Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw by leaving a comment on every blog listed for that day.

At the end of release week (Wednesday 26 September) we will post a Release Round-Up on the Whimsy blog. This will include a selection of DT work from the new release week together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops.

For my sample today, I had to use the darling Gift Bow Christmas Fairy from Meljen’s Design. I LOVE her fairies. I stamped the image in  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink once on Neenah Solar White cardstock and was colored with  Copic Marker (hat/jacket: R22, R24, R29, R39   Scarf: light green YG21, YG25, YG17, dark green YG23, YG17, G28   Skin: E000, E00, E01, E02, BV00    Hair: Y11, Y13, E31  Bow: BG10, BG11, BG13    Background: C00, C1, BV00).

The image was cut and embossed with the out of the box technique and the second largest Marvelous Square Nestabilities die. A piece My Mind’s Eye Winter Wonderland paper was cut and embossed with the largest of the Marvelous Square dies. A piece of Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with the largest and second largest of the Marvelous Squares dies to create a frame. That frame was adhered over the red layer with liquid adhesive. The image layer was adhered in the center with foam adhesive squares.

A 4 9/16″ square of Winter Wonderland paper was sanded, and stitched to a slightly bigger piece of white cardstock. I added snowtex to the edges of the square to soften the green. The edges of another paper strip were sanded and adhered to the squares before the image layers were adhered with more dimensional foam adhesive. May Arts sheer ribbon was tied around the layers and topped with a button. Everything was adhered to the card base, Kraft cardstock measuring 5 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ folded in half.

The sentiment banner from Raindrop Echo Designs new Holiday Circle Pennants and another sentiment from the same set were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers. The banner and Circle pennant were cut out and adhered to the card. Rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones pack were adhered to the edges of the Marvelous Squares and parts of Fancy That! Border Bling were added tot he top right and lower left corner. Sugar Sparkly Fluff was added to the rim of the jacket and hat.

To be entered into today’s mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT posts listed below by 12:00PM EST tomorrow:
