Have Yourself

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations. I thought I'd share a Christmas card made with non-Christmas stamps, apart from the sentiment that is, as a way of keeping up my own yearly challenge.
Here it is ....

I used stamps from the Frames And Flowers and Party Mates sets to stamp my tree before adding a sentiment from the Christmas Reindeer set to finish.
So how did I stamp the tree ... I started off with almost fully inking the reverse side of one of the cupcakes (Party Mates) to stamp the pot. I then used generational stamping to stamp the leaves (Frames And Flowers) in a tree shape. Next I used the circular swirl (Party Mates) first on the reverse and the the actual swirl to stamp the baubles, I then added the small flowers, hearts and dots (all from the Frames And Flowers set) before adding some Stickles and Perfect Pearls dots as garland. All the stamping was done using pigment ink.

Here is another look at the finished card ...

That's it from me for today. Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog for more inspiration and to leave a comment for your entry in their prize draw.
I shall be back soon with more makes to share.

Have a lovely week!
