Christmas in August


I bought this stamp "Christmas Tree" by Memory Box last year and decided to ink it up today and make a dozen Christmas cards. (I was also motivated by Darnell's NBUS challenge).  I made some the same and varied some of them.  The saying is by Stamp A Mania.  It feels good to get a little jump on Christmas card, I don't usually start early like this except for a few I make for challenges.  I also made a dozen of another design yesterday and will post those soon.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend that included a bit of stamping time!


A few fun challenges:
 
Thanks for stopping by.

This tree stamp seems like a perfect stamp for mass production, no coloring needed. But there's plenty of room for varying designs by choosing different colors, background and sentiments. Quick, easy and really beautiful!

Ooooh, Donna, that really is a stunning design with the diecut tree in front of the text and the sediment die cut banner! I'm so stealing that idea! Congratulations on getting such a big jump on your Ccards. I had such good intentions this year, but life had other plans! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell
