Hello and welcome back to our blog! I’m so excited to begin a new video series over the next couple of weeks. This series is going to feature mainly cards and tags but there will be a few other non card projects sprinkled in to give you some inspiration on how to create quick DIY projects for gifts or crafts to create with your friends and family.

This is our biggest promotion of the year! Happy shopping, everyone! Now let’s move on to our video series!

We have two videos to showcase how to stretch your non holiday stamps to use on your christmas cards/projects. Let’s start with our first card!

It was only after I edited the photo that I realized the Y got a bit wonky. I am away for a couple of days right now so I’m unable to fix this right now!

For my first card, I used our non holiday themed Layered Floral Alphas stamp bundle. This is a floral alphabet stamp set that is not Christmas themed. How did I use this on a holiday card and make it work? Use a christmas color palette! I used our deep red and green ink pads (Everglade Moss + Valentine Red Dye inks) to turn these letters into holiday alphas!

For my next card, I stretched our non holiday layering Beer stamp to create a christmas card! The trick to this was to use small holiday elements and images to create the christmas-y feel of this card.

    Love both cards equally. I hadn’t noticed the wonky Y till I looked again. It made me laugh, as if the Y was a bit merry from the drink lol. (A regular occurrence in our house at Christmas 🀣)
    Looking forward to the rest of the 12 days of Christmas.
