Oh, these Christmas stamps! I have been having so much fun creating cards with them. And I am excited to share this spotlight card with you today. It's Toodle Noodle Ro with you today and this has to be one of my favorite sets for creating holiday cards. There are so many possibilities using the Christmas Whimsy Background Stamp (S814).  Take a look!

These spotlight cards are super easy to create. I decided to incorporate part of the image as part of the sentiment. This is how it all came together...

I stamped the background stamp using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of white CS, then trimmed it down. I lightly traced a circle in pencil where I wanted to the highlighted area to be. Inside the circle, I colored all the images in marker, then added a background with a colored pencil.

The matting panel was cut and punched using a decorative corner punch. I placed the stamped panel into the "frame", then attached that to my A2 card base. 

I added some Nuvo Glimmer Dots around the perimeter of the colored area, then added some computer generated text with some foam adhesive tape. 

There is also a great companion stamp to this set which features the tall snowman in a larger size called Snowman Whimsy (SD880).  As a matter of fact, there are a TON of Christmas stamps available. There are sure to be some that fall in love with, as I have with this set. can even save a little dough by using my very special code when you check out.

Treat yourself to a little fun! Happy Holidays!

Til next time,
Keepin' it inky!
