Quixotic Paperie Spotlight Hop-Elisabeth Bell

Morning everyone! Thanks for stopping by, another fun hop for you today:)

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

If you have landed here from JUDY then you are hoping in the right direction. If not then hop over to Elaine's blog Quixotic Cards to begin.

We have an extra special blog hop for you today. The Quixotic Paperie DT plus our very special guest the talented KimGruetzmacher (from Crafts By Kim and member of the Susana's Custom Art and Card DesignDesign 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.

Inside View:

For my Quixotic Paperie Elisabeth Bell SCACD Winter Window make:

I had such fun with this image, it's such a classic Elisabeth Bell design don't you think? I coloured her in with my copics, and for all the snow I used my super favourite glitter pen by Viva Decor in Holo. Before I got these pens I was all, how can they be better than other ones-especially since I have every Stickles colour but these Viva Decor's are far superior! For one, they actually dry how you apply them-with dimension!! Also, when you use them with digital images they don't smear the ink! I also used the yummy new Cosmo Cricket papers in Mitten Weather-love em! The poinsettas I made using a Marriane D die, and then popped some Viva Decor Ruby Red glitter on some of the edges.

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 stop on the hop is KIM-PaperBabe

Thanks very much for hoping 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!

P.S. This card will be available for purchase in my Etsy Shop.

Happy World Card Making Day! I actually can't believe it is that time again!!!

Celebrate World Card Making Day with a Festival of Favourites with the Quixotic Paperie Design Team!

The Quixotic Paperie DT thought it would be fun to mark this year's World Card Making Day with a mini blog hop looking at our favourite Quixotic Paperie DT projects, products from the shop and card making tips, so grab a cuppa and join us!

We would love to hear about your favourite projects, products from Quixotic Paperie or your favourite tips so feel free to share!

My favourite Quixotic Paperie make from this year has been this carousel I made much earlier in the year! The carousel showcases the fabulous Whimsy Spring Stepping horse. The Whimsy horses that are all stocked at Quixotic Paperie here have definitely been right up there with my fave releases this year!

Materials: Spring Stepping, vintage book pages, Shimmerz Spritz and Paints, and a bit of Perfect Pearls.

Here's some My Favourites!!!

My favourite Quixotic Paperie Products:

Stamps: Soooo hard to pick but all the Moonlight Whispers by Kraftin Kimmie have been so fab this year!

Paper: The New Memory Box range-right now I'm loving this BlackBird paper pack-perfect for Halloween makes!

My other favourites have most definetly been the gorgeous Lace and Ribbons Elaine always has in stock, I'm forever stocking up on lace and tulle! ooo and of course the new Viva Decor Glitters, Liners and Pearl Pens-totally replaced my Stickles these have-love em so much!!!

My favourite Tips:

My fave tip is to colour your images last-after the main part of your card is made so you know exactly what colours you're going to use! I always make my cards up in this order!

If you hop along to the following wonderful blogs, there's lots more to see and favourites being shared- hope you enjoy the hop!
