Manger scene in birch trees

If you don't have a birch tree stamp, no worries. Try making your very own birch trees by watching this video at Splitcoast. So easy, it takes 5 minutes. I promise!! It's one of my fave techniques of all times because it's SO EASY!!! I used some gold stickles glitter for the star.

Birch trees made by a technique
using a credit card, black ink and swiping
the credit card into shapes of trees.

O Holy Night

I used my Tim Holtz Trim a Tree die cut set to make a Christmas tree stencil and I inked it up with Hero Arts white ink, then added the Stampin Up nativity silhouette. The sentiment is by Concord & 9th. Easiest card ever!

Merry Christmas Tino stocking

I love this stocking die set by Concord & 9th. I personalized the stocking with our daughter's dog's name on it ;). I stamped the background stamps in red so it would be tone on tone. Since I used embroidery thread on here and it took me awhile to do, I am only going to personalize 4 this year. I still love how it came out! (Only did them for those with short names)

Too Cute To Spook

I saw this idea on Splitcoast but I honestly cannot remember who posted it. It's just a background of Alcohol inks with some edges of paper added on top and I inked the edges of the papers. It was so easy and quick to come together. I sent this to my godchild and she loved it!!
