WISH upon a star!

Well, my wish already came true...
I'm a Whipper Snapper Featured Designer!! {Ok-ok, you know how excited I am but I just can't help blurting it out every now and then) Whooopeee!
I just love this little angel, don't you? This little card uses all three of the newly released Whipper Snapper Design sets by Anna Wight. The angel is from the Spirit of Christmas and I used two different quilt block designs from both the Winter and Homespun Quilt sets.

The angel is stamped directly onto the SU Kraft card base and I colored her with my Lyra pencils. I stamped the quilt squares onto a separate piece of SU Kraft CS and colored them with pencils too. I matted the strip of quilt squares onto some SU Real Red CS and punched the bottom edge with my SU border punch. I stitched along the edges of the piece and adhered it to the card base. The sentiment is actually one long phrase so I just inked up half and stamped and then stamped the other half below. I punched it out with my SU 1 3/8" circle punch and matted it with some SU Real Red punched with the SU scalloped circle punch. I tied on some Papertrey Ink Poppy Red ribbon and used a fine black pen to make the dots around the edge. I added some Diamond Dust to her wings and wand for that last finishing touch!
Now, on to the ornament....

I knew this paper mache' star I found at Michael's would come in handy one day... It fits this angel perfectly!! I stamped the image and the sentiment using my Stamp-a-ma-jig so it would be centered just right. I colored the image with my Lyra pencils and tied a bow at the top. I added the same black dots around the edges as I did on the card. I think they'd make a cute gift, don't you?

Leave a comment below and let me know what you think of them.... Have a great day!
