So far we have covered Christmas cookies and Yuletide deer. Today, on the third day of the STAMPlorations Christmas Release we are showcasing stamp sets from the talented Shirley of Bee's Knees. Hope you are still having fun hopping along with us and getting inspired for Christmas. I'm enjoying getting the whole business of card crafting ticked off the good old "to-do" list! Don't forget to hop along and leave comments for your chance to win!
For my card, I couldn't resist having a play with those hilarious elf legs just dangling off the edge of the card. I started by stamping the legs from Shirley's Christmas Elf stamp set and colouring them with Copics. I then die cut the panel using the Crazy Double Running Stitched Rectangle die and masked off a smaller rectangle as well as the lanky legs. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to ink through the ARTplorations Holly Background stencil, using colours to match the Christmas-y leggings of our little elf. I stamped one of the fun sentiments from the elf set and matted the panel onto green card.
