Happy Little Stampers - December Christmas Challenge


Hello Crafty Friends.  December has arrived and we've posted our final Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge of 2021 on the HLS blog.  Our last prompt for the year is Toys.

I have quite an extensive stash of holiday stamps and dies so imagine my surprise at discovering that I own only one teeny tiny toy image from one really old stamp set.  Well, I made it work.

That little rocking horse is my only toy.  I paired him with a newer Santa stamp and die set along with a new Christmas tree die to create my little scene.  I ink blended a white panel along the edges, added some sparkly white snow using a stencil and then die cut it with a vintage background die.  The sentiment was cut from green cardstock, stacked with an offset of white, and positioned above the scene.  I added a garland of white clear gems onto the tree for this finishing touches.  

I invite you to visit our blog for more inspiration and hope you find a bit of time in this busy season to play along!
