With Christmas just around the corner, it’s crunch time! To get my Christmas cards made, I’ve been busy playing with a new Hostess set from SU! called “Warmth and Wonder”. Just love this sweet set.
I decided to start with the darling tree image in the set and play along in this week’s challenge over at Less Is More.
Each card has a different patterned paper on it. It was SO FUN going through several pads to find the papers that would work. Apparently I found several that did! LOL
Without any embellishments, the cards are super mailable.
By using a marker and coloring directly onto the stamp, the lights on the trees can be multicolored.
When coloring a stamp with markers, it can be difficult to differentiate what color is where. On this particular image, I found it easiest to use just one color at a time.
After using part of the image and doing all of the trees with one color, I cleaned the stamp and colored the other parts with the second color and stamped the remaining lights.
****** BLOG CANDY ******
Finally today I have a brand new Christmas sentiment stamp to give away in a little blog candy drawing.
It is from Stampabilities and is identical to the one used on several of today’s tree cards.
Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Crafting!
