Festive Elegance Blog Hop

Welcome Rosies to the December Festive Elegance Blog Hop. This month's hop will Run from today, December 15th- Friday, December 21st at 12pm. There is a chance for you to win a $15 WRC Gift Card just for hoping along with us and leaving a comment at each stop along the way!
Have you seen our December Festive Elegance Subscription Kit? There are only a few left in stock, so don't miss out on a chance to own your own bit of Festive Winter Elegance. But did you know that with each of our kits, there is always an Kit Add-On section of the Store that compliments your Monthly Subscription Kit? And did you know you can get anything in that Kit Add-On section for 10% off!!!
The design team is playing around with the vast array of crafting supplies you can find in the December Kit Add-Ons for this hop. So prepare yourself for all the fun and the very cool line up of projects we've created.
The Heffy Doodle stamp set called "Warm Hugs" was my starting point for this card. I thought the characters and all of their accessories were very cute, and I love that they have an igloo. I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Markers, and then I fussy cut them out. There are a lot more images than what I have used here, but I didn't think that this particular card needed more.

I wanted to have the characters standing on snow. But not just flat white snow. Beautiful, glittery mounds of snow. So I used Lawn Fawn's Sparkle Cardstock in Pixie Dust. I love the texture of not only the front of this cardstock, but the back as well. And it cuts like butter. For my sky, I applied Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks with a cosmetic sponge. My sentiment is from the Warm Hugs stamp set, and I inked that Tumbled Glass Distress Ink as well. I added a few stars from the Bubblegum Ice Sparkle Blend. Everything was glued down with Glossy Accents, as it's tough to use regular dry adhesive on glitter paper. My card base is made out of gray 110 lb. cardstock.

Almost all of the products that I used on my card today are on sale in the December Kit Add-Ons section. You can get 10% off anything in that category, and there are over 25 pages of products! Please be sure to visit the rest of the team; their blogs are all listed below. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
