Monday Mornings with Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps: Ellie

Happy Monday everyone!!  I'm thinking these Prickley Pear Monday Posts are making Mondays a lot more fun these days!  I'm always excited to show you something new from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps!!  Today's post features sweet little Ellie:


and some red and aqua love.  Aren't the two colors together divine?

I started off by stamping Ellie on several different colors of Echo Park Season's Greetings Papers.  I fussy cut each one out and paper-pieced them together.  I added some pink to her cheeks by dabbing the Blending Pen with an R 81 Rose Pink Copic Marker and lightly coloring her cheeks.  I added some jingle bells to her bow and layered her on top of the Prickly Pear Rubber Stamps Scalloped Oval Die.
I used the Viva La Verve October Week 4 sketch for this week's card:
and this is my completed card!!
Supplies Used:
Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps: Ellie
Papertrey Ink Papers:  True Black
Echo Park Papers and Stickers:  Season's Greetings
Sewing Machine
Jingle Bells from Michael's
Copic Markers: R81 and Blending Pen

Thanks for stopping by!!
Wishing you a wonderful Monday,
Kristii
