TWO TURTLE DOVES

This image is "Two Turtle Doves" from "The Special Edition Ornament Collection" by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD being released today. Susanna is releasing TWO new mini stamp sets today for purchase in her store at 9:00AM (EST). One is the Elisabeth Bell for SCACD “The Special Edition Ornament Collection” and the other is by Victoria Case for SCACD “Everyday Gals” .

“The Special Edition Ornament Collection" consists of four beautiful holiday stamps. However, they have a lot of versatility . Three of the stamps are ornaments, but if you remove the outside of the ornament you can use the image in a different way – two images in one stamp. The fourth image can be used for various celebrations.

The “Everyday Gals” set by Victoria Case suit any woman of today. Whether you want a working woman or one of leisure, there is a suitable stamp.

I am entering this gift box in the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew Challenge - All That Sparkles and
Everybody Art Challenge - Little Gifts
ABC Challenge - E is for embossing - All parts of my image are heat embossed
Simon Says Challenge - Color Combo/Red and Green


I made a gift box from The Special Edition Ornament Collection – 2 Turtle Doves. The box is made from Reminisce Paper. All of the paper has embossing and glitter on it. I paper pieced the ornament by stamping it and heat embossing it on different paper, then cut it out. The image is colored with Copics and enhanced using Stickles on her dress. I used a Gold Spica pen to highlight her hair and bow, and on the beads. The two turtle doves are done with Shimmerez Pixie Dust. I really like the Pixie Dust. It is so white. Glitter dots were used for the berries on the holly and added some dimension. Of course, Flowersoft – Polar White was used for the snow. The FS is the best product I have used for realistic snow. These images are so versatile.


The edge around the box has ribbon with beads and bells. The bells actually ring when you shake the box. I haven’t decided exactly what I am going to put in the box – maybe, a couple of Christmas ornaments, candles or chocolate.

Be sure to check out the other DT samples – they are amazing !!
BE SURE AND HURRY TO THE STORE AT 9:OOAM (EST) TO GET THE STAMPS YOU WANT !!!

Thank you for stopping by and please, if you have time, leave a comment.
