All Things Christmas

As most of you know  I just simply adore all things Christmas. I can't get enough of it. Year round, whether checking out my favorite websites or shopping around the Florida scrapbook stores, I am always on the lookout for my next favorite Christmas stamp or some fabulous holiday paper for my next Christmas card. But I know I am not the only one who feels this way, so I guess that makes my OBSESSION a little less crazy.

With all that being said, this is my newest rubber stamp addition to my holiday favorites. It's a rubber stamp from IO called Candy Jars. These peppermint buttermints, rock candy lollies, cheerful green gumballs and wintergreen and peppermint candy cane sticks will delight any Christmas enthusiast.

I had tons of fun coloring in this rubber stamped image with my Copic markers. I also used several products from Stampin'Up! to complete this card. The card base is Whisper White card stock and the red card stock is Cherry Cobbler. I also used a Cherry Cobbler sheer linen ribbon that was from last year's holiday Stampin'Up! catalog. Then I tied a delicate little bow onto the sheer linen ribbon with Stampin'Up!'s new metallic silver thread and on top of that finished it off with the smallest size of the vintage faceted designer buttons from Stampin'Up! And the Framelit dies make die cutting out an image backed with a fun scallop that coordinates super easy. Oh, and remember, anytime you are coloring in your image you will want to use Memento Ink.

Thanks for taking a peek at my Christmas card. I hope it has inspired you! Are you interested in shopping with me or do you have a question? Click on any of the links above to go to my Stampion'Up! store or contact me with your questions. I'd love to hear from you.

Happy Crafting! Shan
