Using Holiday Stamps for Other Occasions


Hi readers! Happy Sunday! I’m delighted to have Yana Smakula back on the blog today as a guest! She is really getting creative with this Gifts of Love stamp set to make Birthday cards! I love the background pattern she made with the Christmas tree stamp and Duckling Ink! Genius!!  The Birthday Circle die really brought the whole design together, and the perfect way to polish off a card? Some pretty Clear Droplets of course!

Don’t forget to watch the video tutorial, and enjoy!

  1. These are so much fun, Yana! I love double duty stamps. Great way to keep them going for other occasions. ThanksSSS. ;)

  2. What a great idea!!! I love learning different ways to use my stamps and get more use out of them, rather than just what occasion they were intended for. Thank you for sharing this invaluable, but often forgotten, information!!

  3. Yana, you did an EXCELLENT job on these birthday cards with the Christmas card stamps. The way you made the backgrounds with the trees was very clever. I like it that you named the cat Stewart. :-)
