Christmas SAS 1 - Jolly Bingo Bits

Here I am again with the second card from my September Christmas stamp-a-stack class. For this card, I used some of the cute images from the Jolly Bingo Bits set and the gorgeous new lace ribbon punch in choc chip, real red & lucky limeade (new in-colour for this year - a really lovely brighter olive) & white.
Here's a closer look at the stamped & pierced panel:
I got the clear mount version of Jolly Bingo Bits, so I could quickly stamp multiple images in a line or in this case, a square on the clear blocks.
For this card, I placed the 4 stamps in a square pattern on a clear block (D), which enabled me to ink up 3 of the images with my full size ink pads & one with 2 markers (bauble), & stamp them all at once onto the square white card. Then I just added extra details with markers. The colours/extras used on each image are:
1. Santa - real red ink pad, then markered over eyes with black marker.
2. Rudolph - soft suede ink pad, real red marker for nose, early espresso marker for antlers
3. Gingerbread - soft suede ink pad (this sample was choc chip but I liked the soft suede more & used it at the class), black marker for eyets, real red for mouth & old olive/real red for buttons
4. Bauble - old olive & real red marker. Tag stamped in real red with real red punched jewellery tag & silver mini brad to attach. the tag end has a half a dimensional underneath to pop to tag off the page a bit.
After I finished the images, I used the piercing template from the mat pack to pierce the border. This looks as if it takes a while, but it's quick with the template.

If you want to make card this even a little quicker with less positioning, you could stamp & punch out the images with our brand new 1 inch square punch which fits beautifully in between the pierced squares. I made a version this way, but don't seem to have a pic, so you'll have to try it for yourself.
Oh & in case you're wondering how I attached the punched lace ribbonBy the way, I used 2 way glue pen at either end of the piece & a little on the middle.

So that's it for my September Christmas SAS. Hope you liked the cards. Check out October next time!
Inky wishes, Di
