Elfin Magic Morgan Release!

Greetings! I am very excited to share a new release from Stamp Insanity with you today! Now I don’t feel so sad that there won’t be a new SI challenge this week, due to Thanksgiving.

This new set features Morgan…all dolled up for the Holidays as an adorable elf! Plus, there are a couple of other cool images in the set too! Here’s my creation:

Elfin'-Release-1

I wanted to go with Victorian colors for this card. My Mom has decorated her home with these colors for Christmas for years and years. Because of her, I just love having a Victorian Christmas. So these colors say Christmas to me almost as much as red and green!

Elfin'-Release-2

I colored Morgan in with my watercolor markers, and Phoenix helped me chalk the negative space, the sentiment and the card. If you haven’t used chalk yet, I really want to encourage you to do so…it gives such a lovely finish to everything!

I’d like to thank Suzi for putting these 2 images together…I would have never been able to figure out how to do it myself! Doesn’t Morgan look adorable standing under this lovely arch? Way to go Beth with another fabulous release!!!

Elfin'-Release-3

Phoenix also helped me glue, punch and place all of the pieces on the card. He told me that he really loves making cards with me. Isn’t that the sweetest thing???

Did you check out the sentiment? “Meet me under the mistletoe,” in the prettiest font! Perfection! I will be using that a lot!!!

Some of the other Groovy Gurlz have creations to share with you today too! Please visit them!!! Have an inspiring day!
