A Bit of Holly Jolly Stamping!

Well, hello Monday! It's time for some Holly Jolly stamping!

If you're a stamper, this is the best time of the year! From holly to trees, Santa to sentiments, there are so many amazing stamps for the season. We challenge you to use a favorite or perhaps never before used holiday stamp this week and join us in the fun!

This week, I am playing with a wonderful new stamp line I've just discovered - Santoro stamps from London! I just love this little elfin girl with her nightcap and candle!

I decided to go with traditional Christmas colors on this card. I started by stamping my images on the Bristol board, then coloring them with markers as well as using the markers to watercolor with. And, yes, you might notice my mistake - the dark blob by her hair. I tried to white it out, and then just covered it up.

You may have noticed, I do not usually reach for cute stamps, but there is something about this line of stamps that I just love. Bet you will be seeing more from me!

All right, now it's your turn to dig out your favorite holly jolly stamp and get stamping! I can't wait to see what you come up with! 

I also wanted to wish a very Happy Hanukkah to all of you who celebrate the Festival of Lights!
