Not A Christmas Stamp…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our November Challenge!!

This month’s theme is Christmas Images using Non Christmas Stamps!!  This was a really fun technique.  I had to really shop my stash to see what stamps I have that I could use for this.

This is my first time attempting this technique and I really enjoyed it.  What was even cooler, I’m currently taking the new Holiday Card Workshop Online Card Class and Jennifer McGuire showed us how to create a card using different stamps that really wasn’t their intended purpose.

Take a look at my card:

BelieveFor this technique, you use a stamp that is NOT a Christmas image and use it to make an image that IS Christmas themed.

Here is how I created my card:

1. I used Simon Says Stamp Love This circle stamp to create my card.

2. I randomly stamped the solid circle using Stampin’ Up! Cherry Cobbler  and retired Gumball Green Ink.

3. For the empty space, I used Papertrey Ink’s Building Blocks star and heart to fill the space in, using the same ink colors.

4. I stamped the star from Simon Says Stamp Lunch Box Notes with Versamark Ink and embossed it using Ranger Silver embossing powder.

5. I drew the stump free hand and used my Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso Marker.

6. I stamped the sentiment using Stampin’ Up! Good Greetings Stamp set that was given to me as a gift.

7.  I added some sequin from my Simon Says Stamp November Kit.

That’s all it took.  I love how it came out.
