Merry Making – Day 3 Non-festive stamps

Hello there!

Day 3 of Online Card Classes’ Merry Making class was all about using non-festive stamps. This day was quite challenging for me because I have SO MANY festive stamps- I’m usually trying to think of ways to use them in non-Christmas cards! But I have accepted the challenge!

Kristina Werner demonstrated an abstract background using an abstract triangles stamp and Christmas colours. I don’t have any abstract stamps that lend themselves well to this technique so I pulled out one of my new Simon Says Stamp background stamps and coloured it with my Nuvo Markers. It took AGES! I couldn’t bring myself to splatter gold paint on it after all that painstaking colouring so I moved onto the next part of the card – using sections of the stamp to create an embellishment. My first thought was to use the larger leaves to create a tree, but that didn’t really work well so I used them to create a poinsettia.

Thanks for stopping by!
