holiday stamp set by jasmine jones

These days I'm focusing on using supplies I've accumulated over the last few years, but there are some new Christmas stamp sets that caught my eye, especially the Holiday stamp set by Jasmine Jones at Studio Calico. I love the fun shape of the tree, and the way the beautifully scripted words go together to form the shape of a tree is so clever! I was very inspired by this set so I've got quite a few cards to share over the next couple weeks.

Here are some of the cards I made that feature the tree stamp. For the first one I used watercolor paper. I first stamped the tree and then filled in with a green copic marker since the paper is textured and the stamped image wasn't smooth. I watercolored in blue around the tree and then embossed the sentiment in gold and added the snow stamp all around the tree embossed in white. 

The background paper on this card is from this 6x6 grid pattern paper pad. The tag was cut with the largest tag from this tag die set. I used Lawn Fawn green ink for the tree. I love the Lawn Fawn inks because they are the smoothest dye inks I've tried.

For this card I again stamped the tree in Lawn Fawn ink, then cut around it. I added decorations from the stamp set in Color Theory Clean Slate ink and dots with a white gel pen. The blue background was scribbled with a Prismacolor pencil and the star is wood veneer from Studio Calico.

I'll share cards that feature the scripted words from the Holiday stamp set soon. It's such a fun set and there's much more to come!


  1. Beautiful cards Deb! I will have to try the Lawn Fawn Ink--I'm not the best stamper, but the ink I use doesn't seem to be smooth at all no matter how careful I am inking my stamps.

  2. Beautiful. Love your coloring. Michelle t
