Christmas Thanks

Every year, I try to make enough Christmas-themed thank-you cards for our needs. It's easier to find a simple design and make a few rather than to make each one unique, and today's design is perfect for this.

These three sizes of stylized poinsettias come in the Ornamental Style set from Clearly Besotted. They're designed to fit inside the three ornament stamps in the set, but these little stamps are actually incredibly versatile. Lining them up is simple and clean, and points attention directly at the small sentiment (from a Clearly Besotted sentiment set).

As you're stamping this weekend, look at the small accessory stamps in different sets and challenge yourself to use them in a different way than intended. It's fun!

stamps: Clearly Besotted
ink: Memento Luxe love letter, Impress Fresh Ink mojito
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: rhinestones


  1. I did that this week for the first time ever!!! I was so excited! I was at my Mom's with very limited stamps, and we thought a few little butterflies would look lovely in a little picture she was creating. I didn't have any, but I had some little 2 leaf clusters, so used them as butterfly silhouettes, and drew on tiny body and feelers! Such a little thing, but I was so proud of myself!!

    1. How fun to think outside the box! It's the most satisfying part of creativity, don't you think?

  2. Very crisp! I love your simplicity and have admired it for some time. I have definitely gone to more simple styles lately but not quite to your level.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
