A Carabelle Studio Christmas

Welcome to the Topflight Stamp Blog!

It's Clare with you today and this week at Topflight Stamps we are creating Christmas in July!  Now I probably only make a handful of Christmas projects each year as working in a school, it is one of the most busiest times of the year.  What with carol services,  nativities and fitting in the Christmas shopping, it doesn't always leave me with an abundance of time for creating.

Now a sensible crafter would be making their Christmas cards throughout the year!  Maybe I should take stock and start creating a few so that I'm organized! 


I started off by stamping the snowman from Carabelle Studio A6 - Snowman.  
Snowman

I Stamped the snowman again onto a post it note and cut it out to mask off Frosty.  Using some Hickory Smoke distress ink, I worked the ink around the card.  I stamped the snowflakes around him too.  Using the same colour distress ink and a water brush I added some colour to our frosty friend to give him some dimension.


I'm feeling rather pleased that it's only July and  I'm already ahead of the game for Christmas!

Pop back tomorrow for some more Christmas themed inspiration.

Crafty Hugs,
