Merry Christmas by Alison

Hello Stampers, I have my first project of the month ready to share with you, using the fabulous FREE STAMPS - Icicles Border & Snowflakes. All you need to do, is place an order in December, & one will be sent out to you.

I started off by covering a square piece of card with calendar design Tissue Tape. Next, I inked it with cloudy blue alcohol ink. I stamped the Icicles at the top, using pearl paint dabber, then stamped some Snowflakes with teal blue Stazon.

I stamped the New York scene from Tim Holtz' Rockstar plate in black archival ink along the bottom of the card, then again on some kraft card which I cut out & glued to my artwork. I stamped the Merry Christmas ticket from Tim's Odds & Ends plate onto a die cut ticket, edged it with teal blue stazon & used Tim's tiny attacher to staple it onto my artwork.

I edged my piece with the blue stazon, matted it on black card, then onto a white square card, & finished it off with some pearly stars & gems.

Thanks for looking xxx
