Christmas Lovely from Third Coast Rubber Stamps

Hi Friends,
More Christmas inspiration today!  This time, I have used two images from Third Coast Rubber Stamps.
Winter Walk and Retro Ornaments.  I used paper piecing on this lovely lady.

Card Size: 5 x 5 ¼

  1. Stamps: Winter Walk (VB-370-M), Retro Ornaments (CO-099-M) – Third Coast Rubber Stamps; Sentiment-My Sentiments Exactly.  
  2. Card Stock: Really Red-Stampin’ Up; White.
  3. Decorative Paper: No. 2 Tiny Dots-My Mind’s Eye; Chic Stripes-Fancy Pants Designs.   
  4. Ink: Jet Black (SZ-31) Stazon; Emboss It (EIP05506) Ranger; On doily- Rocket Red Gold (BR-96) Brilliance.
  5. Glimmer Sprays: Vintage Pink and Gold Glimmer Mist –Tattered Angels.
  6. Other: Clear Super Fine Embossing Powder (EPB10968) Ranger; Markers-Memento; Blender Pen-Stampin’ Up.
  7. Embellishments: Paper Doily; Red Riding Hood Striped Ribbon (113099) Stampin’ Up.
  8. Other: Dimensional Adhesive Squares. 

Make card from Really Red CS.  On green DP, stamp Retro Ornaments with Emboss It ink and heat emboss with clear powder.  Add to card front.  Cut a rectangle and strips of CS and DP; add to card front.  Cut Doily in half.  Spray doily with Glimmer Mists (let dry) and add Rocket Red Gold ink.  Glue to card front.  Stamp sentiment and layer with CS; add to card front.  Paper Piece the Christmas Lady Stamp: Stamp the Christmas Lady on white CS, Tiny Dots DP and again on Chic Stripes DP.  On the White CS color the hair, face, purse, and boots with markers and blender pen; cut out.  Cut out the Skirt and coat from the DP; glue over the original stamped image.  Add to card front with Dimensional squares.  Fold a piece of ribbon and glue to inside edge of card. 

And, of course, a peek at the inside.

This is a really fun image.  You may recognize it from a Halloween card I made in October.  She is very versatile.  There is lots and lots more TCRS inspiration on the TCRS Design Blog.   

I would also like to enter my Christmas Lovely in the By the Cute And Girly Challenge: Christmas Girls.

Have a great day.  Love ya.
