BnW DT- Christmas Blog Hop 2

Happy Monday everyone!!

I hope you had a lovely, peaceful and productive weekend, and that you remembered that today it is a Special day for you Bells 'nd Whistles fans. Elisabeth has done it again. She gave us some more lovely designs to choose from, and Summer is giving you these lovely new babes in rubber :) Yippee!!

Yes, here comes the SECOND Christmas release with six new designs to choose from. These stamps are on pre-order as from later today, and will be shipping as from 1st December. Hurry to pre order though, they will be available only for a short time, as Christmas is very near now. But I promise you that you will be in love with them!










If you just happened to come here, and you wish to participate in our Blog Hop, and obviously be eligible to win a free set of these stamps, start the Hop from the

Belles 'nd Whistles Blog.

There you can read the details, and you will be directed through each DT member's blog till you reach the end.

If you came here from Nikki's blog, then you are right on track..keep reading :)

What do I have for you today?







It is the gorgeous

Two Turtle Doves


Isn't it cute and lovely? I fell in love immediately, from the first day I saw this design. You remember the Classic song "On the First Day of Christmas?" Yes it brings me so many lovely memories.

I decided to go for a classy and elegant look this time, and with this stamp I created an easel card, and a paper gift bag. It will hold some perfume and other things like that, a gift for a lovely lady. Yes I found a perfume that matches the seafoam clour, so that it will be part of the gift :)

The sketch is from last week's Friday Sketchers. It was one of my talented friend's: Jacque. I liked it, but didn't have time to try it last week. So I decided to use it today :)This is my first easel card, and I really had fun making it. I used Papermania Joyeux Noel Paper, I'm loving these as well. They have fun designs, and classy ones.. all in the same pack. Thank you Anna, if you read this, for these lovely papers.






The open view of the card.


I coloured my Belles with Copics, and tried to keep to the style as possible. I added Stickles for some sparkle (who does not love that extra sparkle on Christmas cards? :) and some shine with a gold glitter pen. I don't know if this is visible in the photos. If not try to click on each photo for a better view.I also added half pearls and gold embellies to co ordinate. Then I added touch of Seafoam colour (greenish blue). I think it made a lovely effect, do you?





A sidevew of the card.

Laced ribbon is from stash, as also the bow, embellishments and gold corners on bag. Sentiments: round is Stampin Up, the others are computer generated and a Studio G.
It wasn't easy finding things that matched these particular colours, but thank God I succeeded :) I hope you liked what you see, and that it inspires you to create your own gift bags this Christmas. At least, to those closest to you (as these take quite some time to finsh as a set).







Now off you hop to Erin, but before you do, please leave me a comment here, let me know what you think of this set, and leave also some love at my other fellow DT friends. I'm sure you like what you see.

Have a lovely week, and remember to make someone smile with a handcrafted creation :)


Thanks for looking

What an elegant set Rosette! Love the red and gold color combo with a hint of some other colors. So calm and quiet - perfect for christmas! And it even matches the bottle that - probably - will go into the bag.
A really awesome job!
Big hugs to you!
