Jingle Balls

You have no idea how long I've waited to use this stamp from Whipper Snapper. I ordered it last year AFTER the holidays and I've been dying to ink it up. This is Christmas card #10. Hey, I'm gettin there!

Well, I wanted to do something a little different with this stamp so I pulled out the 'ol SU Kraft and decided to stamp them on that. I colored them with my Lyra pencils and they just POP off that Kraft CS now don't they? I matted them with some Riding Hood Red and stitched around the edges. That's become a common thing for me lately hasn't it? I really like the look of the stitching though. It just adds that handmade look which I love! The card base is Kraft as well and the DP is from My Minds Eye. Love this plaid. Cute-cute-cute!! I punched the bottom edge of the DP with my SU scalloped border punch and did the same for the Riding Hood Red mat. I tied on some taffeta ribbon and that about does it. Ain't it cute? They just look like they oughta be bouncing all around singin', don't they? Don't forget to leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Have a great day!

Supplies:
Rubber Stamp - Whipper Snapper; CS - SU Kraft & Riding Hood Red; Lyra Pencils; Punch - SU Scalloped Border; Ribbon - SU Taffeta

  2. Hi Bex,
    I've never used the Polychromos but from what I'm reading about them, I think they would work just fine. Another set that is great for Kraft paper is Koh-I-Noor. They don't have many colors but it's a great set to add to your collection. Thanks for leaving a comment and have a great day!
