Quixotic Paperie Spotlight Hop-Elisabeth Bell

Morning everyone! Thanks for stopping by, another fun hop for you today:)

Welcome to the Quixotic Paperie Elisabeth Bell SCACD Winter Window Spotlight Blog hop.

If you have landed here from JUDY then you are hoping in the right direction. If not then hop over to Elaine's blog Quixotic Cards to begin.

We have an extra special blog hop for you today. The Quixotic Paperie DT plus our very special guest the talented KimGruetzmacher (from Crafts By Kim and member of the Susana's Custom Art and Card DesignDesign Team) have all been playing with the lovely new Elisabeth Bell SCACD Winter Window Stamp to give you lots of ideas for your Winter makes.

But the reason why this is an extra special blog hop is that it is an introduction to our new once a month Quixotic Paperie Challenge which this month is:

Christmas Is Coming

Make a Christmas card and/or gift and join in the challenge see Quixotic Inspirations for all the details.

Inside View:

For my Quixotic Paperie Elisabeth Bell SCACD Winter Window make:

I had such fun with this image, it's such a classic Elisabeth Bell design don't you think? I coloured her in with my copics, and for all the snow I used my super favourite glitter pen by Viva Decor in Holo. Before I got these pens I was all, how can they be better than other ones-especially since I have every Stickles colour but these Viva Decor's are far superior! For one, they actually dry how you apply them-with dimension!! Also, when you use them with digital images they don't smear the ink! I also used the yummy new Cosmo Cricket papers in Mitten Weather-love em! The poinsettas I made using a Marriane D die, and then popped some Viva Decor Ruby Red glitter on some of the edges.

For UK/ EU customers this beautiful stamp is available at Quixotic Paperie. If you're in the US/Canada you can buy it direct from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design.
