Christmas at The Stampman

Its Christmas at The Stampman for the next 2 weeks and our challenge is to see your anything goes Christmas cards!  If you make your own and havent started yet, now is the time to panic lol!  Pop over to the challenge blog to see the team creations and meet one of our newbies Sarah.

For this challenge I have used my favourite Bling Maiden stamp, you can really use her for ANYTHING!  I've already made a winter verson of her in blues with snowflakes so I went for the more traditional red/green/gold combo for this one.

I've stamped and embossed in moonglow poinsettia red/green, coloured with a fern green aqua marker and I'm such a bad mummy but I nicked the kids metallic confetti for her hair!  The background is the red and green from the starburst stains holiday wreath set using the scrunch technique then sprayed with black webbing spray Jill has in the shop.  I've also stamped the awesome Hero Arts fabulous flourish stamp in a gold brilliance ink in the corners.
