I needed to come up with a card for the Whimsy Stamps Design Team Application, and with Christmas approaching (and way too quickly for my liking) I figured a Christmas card could be called for. Here is what I came up with.
|Whimsy Stamps Design Team Application Card. I have put both the inside and front of the card here for easier viewing. The inside of the card is on the left and the front of the card is on the right.|

For the inside of the card I have used the same techniques but with a Kaiser Craft stamp of the Christmas tree. This was coloured using the Faber Castell watercolour pencils again in numbers 467, 463, 457 and 421. I have once again sprayed with glimmer mist and added some stick on crystals (Kaiser Craft) for the baubles. The gold sparkly star is with Stickles in yellow. The blue background was achieved using the watercolours in numbers 447 and 445.

I have also used another Kaiser Craft Stamp (from their sentiments ranges) and coloured this with the red and green watercolour pencils, to give it a Christmassy effect.
Being someone that enjoys more than just 1 style of crafting, I find that there are many places in which to use stamps. You do not need to confine yourself to just cards. Think scrapbooking, mixed media (such as with my last post of Holly's Silhouette), parchment craft, quilling as well as other paper crafts. You can also use them to stamp on materials, woods, glass and so many other mediums. If selected for the Whimsy Stamps design team, I will hopefully be able to display some of these techniques for you, so that you too can attempt these and have some of the fun that I have when doing these.
Stay tuned for more of my Christmas crafts as the 'Big Day' draws nearer, and I hope to see you all soon.
