Christmas Card Playing

I just received two really neat stamp sets a couple days ago and this is the first time I've had the opportunity to play with them. One of the sets, Nutcracker Sweet has two larger nutcrackers that stamp wonderfully crisp. I also just bought some copic markers and have been playing around with them - learning to blend and shade with them. I have a long way to go on that! Anyway, here's my first Christmasy card for the season. Hope you enjoy!

I used stamp sets Nutcracker Sweet and Musical Backgrounds from Waltzingmouse, Enchanted Evening cardstock from PTI and copic markers B95, B97, B99, V91, V95, V99, E55, E57, E59, YG91, YG93, YG95, a spellbinders fancy tag die, and Antique Linen Distress ink.

WMS Sketch Challenge #15


Hello! Waltzingmouse stamps has a sketch challenge every week. Here is the sketch for this week - #15:
Here is my interpretation of that sketch:
The stamps I used were from Very Vintage Christmas and Nutcracker Sweet - which I just received in the mail 2 days ago. What fun it is to play with new stamps! I just love the snowflake in the background. I stamped them with Versamark ink and embossed them with white embossing powder. The little squares are from the Very Vintage Christmas set and are stamped on Ocean Tides PTI paper with Fresh snow ink and then punched out with a 3/4" punch. The tag is a spellbinders fancy tag. The saying is from Nutchracker Sweet. The card base is kraft paper from PTI.

Thanks for looking! Have a blessed day!
