For my card I used the darling Wee Snippet with Mystic stamp created by the wonderful Crissy Armstrong. I stamped the image on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, cut it with the largest Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die and colored it with Copic Markers (Mystic Mane: RV000, RV10, Rv21     Fur: N0, N1, N2, N3    Horn: BG 05, BG07, BG09, BG10, BG11, BG13   Wee Snippet Skin: E50, E51, E53     Hair: E97, E99, E25, E29     Wing: BG07, BG09, BG10, BG11, BG13     Shirt: YR30, custom 1/5thYR31 + 4/5th Blending solution, YR31     Leaf skirt: YG00, YG01, YG03     Flower: YR00, YR12, YR15, YR18    Background: B0000, B000, B01).

The image was layered on a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Classic Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die and the edge of the image layer was paper pierced. Mystic’s horn and Wee Snippet’s wing was covered with Stardust Stickles, the flower in Snippets hair with Orange Peel Stickles.

White cardstock was cut and embossed with the largest Lattice Rectangle Nestabilities die. May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied around it before the image layers were adhered over it with dimensionals.

A 4 3/8″ x 5 3/8″ piece of Springtime Echo Park Paper was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of black cardstock and the image layers were adhered to that with dimensionals. Next everything was adhered to the card base, a piece of  5 7/8″ x 9 3/4″ piece of light orange Core’dination cardstock, folded in half.

The sentiment is from the new Magical Mini Letter Seal stamp set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, cut and embossed with a Circle Nestabilities dies and colored with Copic Markers (YR30, 1/5th YR31 and YR31). The sentiment panel was adhered to the upper right corner to finish off the card.

So now it’s time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Marley’s blog.

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:

Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy the new release! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
