And this is what I have been making with them. I needed a little bag or something to put some little birthday presents in.So got out a bag and decorated it with one of the new Sweatpea stamps - Pinkie one of the Phunky Pharies.
I then thought a matching card would be a nice idea.
And then with the left over pieces of card I made a spare one

Instead of stamping in black and then colouring her in , I stamped in red and then put a little red stickles on the flowers.Then useing only red and white papers and embelishments on the cards. Just a nice change I think.

For my cards, I've been experimenting with several softer colour options than those on the sample sheet above, while keeping the red checked backing paper the same throughout.
Here's a soft blue and grey version [all coloured with ProMarkers]: Complete with twinkling Stickles accents and ruddy cheeks:
Another blue version, this time with extra red details:
And finally, a splash of pink and purple:
Again, the outfit wouldn't be complete without some Stickled trimming!
I've got a fourth colour option in this post over on my blog - Notes on Paper - today, where it's illustrating something Christmassy I overheard [you know how I like to keep my ears open!].
The full details of the Christmas elf sheet can be found here, and maybe I'll see you on my blog later too?

2. Have you seen the latest products Jean's listed in the shop? There's:
- the December 'Alter That' kit;
- lots of new paper pads including ones from My Mind's Eye and Melissa Frances;
- and a half-price offer on some Tattered Angels Glimmer chips too.
You can check out everything in the super-useful 'New Products' page on the site, but here's a few of my favourites ...
This very smart Lost Coast Design lady caught my eye: The 'Mini Text Diva with Face' possibly a bit of a favourite as her legs are just like mine today as I've got my stripy leggings on! Plus, you've got to love a stripy-legged stamp haven't you?
Then there's a re-stock of this Stained Glass Flower border stamp:
At only £2.00 the border stamps always sell well, so grab yours while you can!
3. There's also some new Sweet Pea stamps available, including this adorable Christmas Elf sheet:
Then there's some 'Phunky Phairies' - one of which I've just used on a feature published in Papercraft Inspirations Magazine next year. I can't show you the full thing, but here's a sneaky peek of how I used the 'Jinx' design: 4. And speaking of Sweet Pea Stamps ... did you know that they have a blog which includes a customer gallery?
I've just discovered it and thought that some of you might like to see the work you've bought from Jean featured on the manufacturers blog, well, everyone likes a little bit of recognition don't they?
You can see the full range of Sweet Pea stamps stocked by Jean here, and below is just some of the uses the Scattered Scarlet design team have made with them over the last few months:Finally ... I also discovered that Sweet Pea have a challenge blog called 'In A Sweet Pea Dream' which seems to offer prizes to the challenge winners! So, get putting those Sweet Pea stamps to good use and make sure to let us know if .. or rather when ... you win!
I'll be back on Tuesday with the cards I've made using the Christmas Elf, but until then, keep those crafty fingers moving so the icicles can't form on them!
