This is a FUN hop we have for you today! The theme is OUT OF THE BOX...and what I and the design team are showing you today is how to use ordinary stamps to make your Christmas Cards!
I used this stamp from Elizabeth Bell called Standing Pretty. I colored her with Christmas colors using STAEDTLER karat aquarell watercolor pencils. Then I added her to a background that I created using an embossing folder and coloring it in with STAEDTLER triplus fineliners.
I added some felt flowers and a rub on sentiment and here is my creation!
Please make sure that you comment on every blog to entered to win a $20 gift certificate to the Sweet Pea Stamps store!

The next stop on the hop is Ellen Kristiansen's...be sure to stop by and leave her some love!
Thanks for popping in!
