i am (finally) releasing some new Christmas stamps for y’all!!!  there was somewhat of a delay at the manufacturer which was disappointing but i am glad to finally have them in my hot little hands!

i have TWO frame stamps designed to fit the Scallop Rectangle Nestibilities die.  These are drawn by my mom, Marty Ayo, a fantastic porcelain artist and long time painter.

I also have TWO GORGEOUS art stamps.  These are done from pen and ink drawings by my brother, Dr. James Banos.  He is also a long time, accomplished artist and i was thrilled when he agreed to let me do some stamps with his artwork.  These stamps are incredibly detailed and very versatile.  They can be colored in OR used without coloring in for folks who aren’t into coloring.

i have SO many ideas for these but not nearly enough time to do them all – especially all at once!  but i do have a few samples for you and you can check out what Cheryl and Sandie have done with them also!

for this card i paired the candle frame up with an ADORABLE little snowman peeking out of a stocking from Peachy Keen stamps.

both images are colored with copics.  i used something new on the stocking cuff and ball of the snowmans hat.  it is called sparkle fluff and was in my DT goodie box from Susana.   let me tell you this stuff is awesome!  it is so soft you can’t feel it when you pick it up and it has little sparklies in it.  i used it just like i use flower soft and it is like velvet – very cool effect!  i will be using it more often!  it comes in LOTS of colors.






next up is the snowflake border.  i thought this little snowman and sentiment from Hampton Arts were a nice fit!  of course he has a couple snowflake skittles too!  i expect these to be back in stock this week!!

i stamped both the frame and sentiment with encore blue metallic ink.  i love how it adds just a little something extra to the main image panel!

 i will have some samples with the others on wednesday!  posted along with details of the big sale!!

better blog siggy
