STAMPlorations Christmas Release -The Bee's Knees Stamps

It's day three of the STAMPlorations Christmas release week, and today we're showcasing my stamps.  I've got two sets for you, Christmas Elf and Three Kings.


Let's start off with a little laid-back number:


But he has been hard at work, honest!  Look, he's brought you a present:


On to the Three Kings set.  For this first card I used everything but the kings.  I stamped all the images, adding another hill line, then added the wash afterwards, then spritzed with water.  Once dried, I mounted the panel onto dark blue card.


I don't often make stepper cards, but this set lends itself to that style of card:


I stamped, coloured and fussy-cut the images, then adhered them to the different steps.  (I did some zen doodling on the Kings' clothing first.)  The embossed paper has been in my stash forever.  I think it was a sheet of wrapping paper originally.  I stamped the sentiment, then mounted the panel onto a kraft panel.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team, and don't forget to leave comments for your chance to win.
