Happy Friday! Hope you are having a great start to your weekend. Today I’m sharing a few Christmas cards that I made using a variety of stamps from Waffle Flower Crafts. Here is what I came up with:

The idea for this card started with my desire to create a single layer Christmas card–the easiest card to send through the mail to my friends. Then I created a clean and simple Christmas tree card by stamping all the small images from Holiday Labels-Merry Stamp SetA Homemade Christmas Stamp SetSurface-Tag Stamp Set, and Planner Add-on: Weather.

Small images can be great to be used to fill in the shape like a Christmas tree. Depending on the occasion, you can create a heart, star, and etc. The possibilities are endless. So you need to observe what small images you have in your stamp sets.

I started by  drawing a tree using a pencil and ruler before stamping. Then I used my brand new pigment ink pads from Mama Elephant to stamp the images to shape the tree. Do you like the color scheme that I chose? I couldn’t love it enough! 🙂

The small sentiment from A Homemade Christmas Stamp Set fitted perfectly as my Christmas tree stand. By the way, I used Naturals White cardstock from Stamping’ UP for my both cards as card base.

I made another one using a different card base which is a kraft cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I love the rustic feeling from the paper.

DSC_4895-2_wI had so much fun creating these one layer cards using all the tiny stamps that I rarely use. Then I ended up  making a set of Christmas cards. Hope you love my cards and get some inspiration as well.

  1. What a brilliant idea!!! I have used circles but never thought of Christmas trees, the list of shapes is endless. Will have to sort out my small stamps.
    Thank you so much for sharing.
    xx

  2. What fantastic stamping! Love how perfectly it all fits into the tree shape and great mix of colors, I love those kraft ones!

  3. Hi May, I love the way you mixed the colors and they all look very well coordinated. I haven’t got any Waffle Flower but starting to notice they have wonder and versatile designs on their clear stamps. And you have such clever way of using them to create beautiful cards! Love it!

  4. the tree is wonderful. There are so many holiday stamps and you ordinarily only use a few. With the tree you can go crazy using all of the stamps you have.
    thanks for a fun idea.

  5. Awesome cards! Love the color combo and the fun technique for small stamps! I especially love the colors on the kraft paper… looks great!

  6. Oh this is gorgeous I’ve been following you on Instagram for a while now and I have to say I love your cards they are such an inspiration thank you!

  7. I love your work (follow your blog and love your instagram feed too) and these cards are fab. Ive only just started using Waffle Flower dies and stamps and I have to say I love them. Id really love another stamp set to try out, thanks for the chance!

  8. This card is fantastic and what a concept! I need to figure out (or maybe just reread the post) how you got those images inside that tree shape so perfectly! Thanks for the chance to win!
