Craft Stamper Take It Make It - Use a Non-Christmas Stamp for Christmas


We've got a great challenge for you this month at Craft Stamper Take It Make It!  We want you to use a non-Christmas stamp to create a Christmas image.


I've made a Christmas tree from a sketched heart stamp.  Starting at the top of the tree, I stamped the heart upside down.  That's the heart upside down, not me.  Then two hearts on the next row, then three, etc. etc.  Then I sloshed some Distress Inks over it, and sloshed some blue for the sky, flicked some water for snow, and added some Frantage Shabby White embossing enamel across the base of the panel.

This month's sponsor is The Artistic Stamper, and you could win this fab stamp set:



Not only that, if you win you also get your winning entry published in the magazine (so hold on to it!) and a guest design spot in a future challenge.

So get thinking outside the box and come and join us - there's some fabulous inspiration over on the blog to kick-start your imagination!
