Jingle Belles - Christmas Feast

I'm sure those Corgi's are feasting on those candy canes as the children put together their gingerbread house.  I used my Tasha Tudor stamp again (click here for the card I made in April using it).  I usually like to stamp the images that I am going to watercolor in Basic Gray ink and I did this time too, but about half way through I started regretting that a bit.  I might have to try it in black also, though the softness of this doesn't look too bad IRL.  I'd love some constructive criticism.

I combined an MS border punch with a branch punch to fatten up the gingerbread garland.  Oh, and those tiny ginger bread men were also part of a border punch but I just chose to use the punch outs and added their little icing details with a gel pen.  

So I'm pretty sure that this is the last Jingle Belle challenge for 2014 and I want to thank Lauren and Stephanie for all the wonderful challenges and support they give throughout the year helping us to keep December a lot more manageable.  Merry Christmas ladies!


  1. you are MOST WELCOME, but really we should thank you for coming along with all your brilliant ideas!!! totally loving this card, the border ROCKS and the softness of the grey ink is the first thing i noticed; well, actually i didn't notice the grey, as such, i just wondered HOW you made it look like you just watercolored the whole scene freehand! (but for that matter i bet a version with black ink would look equally cool but totally different!) many thanks for being such an enthusiastic and inspiring JINGLE BELLE for all of these years, it wouldn't be the same without you! <3 <3 <3

  2. What a fun little image ... so glad you joined our Christmas Feast at Jingle Belles.

  3. You have a Tasha Tudor? I am jealous!

    1. I got very lucky last year about this time and found it on ebay for a decent price (under $15). Now I look there and they're all around $30 and out of my range.
