Today we are excited to show you the brand new Mi Ran, Crissy Armstrong and SC Design stamps and dies being released this month. To see a full reveal of all the stamps from todays sneak peeks please visit the Whimsy Inspirations Blog HERE.

Here is my creation for todays sneak peek. I've colored up one of Mi Ran's images called 'Letter to Santa' :

I love this image and as it is on the larger side I decided to keep the card CAS. I colored the image using Copics. The sentiment is from the *NEW* Christmas Moments sentiment set by SC Designs. I only embellished the card with a few tiny buttons and some Stickles to make the snow pop.


Here's a closer look on the image and a list of the colors I've used:

Skin: E50-E53-E55-E01-BV00-E93
Hair: E41-E43-E44-E47
Eyes: B24-B21
Red: R29-R24-R17-R14
Black: C9-C7-C5-C3
Green: G29-G24-G20
Snow: B00-B0000
White/Silver: C3-C1-C00

Here are the stamps I've used:

   


Here's today's hop list. Don’t forget to leave a comment at every stop along the hop to be entered into the draw to win a $15 gift certificate.
