Christmas in July 26
When there's a two-step stamp set I usually purchase it in wood rather than clear stamps. This allows me to make a permanent Stamp-a-ma-jig template with Staz-On ink and a transparent sheet. It makes the stamping go so much faster, and it's wonderfully consistent.
With this holly/ivy stamp I dug out the markers, colored the base stamp with Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green. Early Espresso then is stamped over the leaves and holly for definition. There's just a touch of red stickles to add a bit of sparkle.
Here I added a crumb cake piece cut with an edgelit, and some velvet ribbon.
