November 2011 Friends of WMS Blog Waltz

This is my first time I have done a blog hop for Waltzingmouse Stamps! Our theme for the Waltz  this month is Winter/Christmas! My favorite time of the year! My Mother already has her Christmas decorations up because I spent the day helping her. I started off with a 5"x 7" finished card size. My base is Certain Celery by Stampin'Up and I used the Decorative Band -Foil from the Little Yellow Bicycle "The Sharon Ann's Christmas Magic Collection" for the second layer. I cut this 4 3/4"x 6 3/4". For the next layer I cut the "Snowfall" from the same collection to fit inside the red layer so it would be frame by the foil bottom. I cut out the doily using the "Medallion-Foil" using the Doily die called "English Tea Doily" by Cheery Lynn Designs. I then cut out Lacey Square by Spellbinders  using grungepaper by Tim Holtz. Then cut out a red Lacey Square by the same die. I stamped "Good Old Fashioned Christmas" by Waltzingmouse Stamps using black Crafter's ink by Clearsnap and Ranger's Adirondack Embossing Powder "Moss". I colored in the image using Clearsnap Smooch ink using the following colors Siren, Gold Lame and Kiwi. I then stamped the medium Poinsettia twice from the set called "Big Bloom Poinsettia" by Waltzingmouse Stamps using black Crafter's ink by Clearsnap and clear EP. I colored the Poinsettia using US ArtQuest Stargazers Watercolor Palette. I layered one Poinsettia on top of the other using pop up dots. I added basic pearls for the center of the Poinsettia by Stampin'Up. I added Fabric stickers borders from the same collection on the red paper at the bottom and added light green metallic ribbon by Michael's on top. I added photo corners from the package of Thickers Tinsel Accents by American Crafts as shown. Here is a picture of the inside of the card.
