Today I am getting to hop with the Paper Pretties team. Paper Pretties has a new owner. They are now located in Wisconsin and have fast shipping. If you are Blog hopping with us are coming from Jennifer Greco’s blog.

For my sample I used Surprise Sophia. I stamped her in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on X-Press It! Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers (Dress: B21, B24, B26, Hair: YR31, E35, E39, Skin: E0000, E00, E31, R20, Stockings: E40, E41, E43, Shoes and Bow: R24, R29, R39, W5). The stockings were textured with a paper napkin that I had laying around in Richmond at the Copic Certification and my Copic Marker 0. I cut and embossed the image with Petite Oval Nestabilities. It was layered on black cardstock and cut with a bigger Petite Oval Nestabilities.

Bo Bunny Patterned paper was cut and embossed with Label 17 Nestabilities. The edges were sanded, adhered to black cardstock and cut out for a thin black layer.

A 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ paper strip was adhered to a 4 1/4″ x 5″ piece of patterned paper. Both papers are from Bo Bunny’s ‘Tis the Season paper collection. They were stitched a 3/16″ bigger piece of Black cardstock before the layers were attached to a 4 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ Cherry Cobbler cardstock base.

Royal Blue Satin Ribbon was tied into a bow with the help of Bow-Easy and topped with a black Recollection Rhinestone brad. It was adhered to the uppler left hand side of the image with Scor-Tape. Black Kaisercraft Rhinestones were adhered to the upper right hand corner of the image to tie in the rhinestone brad.

The sentiment is also from Surprise Sophia. It was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and was cut and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities. The center of the sentiment was colored with Copic Marker YG01 and Silver Rhinestone Brads were attached underneath.

Next on the blog hop is Pam Varnell’s blog. Have fun hopping! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and smiles

  2. Gorgeous card Beate

  3. Oh my! The shading you did on her hair is AMAZING! So pretty!!!

  4. Hi

    I noticed that you die-cut Sophia with an oval nestie, but you were able to have her foot outside the oval frame. This gives the card such a great bit of interest to it. Discreet but smashing nonetheless. How do you do that? How do you cut an image but leave “part” of it outside of the frame? Is there a tutorial on that?
    Thanks so much. Have a wonderful weekend and God Bless,
