Christmas Light

Good morning! Welcome to the 5th Birthday Blog Hop for my friends at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps! I remember getting to know Korin at Splitcoaststampers when she was just opening the store. Five years later, I have enjoyed working with her so much. Korin is truly a lady of grace and a joy to work with. I’m so happy she asked me to be hopping with Friends of Sweet ‘n Sassy today!

When I was laying out my project, I chose one of my favorite set/die combos from Sweet ‘n Sassy, Christmas Light. Look at the gorgeous detail on both the candle and the die. Love this!

My image is colored with Copic Marker – I love the brassy look of Y28. It’s not a color that I use a ton, but it sure is perfect for this image. I put a little glassy glaze over the top of my candle wax drips, and just a hint of Spica glitter pen over the flame.

My card is put together with cranberry paper from Core’dinations that has been embossed with an embossing folder and distressed just a touch with a sanding block, decorative oval die from Spellbinders and some scraps of lace that I found in a bag of cast-offs.

I hope you have time to visit our hoppers today. Korin has chosen 4 secret participant blogs where she’ll choose a random commenter to win a $15 gift certificate, so while you are browsing at the eye candy, leave the ladies some love. Comments must be made by midnight EST on Friday, November 30th. The winners will be announced on the SNSS Blog on Saturday, December 1st at 8am EST.

You can find the full hop line up HERE.
