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.

Thanks for stopping by!


  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.

  2. Cute card, love the set of stamps too.
