Scribbly Christmas Trees

I was the winner of a Simon Says Stamp Challenge a few weeks ago...which meant I was the lucky recipient of a shopping spree at their fabulous store! I decided to limit myself to items either exclusive to Simon Says Stamp or not available/easy to get hold of over here. One of the items I picked was a new Tim Holtz set of Christmas stamps for Stampers Anonymous called 'Scribbly Christmas'...I'm a sucker for Christmas trees! I haven't had a lot of crafting time since I received them, but found a little time to play yesterday and made a quick set of teeny tiny cards. I used A7 kraft card blanks (from Hobbycraft), stamping the trees and matching sentiments directly on to them...adding a little colour using some watercolour pencils.

Challenges for these cards:


  1. Fabulous stamps and great cards. I also love Christmas trees for my Christmas cards.
