

Muse: Christmas Visions

I am very excited to be the Muse this month over on the Muse: Christmas Visions blog.

For my inspiration card I created a cute scene using a stamp set from Avery Elle called, 'Caroling Critters'. I started with some cracked pistachio distress ink to do some ink blending for the background. I then used the 'Wonkey stitched elle-ments' die to cut out the panel. My images were die cut, stamped and heat embossed onto some Bristol paper and coloured with Zig clean colour markers. I used an MFT die to cut the snow drift out and stamped the sentiment on it before popping it onto the base with some foam tape. Once I had all the images adhered in place, I attached it to a card base with some silver glitter paper to add some shine.

Thank you so much for visiting today and I hope you are inspired to play along.  Hop on over to the Muse:Christmas Visions blog to find out how to play along.
