Christmas Cocktail-Four Ways

Hello fellow stampers and friends.  Today I’m using Technie Junkie’s Christmas Cocktail and made four styles for you.  I just love this stamp. It is perfect for those friends who enjoy a drink for the holidays.  I also like it for the humour on it.

I created a colourful stamped out image by placing my image in my Misti and colouring small areas at a time with a Tombow and SU markers right onto the stamp.  Then I huff to rewet the marker and repeat approximately three times per area so I get a nice crisp colour.  I found it relaxing while I watched Christmas movies on TV.  Yes indeed, I’m in the Christmas spirit.

The bow die came from a UK papercrafts magazine.

Here I used gold paper from Paper Garden.ca.  It is nice and heavy and comes in many colours.  I embossed my background with a poinsettia-like embossing folder.

I don’t often use ribbon, so I wanted to see how ribbon would look with this image.

Now for my favourite version.  Sadly, I ruined the right hand side as the black was not even.  Again, I used the gold from Paper-Garden.ca.

Which one is your favourite?

I’m hopelessly addicted to Hallmark Christmas movies, so I get you! This stamp is so much fun, and your stamping technique works beautifully with this stamp! I agree…like the last one the best, but… that first one sorta looks like a menu cover at a high end restaurant! Well done, as always!
