When Is A Christmas Stamp not A Christmas Stamp?

When you use it to make an encouragement card!!!

Yes my annual motto has resurfaced a "A Christmas Stamp is for Life not just for Christmas"

And to prove my point two of the stamps on this card are from the Penny Black Christmas release.

The Best

Supplies used:- Penny Blacks Edge to Edge 30-164 transparent stamp, Christmas Reds and Greens 4347K and Blushing Berries 4355F Wood Stamps, Storm 01-001 Mix and Match Card stock, Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Kaleidacolor Spectrum Ink, Wedding Dress, Morocco, Pear Tart and Rose Bud Memento Luxe Inks, Ink Potion No.9, White embossing powder, Spellbinders Grand Squares LF-126 and Wood Veneer.

* Ink up brayer using Kaleidacolor ink  and spritz with Ink Potion No.9, brayer onto wood veneer and then heat set. Stamp sentiment with Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink and heat emboss. Cut out to form tag shape.

Technique flower 2

* Create card blank by folding cardstock in half and cut and emboss using Spellbinders grand squares (make sure the fold on the card is inside the cut line).

* Stamp leaves using Memento Luxe colours, then add tag over the top to finish card.

I will be back on Monday with another veneer creation, until then have a great weekend, what ever you have planned.
