Christmas Cards in October


I've been wanting to try this out for ages, really just to see if it does actually work!!  It's the custom stamp technique using Cut n Dry felt and distress re-inkers a~la T!m style.


Well as you can see, it does work!!


Lots of the same thing, well they are all slightly different, but more or less the same!!


Then I made some more.  A very quick way to make 20+ Christmas cards!!

So over at Out of a Hat Creations Florence has a Christmas theme going on each week throughout October, and this week happens to be cards or tags, so this fits in perfectly.

Hi Sam. Love your Snowmen. I am intrigued. How does it work? Do you ink up the foam and then use it as an ink pad? Very inspiring. xxx

Hi Sam. Fantastic cards. Love the technique you have used. The beauty of these is that you can make them in batches. Also, because of the fabulous stamping and the effect you have created there is no need for lots of embellies so it keeps the costs of postage down. Definately one on my list to do this year. thank you so much for sharing with the Hatters again this week. Have a great weekend
Regards Florence x
PS. Do I spy a sewing machine on the photo? What you been making?
