I'm the first stop on today's hop, so grab a treat and hop along with us to see what's new!
Today's spotlight is shining on my illustrations for this release... Weary World, Psalm 119:105 plain jane and the Starry Stable Die Set.
While I love fun and whimsical Christmas decor, my favorite kind of Christmas cards to make are the ones that put the meaning of Christmas front and center. So that was my intent when sitting down to design this set, inspired by one of my favorite Christmas hymns, O Holy Night.
For my card, I decided to watercolor the manger scene from Weary World with Distress markers and a waterbrush. I added some glitzy accents with a Wink of Stella pen, then stamped the sentiment in the Vintage Oval frame from Die Sidekicks, watercolored and cut with the Vintage Oval Die. The papers are from the Glistening collection and I added some seam binding and aqua jingle bells, then finished off by accenting the star on the stable with the smaller star from the die set, cut from silver shimmer paper.
Next up on the hop is Laurie!
