my 100th post! and for it, I'm bringing you a tiddly inks christmas!

Hello  there everyone!
today I have made a Christmas card using the stamps that dropped through my door this morning from Quick cards made easy and Tiddly inks Stamps.. they really are mega cute and I was so excited to finally play with some T.I clear stamps!
the issue number for the magazine is 130 and it should be in the shops soon or you can always find it online.... I have to admit I went straight for the stamps, discarding the magazine until later.... 

without further ado I dug out all my christmas crafting bits and bobs and a few other pieces, and I made this 7" square card 

To make this card I used a variety of materials-

copics e000 , e00, e21 ,e11, e04, r20 , e29 and 25
BG 7, BG 5, BG 000, an YR 23
promarkers- black, cool grey 5 ,4,3,1
burgundy, cardinal, crimson, moss,pear and lime
I stamped the clear stamp onto super smooth white cardstock from 'that craft place' using memento ink. 

I also used snowflake shaped brads
8x8 and 6x6 papers from my pile
coredinations cardstock in a light lilac
'JOY' and snowflake plastic embellishments
white gel pen for faux stitching
Liquid pearls in white opal
stampendous frantage - shabby white for snow effect
and christine hellmuth studio gesso
and  finally 3D foam pads to pop the image and hand cut pennants off the page.

I hope you enjoy this sweet card, and enjoy the rest of your day!



I would like to play along in these challenges also : new (in my case these stamps!)
