Hang those stockings with care.....

I just love my new set of Inkadinkado stamps!

I stamped this image in Versa Agean Blue and then kind of touched it up with brown marker and my gold leaf pen.

I cut it out with the scalloped rectangle nestabilites and outlined them in gold leaf pen also.

Geeez......I hope that thing never goes dry....I love it! It gives a real great glow to everything you mark.

I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment in Agean Blue and then used Adironack Brown to stamp overtop so it looks like there is a shadow --it kind of looked really blurry at first and I thought I was having a stroke......true story.

Then I took the good ol' gold leaf pen and highlighted it and then it wasn't soooo blurry.
This stamp set has a beautiful flourish, to which I added ink on just half of it. Again I shadowed it with the brown ink and highlighted with the gold.

I added a bit of gold thread, vanilla ribbon and a gold brad and now it looks like it is hanging up !-----as stockings do!!

Dashing off to eat supper--roasted turkey breast marinated in a secret sauce---hubby won't tell me ---this is his thing!!



  1. The gold leafing looks great around your scalloped edges...your enthusiasm for it makes me think I should dig mine out! ;) Thanks for the inspiration!!

  2. Very nice card. I like the blue instead of your usual red and green.

    I like that set too - almost got it myself....

  3. What beautiful cards! And I'm loving the nestabilities...can't wait to get some of my own to try out!
