Use them or lose them #15: Festival of Trees

So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!

This week I grabbed Festival of Trees and decided to have a little bit of a Christmas craft!  I’ve not done as many christmas cards throughout the year like I normally do, mainly as I don’t need as many this year as I made so many last year… but still it was fun to be festive for thirty minutes.

I chose three patterned card blanks that my friend gifted me and three grey hammered card panels from the stash.  I kept the design simple on all three cards with the tree stamped in smoky slate and then added colour for the baubles, pot and sentiment.  I used BlackBerry Bliss, Lost Lagoon and Raspberry Ripple as the three colour choices.

I can’t see me getting rid of these stamps… I love them… and glad I did some nice clean and simple designs but will be interesting to try and mix it up a little for the next project… wonder what I will end up doing.

Happy crafting!

Catherine
