Merry Matryoshka Christmas

Hello! Hope you are all enjoying your Friday afternoon! I'm looking forward to this weekend- teaching a Christmas card class tomorrow and shopping with my sister on Sunday! I can't wait!

Today, I'm sharing a card using a new set out of the upcoming Occasions Mini from Stampin' Up! It's called My Matryoshka and it couldn't be cuter! Here is my card:

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: My Matryoshka set
Ink: Ruby Red, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Blush Blossom, Soft Suede classic inks; Jet Black Staz On
Paper: Soft Suede, Ruby Red cardstock; Watercolor paper; Sweet Pea DSP (also from the upcoming mini!)
Accessories: Pretty in Pink satin ribbon (upcoming mini), Hemp twine, Latte button assortment, Scallop Edge punch, paper piercer, Signo white gel pen, Blending pens

I colored my little dolls using blender pens and residual ink from my stamp pads. The image has tiny spots that were a little tricky coloring in with the Aqua painter so I switched it up and the blender pens worked great!

These stamps were also in a new format that Stampin' Up! will offer with the upcoming mini- repositionable clear mounting stamps! I can honestly say that the quality is superb and the image came out crisp and clear- just like a wood-mounted stamp. It is the same quality rubber and foam as they have always used, just with a cling layer to stick to acrylic blocks. I know a lot of people who will be very happy with this option! Hee!

Well, better get back to my Christmas cards... Thanks for stopping by today!

OMG Matryoshka stamps! I am an Aussue SU demonstrator (just started) and I really hope we get those in a future catalogue.
I love your card and you blog.
Have a great day,
