Note Pad Holder

There is a group of stamping friends that get together to celebrate birthdays, which entails going to dinner and stamping. It's a blast! This weekend we got together for just a movie and dinner. We have so much fun. Someone started a new tradition. One of the group will spring a new individual stamp and a piece of designer paper on everyone. We all get the same stamp and the same paper. Our challenge is to create 7 cards, one for ourselves and one for each lady of the group. This time it was a Christmas theme. We received this gingerbread man and the Basic Grey Gingerbread/Orange Peel DP from the Fruitcake Collection. Instead of a card I decided to use some notepads that have been sitting here begging to be used. I made this notepad holder for notes for Christmas. I used Basic Grey Magnets to hold it closed. The CS is Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel, and Wild Wasabi. I stamped the image on Watercolor Paper with Black StazOn. I colored the image using Prismacolor Pencils, blending with baby oil. I used black Stickles on the buttons and eyes. I used Crystal Effects for the red trim. I tinted it with red reinker. Don't do that : ( . It isn't shiny at all. I put plain Crystal Effects over the unshiny red. That fixed it. The greeting came with the gingerbread man.

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
