Christmas Blessings

Hello Everyone! I had the chance to play for a little while last evening after the boys went to bed. Back in July when the catty first came out I purchased a new Christmas set, Christmas Blessings. I really love the line drawings, and sentiments. It was another one of the sets that spoke to me, and I considered it a must have. :)  Here is my first sample using the set -
I really think this sets line drawings lent itself to the DSP Be Of Good Cheer too. It has a vintage feel, so I went with it. :) I stamped my images 2 times in Early Espresso, heat set, then colored them with my Cherry Cobbler re-inker and an aqua painter. the center of the poinsettia is colored with a little bit of More Mustard and a blender pen. I punched one the colored images out using the 1 3/4" circle and then cut the other out and popped it up onto the first one to give it the out of the box appearance. I really like the outcome, and now I only have about 97 more to go. :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
