Happy Monday! Lisa here, from Crafting with Princess Lisa, sharing two non-Christmas cards using the Festive Greetings stamp set. I like to ‘stretch’ my stamps (not literally!) to get more use of holiday sets. I hope you like my ideas.
Today I am focusing on the light bulb and light strand images from the Festive Greetings stamp set.
Here is my first card:
The candles were created using two images from the Pretty Planners stamp set and topped off with the light bulb for the flames. The sentiment is from the Petite Banners stamp set and was die-cut with the coordinating banner die from Fancy Label Dies 3.
Here’s a look at the inside:
The light strand image, from Festive Greetings, reminded me of streamers, so I stamped some fun, colorful streamers on the inside of the birthday card.
Now for a look at my second non-Christmas card:
So, how about that-I used the light bulb and light strand to create a flower!
I started by stamping the light bulb five times (and yes, if you are more careful you will get a perfect circle in the middle!), then off-set a second layer five times. The light strand made a fun stem and the light bulb did double duty as a leaf. The center of the flower is from the Polka Dots stamp set and the lovely hello is from the Summer Fun stamp set.
Have you ever used a Christmas image/stamp set for non-Christmas cards? I would like if you share your ideas for the light bulb and light strand images.
Until next time…
