Christmas card with non-Christmas stamp


Craft Stamper Magazine challenges us to use a non Christmas stamp to create a Christmas themed image.

I used my Hero Arts Plano stamp to create this card. I stamped it onto water color paper and heat embossed it. then sprinkled it with Brushos and cut out the trees. 


I slightly sponged around the trees.

I stamped the sentiment onto vellum (Hero Arts Decorate your Holidays) and also heat embossed it, plus a little sponging..... Added the sequins, which I made with my MFT dies.
I love using non Christmas stamps for Christmas cards - Thanks for the challenge!



I am also playing with CASology and in the Snippets Playground - my snippets are the sequins and the vellum strip

          

Also linking it up with Less is More ( as Sarah suggested) - the theme is "More than one Tree" and Moxie FabTree-mendous Trees 


--- X ---

I also want to thank everyone who emailed me, wrote me and left comments on my blog about my father's passing away. I appreciated you thinking about me and my family and send me your condolences. It warmed my heart. 


Thank you so much - I am always amazed what a wonderful community I found in blog land. It almost like family! Above the cards I got from Nonni, Vicki, Sandie and Doerthe  - thanks my friends!

I love this! I had assumed mod trees but even cooler that it's not a tree stamp at all!

Julie B said...

Das ist doch selbstverständlich, das man an Freunde denkt in solch schweren Zeiten und versucht zu helfen/trösten/Mitgefühl zeigt wo es geht.
Deine Weihnachtskarte ist sehr schön geworden. Wunderbare Farben hast du gewählt, nicht gerade typisch weihnachtlich, aber festlich.
Danke dafür, du Zauberin.
Liebe Grüße,
Flo

Meine Karte ist in der Post. Bin erst am Wochenende dazu gekommen, sie zu machen! Bist du denn schon wieder zurück!
