Sweet Stamps Challenge #22 Christmas

All month long Sweet Stamps is having a Christmas in July sale, all Christmas and Winter stamps are 25% off.  So the design team will be using these stamps all month to give you inspiration.  Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is.....

CHRISTMAS!!

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.


I used Christmas Rose Candle, Two Rose Spray, and Holly Sprig stamping them in Tuxedo Black Momento Ink on White Cryogen paper.  All coloring was done with Copics.  I cut the Two Rose Spray out adding the Holly Sprigs on each end to match the Christmas Rose Candle.  My sentiment of choice was Merry Christmas Fancy which is stamped with a black pigment ink and embossed with black embossing powder.   Cheery Lynn's Italian Flourish Doily is one of my layers and the rose in the corner is from I Am Roses.  The DP's used are from Jovial from Basic Grey and Christmas Comb from Die Cuts With a View.  The finished size is a 6" square.

Copics Used:
Roses: R27, R46, G85, YG95, BG72
Candle: B0000, B000 and Spica Glitter
Holder: E81, and Spica Gold
Holly Leaves: R17, YG25, YG67

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!

Beautiful card, Bonnie. Very clever to use the stamps to match the roses and holly on the image. Love the layout and doily behind the image.

Love the colors you used and the use of the holly with the roses. The doily with the green background really reminds me of Christmas.
