Christmas in Bloom

I love a good Christmas stamp set (of which we have many in the Autumn / Winter catalogue this year) but I always enjoy finding an alternative use for a non-Christmas themed set. A few weeks ago Garden in Bloom found its way into my craft room, and I don’t know whether it was just my excitement about Christmas but I saw Poinsettias amongst the flowers – maybe I’m just crackers!

Those flowers are stamped in Real Red, with the outline in Memento Black. I fussy cut the 3 flowers (or Poinsettias) it didn’t take all that long actually, they are quite simple shapes, plus the Stampin’ Up!® paper snips make fussy cutting super easy with their sharp to the tip blades and easy hold handles.

The strip of Designer Series Paper is taken from Season of Cheer, and the edge finished with a 0.5 cm strip of Gold Foil Paper.

Now, the only problem with using a non-Christmas themed stamp set for Christmas cards is the lack of a good sentiment. So I reached into my stash of Christmas stamp sets and chose this sentiment from Festive Fireplace.

Do you like finding alternative uses for Stamps in your collection too?
