I've always admired the coloring of Camilla and Hanna, but I've never really been able to achieve the dramatic effects that they do when they color. I'm just in awe at the deep shadows they have on their images - they're stunning! Make sure to visit their blog if you have time. You won't regret it.
Oh...and did you notice the gorgeous papers on my card?? Yes, you guessed it - they're the Whimsy Stamps Designer Papers from the Holiday Folly pack that released on November 10th! They arrived so quickly, which is great, because I was eager to make something with them.
Speaking of new things, this is also the first time that I'm using my brand spankin' new Tonic 12x12 Guillotine Paper Cutter. This cutter is awesome!! It's so great that it's currently sold out right now at 7 Kids College Fund, but make sure you keep checking back.
I made an nontraditional pink Christmas cards with my fresh-out-of-the-post-office Magnolia Angel Tilda stamp from 7 Kids College Fund. This stamp is currently a pre-order that's expected to ship mid-November. Speaking of Magnolia Stamps, have you been able to browse through the Merry Little Christmas Collection yet? I think this is my favorite collection to date. There are so many wonderful stamps to choose from!
I stamped a "border" around the stamp using a flourish from one of my Whimsy sets (I don't know which one, sorry!). I added in a cluster of flowers from WOC at one corner and some pearls on the other. I also tried to add in some highlight lines using the Inkssentials Opaque White Pen from Ranger, but I'm still trying to figure out where they're supposed to go : /
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic weekend :)
