Merry Christmas From Stamp Simply

Are you ready for Christmas?  Well, ready or not; it's less than a month away.  While most of  my Christmas cards are already in the mail, it's always good to create a few extras for "just in case".  You know...when someone sends you a card or gives you a gift that you weren't quite expecting.  It's good to be prepared.  If you don't end up using the extra cards, you'll have a head start on next year.  With Stamp Simply Clear Stamps, you have so many beautiful options for the perfect sentiments, images and more.
The O Christmas Tree Stamp Set is one of my favorite Christmas sets.  It's got three different Christmas trees and several gorgeous sentiments that can be used all year long.  This is just one of the darling trees in this sweet set.  I stamped, colored, and then cut it twice using the coordinating O Christmas Tree Dies.  I used two different patterned papers from the Craft Consortium's Beautiful Blooms 6x6 Paper Pad.  Non-traditional Christmas colors are fun.
Some machine stitching and some Solid Black Baker's Twine were the finishing touches.  The background was created using a piece of basic white cardstock rubbed with various colors of Tim Holtz Oxide Inks.  I love all the different layers of paper, and keeping the pretty Christmas trees the focal point of my card was easy to achieve in doing so.
There's so much amazing inspiration on the Stamp Simply Blog and lots of great shopping at Stamp Simply.  You're always sure to find the perfect scriptures, sentiments, images in their high-quality stamps and dies.  Thanks so much for stopping by today and please visit us again soon.

I'm entering the following:

Double D Challenge Blog - Dots and/or Stripes - I guess this card combines both elements. I have dots in the trees as ornaments and stripes in the trees as the garland on my fun garland.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Make it Sparke - so I added Stickles to the stars.
