Hambo Stamps Blog Hop!

Hello all! Welcome to the Hambo Stamps Blog Hop!!! I think I am the final stop, so I hope you have managed to navigate your way here! My fellow (are those words?) have done a wonderful job and I congratulate them on their whimsical projects to honor our Hambo "Mom and Dad" Monica and Tim!

I have a fun new card featuring something old and something new!

This card uses one of their new digital stamps "Thief of Hearts" and an older one "Buildings/Ledge." I added the sentiment on the billboard by hand. For those of you who are Copic Junkies, I will list my color listing at the end of my blog post.

Christmas Cards

Now that my Christmas cards have made their way to their destinations (hopefully!), I can share them! It was a Stampendous Stamps Extravaganza this year. I decided to use some Fluffles the Cat and Changito the Monkey stamps for some fun-filled greeting cards. Instead of doing a ga-zillion cards exactly the same, I made four versions. Most of the papers were from the Basic Grey Collection. For some of them, I used the Stampedous Fake Flocking for the white on hats and mittens!

As ususal, I used Copic Markers to color the images...
