Christmas in July 26

 This card comes from one of my very favorite stamp set - Watercolor Winter.  It's a two-step stamping technique card.

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.

Please enjoy!
