Box of Chocolates Miller from Simply B Stamps

Happy New Year!  I hope this new year brings you all many blessings and much happiness.  I love New Year's Day as it's a fresh start for bigger and better things to come.  One of those is the new line of Teen Scene stamps from Simply B Stamps called Steampunk Valentine.  I love these stamps and was so excited to color each one and create something fun to share.

First up we have Box of Chocolates Miller and he is just so cute!  I love his top hat and jacket, not to mention that cute little box of candy.

For the base of this card I used a lovely shade of olive Bazzill.  I tend to be very partial to green so I always have a variety of shades in my stash!  The prints are both from the Pyrus collection from Basic Grey.  That's an older line from 2010 but it remains a favorite of mine.  My image is colored with Copics and I did distress around the edges with Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  My sentiment is from Dream Impressions Box of Chocolates stamp set that is quite old and the company has unfortunately gone out of business.  Both image and sentiment are layered on Bazzill.  I added a little velvet ribbon from my stash as well a some pearls.  I think he turned out pretty darn cute and I'm pleased!  I hope you like him too and again, Happy New Year!  I hope you'll be joining me on my blog from time to time to see what I've been up to!  I look forward to seeing you here.  

Thanks for stopping by!
