Merry Christmas Lynette!

Welcome to the Merry Christmas Lynette Blog Hop! Today, the Sweet Pea Stamps design team are sharing a selection of creations as a surprise to Lynette, owner of Sweet Pea Stamps.
This image  is from Meredith Dillman and it is called AIRSHIPS. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with Stazon and colored it with distress reinkers.I embossed thebackground and sponged it... the screws are brads and I like the contrast of the rhinestones and the gears... Hope you like it

The drawing will be held 12/22 and the winner announced on the Sweet Pea Stamps blog. Thanks for stopping by, Merry Christmas and good luck!

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!
