Hi Stampers,

Today I have a twist on the November Paper Pumpkin to share.  I have stamped on fabric before and used acrylic paint to give an image a permanent fix.  I knew I would not ne laundering this little stocking from the November kit so I could just use ink.  I chose the reindeer from the Merry Mistletoe stamp set with Soft Suede ink to stamp on the stocking.  Before stamping I inserted a piece of cardboard into the stocking so I would have a solid base to stamp on.  I stamped two of the branches from the Nature Sings stamp set with Garden Green ink beneath the reindeer.  Because I like distressed and vintage looks I scruffed up the stocking with more of the Soft Suede ink.  I didn’t have any candy canes handy so I made a little arrangement in the stocking, but you get the idea.  There are so many images that would look great on the stocking.  I’m thinking of doing one with the deer label from the Merry Little Labels stamp set.  It’s always fun to see what other ideas you can come up with for the Paper Pumpkin kits.  They are a great investment for the beginning stamper but can also challenge a seasoned stamper to step it up a notch.  It’s also a great idea for a busy mom or career woman or guy for that matter.  Everything you need is in that kit.  Check it out.

PAWS TO PONDER

Hugs and happy stamping,  MB
