Joyeux Noel

Hey everyone!  I'm exciting to be participating in the reveal of a new stamp set at Skipping Stones Design today.

It's a really beautiful, vintage set called Victorian Christmas.

I went very glittery with this one!  I used Coredinations Glitter Silk for the base.  I cut the frame and added 'mitres' in the corners with a scoring tool, and then lightly colored it using a gold Gelato.

The tag was cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  I embossed the tree in white and then added color using Topiary ink and a sponge.  Then I added some red glitter sparkles and metallic gold trim for extra sparkle.  Finally, I cut the little banner using the Cricut Artiste cartridge and stamped the sentiment.

This one totally put me in the Christmas spirit!  Thanks to Katie and Heather over at SSD for inviting me to take part in the big reveal!

Hope your week is off to a great start. 

Be sure to stop by the Skipping Stones site to check out the full reveal of the new set!
