I have a little Christmas inspiration for you today, or I hope that I can inspire you. It seems like all I have been doing is creating for Halloween, so I thought that I would try, once again, to get in the mood for Christmas crafts.
Today I created my second Christmas card using Rick St.Dennis’s Minty Miranda from his Christmas Randi Dandi collection at I Brake for Stamps (IBFS). The Minty Miranda that I used is in the digital format. You can also get her in rubber as a single, or as a group of four rubber stamps.
I colored Minty Miranda with Copics and added some #9 clear Swarovski crystals to her earrings and necklace. The designer papers I found, Countdownto Christmas collection from Bazzill, were the perfect colors. My cardstock was a very easy choice too, Stampin’ Up!’s cherry cobbler and old olive.
Skin: E000, 11, R20
Greens: Yg61, 63, 67
Reds: R21, 24, 27, 89
Background: YG61, G63, W0, 1, 2, 4
All of my embellishments fell into place. The corner chipboard pieces I just received a couple of weeks ago. They are “Fancy CornersSmall” by Petaloo. I had a happy accident in the red color for those corners. I first sprayed with Cherry Pie Dylusions, and while it was still wet, pounced on some lipstick red acrylic paint. Like I said, happy mistake, but I do need to remember the formula. My other embellishments are Spellbinder’s Frosty Forms die cuts in the cherry cobbler cardstock.
