With Christmas just around the corner, it’s crunch time!  To get my Christmas cards made, I’ve been busy playing with a new Hostess set from SU! called “Warmth and Wonder”.  Just love this sweet set.

I decided to start with the darling tree image in the set and play along in this week’s challenge over at Less Is More.

Each card has a different patterned paper on it.  It was SO FUN going through several pads to find the papers that would work.  Apparently I found several that did!  LOL
Without any embellishments, the cards are super mailable.

By using a marker and coloring directly onto the stamp, the lights on the trees can be multicolored.

When coloring a stamp with markers, it can be difficult to differentiate what color is where.  On this particular image, I found it easiest to use  just one color at a time.

After using part of the image and doing all of the trees with one color, I cleaned the stamp and colored the other parts with the second color and stamped the remaining lights.


******  BLOG CANDY ******

Finally today I have a brand new Christmas sentiment stamp to give away in a little blog candy drawing.

It is from Stampabilities and is identical to the one used on several of today’s tree cards.
