magic of Christmas

Welcome to day 2 of the Sweet ‘n Sassy September feature Blog Hops!

Today we’re featuring Korin’s sweet new Magic of Christmas stamp set.  The tree in this set is not only cute…it makes a very quick & easy image for your cards!

I used an old technique called Poppin’ Pastels to stamp and color the tree.  I stamped it onto patterned paper, applied the chalks, and then the sentiment was stamped overtop.  Here’s a closer view.

And here’s the full set…

Check out more samples made by our DT on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog.
