Soldiers get down


     I can't believe it's Friday again already.  I know things have been pretty quiet around here.  They will be through the new year.  I need the down time and I want to enjoy the holidays and family.
     So...since it's Friday that means it's time for a Stamping Bella creation.  This was the last challenge of the year and it was this challenging sketch.


     I used Christmas Soldiers and just inked up three of the soldiers on the stamp individually.  The ornaments were cut with a Memory Box ornament die that didn't quite cut like I was expecting it to.  LOL  I made it work anyway.  The scallops were cut with a Pretty Pink Posh die and I used some of their Christmas mix sequins too.


     You can pop over to Blogabella and see what the rest of the team and the Sistahood created.
Have an awesome weekend!

Supplies:
Paper--Simple Stories "Handmade Holiday", Recollections, Copic XPress-it Blending card
Stamps--Stamping Bella "Christmas Soldiers"
Ink--Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Versamark
Tools--Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 2, Memory Box Small Globe Ornament
Miscellaneous--Pretty Pink Posh Classic Christmas Mix sequins, Ranger Gold embossing powder, DMC gold thread

  7. I was so happy to see this on your blog today! I bought this stamp as it's hubby's birthday over the Christmas holiday and I thought it would suit him perfectly. I haven't inked it up yet as I wasn't too sure about the layout, but your gorgeous card has given me plenty of food for thought. Thank you so much for the inspiration! Hugs, Tracey xx
