Hot off the press....DS4J new releases

Good morning friends on a beautiful Sunday morning here in South Africa.

Today there are again some lovely new digi images released at  Digistamps4Joy and if you go to the blog you will be able to see the lovely cards made by some of the DT for your inspiration.

I decided to make a side step card this time. using the image Mini Misteri bearing gifts

Here is what I used.
Image is coloured with Distress inkpads and cut out.
The holly leaf background paper was made by putting a stencil through the cuttlebug and then going over the stencil with distress inks before removing it. I highlighted the berries with a Pontura pearl maker. I did the same with the star using a star stencil.
The printed paper is Christmas cottage by Teresa Collins
The star and Christmas tree are Marianne Design dies
Finished off with a sentiment mounted on a gold and green punch out.
Will enter the following challenges.
Hiding in my Craftroom #124...Die Cuts
Crafty Calender challenge...All things Christmas
Little Claire's Designs challenge #39...Christmas theme

Love Ursula
