Jingle Bells!

With the new release of DRS Designs latest holiday stamps, I'm on a roll creating my Christmas cards for this year! I feel it's never too early to start, and the earlier the better!  Anything to help decrease the hectic hustle and bustle of the holidays is a "plus" in my book!

Here's another Christmas card I've made with the new DRS Christmas stamps.

The Bells and Bows image (K355) was colored with Copic Markers.  I distressed the edges around the image with Vintage Photo Desitressing ink.  I cut the Jingle Bell Greeting (G356) in half so each piece had 2 lines of text.  This made it easier to stamp the greeting on the 2 colors of cardstock I used in the layout.  That's one of the things I love best about DRS Designs unmounted stamps--they are so versatile and I can make them work for any idea I have!  This would have been a bit more difficult and time consuming had it been wood mounted.  I use EZ Mount to mount my stamps and then store them on cling sheet storage panels in 3 ring binders.  I have each binder labeled by theme so my stamps are always right at my finger tips and easy to find in a book shelf right next to my stamping table!

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for another great project coming soon, right here at Ink N Scrap Habits!

Have a great day!
