I made this one using a masking technique and I actually managed to take pics of the process!! Soooooooooo I hope to share with you a tutorial on this in the next few weeks!!
The set comes with 4 different sentiment choices. I used "Sing a Joyful Song of Christmas" and added inside a little brass bookplate which I secured with red brads.
I colored the images with Copics and added some liquid applique to the trim of Maggies Dress and Cape. As always with my Christmas cards I had to apply a touch of stickles!!

Wow that was a a lot of challenges!! Anyway back to the previews and the second preview I have a another adorable set, this time it's another favorite of mine, Charlie Nativity by Laurie Wilson. These will also be released at Clear Dollar Stamps on the 1st.
For this one I stamped the images twice and colored them with tombow markers. The images have been raised with foam dots to create dimension. I dont know if the photo shows it really well but the images have been painted over with Shimmerz and they really sparkle!!
I created the barn using one of My Cuttlebug folders and went over the raised part with markers!! Sentiment which comes with this stamp set reads "Away in a Manger"
