Cute Little Elf


This week the Stampendous team has joined up with the fabulous team over at May Arts Ribbon to bring you some great projects!  Today I'm sharing a fun holiday card created with Teddy Bear Kiddo - I love that sweet little kiddo.

I kept the card pretty simple, and just added a bit of red/green reversible satin stitched edge ribbon.  I paired my cute stamp with a sentiment from the Tis the Season clear stamp set, and two jumbo sets - Merry Magical and Sparkle Joy (to create the red and green background).

Be sure you head over to my Stampendous teammates' blogs to see what pretties they are sharing today!


And remember - you can pick up this adorable Teddy Bear Kiddo stamp (along with a huge variety of other fun Stampendous stamps and essentials) and a large selection of May Arts ribbon at i {heart} papers!

Supplies:
Stamps: Tis the Season, Teddy Kiddo, Merry Magical, Sparkle Joy (Stampendous) 
Card Stock: Black, Red (Bazzill); White (Mohawk) 
Ink: Barn Door (Ranger); Forest Green (Stazon); Tuxedo Black (Memento) 
Coloring Medium: alcohol markers 
Accessories: Ribbon (May Arts); Bling (Queen & Co)
