So my friend Kathy decided she wanted to learn to stamp and I was more than happy to share my time and passion for this hobby with her! She’s been coming over on Sundays and we’ve been making Christmas cards. I’m teaching her the basics, easy sketches, easy card folds. I can’t wait to get her fingers super inky with some techniques in the future!!!
For now though we’ve been doing some clean and simple cards and I wanted to share a few that I made during our recent creative afternoon. The goal was to show her how the same sketch could be used in different ways.
I’m also sharing these Christmas cards with Christmas Cards All Year Round for their December challenge. The challenge is Anything Goes as long as their made this month and they are!
A simple layout using patterned paper and ribbon. The paper is from a paper stack they were scraps I had, I love the country feel! The sentiment is from CTMH and the reindeer I love but don’t know where I got the stamp from.
Same sketch but the patterned paper becomes an embossed piece and the ribbon strip becomes a shiny piece of paper. Cuttlebug folder and the tree is an old TAC stamp.
We’re having fun! I’m looking forward to our next Sunday together!!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday!
