LOC Sneak Peek - Christmas Blues

A quick post today as I head off to teach a Card Design Class at my LSS - I could not go without showing you one more Sneak Peek of the Layers of Color New Releases.

How divine is this Christmas Blessings art stamp set - and don't we love it coordinating with the Spellbinders Labels 18 - makes cardmaking so easy!

I have cut out the image using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur (but you know that - don't you! LOL!) and coloured lightly with Distressing Inks.

The sentiment is from the Glad Tidings art stamp set

Layering and texture always help create interest and warmth on a card - two favourites or mine - I am very tactile!

This card is for the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Monochromatic
Little Miss Muffet Challenges - Things With Wings
Paper Play - Use 2 or more stamped images
Shelly's Images - Anything Goes
Craft Fancy - Use diecuts
Paper Take Weekly - Things With Wings   
We are now officially counting down

Our party will start with a BLOG HOP
with lots of GIVEAWAYS, including
the GRAND PRIZE Drawing to WIN
the entire September New Release!
Grab an Angelic Party Badge for you and your friends
and invite them to the party and to
