Craft Stamper Reminder - Use a Non-Christmassy Stamp For Christmas

Are you playing along with the Craft Stamper Take It, Make It challenge?  We want you to use non-Christmas stamps to create a Christmas image.

I used four of the border stamps from Neat & Tangled On The Strip.  I inked them with Distress Inks, spritzed them and stamped them onto white card, then cut them up to fit.  I doodled the white border around the edge of the card - which is chocolate brown although it looks more like black in the photo - and hand-wrote the sentiment.

Why not play along?  Use your circle stamps, star stamps, border stamps.  Make snowmen, trees, wreaths.  Make Christmas shapes from non-Christmas background stamps - the possibilities are endless.  Think beyond cards - make 3D items for the tree or mantlepiece.  As long as you've used stamps, you're in!

If yours is the winning entry, you get to be published in the mag (hold on to your entry!), a guest design spot in a future challenge, and this wonderful prize - you could make some great Christmas trees with this set!

The Artistic Stamper is a shop full to bursting with fabulous stamps, stash and ideas galore!
The prize this month is this set of stamps..
