Today I am participating in the very talented Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights!
Every month, Kylie pulls together a group of Stampin’ Up! Enthusiasts, picks a theme and highlights their creations on her blog!
She enables viewers to cast their vote on their favorite creation in the line-up!
The top 10 picks get to take part in a blog hop with Kylie.
I ranked in a tie for 6th last month, so I am counting on you all to help me hit TOP 5 this month!
The theme for January is Thank You. I hope you enjoy my Thank You Card for Kylie’s International Blog Highlights, please leave a comment on what you think!

I made this really simple but pretty card with a Brand New Stamp Set and Embossing Folder.

I think this color combination is really great and compliments the style of this bundle.
I actually filled my Aquapainter with Alcohol and dipped into the ink pad lids to color the whole scene.
I stamped all the images in Memento Black Ink.
I painted as follows:
Tree Leaves: Garden Green
Tree Trunk:Gray Granite
Geisha and Parisol: Real Red with touches of Basic Gray
Hair: Basic Gray
Skin: Petal Pink
I also added swishes of Real Red, Garden Green and a light touch of Gray Granite to ground everything and make them cohesive.
I added a drop or two of shimmer paint to the Spritzer and a drop of Gray Granite ink refill then topped with Alcohol and shook then sprayed the Gray Granite paper before running through the die cutting machine.
It helps to deepen the grooves in the paper when it is slightly wet.
I stamped the lamps inside and connected them with a Black Stampin’ Write maker.
I colored them in the same way as above but using Mango Melody ink with a tiny touch of Real Red ink.
Base: Real Red 4 1/4″ by 11″ score at 5 1/2″
Layer: Gray Granite 4 1/4″ by 3 1/2″
Layer: Whisper White 3 ” by 3 1/2″ and scrap for sentiment
Until next time,
