A Sneak Peek of Sweet November

Hi! You have NO idea how excited I am to be showing you a sneak peak of a new line of stamps by Amy (A Thousand Sheets of Paper)! Amy is amazingly talented and has been sharing these fantastic hand drawn Fairy creations of hers with those of us that visit her blog, and now they are being made into rubber (and some digi) through CC Designs-All That Scraps! They will be available on November 2! Amy's new line is called Sweet November Stamps and today I get to show you Gossamer Cornwand!

Now, I know with her spun web dress and spider friends a Christmas card may not have been the first thing that springs to most minds. Well, I have a confession to make. I have a thing about frost - I just love the sparkle it puts on the world. Do any of you remember that clay-mation holiday special from years ago called "Jack Frost"? Yep, that's my all time favorite holiday movie. So when I first saw this little beauty I pictured her being out at the turn of the season surrounded by red berries, with both the berries and her web dress sparkling with frost!

The Details:
Stamps: Gossamer Cornwand - Sweet November Stamps (available from All That Scraps), sentiment - retired SU - Season's Greetings
Paper: My Mind's Eye, Gina K base weight white, PTI White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Copics:
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Eyes:B02,BG05, both with C0 over
Hair and Wings: BG000 w/C0 over, BG72,BG75
Misc: Stardust Stickles, Clear Dew Drops, White Embossing powder

Thank you so much for stopping by and any comments you may leave!
