ABC Christmas ,,,, ‘P’ for Paper Piecing :-)

Hi all :-) I hope all is well with you all :-) I am now back from my trip to the UK and will pop by to visit you all asap :-)

This time on the ABC Christmas Challenge it is the lovely Samantha’s turn to choose the theme ,,,,

‘P’ for Paper Piecing ,,,, easy peasy :-)

We have 2 fabulous sponsors for this challenge ,,

the lovely Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $15 spree to the fabby Simon Says Stamp Store


and The Ribbon Reel will be giving a $10 voucher to their lovely store too ! :-)

-ú10 Voucher bs

I have just received a fab parcel of the new released Christmas stamps from the Wild Rose Studio so I just had to ink up this cute Bella with Gifts :-)

I stamped with Black Memento onto Neenah card and coloured with Copics. The papers are from a new Xmas Bella pack and I pieced the blue pressies using paper from the same pack. I added Polar White flower soft to his pom pom and hat trim and added oodles of Star Dust stickles on the falling snow. I embossed a strip of white card using a Swiss Dots folder and added a strip of red polka dots washi tape across the middle. The sentiment is also from a WRS Christmas Circles sentiment set and I added some red bias tape from The Ribbon Girl :-)

Thanks for looking :-) our lovely GD, Delphine and the DT have made some gorgeous cards so hop on over to the challenge blog to see them Smile
