Jingle Bells!

Good Morning! It was my turn to blog on the DRS Designs Blog  yesterday and this is the card that I showed!

I am so excited to be able to preview our new stamps that will be released to you, our wonderful customers, on August 21st!!

AND, I hope you are participating in our Blog Hop Scavenger Hunt that began on August 17th and ends today,  so you can get some wonderful ideas and win some Christmas stamps - it's never too soon to start those cards!!

How about some Christmas Bells??!
For my card today I stamped the soon-to-be released Christmas Music Background in Versamark and then clear embossed it for my background.

I stamped and coloured the "Bells and Bows" image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and copics. 
I then re-stamped the image onto Spellbinders gold craft foil with Black Staz-on ink, cut out the bells only and glued them onto the first image.
I cut it out with the Spellbinders Labels 4 die, popped it up onto the Christmas Music Background and then attached that to my white card base and voila - finished! 

It took me awhile to get my brain around Christmas (in 97 degree weather) but it's never too early to start your Christmas cards!!

  2. This is lovely...great with the gold juxtaposed with the blue. I must admit that I was a little taken aback when I first got here since you could have called this card "Jingle Balls"...bwah ha ha!

  3. Awesome Christmas card! I love the colors you used and using the craft foli was such a neat idea--I've never heard of it! I'll have to check it out!
