Sweet Stamps Sweeties Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the SweetStamps.com Sweeties Holiday Blog Hop!!

With the Holidays right around the corner we thought it would be fun to share some lovely Holiday inspiration with you!

You should have arrived here from Roxies blog!  If you haven't and would like to hop with us, please go back to the Sweet Stamps Blog to start at the beginning!

**Be sure to leave comments along the way for your chance at winning!  We will randomly choose one winner from all the comments left! The winner will be announced Monday Dec 15 on the SweetStamps Blog with the new challenge.**

 I just love this Piccolo Accents set called The Christmas Story.  I embossed it carefully with Enamel Embossing Powders- they have shimmer in them which is hard to capture here.
 I used Ranger Chipped Sapphire mixed with Gesso to paint this ornament, then I direct to ornament applied more of the ink on the ornament (and all over my hands too).
 I used Enamel EPs on the accents: Aged White on the angels and on Baby Jesus, Mermaid Tears on Joseph and the Three Kings, and Deep Sky Blue for Mary.  There is a touch of 24K Gold on Jesus' halo.  I also used Honey Mustard 3D enamel Gel on the star.
  I applied the accents and the beaded trim with Crystal effects.

 Thanks for stopping by!  Your next stop will be Teresas blog!  We hope you are inspired all along the way!
