Holiday Hop


Hello Rubbernecker Sisters!! HOP day has arrived!! The Stampin’ Sisterhood has LOTS to share today!! Thank you for joining us! We all thought it would be a great idea to share some of our holiday images. So, sit back and enjoy. If you leave some LOVE at EVERY stop along the way, you will be entered into a random drawing for your choice of one Rubbernecker Stamps stamp SET!! Yes, you read that right:   a SET, not a single image!! Now, how AWESOME is that?! Mr. Rubbernecker wants YOU to be able to choose, so you will LOVE what you get!! 


I chose to use this framed holly image for my holiday design.  I first watercolored the holly with Garden Green and then went over that with Oregano Twinkling H20.  I colored the berries with Red Jasper Twinkling H20 and then went over those with deep red stickles for some sparkle.  I used Garden Green to sponge the outer edges of my frame.  I really try to keep my holiday cards to a minimum in terms of layering and bulky embellishments to help keep down the mailing costs.

Here's a complete list of the supplies I used:
Stamps:  Holly Frame (SKU #1596SO)
Paper:  Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Christmas dp
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin' Up Garden Green, Twinkling H20s in Oregano and Jasper Red
Accessories:  red brads, embossing folder, sponge dauber, red velvet ric rac, dimensionals
OK, we know that you are busy, so you will have until THURSDAY 11/17 to HOP!  Our WINNER will be announced on the RUBBERNECKER BLOG, on FRIDAY 11/18!!  Good luck!

But wait, I have some other exciting news to share, too!!  Beginning Sunday, November 20, we will be having weekly Rubbernecker challenges called SISTERHOOD  SUNDAYS!  We hope you'll join us as we are going to have a blast!  Who knows?  You could win a prize on SUNDAYS too!!! 

Here's the blog list of all the Rubbernecker Stampin' Sisters for ease of your hopping! 


Happy hopping!
