This Number Kinda Scared Me!

This Number Kinda Scared Me!

Days until Christmas- 103.

Over the weekend I started pulling my Christmas stamp sets and I felt a rush of thoughts and emotions.

Things like:

  • Didn’t we just do this?
  • How can this be coming up so quickly?
  • I kinda like Christmas music.
  • Christmas cookies are yummy
  • I have to pull all those decorations out of the attic? UGH!
  • I like stamping Christmas trees…

I decided to go to my trusty google and type in the question of the day….

How many days until Christmas?

This popped up and immediately I started laughing.

Obviously someone else feels the same way I do.  Maybe you are feeling the same?


Spirt of Christmas Begins

I realize for some of you this may be an easy task.

It’s not that I don’t love the season because honestly it’s my favorite.  I love EVERYTHING about it.  It just takes me a little while to get my Christmas groove on.


This weekend when I pulled the Christmas sets together and I started to create the Christmas mojo started happening.

It doesn’t take much because stamping during this season comes very naturally for me.

Unlike Spring and Summer where I sit and stare at floral images for hours….

Does this happen to anyone?

The first stamp set I started with was the Twinkle Trees Photopolymer stamp set.

I love the large tree in this stamp set and off the top of my head I knew I wanted to use it as the background instead of the focal point.

Pair Stamp Sets Together


I paired the Twinkle Trees stamp set with the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set.  I love the font in the greetings.

I’m a HUGE fan of non traditional colors for Christmas.  The pinks and blues are my favorites to use and of course I still use a little red and green at times.

All the products around this greeting/tag makes me put on my happy pants.

I love how adding a smidgen of gold really made this greeting pop a little more.

A few of my favorite products I used:

  • Red Glimmer Paper
  • Layering Circle Frameits
  • Bakers Twine Trio Pack
  • White Delicate Doilies
  • Fancy Frost Sequins
  • Candy Cane Designer Washi Tape

All of this love around the image exceeds my happiness level.  YAY YAY YAY.

Forget the Number and Create!

Once I got in my Christmas mood, the amount of days left until Christmas quickly left my crazy brain and I was on my way to a carefree creating session.


Don’t let the number get in your way.

Choose a stamp set you are in love with and start creating.

Tips & Tricks 

  • Use half of the circle scallop die cut instead of the whole circle.  I love how these tiny scallops look.
  • Wrap the Gold Twine like a bow underneath all of the elements and kept it in place using dimensionals.
  • Wash Tape- USE it.  Remember that you can add a fun element to your envelopes by putting a piece of Washi Tape across the bottom or seal the envelope with the Washi.  This looks AWESOME.
  • The Fine-Tip Glue Pen is perfect to keep sequins in place.
