I have exciting news. Starting next week I will be on the Whiff of Joy Challenge Team. I love their images and am thrilled they are now one of Splitcoaststampers Member companies.

The current challenge is to create a card with Pins and Lace. For my sample I stamped the image from Christmas Light in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Dress: R00, R11, R12, R14    Belt: E42, E43, E44     Wreath: G20, G21, G24, G28     Candle Holder: E31, E34, E37    Skin: E50, E51, E53, BV00    Hair: Y21, Y23, E97    Ground: W3, W5, W7, W9). The image was masked and the background was airbrushed with Copic Marker B45. I tried to match the colors for last weeks Color Challenge on SCS. The panel was stitched to a slightly bigger white oval.

A 3 3/4″ x 4 7/8″ piece of Bo Bunny Blitzen Collection paper was stitched to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Lattice Rectangle Nestabilities die. On the left side a piece of May Arts Crochet lace was adhered through the lattice before May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied over it. The bow was topped with a Basic Grey Button, tied on with embroidery thread. Two pearl pins were added behind the bow.

The edges of a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Blitzen paper were sanded and a border was stitched around the edge before the paper was adhered to the card base, a 4 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, folded in half.

A sentiment from Season’s Greetings was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Classic Oval Nestabilities die. The center was airbrushed with Copic Marker E51. The edges of the sentiment panel were paper pierced before the sentiment was adhered to the upper right hand side of the image with dimensionals. Baby Bling Pearls under the sentiment finish off the card.

You still have a week to participate in the Whiff of Joy challenge. If you use Whiff of Joy Images, you might win a $25 credit voucher for Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
