Today I am sharing a card created with one of the many new stamps available now at IO Stamps, Holly Joy (D19654).


For this card I stamped the Holly Joy stamp on 80# Hammermill Color Cover Digital copy paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I use this Hammermill paper often as a cost-friendly layering-weight alcohol marker paper.  I colored the image with Copic Markers. I added Gold Wink of Stella to the stripes, and then trimmed out the panel with a stitched rectangle die.  I layered my colored panel with a pieces of gold foil cardstock, and a white cardstock panel that I had embossed using the Snowflake Swirl embossing folder and a red card base.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Stop by again tomorrow for more new Fall/Winter fun!  Your next stop in the hop should be Daniela Dobson's blog.  

Here is the whole list of Blog Hop participants:
