These are a few of our favorite things...

Pin It

Unity Stamps and rhinestones that glitter.
Basic grey wassail paper that reminds me of winter.
Piggy tales, pearls, urban prairie buttons
Warm, fuzzy dotted May Arts Ribbons and rub-ons!

When the mojo's gone.
When I'm feeling, like I can't make a single thing.
I simply remember my favorite Limelight things
and then I don't feel so bad!

I've got 2 cards for the sketch.
Here's my first one:

Oh how I love the kitty stamps by Pink Cat Studio!
This adorable image and sentiment are from the Christmas Kitty set.

I decided to go with non-traditional Christmas colors.
The super cute striped paper is Kaisercraft Sorbet Mint Fudge. Sounds YUMMY!
The pink piece on the top half is from the Basic Grey Sultry 6x6 pad.
AND, check out that totally fabu ribbon ~ Fuzzy/Center Dot Ribbon-Olive/Sage!!! Mandy has LOTS of NEW ribbons in the store so be sure the check them out!!

The sparkle on the tree is from Pixee Stix Silver Berry glitter.
There are 3 rhinestones under the sentiment for some dazzle.
The buttons in the lower right corner are from the Basic Grey Wassail Buttons pack.
And, I used two silver brads at the top.

Stamps ~ Christmas Kitty by Pink Cat Studio
Paper ~ Kaisercraft Sorbet Mint Fudge, Basic Grey Sultry 6x6 pad, white, chocolate chip
Ink ~ Adirondak Espresso, Versafine Onyx Black, Bic Mark Its, Copics
Accessories ~ fuzzy dot ribbon, pixee stix silverberry glitter, wassail buttons, silver brads, rhinestones, nesties, dimensionals

On to card #2:

Isn't this angel so sweet? It's just so Christmas-y! It is the Luke 2:14 Glorious Angel by Unity.
All of the paper on this card (except for the chocolate chip scalloped circle) is from the Basic Grey Wassail 6x6 pad.

I stamped her onto the 'white' paper from the Wassail pad and then again on the 'red' paper from the Wassail pad so that I could paper piece the angel's dress.
When I paper piece, I like to run the pieces through my Xyron so that it's good and sticky all over so it sticks well and lays flat to the 'main' piece.

Her wings are covered with SHIMMERZ!
I used the Candle Light Shimmerz. One thing I like about Shimmerz is that the black lines that you paint over still show through. However, I did go back and trace the black swirls in the wings so that they would stand out a little more.

The ribbon is one of my favorite ribbons at Limelight: Brown/Antique Gold.
The buttons on this card are also from the pack of Wassail Buttons.
And, there are two gold brads at the top.

Stamps ~ Luke 2:14 Glorious Angel by Unity
