Art Impressions - Holiday Sparkle challenge and launch of the new Christmas stamps!!

Hello AI fans!!!!
 
We're so excited as today we are having a HOLIDAY BLOG HOP!!!  Featured for your
enjoyment today are the new Holiday Stamps for 2014 AND the new
AI Shakers!! So grab your favorite cup of yumminess, and get ready to hop around to the design team.  Hopefully you've arrived from the Art Impressions Blog where you can find all the information for the hop!
 
Now as you are hopping around, be sure to leave comments on all the blogs cause
Art Impressions is giving away TWO stamp sets
(a Holiday 2014 and an AI Shakers set) on each
blog on the hop!!!! Holy guacamole!! How awesome is that???!!!!!
The winners will be announced on the AI Blog on October 9th!!
 
Now on to some crafty fun! For my card today, I used the beautiful CHRISTMAS TO ALL SET (sku# 4517) and colored it with Copic markers.


I used a few dies on this card.  The swirl on the top of the card is a Spellbinders die, 
the trees are Magnolia, and the snowflake is Noor Designs.  The frame the
snowman is in was cut with the Silhouette. 



I used the sentiment on the inside instead of the front with the trees and the
snowflake repeated on the inside.  


Copics used:
G42, G46, R32, R35, W1, W2, W3, Blender pen, E33, E35,
E00, E95, E97, E02, E11, E13, E15, B000
 
Did you see the card I posted this past Saturday that features the new GOBBLE SET from the new  AI Shakers? Just scroll down to the post under this one to see it!

So now it's time to hop on to the wickedly talented Karen Day
to see what gorgeous creation she has to show you!

Thanks so much for hopping along with us today and I hope you have as much fun as we did
creating these projects!  Don't forget to comment!!! Hugs!
