Stamp Something For Christmas!

This is a card I made for this weeks Stamp Something Challenge. The rules are to make a card using only one layer of cardstock. You can embellish it, stamp it, color it, do anything you wish, but you must only use one layer! So here is my entry!


I used my new Woodware bubble tree stamp and stamped it directly onto the base CS. I coloured some of it in with blue ink before adding buttons, adhesive gems and pearls and glitter glue to embellish. I attempted to distress the edges of the CS with blue ink to give a border, but not entirely sure it works! Sentiment is one of my new stamps I got from stamp magic a few weeks ago. Snowtex and glamour dust added to the CS to finish!

Another realtively quick and simple card for my christmas box. Don't think I've got that many more to make now. Probably another 10-15, mainly personalised cards for my family! Hope you're all managing to crack on with your christmas cards, only 42 days left to make them ( and that's including christmas eve so you'd have to hand deliver them)!

Not been feeling so good today so have spent most of the day in my pyjama's keeping nice and warm! Hope I'm not coming down with something. I've got a few day's off work coming up and it'll just be my luck to be poorly!

On a brighter note my new personalised stamp I ordered from E-Bay came today, so I can start using it to personalise the backs of my cards. I will show you it as soon as I make a card using it!

Hugs, Vicky x

This is stunning Vicky. I have seem this stamp before and I just love the simplicity of it. Sounds like you are pretty organised with your cards. I actually go on holiday on 13th December (to Dubai with my sister) so I need to get all mine done prior to that, plus looks like I may have another commission on offer!!
