Dearie Dolls Christmas

Hi everyone! I've got a project that's just for fun today.... it's been a while since I've had time for that. :)

I've found a brand new digi stamp line called Dearie Dolls and they are just so stinkin' cute! You really have to stop over at Mary Ellen's Etsy Shop to see them all.

This week's Stamping Sisters in Christ devotional was about many members as one body. It was certainly a blessing to me and I hope you can check it out. The challenge for the week was a "Choose at least 3" and I am using Ribbon, Brad, Charm and Popped up image.

My flowers and ribbon were originally white, but I colored them with ProMarkers to match the design. You can find the tutorial for the flowers here. The snowflake charm is recycled from a little gift package I received some time ago. I've added stickles to the snow and doodled around the edges.

Stamps: Dearie Dolls and Raindrop Echo Designs Warm Winter Wishes Sentiment
Paper: DCWV, Kraft
ProMarkers: Ivory, Blush, Baby Pink, Arctic Blue, Sky Blue, Azure, Powder Blue, Violet, Lilac, Lavender, Ice Grey 1, 2, 3, Moss, Marsh Green, Poppy, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Tan
Accessories: Snowflake Charm, Snowflake Brads, Handmade Flowers, Ribbon and Lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon, Flatback Rhinestones, Stickles
