A friend of mine was telling me that she thought she was going to have to order the Stampin Up stamp set Snow Swirled. This is the stamp set she's talking about
The thing is she has another stamp set that is similar so she really didn't want to buy another one that was almost like the one she had, but she really liked that other tree. I told her to improvise with the stamps she had. She told me to do it. So I did!
The first thing I did was create a template.
Then I positioned the template over the cardstock I wanted the tree to be on, and I gathered some of my flourish stamps to use. These are from Autumn Leaves.
Then I stamped in two different colors of green in a random pattern all over. Then I picked a little flower burst stamp to use, but small snowflakes would work well too.
Take off the template and reveal your own one-of-a-kind snow swirled tree!
And here's the cards I made. My kitty was keeping company while I made these. :)
I thought the first tree was a little big, so I made another template that would allow me to use a regular A2 size card and still have room for embellishments to show. The measurements for this one are 3" across the bottom and 4 1/8" for the sides.
I added some little rhinestones in the center of some of the flowerbursts. I ended up liking this card so much that I joined a Christmas card swap on one of my rubberstamping lists and made five of them!
So, what do you think? Did I convince her to improvise? Did I convince you? Thanks for looking!
