Christmas in June


It is 91 degrees here this afternoon so it is very hard to think about Christmas time.  The other day though I did just that as I shopped my stamp collection for a stamp that hasn't gotten as much use as I'd like.  The For the Birds set from Stampin' Up! is very cute but not that versatile in my opinion.  I had never used the Merry Christmas one.

This little bird needed a showy backdrop to rest on.


For the background, I used a stencil and metallic craft paint for a tone-on-tone affect.  So now I have 2 Christmas cards done!

Here's the process video at YouTube:


Just a reminder.  The last day for the current price on the Creative Cardstock class is Friday, June 27.  You can sign up for Monday's free Sketches Scrapinar for a few more days.

  1. Love the background! Never would have thought to use flowers as snowflakes. It worked well. Great idea on how to use those smaller stamps as a focal image.
