Christmas Kiss

Have you seen the new Bildmalarna Christmas Stamps?  They seriously have the aaah factor for sure.  As soon as this stamp arrived in the mail yesterday I had to ink and colour it up (yes I take the inks to work with me so I can colour on a lunch time haha).  So all that was left to do was make up the card when I got in from work last night.

This is Christmas Kiss (methinks I will be using this stamp a lot in the coming months).  I have used distress reinkers to colour the image.

The gorgeous papers are Pion Design Silent Night, I have inked the edges with Walnut Stain and then machine stiched them.  I have used a Square Frame Frilly #10 die for the centre mat and machine stitched around that too.  The sentiment is from the Grunge Christmas Postmarks set from Lili of the valley.  And I made some more German Glass Glitter twirlies again.

The inks used to colour the image are
Skin: Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Fired Brick
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain (Her), Vintage Photo, Tea Dye (Him)
Clothes: Pumice Stone, Stormy Sky
Holly: Bundled Sage, Black, Victorian Velvet, Raspberry
Swing: Vintage Photo
Shading around image: Weathered Wood

I’ve used part of a die cut from the Tim Holtz Snow Flurries on the edge die and glittered the edges with stickles.

The pearls, seam binding and flowers (Cottage Rose, 20mm roses, 15mm roses) are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The gorgeous leaves are die cut from Kraft card with the CC Designs Olive Branch die – love this die!!

I love cards that virtually make themselves and this was one of them!

Have a fantabulous weekend, back tomorrow with the weekly Wild Orchid Crafts candy.

  46. I only wish I had that same problem, where cards just create themselves--ha! I think my problem is my left brain has too many demands on it... hence, my right/creative side is supressed. Give me some time off from work though, and all kinds of mojo happens! Love this card and the color combo's. I suppose the image doesn't come in digi form, does it? :)
