Nobody Puts Kringlet in the Corner!

This is one of the most exciting blog posts for me since I've been back stamping. I get to start off our blog hop for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design's new Winter Wonderland Collection from Victoria Case! I'm so excited to be part of this great, fun and exciting event! So let's get started and I hope you're ready for some absolutely fabulous projects and images!

My favorite time of the year is the Christmas holiday season. I love getting a jump start and one of my favorite things about the season is holiday candy. We have it everywhere - on tables, kitchen counters, on the dash in my car, you name it and you'll find Christmas candy around. and it's always front and center stage, never hidden in a corner. That's why when I got the opportunity to present this little cutie, I knew she would never be made to be put in a corner! Meet Kringlet! She's one of the new stamps from the Winter Wonderland Collection from Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and I think she's fabulous! My Kringlet and all the other fabulous stamps will be available for purchase from Susana tomorrow, Friday, October 16th! I don't want you to miss a single one!



This sweetie has so much that I love about the season. She's a sweetie pop that gives her all, she's giving her heart. She reminds me so much of both of my girls and their generosity during the holiday season. I stamped her with Staz-On and colored her with distressed inks. I cut her out and mounted her on the new Poinsettia nestabilities and used some velvet red paper and embossed paper and gold linen paper. I love the rich colors!



I tied a wide red tulle ribbon around a clear glass bowl and filled her with some peppermints. I finished her off by adding some Stickles to her dress and hat and Diamond Glaze to her heart and a bit of Smooch to her hat and sleeves. How cute is she? It's that exciting time for me when I get to bring a gorgeous image to life and present it to the world. Hang on to your hats because this little cutie, Kringlet, is going to have your running for your Christmas elf hats!



Doesn't she have the greatest, sweetest face? I love that you can color her eyes and I added a tiny bit of Diamond Glaze to her eyes. I could color her all day long!

Before you go, tell me what's you're favorite holiday treat? I love peppermints, like you can't tell! Now head on over to see Danni and see what great stamp she gets to present to you!

Wow what a wonderful embellishment for a candy dish! I love it. One of my favorite treats of the holiday when I was little was the hard candy. We'd get the ribbons, the filled raspberries and others. I loved the raspberries! The ribbon candy was pretty yummy too. Thanks for sparking my creativity!
