Darcy over at Art and Sole is running a challenge this week. She has designed some fabulous stamps for Paperartsy and has been making Christmas cards. Her challenge was to take one stamp and make several different cards with it. I only caught up with the challenge late last night and with limited time today have only had time to make three ...

I have used the Christmas trees from Egg & Nog 1 as my main stamp(s) and added word stamps from the same set, from Egg & Nog 2 and from Egg & Nog 4

Card 1 is clean and simple style ... I've cut the trees apart and just stamped 2 of them so they would fit nicely inside the frame which I have embossed with a die. The 'snow' is Paperartsy Fresco Finish paint in Snowcap ... I just masked the space off with post-its and sponged it on ... silver star brads top the trees to finish it off...

Card 2 is made using a pattern ... I think its from Mojo Monday ... this time the trees are embossed onto different papers, cut out and added to the top mat ... the middle tree is coloured with Stickles in candy Cane and Patina and the tiny tree next to the 'Goodwill' is also glittered ... a gold start brad has been added to the centre tree ... the red backing paper is patterned with tiny handwriting text but it doesn't show up in my photogrph ...

Card 3 is my favourite and is made in a similar way to the one above but I have used painted papers that I have made as the background and for the trees too, maybe I should have reversed the colourway though :-))

The reason I have no more time is because we're off to see Gravity 3D in and hour or so - I am a bit scared ... hope I don't get 'seasick'
