Waltzingmouse Stamps November 2011 SOAP–Day 2

If this is your first experience with the Waltzingmouse Stamps SOAP (Stamp of Approval Parade), then you are in for a treat.  Several times a year the Waltzingmouse Stamps Design Team revisit some of our favorite stamp sets.  For the November SOAP we are revisiting our favorite Christmas images…new and old.  I hope you will enjoy the holiday inspiration.

Oh-Christmas-Tree-SOAP-1120

My project today begins with a kraft card base and another layer of kraft trimmed a bit smaller than the base.  I then stamped several of the Big Blooms Chrysanthemums images using Vintage Cream Pigment Ink to create a background pattern.

My Christmas Tree was self-made by stamping a pattern image from the Half Baked Gingerbread Joy set onto ivory cardstock using an Olive ink from Vivid.  Then I first cut a triangular shape for my tree base from the stamped paper.  I cut another triangle the same size as the first and divided the cuts, using a pair of pinking scissors.  I layered the pieces onto the base using foam dimensional dots.  With the addition of some gold cording and some metallic baubles I decorated my tree, trimming it off with some gold glitter by Stampendous.

I stamped a sentiment on a tag and attached it to my green silk ribbon using a mini clothes pin that I painted with gold and embellished with some stickles. Yea!  Another Christmas card for my stash. 

Won’t you join me and take a look at the wonderful projects that the rest of the design team have to share.  They always amaze me with their creative imagination with different ways to use WMS images.

I appreciate  your stopping by.  I hope you will return tomorrow for more holiday inspiration.

Lynn I love that poinsettia background - I keep looking at it and thinking how clever you are! You have all the detail of the flower and the cream really pops on the kraft. It looks store bought. I love the green of the ribbon with the green on the tree and that tag is perfect!

This is just beautiful, the tree and the pop of red against the kraft card are marvellous, and I love how you stamped the poinsettias in white, a really wonderful design!

Your Christmas tree is so awesome, Lynn! I love how you created the layers from paper you stamped, and the gold pearls are the perfect embellishment. I also think the look of the cream poinsettias on kraft is particularly stunning!
