November 2019 - Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the November Joyful Stars Blog Hop. 

If you've come here from Joyce's Blog then you are on the right track. If you've just happened upon my blog, just keep hoping until you get right back here.

This is the last month to order the Holiday Cheer Ornament and Tag Kit. You can link up to this kit in the sidebar. 

My card today uses several Fantastic Stamps from this kit as well as the ornament dies and stamps available until the end of December. 

The White Background Panel was dry embossed with the Snowflake Embossing Folder then cut into 3 equal strips and attached to the Candy Apple Panel.

The ornament was cut out of Candy Apple Cardstock using the Custom Ornament Thin Cuts then stamped with Ruby Ink and the plaid stamp from the For The Tree Stamp Set. The top of the ornament was die cut from Gold Glitter Cardstock

The Santa, Holly  and Sentiment were all stamped from the Whimsical Holiday Stamp Set included in the kit, OR, it may be purchased Separately. 

The Holly was colored with the Dark Red and Dull Green TriBlend Alcohol Markers.  The Face of the Santa uses the Fair Skin and Pale Pink TriBlend Markers. 

I then used Christmas Red Stickles Santa's Hat and Glisten Stickles for Santa's Mustache. 
I used the Clear Shimmer Brush on the Beard. 

Now Hop on Over to Joyce Gough's Blog to see her fabulous artwork.
