To die for at FSC

Hello there, I'm still in Christmas mode with my project for our new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges where our theme is 'To die for', chosen by the lovely Joanna so get out your dies and punches and add some rubber stamping and join in to be in with the chance of a gift voucher from our regular sponsor Marina at Cottage Crafts.  I didn't know what to make for this challenge, but I was inspired by my talented teamie Fliss who created this wonderful Christmas decoration.

I've used spellbinders for the red die cuts and added kraft card along with backing papers from the Molly Bloom Christmas Carnival magazine., they've all been distress with antique linen distress ink and my kraft knife (as was my thumb ouch!), I've also added some faux stitching with a walnut promarker. The stamps are from the same collection, coloured I stamped the little boy and masked him to stamp in the stocking and then coloured the image with promarkers. The ribbon, raffia are from my stash and the buttons are also from the same kit.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Decorate to Celebrate: Holiday party
Eureka Stamps: holiday fun
I love promarkers: anything goes
One Stop Crafts: Christmas for the boys
Pixie Dust Studio: Winter holiday
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes
Totally Papercrafts: anything Christmassy but a card
