Playing with Christmas Stamps

While at the FSJ convention last week we got the opportunity to purchase some items from the Holiday Mini Supplement that will be released in a month or so.  Of course, I grabbed that opportunity.  And I came across 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown's current sketch challenge so I had to play.

I also used a new embossing folder by FSJ called "Happy Holidays" (page 189 in the online catty) and sequins from the "Holiday Elements" (page 210 online) collection.  I used "Kiwi Slice" (page 200 online) and "Candy Apple" (page 200 online) cardstocks along with some white from my stock.

Aren't the sequins just fab!!!  I colored this little guy with watercolor pencils and my aquaflow brush.

I used 3 different inks, "Black Licorice", Kiwi Slice", and "Candy Apple" (pages 210 & 211 online).  I  really need to get more cards made as I am so far behind with getting my Christmas cards made.  Head on over to 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and check out the cards!

PS Soon I will be able to give direct links to FSJ products but the new website is still working out the glitches. The catalog is on my site, just click on the FSJ logo at the top of my sidebar then click on catalog.  You can download it to your computer.  There are some new products that have different availability dates so, if you want to order, please check my FSJ Specials page for that info.
