Day 2: Snowbirds and A Very Merry Christmas

Good morning and welcome to our second day of our November hops. Today we are showcasing Snow Birds and A Very Merry Christmas stamp sets. Be sure to comment as you hop through because we will be giving away a $50 gift certificate for Gina K. shopping. Each comment in one entry, so the more you leave the more chances you have to win.  Winner will be chosen a few days after the hop and announced on StampTV. Good luck!

Emily's greetings and lettering are wonderful in this set.  I stamped the deck the halls image in Red Velvet and embossed the ornament topper with Versamark and gold powder. I dusted off some decorative edge scallop scissors I have to make the border and mat, then mounted on Pure Luxury Gold metallic cardstock and a White base.  I'm out of red bakers twine so I made my own with a red alcohol marker on jute to complete the design.

I made two cards with Alicia's Snow Birds 
. Here I did simple coloring with alcohol markers on the titmouse.  Cardstock is Pure Luxury White, Red Velvet and Moonlit Fog.

I hadn't heard this quote before, and I like it very much. After stamping the feather in Jet Black Amalgam on White, I stamped it again on Red Velvet cardstock. I hand cut a little heart from the stamped feather to pop up on a foam square over the first feather. Cardstock is Pure Luxury White, Red Velvet and Kraft.
