Quixotic & SCACD Winter Window Spotlight Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Quixotic Paperie Elisabeth Bell SCACD Winter Window Spotlight Blog hop.

If you have landed here from Rowena Barnard then you are definitely hopping in the right direction. If not then hop over to Elaine's blog to begin.

We have an extra special blog hop for you today. The Quixotic Paperie DT plus our very special guest the talented Kim Gruetzmacher (from Crafts By Kim and member of the Susana's Custom Art and Card Design Design Team) have all been playing with the lovely new Elisabeth Bell SCACD Winter Window Stamp to give you lots of ideas for your Winter makes.

But the reason why this is an extra special blog hop is that it is an introduction to our new once a month Quixotic Paperie Challenge which this month is...

Christmas Is Coming

Make a Christmas card and/or gift and join in the challenge see Quixotic Inspirations for all the details.

For my Quixotic Paperie Elisabeth Bell SCACD Winter Window

I have stamped then coloured using copic markers, I've fussy cut out and applied viva decor pearl onto the snow mounds atop the window and shutters. For the icicles I have squeezed on a little of viva decor glitter pen (hope you can see it in one of the pics). The shutters I have folded out from the main window.

I have based my card on Mercy's fabulous Tuesday sketch challenge #95 although I have turned it on it's end... a little creative license tee hee!

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Cosmo cricket:  mitten weather; Kraft cardstock;
Ink: Memento: black; copics makers(as pictured);
Dies: Spellbinders: scallop borders; Sizzix: flower;
Other: natural twine; Viva Decor: glitter liner; pearl pen; buttons; 3D foam;

For UK/ EU customers this beautiful stamp is available at Quixotic Paperie. If you're in the US/Canada you can buy it direct from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design.
You next port of call is wonderful talented Jacqui Dennis Thanks so much for hopping by and enjoy the rest of the inspiration. Don't forget to join in on our new challenge...there is a fabulous prize up for grabs!
