It's Christmas In July!

It's about that time for another Impression Obsession Challenge served up by the Design Team! It's a challenge you can play in! All you need to do is click HERE to find out about all the fun!

This beauty of a stamp is called Ice Skate Stockings (F2354 by Leigh Hannan) and will be released in about two weeks at CHA! Isn't it pretty? I love the crisp and clean look! I stamped it in permanent black ink and then stamped with a mix of Copic markers and accented it with some Copic Spica glitter pens. I did stamp the top of this twice so that I could cut out the bow and pop it up a bit! Use a Curved Rectangle die from Spellbinders for the main image and mat and... you're almost done! All you need now is some fun decorative paper in Christmas Colors! I also added a self stick silver pearl as my "nail" that was holding up my stocking. I know it is a bit shocking to see a Christmas card in July -- but I am going to "glass half full" it and say I am just one step closer to getting my Christmas cards done this year! :-)

I'll be back with another twice as nice Friday -- the Flourishes Focus will be a 'highlight' and you just might want to pull out your little black dress for this week's Stamp Simply challenge! Do you like those hints?

See you back here tomorrow!
