A Very Merry Christmas Guest Designer

Good evening!

Tonight I have some exciting news to share...Theresa Momber has asked Selma Stevenson and I to be her guest designer's this month for her new A Very Merry Christmas stamp set . OMGosh! I was completely shocked that she would ask me. I absolutely love Theresa's work, she is amazing and an extremely talented artist!! This is such an honor and I can not thank Theresa enough.
Tonight Selma is in the spotlight so be sure to first hop on over to Theresa's blog to see what Selma has created for her to share and then hop to Selma's blog and check out what else she has made with A Very Merry Christmas.

Before you hop away, I want to share a couple of projects I have made with A Very Merry Christmas.
This set is my favorite one of Theresa's so far. It is just gorgeous and I have been having so much fun with it.

First up I have a magazine holder gift set. The magazine holder holds 3x4 inch note cards.

The holly branch was stamped on ivory pure luxury paper with rich cocoa ink and colored with copics. I used the holly branch embossing folder on the cranberry crisp cs and added a bit of silver cord around the top of the note card. I kept the note cards fairly simple because I wanted the focus to be on the holly branch image.
Here is how I finished off the inside of the card.
Next up I want to show you some of Theresa's gorgeous digi paper, Deck the Halls. I love, love, love this paper and know you will too!
All of the images in this set look fantastic whether colored with copics/markers, colored pencils, watercolored or embossed. So I wanted to show you one that was just embossed.
The bells were embossed with gold ep on white pure luxury paper.
The papers on this card are All Spruced Up and Good as Gold. The ribbon and button are from the Holiday Assortment.
Thank you for stopping in to visit and letting me share my exciting news with you.
I off to visit Theresa and Selma's blogs, come join me.
