We only have a few days until Christmas - I don't know about you, but I'm excited! Not even the cold I've caught which caused me to spend the day on the couch yesterday is dampening my excitement! This time of year there are so many cute Christmas products that we can invest in... however, for today's post I wanted to show how something that was not designed as a Christmas stamp set can be reimagined in the most delightful way to fit into holiday crafting. This is especially awesome if, like me, you are trying to pull together something from your stash to make a last minute holiday card/project.
To get started I used the G'day Mate United we Flourish Ellen Hutson & Avery Elle collaboration stamp set. It's a super cute stamp set with my absolute favorite stamp in the set being this Momma Kangaroo and her Joey. Here's how it looked the first time I crafted with this set - not a spec of holiday to be seen! (Supply list for the yellow card can be found here.)
But when designing my project this time, I did three things to up the holiday mood:
2) I reinforced the holiday theme by surrounding her with traditional Christmas colors. For the main background I used the My Favorite Things Kraft Collection Solid Stripes 6x6 paper pad, and for the pops of color I used the following cardstock colors: Neenah Solar White, Bazzill Chocolate Malt, Bazzill Peppermint
The tag itself was made using the Essentials by Ellen Concertina Tag Die set.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed this little peek at one of my Christmas Crafting projects.
