Tickled Pink Stamps Pinkettes in Review - Coraline

Hello, blogland! I'm sorry I've been so quiet this week! I have no excuse except to say that I caught up on some housework, spent quality snuggle time with my small man, and have started on Christmas preparations! A few presents have been purchased, the tree is up (though not decorated yet), and last night my son had his pictures taken with Santa! Okay, so I had to bribe him with a new Hot Wheels car to get him to cooperate, but a mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do, right?! lol I am officially in the spirit and ready to tackle Thanksgiving next week! Except now I have projects piling up and deadlines looming so I'd better start sitting my crafty a$$ down at my scrap desk every night! lol And that is just what I did to finish this fun, festive holiday card to show you!

Tickled Pink Stamps has some fabulous images, as you know, and one of their collections is the Lil Pinkettes! With a new year, and new releases, fast approaching we wanted to take some time to do a {PINK} review with you! We want to make sure you didn't miss an image you love so the Pinkette design team members each selected their favorite to show you this month. For November we were to chose from August, Coraline, or Pippa! I think these are my three favorites so it was hard to decide, but when it came down to it I selected Lil Haunting Pinkette Fairy Coraline. And would you look what I did with her? I made her a Christmas fairy! Just to illustrate how versatile these adorable images are!

I love sketches! So how could I resist Kellie's beaut that she created for this week's Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge?! It wasn't my team's week to post a creation so I decided to use it for this project instead. Papers are from a retired Stampin' Up collection called Holiday Treasures. A little dry embossing, a few of my usual embellies (flowers, pearls, and a snowflake charm) plus some Stickles on her wings make this fairy deck the halls ready!

Be sure to head over to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to see what gorgeous things my immensely talented and awe-inspiring team mates have shared with us!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous weekend planned!

Regan this card is beautiful. The coloring is perfect and the papers you incorporated into the sketech could fit any better together. Of course I love the pearl bling but I'm a sucjer for twine and a metal charm. You may have been away for a while but it's obvious your creative juices have been working over time.

Kellie said...

WOWEE You know how to bring an image to life huh! I absolutely love this Regan! Thank you for making an amazing review card Pinkette ;) xx

Hi Regan! First of all your post made me giggle- a mom can totally take liberties when she needs to and pics with Santa are important :) I'm so loving this card, especially how you made Coraline into a Christmas fairy...that's total genius and I just might have to work that into my holiday cards! And you have definitely made me want to try that sketch now. Thanks for the inspiration- I've been in need of it with all the holiday cards on my list :) Hope you have a great week! Hugs, Katie

Very creative to make her a Christmas fairy and of course you've made her beautiful! Love all of the different textures and shapes you've used as well in this design. Beautiful card.
